We stayed here in February 2014. The location is great! Restaurants, bars, breakfast places, shops, subway stations, bus stations etc. are all within a few blocks.
The check-in process was quick and the reception staff was courteous. The look and feel of the lobby could definitely be improved. It was dark and gloomy with strange blue lighting.
The elevators were rickety and could use some maintenance. We were fortunately on a higher floor and I was glad since the street noise was not that audible. The passageway leading to our room was quite narrow and it kept me wondering how someone a bit healthier would make their way through along with luggage.
The rooms were quite small as expected with most Manhattan hotel rooms. The decor, furniture & fixtures and electrical fittings left much to be desired but were working and served their purpose just fine.
The highlight for us was the small patio adjoining our room. It was perfect for us to enjoy the snowfall!
For the location, I think the price we paid for this hotel was ok.
