We stayed for seven nights in a one room apartment. It was quiet, the staff courteous and location excellent. The subway was 1 minute from the hotel. If you want to save money to spend on sightseeing, you can prepare the daily meals here. The best deli and fresh food market in NYC is directly opposite. Although the kitchenette facilities were fairly basic, we were able to buy semi-prepared food at the deli to reheat and add a sparkling fresh salad and a dessert treat for a great evening meal. Cereal and fresh fruit for breakfast, we made a bread roll with salad to take out with us sightseeing had us spending just US$25 a day for two. How good is that! Best tip: A slice of NY cheesecake for $1.99 at Fairways market opposite.
There is a huge laundry on the 7th floor, wash and dry for $3.50.
The saving on meal costs certainly helped offset the accommodation bill.
The only negative comment (which we didn't bring up with the front desk) a small table and two chairs to dine at (this is in the one room apartment) would make it easier than us trying to eat sitting at the desk on one chair and a stool.
Oh, the kingsize bed was a dream to sleep in.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our Aussie friends.
