We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. All of the excellent reviews of this hotel are accurate! Upon arrival we were offered fresh iced tea and the front desk accommodated our slightly early check in. The lobby is tiny, but modern looking.
Our room was EXACTLY as pictured. Our bed was SO comfortable! We slept great while staying here. The noise on the street was not a problem at all (we stayed on the 21st floor). Our room was equipped with a Keurig coffee machine that came with tea and coffee daily. The room has a little desk, armoire, flat screen TV, dresser, iPod dock/alarm clock and programmable safe. The bathroom was modern and the shower was one of the best I have ever used in a hotel! The turndown service was very nice to come home to at night. They leave an updated weather forecast for the following day.
As some other reviewers stated, yes, the hotel is RIGHT across from the Port Authority, but it is ALSO RIGHT in the heart of Times Square and all the Theaters. I guess there are pros and cons anywhere you stay… The Port Authority has lots of police presence, so we were not uneasy about the location at all. There were also Subway entrances less than a minute’s walk down the street which was convenient. If you walk with a purpose and at least ACT like you know where you’re going and what you’re doing, I would not anticipate a problem. Honestly, we saw sketchier people hanging around the tourist spots than near our hotel. We would definitely stay here again.
