Wow. This property won't be for everyone, but it's perfect for me. Less than 1/3 the cost of a Hampton Inn and a great location. Friendly staff and genial atmosphere.
Here's what to expect: Immaculate cleanliness, plenty of hot water, helpful, friendly front desk staff, slow elevators (but, in characteristic ELCA good humor, acknowledged...you'll have to visit and use the elevator to see what I mean) a sink in your room, a toilet and shower "down the hall," two per floor, towel and washcloth and clean linens.
Also expect a great location 1.5 blocks from Union Square and the MTA station beneath. Two Starbucks within a block or two. Lots of neighborhood restaurants. Plenty of NYU students practicing their filming. Quiet rooms.
I spent two nights here and never was once unable to access the toilet or shower when I needed to.
What not to expect? Your own bathroom, little bottles of shampoo and conditioner, hair dryers, 40 inch HD tv (but you will have a nice small TV that does just fine; besides, you should be out experiencing the city, not watching TV).
While I'm not sure I could talk my wife into staying here, she's more of a Hilton Garden Inn sort of girl, this is a wonderful place to stay and I will definitely return when I next need to come to NYC.
