A great place to stay in New York. It is close to the Sub and really easy to find your way to down town or the Village. I would possibly look for something a little closer to the Village or Time Square when I come back. The staff were great and it is run more like a hotel. The rooms are clean and showers and toilets are cleaned regularly. My only 2 real criticisms are that the internet can be hit and miss when the foyer is full and the breakfasts are a little bit of a waste of money as there is not much choice. I would rather make my own in their large kitchen. Lots of activities. Also it is a no alcohol but if you are discreet about the staff seem to not have too much fuss.
