Let me start by saying the main reasons why I booked this hotel were price, free wi-fi, and free breakfast. That being said, there were not so great things that probably outweighed the benefits of those three things.
Let's start with pros:
- Very convenient to 1, A, and C stations. Catching a cab on 6th Ave is easy, too. You can pretty much get around to anywhere easily.
- Wi-fi is free and relatively fast.
- Hotel staff were polite and accommodating.
- Water pressure in the shower was great.
- Nicely renovated common areas.
But here are the cons:
- The heater was extremely loud. It was really cold while we were there, so we had to have the heater on at night, however, I got up in the middle of the night and turn off the heater to get some quiet sleep, which resulted in a cold room in short order.
- About half of the time we were there, one of the two elevators was not working. This isn't a huge problem if you're on the 4th floor, but it is if you're on say the 15th floor.
- The bed is really firm. So firm that laying on my side for any length of time kind of hurt.
- The extra blanket is basically the thickness of a sheet.
- The walls are not very soundproof. I could hear our neighbor's TV, telephone, and alarm clock.
Breakfast was okay, but did have a variety of options (usually an omelette, some kind of meat, cereals, baked goods, waffles, etc.), and we only took advantage of it 2 of the 4 days we were there.
In retrospect, if the room had been quieter, this would be an immensely better review. Unfortunately, our room wasn't the respite from the City that I was hoping it would be.
