We came to check-in at the hotel, and were very pleased with the location. Just a few blocks from Grand Central Station, and a nice short walk to Times Square/5th Avenue. Staff was VERY knowledgeable and friendly. We arrived early, and the room was not ready, but staff graciously checked our bags. They had fresh baked cookies in the lobby each evening, which was a welcome touch. Rooms were clean, and while quite small (not unexpected), they were laid out well. I appreciated the stand alone shower, over a tub/shower combination. My only complaint is that for a new hotel, the walls are quite thin...we were placed next to a family with two small children and were unable to get an afternoon nap from the doors slamming, and them being rowdy. In fairness, we didn't approach the staff, since it was 3pm in the afternoon, but if you're a light sleeper, might be worth asking the staff if they have a quieter floor, or a corner room. All in all, a nice, clean, new hotel which is a good value, and considerably cheaper than many "full-service" hotels if you're looking for an inexpensive, but clean hotel in Manhattan.
