I haven't stayed in a NYC hotel in a while since my brother finally got an apartment of his own. No more roommates and frat-like atmosphere and hygiene - thank goodness. I just stayed here one night as we were evicted from my bro's apt when my parents arrived to squat in his apt for a couple of weeks.
Overall, a good hotel. It's actually right around the corner from my brother's apt and provides easy access to several train lines; in particular, the E train which will take you straight to the Air Train to JFK. The location may not be ideal for first -time NYC visitors as it's not in within walking distance to all the major sights, but for us it was perfect. The area actually does have a good number of restaurants nearby you just have to walk around or use Yelp to find the good ones. We went to a couple of cute French resturants that were nearby. Also close are Duane Read and a few other grocery stores.
The rooms were clean and large (by NYC standards). It's a very busy hotel and I paid more than I've ever paid for any hotel in my life! The shower did have mildew which is a huge peeve of mine. The best was so nice and comfy. I noticed lots of families coming in and out of this place so I imagine it's great for families - it was just me and the BF though.
The front desk staff were fine - not overly friendly or rude.
My main reasons for staying here were that it's close to my bro's apt and across the street from the E train so I was happy with my stay. I'd stay here again at a cheaper rate, but doubt I would stay here again paying the rate I did for one night. I'm just too frugal :)
