After reading some of the reviews here I was reticent to stay at the hotel but had gotten a good deal on the price so I took the chance for an Easter Weekend. We were very pleased with this hotel. Service was pleasant and helpful, location is fantastic. You can walk to any theater and an easy walk to Hell's Kitchen. The subway is just around the corner for other locations and it is such a short distance from Times Sq that any subway line is an option!
Our room was good sized with a king bed (seemed more like a queen) that was very comfortable., the room and the bathroom were always spotless (we stayed 3 nights) they had a coffee maker and a large flat screen TV and a very usable small safe in the closet. There was very little noise from outside or from the hallways. Granted the furnishings are a little dated but for the price and location I would definitely stay here again.
The only drawback was that at certain times the line waiting for the elevator in the lobby was very long but usually disappeared in a short time. It seems there was one elevator out of service and it made it hard sometimes to get an elevator that wasn't packed and stopping on every floor. This was a small inconvenience that has happened to me in many hotels in NYC so I wasn't all that bothered by it.
All in all I found it to be a great deal, very clean and an extremely convenient location.
Would definitely return.
