I visit NYC quite a lot and originally was going to book one of my usual places but I came across this gem and since it had been open for less than a week at the time, the rate was fantastic.
Fab rate & brand new rooms aside, the staff is what made this a really great stay for us.
We originally booked a king room but upon arrival, I didn't want a room off the elevator and that is where it was located, so the manager, Matt, took us around and showed us 2 other options, a queen room with a patio and a suite on a higher floor that had a balcony and two separate rooms.
Because I am a former resident of NYC, I was thrilled at the prospect of having a room with outdoor space, so we did the unheard of, downgraded to the room with the patio.
Yes, it had a smaller bed, fridge etc but private outdoor space in NYC is gold!
Matt found us chairs to set up out there and it is where we spent some of the evenings.
Only issue: some of the hotel guests on the upper floors thought it was ok to smoke on their balconies (ugh) and toss their cigarettes over them (rude & ridiculous smokers), so we found buds on the ground but the hotel quickly addressed that by putting letters under the doors of the rooms on that side.
With your room, you get free breakfast next door at Captains Cafe and he is pretty awesome and invited us to come over for beer later in the day and since we don't drink it, he said well come for coffee or juice. So the New York I love, folks just connecting simply because.
The kitchenette was fully stocked with all the things you would need to cook if that's your thing.
While we don't do a lot of touristy things while in NYC, those who are into that will love this location, which is a hop and a skip from 34th street and all it offers and trains to any other destination.
All in all, this was truly a fab stay. I have never laughed and had just a really good time with a hotel staff as we did here.
32 32 Hotel is definitely my NYC home base from now on!
