I was planning a family trip to New York and happened upon this hotel while I was scouring hotel ratings on TripAdvisor. I was reading the reviews for this hotel that were mostly glowing reviews. Then, I looked at the room prices that were very reasonable (for New York) and I got skeptical about the authenticity of the reviews. In New York, how could glowing reviews and great room prices go together? I looked at other websites and they agreed with TripAdvisor. I am happy to say the glowing reviews are right on for this hotel. I was very happy once I got to the hotel and saw sights that matched the pictures on TripAdvisor. This hotel has to have been recently updated. The bathrooms were very clean with shiny new marble tile floors and nice bathroom fixtures. No dirt build up even in the corners of the floor of the bathroom. The room carpet was clean. The beds were in good shape and used duvets for cleanliness. We had a two queen-bed room that contained two real queen beds with enough room for a rollaway bed. The room also contained a desk, a small table, a cabinet with refrigerator, and three chairs and we could still walk around. Even the offsite garage where you must park your car for the duration of your stay (because they cram a lot of cars in there) for $20 per night was a good deal. We were okay with that because subways and walking is the way to see Manhattan. The free breakfast buffet and free WiFi were very welcome to my connected kids. Breakfast included the usual wafflemaker, toaster, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, bagels, donuts, pastries, cereals, yogurts, and many other usual breakfast buffet items. The buffet was maintained pretty good most times. The hotel desk clerks were very helpful and knowledgeable and many hotel guests took advantage of this feature. We had a very fine stay at this hotel. The only down side to this hotel is that it is in the middle of some Seaport historical development project that includes construction around the hotel neighborhood. Also, the after-effects of hurricane Sandy meant many storefronts were still closed around the hotel. When we stayed the restaurant ACQUA (Italian) was open right next door, and Mark Joseph Steakhouse was open next to that, and Meade's pub across the street was open too. So, I had no need for anything else. Other places are open down there too, or are in the process of reopening soon.
