I stayed at the Hudson during 2 successive weeks in July, and based on my reading of other recent TripAdvisor reviews was able to negotiate an enhanced experience.
Readers of the reviews will already understand that this hotel (apparently in a converted YWCA building) has very small rooms. One desk clerk explained this as "New York style rooms." That said, the rooms in corners or where corridors turn are somewhat larger than the rooms along straight corridors.
When I checked in the clerk asked me if I'd ever stayed with them before. I said, "unfortunately yes," noted the micro room (and micro bathroom) size and said that the only reason I was back involved my consulting gig with Fordham University (across the street). I also asked, "please do not put me in a room right over the noisy bar." The helpful clerk gave me a slightly larger corner room, a free bottle of Voss water, and coupons for a continental breakfast! The same thing happened when I returned for three days the next week with a different desk clerk.
So--it seems that politely engaging in self advocacy may get you a room upgrade. The rooms are comfortable (bed especially) although dimly lit with tiny work desk. Stil, it's inexpensive for NYC.
