While overall we had a good experience at this hotel, there were a few drawbacks worth noting.
Pros--A great value, and the location is very convenient to Manhattan. I'm sure we would have paid $100 more per night to stay in Manhattan, yet this hotel is just minutes from midtown by subway, which is only a block away! Our room was clean and tastefully decorated, and the staff is very friendly.
Cons--That being said, we felt there were a few things lacking in the room, and the breakfast service left much to be desired.
First, the walls between rooms are not sound-proofed. We were kept up one night by the TV in the next room. Second, the only place to hang clothing in the room was a few hooks, and third, there wasn't much space around the sink in the bathroom to put toiletries. With more than one person per room, more vanity space is needed.
As for the breakfast, we noticed a few unsanitary practices, and the food was not replenished for those who came towards the end. With the number of people eating breakfast, it would have been nice to have more than one toaster available.
