This hotel is in an odd place....just over the George Washington Bridge which itself is very 'uptown'. To get here by Public transport is a real pain and although the hotel offer a shuttle service to and from the bridge it's not evident where to catch it. A taxi to the bridge is $6, but back from the bridge $11 due to road layout. Although it's v close you cannot walk! From there you take any 'bus' for $2 to pick up the subway. A taxi will charge you the $10 toll over the bridge.
The room was what you would expect really - spacious, clean with everything needed for an overnight stay.
The staff weren't the best though - they expected you to already have local knowledge of the area and how the hotel worked. Any question seemed a trial to them, even though they didn't seem to be particularly busy.
Breakfast was nice if not confusing - like most places in America you are presented with an overwhelming number of options, so I found it easier to stick to the buffet.
Didn't have the chance to use the exercise facilities.
I cannot see a reason why I would travel back here.
