This hotel is on the upper Westside of the city but directly across the street from the subway station so you can be downtown in a matter of minutes. I found the location to be great and convenient. The room was small but contained a micro wave, ref, iron and flat screen TV. We had the room with the private bath which was redone. I found the room to be clean, updated and well kept. It was very quiet. I did not hear any inside or outside noise at all. They supplied a hair dryer and a coffee maker as well. There is a really nice diner right next door that serves a variety of meals all day and the food is good and not pricey. They open at 6AM for early people. My only issue was the room was warm and you could not control the heat. The temp was 40 outside and we put the a/c on 75 to cool off the room. It actually made it comfortable and not cold. It you don't care about a warmer temp. you will be fine. The a/c didn't bother me as it made me comfortable. They have only one elevator which can run slow so don't wait until the last minute if you need to be somewhere fast.
I found the desk people helpful with directions, what subway numbers to take and any other questions we had. It is a great place and I will stay again on my next NYC visit.
