Great location in Soho sets Courtyard apart from the tourist hotels that cluster around Times Square. The area between Varick and Broadway exudes urban charm, laid back although steadily commercializing, with some interesting shops to complement the big brands, and varied dining options, some of them excellent. Transportation to the rest of NYC is easy with the subway station just around the corner, less than 100m from the hotel; taxis are abundant and easily flagged on Varick.
The hotel itself is a standard Courtyard, decorated in a simple but modern style. It looks like it was recently renovated. The place is very clean and appears well maintained. The staff at the reception desk is friendly and efficient. We experienced very fast check-in and check-out; our other requests were promptly attended to. The lobby lounge hosts a coffee and pastry counter that serves Starbucks coffee; it is convenient for a quick breakfast.
The size of our twin room was decent but not huge. Equipment is of standard 4-star class, with good quality fittings including very comfortable beds and beddings. Effective sound isolation ensured that in 4 days, we never heard our neighbors. We found the WiFi access fast and easy. A/C in the corridor was set to freezing cold, so we turned it off in the room and it was OK. As already flagged by another reviewer, the only downside we found was the view - or rather lack thereof - as our room at he back was facing another wall, which feels a bit claustrophobic.
We paid about US$300 per night through internet reservation, which is not cheap even by NYC standards, but felt it was justified by the quality of the overall offering. I have no problem recommending this hotel and would certainly consider staying there again.
