I stayed here for 5 nights on my most recent visit to the city. I booked well in advance and was able to acquire a multi level suite. Check in and check out both went smoothly and the hotel clerk arranged a ride to Newark Int'l which was appreciated. Also appreciated was the ability to leave our suitcases there after we checked out as we had several hours to kill before it was time to head to the airport. I loved the view of the Manhattan bridge and Chinatown from the large upstairs window. The multi level room was awesome for my husband and I's needs; he is more of a morning person and I tend to stay up later. It was nice to have the a space to hang out in while the other slept, being that this is NYC and rooms tend to be tiny; it was also the only spot in the room where my husband could stash his suitcase easily.
As the title of this review states, the location of the CIMB is, in my opinion, its best feature. Two blocks north of the hotel, at the corner of Grand and Crystie, is the closest subway station. Here you can catch the B&D trains, both of which easily get one into midtown, near many of the city's popular sites. Also, 5-6 blocks east on Canal gets you to the F train which gets you quickly to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The Chinatown/Little Italy neighborhood is an interesting, safe location with lots of different food options and many things to see as well.
One thing that would make this room even better would be if they found a way to squeeze in a microwave and refrigerator, but as stated before, there's not a lot of extra room.
The only reason I am not rating this hotel 5 stars is the noise due to renovations. During the 3 weekdays during our stay, it started up at approximately 9am. I understand that renovations need to be done on hotels at some point, but it didn't make it any less annoying. Fortunately, we weren't in our room much.
I will likely stay here again on my next visit to NYC.
