Generally speaking, we didn't utilize the layout of the room as well as we could have, as we didn't have a need. The unit by NYC standards was big, with a kitchenette (full fridge, sink, etc.), small dining area (seats 4), small living area with tv and modern (aka: small) sofa, bathroom and then the bedroom. Overall a TON of storage space and places to hang clothes, store business items / accessories / shoes, etc. The "common" spaces are pretty much non-existent with a tiny "lobby" and a small no frills desk area. The staff were helpful enough whenever we needed something (ie: subway map, general area information, etc) but were busy a lot (small desk for size of hotel) and kind of succinct in their communication.
Noise wasn't bad (we were about 23 floors up though), didn't try the on-site restaurant and location was ok. It was convenient to midtown stuff (generally) but really far east so if you're looking to do a lot of walking to western side of midtown or anything far west, it is a decent hike. You're about 6 blocks from major train station (Union) and taxis are really easy to get right outside of hotel. Close enough to bagels, corner stores, restaurants, Times Square, etc.
All in all, not a bad experience but get used to Subway system if you're looking to do a lot out of Midtown.
