As most travelers know, HI can vary widely since they are privately owned franchises.... My experience has been mostly positive considering the prices are almost always reasonable... in this case, the price was great... $100 cheaper a night than the Hilton I had stayed at... stuck in NYC b/c flight cancelled, I swapped hotels to save a few dollars. Didn't regret it.
Hotel itself is on a small footprint, so don't expect wide open spaces.... Staff friendly and helpful, great recommendations and directions. Nice lounge area doubles as breakfast area 6AM-10AM. Computer area in basement clean and easily allows you to print boarding passes.
My room was small (1 Queen bed), but I was solo no problems. Room was extra clean, bed comfy and no problems. Each floor only has about 6-8 rooms (I said it was a small footprint)... so rooms higher than my 9th fl might have a view... not that It really matters.
Did I mention you get a continental breakfast included? Sure, there are delis everywhere in Manhattan that might have better food, but they want money! Suck it up, have a bagel, and splurge on dinner!!!
Wish I would have stayed here instead of the Hilton at $240 a night...
Decent access to subways (B/D/F/M trains) within 3 blocks. Good bus access.... you really don't want to drive in Manhattan, do you?
