The apartment was nice - exactly as we expected. Only half a block from Central Park and close to the subway, coffee shops and restaurants. The USASuites was responsive to my questions - although it was a bit weird to pay half with a credit card and the other half could be paid only with cash or a cashier check upon check-in. Also, you have to pick up the keys at a Western Union near Grand Central Station. They charged the NY city taxes - so I think that makes them more legit in renting for less than 30 days in New York City without being a hotel.
