This hotel on a map, seems central (Times Square is, after all a few blocks away), BUT if you like to travel by subway it is a bit off the beaten path. This is my third time in NYC in the past year, and the other hotels I stayed at this year and in previous years were much closer to subways. For example, taking the green line up to the Met isn't too easy from there...if you can't walk long distances, the blocks are long going East-West to the Times Square station, for example. This is definitely a tourist hotel and you won't be in a neighborhood with quainter boutiques and restaurants, or bump into as many local New Yorkers, compared to the upper east or west sides, etc.
However, the actual hotel was a typical Hampton with friendly staff. At breakfast the staff went out of the way to greet me and I sensed a lot of camaraderie amongst themselves, saying hello or good morning to each other. I loved that the hotel had a business center and a modern, smallish gym. I wouldn't say it was outstanding, but have no complaints either. The rooms were smaller but extremely quiet and clean.
