We had a corner skyline suite on the thirtieth floor with a lovely view of the Chrysler Building and Midtown East.
It was great value, at a little over 200 dollars a night on a weekly rate.
The room was extremely functional, with a solid work area and comfortable bedding.
There were a few concerns.
1. The internet is twelve dollars a day and unreliable. There were times where after paying, it simply didn't work. The reception acknowledged that they were having problems with the internet, and kindly waived the fee, but I think it should be both free and reliable!
2. Location. After my first visit to New York, I'm more of an uptown guy. With that said, if you are tight on time in New York, this is very central. There are good food options (particularly Korean Town) nearby, but its just not an atmospheric area.
3. Noise! The room was noisy. The heating caused a rickety noise coming out of the vents (I think associated with expansion of the metal), and the sound proofing is pretty average.
Overall, this is comfortable and affordable with a few issues.
