This was my 3rd time to NYC from Australia, and this time we had both times before stayed at the NYMA Manhattan on W32nd St. This is owned by the same group i believe, but it is located between 30th-31st on Lexington. We wanted to try somewhere a bit different so it didnt feel the same.
The hotel itself was great. The room was a great size, bathrooms great, rooms spotless, reception helpful. Absolutely cant fault the hotel. My only issue was the wifi was very intermittent which was annoying. That may have been because our room was hidden away around a corner. And i know complaining about wifi seems petty, but for the traveller staying in the hotel for a week, you want reliable internet to either contact home or research what to do in NY.
But honestly overall the hotel itself was great. Now the location. As i said, we stayed in W32nd st before and honestly, that was a better location than where the Eastside is. The subway station is close, but the train really only goes uptown and downtown and from this location, alot of the time you actually want to be further west towards 5th.6th,7th ave and broadway. So we found the train not very convenient. Instead we found ourselves walking extra blocks to and from our hotel compared to our last trip. The area itself though is nice,just not much happening. As a tourist you want to be over towards broadway more.
But overall, the hotel was great... just the location for us wasnt quite as good as where we'd been before. But hey, we wanted something different and dont regret it. Great hotel!
