Quiet residential area, Turtle Bay, on E. 52 st between 2nd and 3rd Aves. Welcoming lobby with water always available. Bar and grill friendly and reasonable. Like the shrimp tacos! As rooms include small fridge and microwave, the Food Emporium on 2nd Av is very convenient. Great way to save some $$. Also has laundry room and fitness center. Very convenient to subways and most everyplace is walkable. Not as crowded as West Side hotels. Beds very comfortable, bathroom well appointed. Closet on the small side. This will be my new place to stay in the city.
