This hotel is located in the centre of Manhattan a few minutes walk from Grand Central Station, Times Square, and the Rockerfeller Centre. The Junior Suite we occupied was nicely appointed and very clean and the WiFi worked well.

The hotel is on a busy street so if your sleep is easily disturbed it may not be for you, but this didn't bother us at all.

We didn't eat or drink in the hotel so can't comment.

Absolutely no cause for any complaint.

Room Tip: Only stayed in one room so don't know what any of the others were like.

I stayed here for a conference and it quickly became my NYC home. The staff is great, they are friendly & very helpful with everything from locating a package to helping find a restaurant. My room was a very nice size, was clean, comfortable, and felt like a guest room in a home more than a hotel. The location is very convenient. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are very roomy.

I've stayed here 3 times in the past 6 months and will return. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The rooms are good-sized and comfortable. Furniture is what you would expect if you were staying at a friend's beach or ski house, comfortable/shabby rather than matchy-matchy plastic. There are all the comforts of home, including a selection of books in each room and DVDs available from the desk, as well as a small fridge rather than a mini-bar. Nice towels, real hangers in real closets with doors. And the price is unbeatable, especially for the location a block from the Waldorf.

Room Tip: Rooms 01-02 face the courtyard and are quieter.

I stayed here one night, booked last minute through HotelTonight. I found it nice and convenient for the price I paid. The reception area is small and cozy and the staff were very nice and efficient. The room was pretty nice, it was clean and had a good view of Lexington Ave. The bathroom was fully stocked basket of complementary toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.) The room could use a few updates but it was clean and the bed was very comfortable so I was happy with my choice. I would stay again but I would ask for a higher floor.

Room Tip: I was on the third floor and my room had a window AC unit. I'm not sure if that was typical for...
