After a thorough search, also using Tripadvisor we found this Hotel.
When we first arrived we were not pleased with the room as we had asked for a room with a view, but we looked building walls a couple of yards from the window of this sixth floor room.
When complaining at the front desk it was said that the this type of room (we were staying with four) was fully booked on higher floors. But after some discussing and arguin, what appears to have been a higher manager stepped in and checked the bookings. He found the a room on a higher floor that would become available the next day. We agreed to spend one night on the sixth floor and move the next day to the ninth floor.
The view was SO much better as we could see over the roof tops and some of the Skyline.
Don't be fooled as the bookings sites show an image of the view from the rooftop, but when we wanted to go there it was said that this is not allowed and closed for public.
The room itself is normal sized by New York Standards, very clean and the Hotel is well taken care off. Breakfast was included and well taken care of. Good for a day start, but the number of seats are limited as it is a small Hotel,
The Location is excellent a park across the street and right at the edge of Chinatown, always busy but not crowded. The Subway from JFK (Jamaica station) is about 8-10 minutes walking and the nearest Subway just a minute or two walking distance and this will bring you everywhere. Around the corner is the Manhatten Bridge a pretty sight.
