This is a great little hotel. We had a Deluxe level room, fifth floor with an awesome little balcony. Perfect for a family travelling with a teenager as it had a nice sleeper bed with a trundle, a table and chairs, a fridge stocked with drinks and a microwave. Two closets and more than enough storage space. Big, updated bathroom. Great space for the city and the cost. I cannot say how much we enjoyed having a tiny bit of outdoor space - with views of the Williamsburg Bridge and a tiny ESB view as well. As mentioned in an earlier review- a great place to contemplate being in the big city.
We did not have any issues with noise but we are not super sensitive. There is a nightclub close by but it wasn't bothersome to us at with earbuds and sleeping music (something we do when all together in any hotel room).
Location was great, simple to get to the subway and in a beautiful neighborhood full of life. Easy stroll to Chinatown and we walked over to the Village one night - not too taxing of a walk at all. The LES is full of great places to eat- acclaimed spots so read up and ENJOY! Also our teenager was surprisingly interested in the history of the neighborhood and the tenement living. Just one more reason to go back.
Check in and out was easy and I really enjoyed the young lady who was the daytime manager on 11/3- I should have gotten her name- she gave us the history of this gorgeous building and its refurbishment and she is a treasure on par with the hotel itself.
Only issues we had were the small number of large towels available (which we worked out quickly) and a squeaky bed. Small issues and not enough to make us consider another hotel the next time we are in New York -and we will hope for the Benny Goodman room again or consider upgrading to a suite.
A charming, memorable alternative to a standard issue hotel room in New York.
