Very pleased with our stay- 5 nights during Christmas.
Very well located- 5 minutes walk to Empire State Building and 2 minutes to Underground.
The room, though small and a bit dated (double standard room type), was nice and clean and had everything you needed including a mini fridge and a safe while the bed was very comfortable and the heating was on radiator easy to adjust, but a bit noisy.
Service was very good- staff is friendly and helpful, but then again all Americans are like that!
We had breakfast included - which was very handy as you have a few choices of cereal, fruit, pastries and coffee/tea and when you're not a morning person it's nice to know you don't have to go looking for a place to have breakfast.
You also get free wifi- again very good to have when you are a tourist and they also had a few leaflets and brochures/magazines with places to visit and maps although we already had our plans, but still very handy as they were free.
We found that the best means of transportation was by underground - we got a 7 days pass for 30 USD per person and just for your information, the taxi to JFK is around 60 USD plus tip which in the States is an absolute must for any kind of service, so be prepared!
We definitely recommend this hotel if you are on a budget and you are not looking for luxury but a nice, comfy and clean hotel in a good location! The only thing to ask for specifically when you check-in would be a nice view, which we didn't have but weren't too bothered about it.
We also recommend the Mercury Bar located on the corner of 46th and 9th - easy to locate if you do the Circle Line Cruise, very nice American style, good service and good food!
Very nice experience, we absolutely LOVED New York!
