I stayed here for 5 nights in February 2011. The location was awesome mainly due to the price and location.
1. I got a Friend and Family discount (but the original price was already very appropriate for the location and I would've stayed here either way)
2. Location - Very centrally located in terms of subway stations, right in between Times Square and Grand Central Terminal, very convenient. Close to 5th Ave for buses as well (and a Chipotle couple doors down!)
3. Free Breakfast! I am always impressed with free continental breakfasts that has more than donuts, toast, OJ, and coffee. It was a pretty good variety, there were days with biscuit and gravy, omelettes, sausages. I mean it wasn't an excellent breakfast, but I appreciated starting my day with some food in my tummy!
Overall, I had a great experience, the staff was friendly (not too friendly were it just felt pretentious, but friendly enough that I didn't feel neglected!). They addressed any needs and concerns that we had, informative staff. In terms of the room, yes they are small, but it's NYC! What did you expect?
Only complaint I have is that housekeeping was a bit noisy in the morning, but I think it's because my room was located next to a closet or something. And that's why I sleep with ear plugs, then it's no problem at all!
