I spent 6 nights at the Metro with my friend (who also wrote a review, dated 19th June) during mid-June 2005 and I must say that this hotel was just great! It's everything that you need in a New York hotel....excellent location (you just can't fault it), great service and polite helpful staff, tasty buffet breakfast and comfortable rooms.
It's just a couple of seconds from the subway (a main one - 34th Street - with loads of lines going through it) and is right near Macy's, Empire State Building and not far at all from Times Square (10 mins walk max or one subway stop). Our room was nice and large and beds were very comfortable. Also had a big TV with about 30 channels, a fridge, a table, couple of chairs, chest of drawers, phone, lamps and a large complete bathroom with fresh towels everyday. The breakfast is just right with muffins, bagels, fruit, bread (and toaster), yoghurts and fruit juices, tea, coffee, etc. It's not like a full English you could get elsewhere but it was just perfect for the start of your day (we loved it!).
For our first time going to New York and two girls together, we wanted to choose a great hotel with an excellent location and we were not at all disappointed. We didn't have a view (we stayed on the 3rd floor) but we didn't find it a problem as you're out most of the time and everything else makes up for it! I think that overall this hotel is brilliant and is a perfect place to stay while in New York!
