Stayed here for 1 night prior to our flight back to the UK. We had stayed in Manhatten at the start of our holiday but choose this due to proximity to Airports for our return. It's description as a quality budget hotel is spot on but at the highest spectrum of my perception of a budget hotel. We had splashed out in Manhatten with a superb hotel near Times Square at the start of our holiday but paid a lot for it and in comparison this hotel is great value. Location to Manhatten very good but we wanted to eat close by as arrived fairly late. Quick and efficient check-in and manager pointed us in the right direction for lots of local restaurants on 36th Street just 4 blocks down. Size of room and facilities absolutely superb for our family including teenage son. We visited the Museum of Moving Images on 35th Street before our flight and only 20 minutes walk from the hotel. We felt safe at night and day but as others mention it does over look industrial type buildings but do not let this put you off based on overall package you get here. The thing that does put this hotel in the top end category is the service and small points such as coffee making facility in room, dressing gowns, Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries, complimentary breakfast. I was really impressed with the management. The Manager was there when we arrived at 9 pm, recommended location for choice of restaurants, was there for breakfast and made sure service was efficient and visible in reception. Very impressive and no doubt that this drives the quality, efficiency and great value that this hotel provides.
