After blowing the budget on our first hotel in NYC (Cooper Square), we decided to be a little more conservative with our second one and chose The French Quarters Guest Apartments. We were expecting this to mean that we'd have to drop our standards too, not at all; this place is not only great value, but also delivers in every other respect.
The location is perfect if you want to do all the touristy-stuff (we'd booked a show for one night, and it's within walking distance of Broadway/Times Square). As the name would suggest, the rooms are set out more like guest apartments with a small kitchenette with fridge, sink and coffee/tea making facilities. The rooms themselves are fairly small, but perfectly fine for what we needed. They were clean, well-equipped and the bed was really comfortable. The free breakfast was great too: continental style with croissants, fruit and cereal, which you can enjoy outside on the patio.
The service from the staff, especially the general manager, was fantastic. Despite us arriving a few hours before we were meant to, he let us check-in straight away and personally showed us to our room. He was also more than happy to offer recommendations on where to eat, look after our luggage on our last day after we'd checked out, and organise us a taxi to get back to the airport. Truly first-class service and totally unexpected from such a small hotel.
I'd definitely consider staying here again, especially for the price. All-in-all we couldn't have asked for a better way to end our trip to NYC.
