“Grim and grubby”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

This place is apparently due to be refurbished in the next two year, and really needs it. Rooms are really grim, carpets are old, decor and bathrooms are tired, rooms smell of smoke masked by horrible air freshener.

Wi-fi is slow and intermittent. It's free, but I'd rather pay for something that actually works.

Lobby bar has no atmosphere whatsoever.

Location is OK, but the hotel has little else to recommend it unfortunately.

Stayed December 2012, traveled on business

A perfect base to explore New York. Ideal location just slightly off the main drag. Lovely comfy beds in a good size room. The rooms could do with a lick of paint, but this didn't detract from the amazing time we had

A quick cab ride to the Javits makes it very convienent. Rooms nee a little TLC. Lots of great food on the block. Gym is available to hotel guests. Breakfast voucher for continental only was a little disappointing.

Room Tip: Higher floors should be a little quieter. 2nd floor was very street noisy.

nothing special here, but purchased well in advance, the price was right. Hotel alleges to have been renovated but it is not apparent. It is well worn, elevators come to a hard stop, it is a tired but adequate place

There were enough good reviews for us to give it a try. Other than it being an old facility, we were very pleased. Everyone was very nice and helpful. We arrived about 10 am. They held our bags and tried to accommodate us early. We were told to come back at 12. (Check in is 3)Our room had two queen beds, The heat was turned off and the window was cracked which was comfortable for us. (We were concerned about the heat since it had bad reviews) It was quiet on the 12th floor. We were very pleased and definitely will go back. We also met the owner who was very friendly adn chatty as well.

This hotel has nice large rooms. Plenty of space for two. It's a little old-fashioned, but everything is clean and functioning. The hotel is suited in a quiet piece of Manhattan, so we slept just fine. Also important: it's at walking distance from Central Park, Times Square, Broadway. Breakfast at the hotel was not really our cup of tea, but there's a great diner just around the corner!

Rooms are clean. Nice TV. Decent Internet. Employees are qualify and friendly. The food from the bar and restaurant is very good, but prices kind of funny like $4.50 for a single coke. Basic New York attractions are kind of close. In overall I'm very pleased with everything.
