I highly, highly recommend this hotel. We picked it based on location, having stayed in Soho in an apartment the previous year and loved the downtown location. A huuuuge tip for New York is to stay in downtown manhattan - most people go for midtown to be close to Times Square, or Upper East Side because of its reputation for glamour - believe me, that is not where you want to be. The NY subway system is so great that during the day, you can get anywhere fast, including Times Square, and at night we (two twenty something women) found the subway perfectly safe for 8pm-1am travel to Times Square the one night we went. Midtown and The Upper East Side are actually quite dead at night.
Most nights we frequented Soho, Greenwich Village, Meatpacking District,TriBeCa, and East Village. These areas are where most of the awesome restaurants, bars, and nightlife is. So wouldnt you want to be staying closer to where you will be spending your nights? That was our thinking, and it paid off!
Another location plus is that this hotel is between two different subway lines - making getting around really easy.
But back to the hotel itself - we paid around $1200 for a week, which is so cheap for New York that it even almost matched some of the hostel accommodation prices we looked at. And the price did not come with nasty catches, like an awful room or rude staff - our room was comfortable, clean, with a lovely bed and excellent recently renovated bathroom. The staff were acommodating, helpful and friendly. We had complimentary breakfast that, while on the minimal side, was still adequate and involved both hot and continental items.
Our only negative comments would be that the air-conditioning unit is pretty noisy, which we didnt really mind as we are heavy sleepers, and that the blinds in our room didnt actually close (by design, not due to being broken). We ended up tying them together in the middle with an elastic band to make the room dark. But these are very small things considering all the benefits of the hampton inn Soho, and we will definitely visit again.
