We have just returned from a 5 night trip to NY for my husbands 40th. I booked a room with a King Size bed and paid an extra £40. This was well worth it, the beds and pillows were so comfortable, we had 5 great nights sleep. You also get complimentary breakfast so the bagels and donuts set you up nicely in the morning. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk to the Subway which takes 10 - 15mins into Times Square and are every 5mins. It is well worth paying for the 7 day unlimited subway ticket for $27 as soon as you arrive at the airport subway., you'll save a fortune.
The area where the hotel is situated does look very run down but it is perfectly safe. There is a coffee shop that sells all sorts right at the subway which is so convenient. There's also a Brazilian /bar around the corner which at first we thought against trying it out but on the last day we were pleasantly surprised and wished we'd have gone sooner. The Staff are very friendly and food and drink prices mush cheaper than in Manhattan.
We went to see the Lion King show which was fabulous and Shrek Forever at the cinema on 3D which I'd highly recommend. Probably best to get tickets for the shows out there as I ended up paying on Broadway.com and paying over the odds but it was memorial weekend. The weather was great, in its 70's most days but can get a little cool at night. Take the free Staten Island ferry as you get great views of the Statue of Liberty. We had an amazing time and can recommend this hotel for its comfort and location.
