Stayed here on a week long stay in New York with a friend. I dare you to try to find a more reasonable room with two beds and an en suite bathroom. Yes, they were bunk beds but they were reasonably comfortable, and as quiet as you can get in New York. We did not find the frosted glass wall of the bathroom a problem.
For what you pay for, it's clean and comfortable (if not spacious) in a good neighborhood. I'd feel comfortable staying there by myself. Very convenient to Grand Central Station.
I have only two complaints from the stay. First, bring your own washcloth. For whatever reason, they do not provide them. Not a huge deal, and if you forget you can always get one at the Duane Reed drugstore down the street.
The biggest annoyance is the current renovation(?) going on in front of the restaurant, which means that restaurant patrons must use the hotel lobby for access. The restaurant and rooftop bar are apparently very popular with the 21-30 crowd, which means that in the evenings (and especially on weekends), you often have to wade your way through a crowd to get to the elevator. If this isn't your scene, you might find it annoying at best.
If you do manage to find a quiet time to visit it - or not, depending on your preference - the rooftop bar is a very scenic place to hang out.
