The area is obviously on the up, although the block immediately around the hotel is initially uninviting. Once inside however, all impressions are great. The staff are welcoming and helpful, and the decor is quirky and eclectic. We had a loft suite, which seemed very spacious after Manhattan hotels. It was great to have good kitchen facilities. The suite was light and bright, with lots of windows, and a tiny courtyard which we would probably have used in warmer weather. The furniture was stylish and comfortable, and it was quiet. The bathroom was large, but could have done with more shelving or storage. The vintage taxis which drop you off at local restaurants and subway stations were great fun, and the drivers were very helpful and pleasant. It is an easy enough walk to two subway stations and the hotel provides good restaurant suggestions in walking distance. The only issue we had was that the hot water system occasionally struggled to keep up at peak times, and the AC unit was quite noisy (only minor inconveniences). We really enjoyed the experience of staying outside Manhattan, but still with ready access to all NYC has to offer, as well as getting to know an area new to us.
