Hilton Garden Inn or Yotel???

Visiting NYC for the first time late March with husband and two teenagers. I have both Yotel (queen and 2 bunks) and the Hilton Garden Inn Chelsea (2 queens) booked but I a unsure which would be best for us based on neighborhood, safety, views, comfort, etc. We are seeing 3 shows during our 4 days there so yotel would be good but we are also checking out lower Manhattan, Littel Italy, etc. My daughter wants to be near Times Square and the lights. Everyone else is easy to please. Both are the same in cost, including parking. Thanks for your help!

I don't know about the HGI, but I was thinking of the Yotel for the cool factor for our teens. However, once I read multiple reviews stating that the beds are quite uncomfortable, I changed my mind rather quickly. There's not much worse than a bad night's sleep on vacation. However, I would definitely say that if the cool factor is what you're after, it appears to have that in spades, not to mention it really does get great reviews on TA. I just can't even consider a place where I know ahead of time I may have a difficult time sleeping, as NY vacations aren't exactly what I'd consider relaxing. But I do love the city. :-)

The Yotel bathrooms are not very private at all. So unless you and the rest of the family are very comfortable with the whole lack of privacy I would suggest a different hotel.

I know my teens would not be too happy with a glass door and a curtain in front and then there are the gaps!!

Though the Yotel is very cool!
