me and another chaperone took 5 17 year old student to NYC for a week in June for Journalism workshops on Columbia. We chose this location because of it's access to the subways lines to go to Columbia or downtown to the sites. We LOVED the location of the hotel. We were 2 blocks from central park, 2 blocks from the subway and 1 block from an amazing grocery store. The area felt less touristy and more like a home to people who actually live in the city. We walked by schools and daycares, grocery stores and dr offices. This is the first time in 3 years (and 4 trips to NYC) that I have seen an area this "laid back" and residential. We were within 10 minutes from Columbia and 10 minutes from Times Square. We chose this hotel also because we could get a room that fit 5 people. One of our rooms (that I was in with the 4 girls) had 2 queen beds in the room, and a pull out sofa. My students said the beds were comfortable, but the sofa may have been some of the worst sleep I've ever had. The room wasn't cleaned thoroughly. The tub got a little grungier every day. We constantly had to call down for towels. Front desk staff wasn't overly helpful. It was nice that there was a breakfast buffet - definitly saved us money. And the price was great. Considering how little time we spent in the hotel, I wasn't too picky. If I had been able to sleep as well as my students, I have rated it higher. For the price, this hotel is worth while. But it's just an average hotel.
