Walking distance to all mid-town attractions (Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Empire State Building, Broadway Theaters and more), and subway entrance one block away.
To get to the hotel from JFK we took the AirTrain to Jamaica Station then took LIRR from Jamaica station heading to New York City / Penn Station. (You can take the subway but takes over 30 minutes longer.) From Penn Station exit out the W 34th St toward 8th Ave. and walk up 8th Ave the five blocks to W 39th St. Took us about 10 minutes to walk to the hotel, all in all it was exactly one hour from when we got our bags at baggage claim to arrival at the hotel.
The Front Desk staff was excellent at check-in, and later when we asked for recommendations for a restaurant nearby they recommended the Carbone Ristorante just around the block from the hotel. This is a very good, family owned, Italian restaurant, very small, only about six tables and bar but the food was fantastic (highly recommend their pizza’s).
Room staff was also great, gave us extra coffee packages when we asked for them, and room was always clean when we got back from sightseeing.
The hotel rooms are small but clean and quiet. The Tassimo One Cup Coffee Makers in the rooms make great coffee, our room did not have a bath tub, which we would have liked, but there was nothing wrong with the shower. Our room was on the 11th floor and did not face the street; it was very quiet, with no street noise at all.
The breakfast is included in the room rate, buffet style, choice of cold cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage, oatmeal, bagels, toast, coffee, you get the idea, nothing to brag about but nothing wrong with it either.
The location and affordable price are two of the best reason to stay at this hotel, it like 6 blocks from everything!
