We stayed in NYC for 4 nights at the beginning of october and we are a married couple in our mid 20's.
Location: one word.....EXCELLENT!!! The hotel is 1 minute from the Rockefeller centre/top of the rock and about a 5-10 min tube ride to Times Square but you can walk there in under 15 minutes tops. Same time to Central Park, maybe a bit less. Not noisy either. Nearest tube station is 1 min away at the Rockefeller Centre.
Hotel: really pleased with the hotel. We are always a bit dubious when we read bad reviews but we were very impressed. The rooms were perfect for what we needed which was just as a place to sleep because what else do you need when your in New York?! Our flight arrived at 6am and usual check-in time is not till 2pm but they managed to give us a room which was available so we checked in straight away. There is a restaurant at the hotel but we didn't use it.
The staff were great, as in we were really impressed. They all went out of their way to help us organise our day, give advice and they even leant us a NYC guide book because we forgot ours. I can't talk highly enough about them.
There is wifi in the hotel but we only managed to get it in the lobby. Our room was on the 7th floor and we couldn't access it.
Rooms: Beds were comfy, decent sized bathrooms, towels and toiletries provided. Tv and air con. Perfect for what we wanted and the price we paid. There is no safe but valuables can be locked in hotel safe (this can only be accessed by hotel manager and he is only there Monday to Friday).
Good points: Location location location!!!! Price. Staff were very friendly.
Bad points : wifi not accessible through the whole hotel. No safe in room. (Even though these are bad points this didn't really affect us). Wen you realise the location of the hotel it wins leaps and bounds.
Advice for NYC: buy the NYC pass. It's saves you A LOT of money on attractions. We worked out it saved us nearly £300. Also buy an unlimited metro pass which you can get from the subway stations. We did a 7 day pass and its well worth the $29 per person. We used the subway a lot and its really easy to use and quick. Trains go frequently.
Forget all the negative reviews of this place. If we return we WILL stay here. Top job.
