So we stayed there for 3 nights while attending a meeting in NYC and we were very VERY pleased.
First the location, well it's in Harlem, but nowadays it is a safe neighborhood (and a great one) just like the rest of Manhattan. It's actually quite practical as it is located about 15min walking distance from Columbia U. and has the subway nearby. It's also close from all the nice stuff you want to see in Harlem like the Apollo theater. We came back to the hotel several times really late and always felt super safe.
The staff is super nice, very welcoming, doing anything they can to make you feel at home.
Price is actually reasonable for NYC. We paid 230$ a night (including taxes) for a big bedroom with a king size bed for 2 people. Note that breakfast is not included however you can get a 5$ voucher every day if you just hang on your door a sign saying they don't have to make the room (and honestly seeing how when you get in, it's pristine clean, you don't need them to redo the room the day after!)
Breakfast is really good. They have actually quite good coffee (which is free btw) and excellent muffins!
They're open 24h so it's really nice when you want to check in late and they also have a storage room to leave your stuff and enjoy your last day in NYC before you leave. The wifi is very good and you get it in the rooms and not just in the lobby.
The bedrooms are very spacious with a huge bed which is soooo comfortable. They have a safe and a fridge and tea/coffee, big TV, plenty of storage space. Only little problem, the AC is loud and you definitely need it on during summer!
But definitely a great hotel in a great neighborhood (especially if you like jazz) and I really would recommend it. Also if you don't really know where to go or what to do in the evening, ask at the front desk, they'll give you plenty of fliers and directions...
