I am just back from a three day trip to NY. I had decided to stay at the Courtyard as cost of rooms in NY were through the roof - would I stay here again, probably not, here are the good and bad points.
ok the bad things -
while there were disruptions to the local Path trains to get into NY, after Hurr. Sandy, its still a good 20 mins to Herald Sq where you need to change to the metro - $4.50 cost each journey if you include the metro. at the end of a day shopping the last thing you might want is to have to face a metro trip to the path train and then a journey out to the hotel.
its not really that convenient for the airport either - you have to change trains 3 times and with bags its not the easiest.
the hotels its self, while looks modern on entry - the bedrooms are a little dated - its is very much a three star hotel. Towels while clean but were well used. Room had that faint smell of smoking possibly from past years
No inroom guide to hotel or local area and this a v small thing but no shower caps
Good things - rooms are big,love the area, quiet, there is also v little noise from other rooms, there a mall across the road with most of the main stores, there is decent supermarket v near, along with a Target and Best Buy all 5 mins walk away - and some good retaurants
