Uhhh ... "Kelly R" from New Jersey, your fiance lied to you. "[A]lmost $300 for one night" is more than the rack rate for this establishment. Maybe something you want to keep in mind before you walk down the aisle with Mr. Moneybags.
We stayed Fri and Sat night after Thanksgiving and FOR THE PRICE, this place cannot be beaten. It's clean and mere blocks from Times Square, Herald Square, The Empire State Building, & Rockefeller Center. And if you want to go elsewhere, multiple subway lines are nearby.
Something that wasn't clear to my wife -- yes, you'll be sharing a bathroom with other guests but the bathrooms themselves are private baths. It's not like a gym or your college dorm. There are a number of full, private baths with locking doors on each floor. The hotel was fully booked the weekend we were there. Nonetheless, the bathroom a few short steps from our room (#515) was always available (and spotlessly clean). Also, you'll have a sink in your room ... which brings me to my only complaint about our entire stay, the water pressure on the 5th (i.e., top) floor is poor.
Three different people worked the front desk during our stay and we had a short conversation with our housekeeper. All were very nice. Yes, the walls are thin so if you're unlucky enough to stay near loud people ... put in the ear plugs you were smart enough to bring with you!
If you've read this far, you'll likely be surprised to hear that we'll most likely choose a hotel with bathrooms en suite for our next stay. This place is honestly a great deal but now that we're in our 30s ... errr ... 40s, my wife and I realize that paying the extra freight for your own bathroom is worth it. For you whipper-snappers, go for it!
Final thought, I've read in other reviews that the front desk is sometimes slow to buzz you through the front door. That wasn't our experience, although we returned after 1 a.m. Friday night and after midnight Saturday night.
