It really depends on what you're up to in NYC in order to say if this hotel is good or not. I was in NYC for 3 days and 2 nights dedicated to getting to know Manhattan as much as my feet and money would allow me to and obviously not using any tour/sighseeing service. So the location was awesome but the hotel is overpiced as any other hotel in Manhattan. I didn't try the breakfast service as it was also overpriced and as there were many coffe shops around. The room fit my needs in terms of space as I only used it to sleep and get myself changed, not a 5 star room but also not the worst room I've ever had. Unfortunately the hotel was very crowded and I was not able to check in earlier than 1:30pm. That was not very pleasant as my flight arrived JFK at 6am and I was in Mahattan at 9am. Frontdesk people? The first one I spoke to was not the most polite one but then I was lucky enough to have nice people there the other time. The luggage storage service is useful but it would really be better if we simply could check in earlier like 10am or at most 12pm. Oh, and subway is really on the corner of the avenue. I would definately consider doubletree for the next trips to NYC.
