We stayed here for 5 nights, and found the kitchenette one of the best features. It allowed us to cook our own breakfast each morning using supplies from the wonderful stores right across the street. The room was spacious and clean, but just a bit noisy for my liking with doors slamming and general noise from neighbouring rooms. Nothing earplugs won't fix. Location is excellent. This side of town is just so quiet and lovely, with a short stroll to Central Park and an even shorter walk to the Subway. Much better than the noise of Times Square. You can feel like a local New Yorker staying here. The hotel has everything you could want for a comfortable stay in this very busy City.
