I recently stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in September, while enjoying all the sites that NYC has to offer. And my conclusion? Meh. It wasn't great, it wasn't terrible, it just sort of existed.
The location is fine. It's a little out there, but it's only a 15-20 minute subway ride to all the good stuff. The hotel is 3 blocks away from the nearest subway station, but it only took a few minutes to walk. There were lots of little stores just a couple blocks away in case you need anything. The building faces Central Park, which is nice. The street was never too busy or noisy.
My room faced away from Central Park, which kind of sucked, but at least it was quiet. Other reviews have warned about the size of the rooms, and they're right. There's enough room for a bed, an end table, a (tiny) TV and a wardrobe. That's it. I bet your bedroom at home is bigger.
The bathroom looked to be recently upgraded, and was pretty decent. Water pressure was good, the shower was hot and housekeeping provided enough towels. It wasn't very big, but did the job.
The big problem with the hotel was a whole bunch of little things. The cleanliness of the room was just okay. There was only one sheet on the bed. The TV remote didn't work, and there was one outlet that didn't either. The elevator was tiny, and kinda sounded like it was straining the whole time. None of this stuff is really that important, it just all kind of added up.
Anyway, I'd stay at the hotel again, assuming I got the same $99 per night deal. If I had to pay their regular price (in the $169-199 range I think) I'd probably try my luck somewhere else.
