Located in one of the busiest districts of New York - right on the edge of Rockefeller Plaza, this gem of a hotel is the perfectly placed for any city trip visitor. Within five minutes you're at the Subway or on Broadway. It's surrounded by restaurants, bars and cafe's. You're right next door to to Radio City Music Hall and nothing beats the view from the Top of the Rock. For shopping you can either enter the Rockefeller Center or take another five minute walk to 5th Avenue or Times Square. Walk north and in 10-15 minutes you're at the entrance to Central Park and you will have passed the Museum of Modern Art (and with a little side-step Hooters). Rooms are not big but nicely decorated. Personnel is nice and very helpful.

Very small hotel which we LOVED. You can get in and out easily and it is great location. We didn't need a big or fancy room because we didn't spend much time in it so this was perfect. I love that it didn't feel like a hotel room. Very clean.

Best part was the staff!!! Super nice and they knew our names every time we returned.

Will stay here on our next visit for sure.

Room Tip: Club level is nice and quiet.

Love this boutique hotel, mainly for its location. It is clean and very bare bones yet practical accommodations (think Ikea-type furniture). The rooms have comfortable set-ups. The front desk folks are wonderful. They have bottle and water stations on every floor and a nice lounge on the second floor with coffee station and wifi. (This was great for when I had arrived early and needed a place to work before my meetings.)

The location is perfect for tourist or midtown office folks alike. Subway is right down the block at Radio City.

My only "complaint" is with the linens. I wish they had better sheets and comforters. The comforter doesn't have a duvet cover, and I am never quite sure if the comforters have been laundered.

Room Tip: You can see 30 Rock. Go and get coffee and stand outside the Today Show.

This was my husband and I first visit to New York. We chose this hotel because of its location, and because of the nice reviews that we had read about it on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The location was great. The room was satisfactory, as we only booked a small room because we did not plan to spend much time there anyway. Everything was clean, the only problem that we had was that the air ventilation in our bathroom was not working. Enjoyable stay. Tonia H.

We got this hotel as part of a vacation package. It's in a great location.Great amenities. My room has a microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom is beautifully decorated and doesn't feel cramped. There's space because it's wisely used, e.g., a seat tucked under the bedside table can be pulled out as needed. Plenty of outlets for electronics. Coffee maker. Lots of lights.
My husband and I and my daughter are comfortable in the queen bed plus sofa bed room.
