I stayed in Yotel in New York recently for 12 days.
From even before I checked in the staff have been fantastic.
I booked a few months out on a 15% off deal. The week leading up to by trip I checked on the Yotel site again for pricing and found it to be slightly cheaper than my original booking, after a quick email to the reservations staff they amended by booking happily.
On checking at 9am on a Saturday I found the Lobby Staff to be friendly, welcoming and efficient. I was checked in within 3 minutes of my arrival and luckily my room was available! I was able to have a shower and change after 24 hours of flying! So I was able to start exploring in a fresh state.
Throughout my stay I made use of the onsite restaurant Dohyo and bar The Terrace. Both had fantastic service, Dohyo had some amazing food at very reasonable prices (I recommend you try the taco's on Taco Tuesday) and brilliant bar staff (happy hour every Mon-Fri 4-7 :) ) I also partook in the Saturday and Sunday Brunch which was a great way to meet fellow travellers and even locals :)
The room, while small, was really well laid out and had everything I wanted. I'm not a big user of in room bars/snacks, so the lack of these was perfect in my books, each floor has a galley with tea/coffee and soda's available as well as a fridge for your own food.
The beds themselves are futon style mattresses which may be a bit hard for some people, but I found very comfortable. The room I stayed in (25th Floor) was very quiet and when the window was closed I struggled to hear any street noise.
I would 100% recommend Yotel NYC to anyone traveling to the Big Apple
