If you love NYC and you hate the anonymous chain hotels, this is the place to stay. Even the smallest room is large and comfortable enough for two people and their luggage, and they are all well equipped, beautifully decorated and surprisingly quiet and silent. And breakfast in the lovely theater's cafe' is amazing!! You must absolutely try the waffles, and the frittata made on the waffle line! The location is wonderful. You will be just steps away from the Hudson River Park, one of the most exciting walks in NY, from Chinatown and its yummy eateries, from West Broadway and Soho and all the best shopping, from Downtown Ny and from the subway (line 1) that takes you straight to Time Square or Columbus Circle. And - last but not least- the owners, at the Canal Park Inn, are so kind, warm and interesting to talk to, and full of good advises for the traveller. The price/quality ratio is excellent. Absolutely reccomended.
