We stayed 2 nights at this hotel recently and we loved it. As several people on here have posted already, it is steps away from the subway, Madison Square Garden, Penn Station and minutes from Times Square (15 walking minutes). Our room was small, but it's what we expected for NYC. We also flew out of Newark airport so we took the NJ Transit train from Penn Station to the airport. ($12.50 compared to $80 for taxi) We only had to haul our luggage two blocks to the station which was challenging but doable.
The hotel is also located on a quiet street facing the Post Office and the breakfast was more than we expected with eggs, sausage, cereal, bagels and several pastries. But the coolest part of this hotel is the rooftop bar and sitting area on the 23rd floor. What a view! It is worth it after a long day of sightseeing to go up there and just take in the view. I used the fitness center which was new and had quality cardio equipment with TV's on each piece of equipment. The staff was very helpful with our needs getting to/from area attractions and sites. They held our luggage until the room was ready when we arrived and allowed us a late check out. (These types of things are going to vault them into the top 20 of NYC hotels soon)
I am a hotel snob and this hotel met my needs. We paid over $300 per room but again, it is NYC and I'm not sure you can find everything this hotel offers for less than that. I would definitely recommend it.
