We really enjoyed our stay, July 21-24, 2013. Marion's room was great for myself, my wife, our 3 teen-aged boys, and golden retriever. Being in the Convent Ave location had a benefit in being very near the 147th St entrance to the 145th St Subway Stn.
The properties are beautiful, and practical with shared kitchen area, and very convenient to good Harlem restaurants that Jeremy recommended (Tonali and Covo); as well as convenient to the subway (15mins to 72nd st and Central Park ).
We felt completely safe at all times in Harlem, returning by Subway at 10pm, and walking back from restaurants between 11pm and midnight.
Jeremy had great and very practical advice, on ways to see NYC sights without spending 3 hours lined-up, and $100, at every turn. As well as for some shopping desires for my kids.More
