We had a fantastic stay here for five days in June, 2010. It had all the hip, modern design of a W hotel, but with friendly and helpful staff that make you feel at ease and at home.
Staff: Really can't say enough good things about these guys -- they were quick to offer advice on restaurants, bars, directions and sights -- going so far as printing out walking maps to help us navigate the Big City and fielding calls when we were out and about to look up the best cheesecake joint in our vicinity.
Amenities: Lobby has three iMacs and there's never a long wait for one of them. Clean, small (hey - it's Manhattan!) rooms with comfortable beds and ipod-friendly clock-radios and WiFi throughout.
Location: It's got a subway station on the block and is located on the western edge of the midtown/times square area, so you can hit Restaurant Row, the Theater District, Times Square, and the eateries and bars on 9th (technically Hell's Kitchen) with short walks.
Peeves: Minor, but...A) skip the breakfast (not worth $14). B) showers put form over function -- difficult access to faucet means you'll get doused with cold shower water when you start it up.
