Booked a room with my wife to see a concert at Webster Hall. The concert hall is 5 blocks away. We were stuck in heavy rain on the way down, and they let us check in a little early (THANK YOU!) One of the reasons I stayed at Hotel 17 yet again was because it is near everything and is easy to get to. We did the express subway from Grand Central to Union Station. Some great bars and clubs Ninth Ward, Kingston Hall are both very chill places we like to visit at night.
We had a nice sized room. Very similar to the one we had in September. This time we stayed on the second floor and not all the way up on 8. There is only one elevator, and it's an old one. Kind of romantic the first couple of times. I prefer staying on the lower floors, just in case the lift is in use and I don't want to wait. Did not have to wait for the shower or bathroom, and the facilities were clean as usual.
The staff has been pretty cool with us each time we visit. Others may not have had a good experience, but I have never had a reason to complain to them.
The steam heat was a little much, but we could crack the window open a little. The TVstand/desk/closet combination is a clever way to make the most of space. We had two windows with a view of the street, and a sink in our room to wash up a little. I took my shower late in the morning before checkout, and most of the hot water was gone by then. It was a fast shower. Serves me right. No problem. The room was clean, and I will most certainly return yet again.
I don't expect much from the hotel, other than a good price and a clean room, but I have come to really appreciate the old world charm that the rooms have. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
