This was our first trip to NYC so we were a little apprehensive. We chose the Staybridge Suites Hotel as a result of reviews in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It is in a great location within walking distance of Times Square and many of the sights we wanted to see. For sights too far to walk the "Hop-ON-Hop-Off" bus stops and public transport are very close. We felt very safe walking in this area, even when returning to the hotel close to midnight. When we checked in at night after a long flight the receptionist, Senada, was so cheerful, positive, and helpful that we felt "at home" immediately. The concierge recommended several restaurants within walking distance and the one we selected from her list was excellent. The hotel was VERY CLEAN - an important point for us. The breakfast buffet, which is included in the room rate, was good and the staff who looked after it kept the tables clean and the buffet dishes replenished. All of the hotel staff we met in the halls, elevators, etc. were very cheerful and seemed to enjoy their work and take pride in doing a good job. A unique feature for us was the FREE Happy Hour on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30 to 7:00. It included beer, wine, cheese, crackers, chips and dip, and two or three hot items. We really enjoyed the opportunity to relax after a day of sightseeing and found that it was a great way to meet other tourists and share tips. The one negative for us - the hotel is very "Pet Friendly" - a problem for people like me who are allergic to animal hair.
