For starters, if you get a room number that starts with "7," ask for a different floor. You might think that means the seventh floor, but you would be quite wrong. It means the basement, with windows at sidewalk level and curtains that can't be opened (really can't be opened, not that you'd want to open them). Desk staff pleasant with me but bickering with each other. Oh, AND, it's not in SOHO! Unless being on the south side of Houston makes it in Soho. It's more like north edge of Little Italy or something, and convenient enough to the east village but definitely not Soho. For the price, I guess that's what you get. It's true that Whole Foods is very convenient to this place. It is clean but the rooms are small. I don't *not* recommend this place but the "7" = basement trick was a bummer and I was too hot and tired to deal with it at the time.
