I had to be in NYC for two days of job interviews in the Bronx. I wanted someplace that was affordable, private and comfortable. 102 Brownstone is a "boutique" hotel on 118th street near Marcus Garvey park. For the unbelievable price of $119 (plus tax) I got a private room with a high ceilings, queen-sized bed, private bath with good-sized shower and plenty of towels, a lovely little antique desk to work at, cable TV, microwave, fridge, free WiFi and a cozy atmosphere.
This is NOT a typical hotel. The rooms are all furnished in an eclectic style. There is no main office. They do not take credit cards. It felt more like I had my own little private studio apartment. Even though I was on the first floor, I was not bother by street noise. The room was spotless, Lizette was welcoming and helpful and I would definitely stay here again.
