We had planned the trip to NY a while back and still decided to go ahead despite Sandy. Good news was that almost everything was back to normal at the hotel and around the parts of the city we visited.
Overall had a great stay and would definitely go back.
- amazing room! we had a loft, super funky with a view of manhattan skyline
- 10 min walk to subway, 1 stop from grand central
- shuttle service in a retro cab to other, slightly further subway lines (L train)
- wifi worked great everywhere!
- great service, very friendly. We had an issue in the bathroom and it was fixed right away
- parking free & plentiful right outside
For those complaining about the noise. I would say its a huge city, what do you expect?! Yes a bit noisy but nothing that prevented me from sleeping
Not so goods
- not a traditional hotel. If you want something with a bar, resto etc - wont find it here
- while I quite enjoyed the location and the hotel recommended an awesome craft beer bar 5 min away there isn't a huge abundance of places super closeby.
Lastly be careful with cabs - while it's in Brooklyn it's much closer to Long Island City so need to be specific about taking the Queensboro bridge from Manhattan otherwise you get taken for a ride - literally!
