Condition of Hotel - definitely not a 4 star hote. The hotel is ok, it's decent, but not luxurious. The general hotel conditions need some update. The room/bedding/carpet/bathroom are old.
Convenience - no doubt the bus stop across the street takes you to Manhattan. But it brings you only to the bus terminal. If you only want to shop at Macy's then that's great. If you want to go anywhere else (ground zero, soho, etc.) you need to take the subway. Next time when i go to NYC I will probably stay at another hotel that is close to subway as opposed to bus stop.
Friendliness of Staff - I guess in general ppl just aren't so friendly at NY? The breakfast was great, but the server were speaking to us in Spanish (I'm visibly Asian) and in a rude tone (had no idea what she was saying).
Shuttle from Hotel - we saw some shuttle buses outside of hotel and asked if they would take us to the subway. The front desk said yes, and the driver said yes. But instead, it took us to a train station, and the train only took as as far as where the bus would take us. At the end, we wasted half an hour getting to the train station where we could have just taken the bus across the street!
