A wonderful property in the Hell's Kitchen/Garment District. Personally, I found the room smaller than I had hoped, but at least it was quiet. The elevators are the size of the Tardis on Doctor Who, but at least rapid. I was surprised that front desk staff (somehow) remembered my name and greeted me every time I entered the property.
For those going to Madison Square Garden or Penn Station, it is an easy 8 minute walk from the hotel. This feature made it especially easy to arrive EWR and take the AirTrain. Javitz center is about 12 minutes away - again an easy walk.
36th Street is not as Glitzy as Times Square, but no concern over safety. Around the corner on 8th Ave are a number of fast food empires - down towards Penn is the Stage Deli and Tick Tock diner.
The A/C/E subway station at 34th & 8th is just 5 minutes away - all in all, a great place to stay while in Manhattan.
There are three negatives: 1: the bar is puny - gong with the theme that most of the hotel is more minuscule than "usual." 2: At check in I was told that there is a 24-hour Business Center - which turned out to be three computers occupying booths in the restaurant area - the printer is on the floor around the corner. 3: The restaurant staff could use a tad bit more training. They were pushing the breakfast buffet warning the cooked to order could take as long as 15 minutes (it didn't). With an early seating, there was no coffee ready. It was difficult to get service.
That being said- I still recommend this place and plan to stay here again.
