My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at end of March 2012. Having booked after finding a recommendation in one of the sunday newspapers we were delighted with this place. Very clean and modern and spacious with great features including dishwasher and full kitchen equipment, washer and drier as well as a fitness room and free wifi. The rooftop bar was being renovated while we were there so we are looking forward to enjoying that on our next stay. Even though this contruction was happening and impacting on the small lobby it was kept clean and quiet and the staff were most helpful. Location has advantage of being in walking distance to many attractions and although close to it was much quieter and less frenetic than Times Square. One comment we would make is that the apartments facing the street would benefit from black out blinds to cut the glare from the Times Square lights at night. We would definitely recommend this hotel and will be back next time we visit New York.
