My wife and I stayed here for five nights in September 2012. Our room had two huge and very comfortable beds, was very well-appointed with a large flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, a bar fridge and free wifi and had a view of Columbus Park and the new World Trade Centre (within walking distance), and the whole hotel was spotlessly clean. There is a free computer and printer in the lobby, but you have to use it while standing. They give you vouchers for free breakfast a few doors down the street; most of the food there is fried, but you can have fresh fruit instead of the fried stuff.
We loved the location facing a park in Chinatown, popular for tai chi and board games and also with the homeless people. The area is densely populated but the street is quite narrow and only one-way so there is not much traffic and we got a good night's sleep. There are lots of small grocery shops and restaurants nearby, and it's fun to explore this area with its mostly aged Chinese residents. It's a bit of a time warp, and we had to walk out to Canal Street to buy the New York Times. The subway on Canal Street is 5-10 minutes walk away. There are no taxis passing by, so you have to walk about 100m to the end of the street to hail one.
