This hotel wasn't built when we booked it through hotwire, so we really were risking it. But for the amazing price of $101 per night, we couldn't turn it down. Being a new hotel, when we went in November 09, it had only been lived in for approx. 4/5 months, so the rooms, the fixtures, fittings and the beds were all fairly new.
We were greeted by a friendly lady in the reception, who checked us in and gave us warm complimentary cookies - much needed after a long and early flight from the UK! We hot-footed it to our room on the 7th floor - no wait for the lift as others have reported. Room was small but perfectly formed for our 5 night stay. Bathroom was clean and well maintained. We had an issue with water coming from a ceiling fan one morning, but called reception and they got a handyman on the case that morning. So all fixed for when we got back to the hotel in the afternoon.
The location is great, not far from Madison Square Garden, Macy's etc. and a short walk from Times Sq. The subway was quite close too. There was a lovely organic cafe just around the corner from the hotel, where we had breakfast most days - delicious bagels and fresh juice.
I would recommend this hotel to others, we had a really enjoyable stay there and for the price we got it for it was perfect.
I'd say check on Hotwire if you're not concerned which particular hotel to stay in, you just choose the area you want to be in and www.betterbidding.com helps when trying to identify the exact hotel. It worked out really well for us.
