We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2013 and booked the hotel through hotwire.
The hotel is located within walking distance to many of NYC's subway lines. You a short walk away from the 4/6 trains, the N/R trains, and the B/D/F/M trains - making it easy to get anywhere in the city. It's about a 15 minute walk to Penn Station or Grand Central. The Empire State Building is right around the corner and there is lots of shopping within walking distance along 34th street (including Macy's flagship store at Herald Square).
This was a noticeably older hotel, with some attempts at "updating". Most importantly though, it was clean. Our room was small, as one would expect in Manhattan, but since most who visit NYC intend on seeing the city and not lounging in their room, this shouldn't be a problem to most. Free coffee and tea offered each morning in the lobby and free working wifi in our room.
The staff was very friendly - everyone we encountered during our stay was genuinely pleasant. It was nice that the staff made the effort to acknowledge you each time you left and returned.
Overall, this is a good "no-frills" hotel for those looking for a good location to explore NYC from and not wanting to be in the heart of midtown or Times Square.
