This was our first stay on our trip to New York and we arrived at about 1am with the taxi driver telling us how dangerous the area was which didn't make us feel to safe. It is a nice hotel with bigger rooms than i expected, good cable channels, friendly staff, and excellent breakfast options down at the restaurant. The area to the right of the hotel is pretty dodgy, my friend was staying at a friends house 6 minute walk away from the hotel on the right side and her door man told her it would be much to dangerous to walk over to our house at 10pm. During the day we felt very safe, luckily because this is the direction of the nearest subway but we did walk around at night and it did seem to be very unsafe.
The left side is very safe day or night however and there are some nice deli's and places to eat as well as a convenient dairy down the road.
Overall a nice place who were very patient with us as we lost our bags on the airline which had all our stuff including wallets so they were patient enough to let us pay them the next day when our bag arrived.
Would recommend for all ages but would beware of going out at night for a stroll etcMore
