a bit confusing to get in...you have to buzz to get in, take the elevator (pull the door open when the light comes on) to the 5th floor to check in.
comfortable bed, very cool decor. great location. 1/2 block from the train.
they were very nice. upgraded my room, allowed me to check out a day early (got the flu) without charging me the last night.
one drawback (and it's not small, though perhaps avoidable). the rooms facing the 'alley' are LOUD. like, really loud. i lived in nyc for 13 years and i found this intolerable. the temperature control is opening the window. and there is a bar directly across the alley. there was a very inebriated loud laugher that almost did not survive his night out (i think i mentioned i was sick). that goes on until ~2:30 am. then they start throwing around what sounds like bags of glass at around 5:30 am. i don't know what they were doing but seriously? awful. not the hotel's fault, but...
get a room facing the courtyard. your blood pressure will thank you.
