The one thing that stand out at this hotel is location, location, location! It was a two second walk to the nearest subway station, the Empire State was around the corner, a ten minute walk down to Times Square, and dozens (and I mean, dozens) of major attractions within a max 15 minute walking radius! That was the very best part of this hotel, and if you're planning a stay in Midtown, for the price, it doesn't get better than this.
The breakfasts had quite a bit of selection, but was slightly lacking in quality. Then again, it was free, so it was a huge benefit to have something available early in the morning. As well, customer service was really helpful when it came to accommodating early check-in and late check-out, which was really nice. Only major negative was the fact that the elevator was broken during the stay, so taking the stairs was often faster than waiting for one elevator going through 20+ floors.
While the original smell of cleaning products was there when we arrived, and the room was quite small (well it is Manhattan!), the hotel is overall one of the best choices for a short stay in New York!
