A good value hotel with good amenities - the wifi worked well and the room was sufficient for the two of us. As everyone keeps saying, NYC hotel rooms have a reputation for being small but we stayed for four nights and had no trouble with the size of the room.
The free breakfast was nice - waffles, muffins, cereal, juice, bagels etc. The setup is quite small, so if you happen to turn up during a rush time you probably won't get a table and may have to wait awhile.
The hotel is a walkable distance to many tourist attractions - Times Square is 15mins walk, Rockefeller 20 and Penn Station around 30mins. Cab rides are decent too, got a cab to Rockefeller for $7 and we cabbed from the Statue of Liberty ferry in lower Manhattan for about $20. The subway is about a 10 min walk away also. When looking at hotels while booking this trip, the free wifi, breakfast and walkable distance were the reasons why we chose this one.
That said, the hotel isn't really close to anything either. When looking for a quick bite to eat at the end of a long day of sightseeing, there aren't many restaurants or even convenience stores which are too close by - a few low budget diners and a few places 5-10min walk away which didn't look like anything special. That was the biggest downfall of the hotel.
Overall a pleasant stay and would recommend.
