Good central location. Clean room. Room service daily. Room perfectly big enough for three friends sharing. Free wi-fi in the lobby!
Close distance to subways, deli's, diners, Times Square, the Rockefeller Center, Broadway and Central Park.
Swimming pool and restaurant were closed for refurbishment.
when we were there.
Still being used to house hurricane sandy victims, so can be extremely noisy!
We signed up to the Big Apple Greeter service before we left, we certainly recommend it as they can show you places you might not explore independently. Ours took us to Harlem.
We bought a week pass for the subway, which was a good investment! We walked miles each day, and used the subway to assist our weary feet!!!!
We visited most of the usual tourist attractions: Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, 9/11Memorial, Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Macy's, Madison Square Gardens, China Town, Staten Island, saw Lady Liberty (Liberty Island is still closed following hurricane Sandy!), Broadway, Brooklyn - we walked the Brooklyn Bridge!! A must do! We headed to Katz Deli, be aware it can be VERY busy!!!!
We certainly made good use of our stay in New York and there are still things or us to go back and do/explore!!!
Returning to our hotel was a pleasure, the beds were very comfortable, but the heating was so hot that although it was February, we slept with our window open!!!
Not all rooms will have experienced the noise from our neighbours, but if you need to make the front desk aware of noise issues anytime after 11pm they are very good at responding!! (for us this was generally anytime between 10.30pm - 5.00 am, tv, shouting, arguing etc, not kidding!!)
That said, we would return to this hotel as our overall experience was good.
