Pretty decent experience at this hotel with my wife recently. Booked under an Expedia deal to include flights & hotel
We stayed there for 4 x nights. The location is great - 42nd &10th about 3 x blocks from Time Square, 42 Bus & Subway terminal - so it's easy to get around.
The hotel is ultra modern so if traditional is your cup of tea then this hotel isnt for you! We arrived on Sunday morning during their "Brunch". Dance music, trendy people, giant drag queens...pretty much every walk of trendy life!
Rooms are pretty basic but if you're only there to sleep & shower then you dont need anything more. The views were great (book an "Executive Room with View") if you want the same. Staff were excellent, especially Catherine at the front desk who was extremely helpful
B&B doesn't really apply to this hotel - free muffins & coffee is all you get however this was fine for us. If you want a proper breakfast you need to pay for it each morning.
One thing to note - if you buy the water taxi tickets from the hotel, these do NOT qualify as real tickets as you still have to queue up in line to get them changed to proper tickets & the hotel is also $1 more expensive. So if you think you're saving time by doing it through Yotel you're not.
If you want to rent bikes to ride around Central Park as we did, Yotel can arrange this for you for $3 vs. the $35 at the Bike & Roll shop. However, these bikes are not as nice as the bike shop ones (more racer like with no gears & harder saddle)
Overall, I would recommend this hotel for those seeking something that little bit different)
