Hi we stayed here for 5 nights in early July, in general it does everything it says on the tin...ideal for those looking for a base to then head out and explore the city. 2 mins walk to the metro (underground) which is great for getting around and plenty of local food & coffee houses at a reasonable rate.
Rooms clean & tidy with good bathrooms, televisions with air con that is a bit noisy but essential this time of the year.
free wi-fi is only available around reception & the dinning room on level 2 which serves breakfast ($17.00 all you can eat) which is ok if you want to load up before heading out for the day.
definitely a no frills hotel but who wants to sit in a hotel when in NYC.
2 mins from the natural history museum & central park.
There is a restaurant which is attached but separate owned & is open from around 6-11pm .
There is also a tourist info desk in reception open from around 9am...
