The free wifi was fast and easy to get on, the room was clean, staff was very helpful, the bed was super comfortable and the hotel is in close proximity to some of the best restaurants in NYC, and a short walk to great nightlife.

Very clean and wonderful that there is no disgusting carpet in the rooms -- shiny wooden floors instead. Housekeeping staff does a great job and my room was always cleaned by early afternoon. Breakfast area is crowded, but staff does the best they can to keep things running smoothly. Was easy to connect to WiFi, but signal constantly cut out...

Typically we stay on the upper west, but our last visit to NYC was a little last minute so we grabbed a Secret Hotel off Priceline.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
