“Great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

The staff were so friendly. We had a 9 month old boy and he was a delight to all staff. Even when he threw up all over the reception sitting area. The location is great but the surrounding area isn't. The hotel is located right next to the projects housing. The station is 2 mins away and can take you into Times Square in 10 mins. They had a high chair for baby at breakfast which was great. The breakfast options were great but not a lot of space to eat. The room size was ok, could have been a bit bigger. The downside was the lifts where really slow. Waiting up to 10 mins for one.

Overall it was Great stay, I would recommend it to my friends but would warn them about the area it's in.

Room Tip: Get a room on the floors you can walk up too as the lifts are really slow.

If you know your way around the city, this hotel is a great value in New York. Not a great neighborhood as far as restaurants and other amenities but one block from the subway and two stops to midtown Manhattan. Clean, comfortable room with pleasant front desk staff and a full breakfast included. Good (and quiet) air conditioning and good internet service (included).

This hotel has the potential to be really good but is let down by it's service. On arrival at the hotel we were told we had to pay again. I booked through a travel agent on a advance purchase rate but the girl on the desk did not understand our confirmation and insisted to repay. even though the confirmation clearly stated the hotel should bill back to the travel agent. (Hotel Beds) No consideration we had been traveling for a long time and we just wanted our beds it took over a hour to check in! We had paid for a Manhattan skyline view and were given a room overlooking a store. When I asked to speak to a duty manager I was told there was not one. The next day I got up early to resolve this matter and we were told we had to pay to store our bags and they would switch our rooms when one became available. Such a shame because New York is a terrific place to visit but even then this hotel is not worth a visit. On a better note the room themselves were very spacious and clean. The free breakfast was good quality and much appreciated.

Room Tip: Manhattan sky line room

Very misleading pictures, room was clean, service was terrible. Had to ask for washcloths every night, there were 4 of us in the room and NOT 1 time did they leave 4. Also, the TV was un-viewable and they told me it was because of the storm, but when the storm went away the TV never worked anyway. Had to wait about a half hour to check in and it was around 4:45 pm? The area is actually pretty scary. The walk to subway is very close, but it's a pretty scary neighborhood.

Close to F train, clean rooms with couch , limited parking on site for a fee, good breakfast with lots of choice, lots of sirens but that's NYC. Not far from Manhattan. Clean bathrooms, nice looking building and rooms tastefully decorated.
