The location was excellent. We were only a couple of minutes walk from Times Square, Port Authority and from a large number of nice shops and restaurants on 9th Avenue. Penn station was also only a fairly short walk away. The buses exiting or entering the upper levels of Port authority did however pass right underneath which did create a fair bit of noise during the day but not enough to stop you from sleeping, the traffic in the city in general can be as loud in other hotels.
The staff on reception were extremely helpful and knowledgeable (Especially Chris) about the surrounding area including good places to eat. They also allowed us to keep our room key at the front desk so we didn't have to worry about who would return to the apartment first in our group.
The apartment itself was apparently newly refurbished and it looked as such. The kitchenette had a fridge, mircowave, toaster and a 2 ring stove/hobs. The only item we found it lacking was a carving/bread knife or other sharp knife although there was a chopping board so maybe it was just missing or had been taken by a previous guest.
As it is an apartment you do not get housekeeping but for us we preferred this.If you wanted extra towels the main desk were happy to provide them and roll away beds could be requested for $25 a night. For the quality of the apartment and location the price we paid was very reasonable.
