This hotel has a great atmosphere. It is a division of the W Hotels so it has swank and modern decor. There is a great lobby with a good seating area and bar. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious for New York although dresser drawers in the guest rooms would have been nice. There was closet space, cubby areas for clothes, coffee maker, free wi-fi, a safe and mini-fridge in the room. The staff was super friendly, nice and helpful. There is no hotel restaurant but food options nearby.
A bonus for me was that our stay included a Friday night where they were having a live band in the bar area that played some Nu-Soul music. It wasn't too noisy and they ended at an appropriate time. It added some liveliness to the hotel!
The location is great - only a block and a half from the A-train and two blocks from the historic Apollo Theater. There is also a nice little grocery market - Best Yet Foods - down the street that has prepared foods, a deli and upscale grocery items - similar items you would find at a Whole Foods. They also sell food (sandwiches and breakfast items) in the hotel lobby if you don't want to take a walk. There are a lot of street vendors in the day time and along 125th so the shopping is fun and eclectic. The room was more reasonably priced than hotels in Midtown. The neighborhood is not as developed as other parts of the city but I felt safe the whole time I was there. All in all a hotel I would stay at again.
