The room had two queen beds, and not much space to move around; if four people stayed here, it would be a squeeze with just one chair and a tiny square table that serves as a sort-of desk. There's no other furniture.
There was a mid-size fridge with nothing in it; a surprising missed-revenue opportunity. They could stock it with $5 bottles of water.
The air conditioner was fully adjustable, and worked well, and wasn't too loud.
The WiFi was good and fast, and I used it a lot for work during prime evening hours around 9 PM.
The bed was comfortable.
I was on the 2nd floor at the 44th Street front, and I could hear every word spoken by people walking by, even with the air conditioner on. I used to live in Manhattan so this just seemed like a kind of urban babbling brook; folks from Nebraska probably would feel differently!
As a solo business traveller, I stood apart at the breakfast buffet among all the students and bargain-seekers.
Even so, the buffet was good and included a fresh waffle-maker which is pretty common at Comfort Inns across the U.S. but unusual in NYC.
The staff was friendly, and efficient.
My only complaint was that the shower had really poor pressure, which is surprising on the 2nd floor of a NYC hotel -- most hotels have a big water tank on the roof that ensures good pressure. However, I noticed one other recent TripAdvisor reviewer saying that his shower didn't work at all, and so he was forced to take a bath. So they clearly have a problem they need to fix.
The neighborhood includes the Port Authority Bus Terminal, and the 8th Ave/42nd Street subway. But this is an area that is constantly improving -- just around the corner you've got one of the BEST seafood restaurants in NYC -- Esca. Of course if your starting point is the 1970's timeframe, Hell's Kitchen had no place to go but up. But really, it's an okay area to walk around at night, now.
I would stay here again.
