We stayed at the Doubletree Metropolitan as part of our wedding anniversary trip.
It's located nicely on E51st & Lexington and great if you want to wander around New York - quite a few Delis and Fast Food outlets within 30 seconds walk of the door.
The room itself was pretty basic, the lock on the bathroom door was busted but since it was just the two of us in the room that didn't really matter. The hotel staff were friendly, with a nice bar downstairs.
The subway station is just around the corner (we could see it from the room) and the famous grate where Marilyn Monroe got her skirt blown up - sadly my wife didn't want to re-create the scene.....
The local fire station is just next door, so it can be a bit noisy sometimes but hey, you're in the city that never sleeps and you get used to the background noise pretty quickly.
All in all a nice pleasant hotel that could just do with a bit of TLC but great as a base to explore NYC from :-)
