Hotel situated well to walk to numerous places to visit. The nearest subway was on 333rd. The hotel being on 30th.
The room (314) was fine, we had a twin room (2 double beds) had a clean tidy bathroom, with fluffy white towels. A hairdryer was in the bathroom, so we didn't need to take one. The view from the window was the back, which was OK, as we hardly had any time in the room, and also we didn't get the street noise. There was a coffee machine, plastic cups.... coffee provided, but no tea. We took some tea bags and milk from the breakfast room and used the coffee maker to boil the water so that was fine.
Breakfast..... waffles, pancakes, toast., bagels, doughnuts/pastries, cereals, yoghurt and fruit. Tea and coffee and fruit juice. The mega downfall was the plastic utensils, knives, forks, spoons the lot. Great let down. I did ask why this was so, and was told it was company policy as the hotel did not have any cooking facilities. They could not have proper plates and cutlery. Why could they not have a dishwasher??? What an environmental waste. Saw people fill (pile high) their (plastic) plates with food, and then leave it, people coming in and no food out.... What a shame people are greedy.
The staff we met were helpful, and gave us advise.
We flew to Newark airport and got the shuttle bus in for $17 each. When we tried to book it back with the same company they suddenly wanted $2 each for booking fee. $2 each bag we took. Beware. We took another company.
For value and location we would stay here again.
