Great Location right in the middle of Times Square with short access to many Subway trains. E train ( which connects to AIRTRAIN if flying in and out of JFK airport) is 2 blocks away.
I booked a suite for 4 nights but with the mixed reviews, did not really have a very high expectation. so i requested for a RENOVATED room both in RES and upon check in. DID NOT GET IT. instead i got a very depressing room with very old furnitures, the bed was like a plywood and the heater had no controls so it came on when the room got VERY COLD. Just like any old buildings is NY, i could see wires in nooks and crannies, thick paint, peeling wallpaper but it is an old hotel. But the hotel itself really is just so old and a drab from its old carpet, furnishings etc etc from the Lobby, hallways . The bathroom was clean and was stocked and cleaned everyday. The housekkeping was there when i asked for additional items. EVERY Morning there was construction, YES, LIKE JACKHAMMERS ! going on on the top floor.
The only good thing about this hotel is there is security at the elevator and they require you to show your key.
If you dont mind an old hotel, for its great location and price, this will do. However, this was like staying in those roadside hotels........ Because there is no guarantee what kind of room one can get, I MAY NOT stay there again until all rooms are renovated.
I am from NY and have stayed in different hotels within the boroughs but i was really dissappointed with this especially after i specifically asked and again after i upgraded to a suite and did not get a new room.
