This hotel's virtues are its spacious and clean rooms and bathrooms, pre-war thick walls to dampen noise, comfortable beds, mini-fridges, and a reasonable lobby seating area with free wifi and local newspapers.
There also is a rooftop bar open in the warmer months with a stunning view, an organic hamburger place with all-day room service meals, and professional front desk staff.
However, given what one now pays per night for a hotel in Manhattan during much of the year, I have to mention what is missing: drinkable in-room coffee, higher-end bathroom amenities, (and along with every other similar Manhattan hotel) free wifi in the room and a reliable spectrum of free television channels.
Also, be warned that the lobby and hamburger place can fill up with screaming young partygoers in the evening, and the lobby can get crowded with vacationing young families during the day. Perhaps not the best choice for business or older travelers.
