Small hotel about three blocks from Grand Central Station so an easy walk to Times Square but far enough away to be quite quiet and not too much traffic noise.
Booked through Expedia so when we arrived check in was no problem. I had requested a quiet room and that is what we got as the window faced out onto a back court yard. Being on the 4th floor helped too.
The air con was very noisy but it drowned out any of the traffic noise so a great nights sleep was had for the three nights we were there.
Our room had two double beds and a bathroom. Fine size, newly decorated and very clean. The beds were made every day when we were out and supplies replenished.
One small elevator which is old fashioned but worked fine.
We were happy to hand our key in everytime we left and it was good to have a wee chat with the staff when we came back to collect it.
Free coffee just off reception and a comfortable lounge to sit in if you don't want to go back up to your room.
Check out was at 11 am but they were happy to keep our luggage until we were ready to leave for the airport at 4pm.
My only complaint - which is minor is that there is no mirror in the bedroom, only in the bathroom. There is a dressing table area in the bedroom but there was a picture hanging where the mirror should really have been but maybe this will be remedied at a later date.
Location is brilliant as is Scotty's diner which is just a 5 minute walk away.
Definitely happy to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in NYC.
