Stayed here in September 2012 as part of a round world trip and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Found it on gaycities.com as I was looking for gay or gay friendly accommodation. Had a room on the 1st floor at the back of the Inn with ensuite (Room 10). The window looked out onto the back of other buildings but you're there to see things not stay in your room. Air conditioning works well and strong even though if it was a little noisy on high speeds. Booked it as it was close to a lot of places I was going to around Chelsea and Greenwich Village and found it very clean, quiet and comfortable. I was initially supposed to be staying for 5 days then going to Portland then coming back for a night before going to SF but Portland fell through - they were able to accommodate me for one of the extra nights but not in the same room. I had no noise from any other rooms and found the bed very comfortable. Small fridge in the closet; (as is the room safe) which was great for storing drinks and munchies. Several small grocery stores nearby. Bathroom spotless and water pressure was good in the shower. Only gripe was that the drinking cups were plastic.
Breakfast included; which looked very tasty (I don't eat breakfast); as was internet and the speed was fairly good for that. Had to go down to reception and get another internet voucher several times - the voucher is good for 24 hours usage (which lasts me several nights).
They stored my luggage for me while I had to stay in another hotel for 1 night (after a trip to Maine fell through) and when I came back I was able to leave my large case down at reception rather than lugging a heavy case up all the stairs, as the room this time was on the top floor; The room this time overlooked West 22nd St and share bathroom which was next door. Again clean bathroom and good water pressure. Found that there is also a small rooftop area which gives a decent view of the surrounding area and good for smokers and they had entertainment up there one night while I was at the hotel. I also got reception to book me a town car for my next airport trip which arrived on time.
To sum it up - good friendly service, clean comfortable rooms and breakfast and wifi included. What more do you want. And the price- about $220USD per night- which is good for NYC. I would definitley stay there again.
