Rooms are tiny. There's a cheap looking desk and a mini-fridge at the bottom of your bed; your bed is not against the wall and there is no headboard. There is no hairdryer, iron, or ironing board in your room.
The room was basically clean, but the lobby was another story. The ceilings were dirty with mildew, paint was chipped, fixtures were rusty. The whole place exuded a strange smell. You are at pain to fit more than two people in the extremely sketchy elevators.
At the end of the day, if you are a young traveler looking to save money, and a private bathroom is a must for you (as it is for me), then you might consider this place. I would be mortified to recommend this to anyone, however, and certainly would NEVER let my parents or anyone I cared about stay here. I saw an old couple and a mother with a teenage daughter and I just felt sorry for them. I don't know how this place has a 3-star average; it is a total dive, and a rip-off at $150/night including taxes, even in NYC.
Note: I did find street parking after driving around for ten minutes.
