We stayed here for a weekend from April 4th-6th, 2014. We found our deal on Kayak.com and figured we'd take it. We booked the "no refund" alternative to save even more money. After booking it, I did some research online (I know, should have been done before) and found this hotel listed on bedbugs.com! I was so nervous since we couldn't cancel our reservations. I went there preparing for there to be bugs and I was overly paranoid because I did so much reading on the internet about them…but to be honest, I don't think there is a place in NYC that doesn't have them now…it's becoming an epidemic. My friend who just works in Manhattan and lives in New Jersey brought them home from WORK! You can even pick them up on subways, trains, and taxis. Anyway, I went with my inspector tools (flashlight, magnifying glass, etc)
When we arrived, we were greeted with a friendly smile. Our room was on the 35th floor in the East Tower. The room was clean, quiet and a great size. The bathroom was also quite large. It gave us ample space for our three days in the city. On top of it all, I did my close inspection of the BB…didn't find any nor any "remnants" of them, although I could not take the headboard off of the bed and pictures off of the wall. I just figured WTH, let's just hope for the best. Well we were comfortable our entire stay and didn't get ONE bite (just to be safe, we plopped all of our things in the dryer before even entering our home).
So aside from my initial paranoia, we had a wonderful stay and I would definitely stay again. We had a wonderful view of the East River, Roosevelt Island, and the Queensboro Bridge. It is only a few blocks from Grand Central, so all trains lead to it, and taxi cabs are always out front or you can just go to 2nd Avenue and catch a cab.
One morning we woke up quite early before the cafe in the hotel opened and we were directed to a little cafe/deli on 2nd Avenue…I feel bad I cannot remember the name but it was on the West side of the street between 43rd and 44th streets. It had everything you could want! Go there to grab some food. The prices were SO affordable for NYC!
