My partner and I, young professional couple in our early 30s, spent a weekend in NYC and stayed here for three nights in late April. We got the reservation by bidding on priceline, so the cost was exceptionally low. But even if we were paying posted rate (which is generally quite reasonable for NYC standard), I would still consider our stay a pretty decent one.
The location being right in midtown was very convenient. It is a busy area by day, but at night the street it was on was fairly quiet, though it not far from night life. Like any Midtown Manhattan location, getting around is quite easy.
We checked in very early in the day, and were initially given a room on the second floor, with view of the scaffolding for building renovation. We requested a change, and was given a room on the eighth floor later in the day. Our window looks right on to Rockefeller Plaza, which is a pretty neat scene.
The room itself felt a bit like a very upscale college dorm room, but of reasonably good size for NYC. The décor was a bit dated and the room lacks much natural lighting, but overall it was a reasonably comfortable room, clean and well maintained. The wifi in the room worked quite well. The chilled purified water dispenser on each floor was a great idea.
We took advantage of the access to the Terrace Club next door at Club Quarters for brunch on Saturday. It was a very pleasant way to spend Saturday morning. Our interaction with the staff was limited, which is generally a good sign (i.e. no need for us to raise any issues). In the few instances that we did interacted with them, they were helpful and courteous.
Overall, a reasonably good stay, for a great price.
