Very nice hotel that is both affordable and conveniently located. It's 4 blocks south of Grand Central Terminal, so it's just far enough into Murray Hill to be away from the bustle but still an easy walk from & to GCT if you're rolling or carrying a suitcase.
Decent-sized room. Soft mattress. A+ for the bathroom, shower, etc.
Only blip: we booked through TripAdvisor for a room with free WiFi and the hotel restaurant's buffet breakfast included. Got back to the room in the evening to find I was not accessing WiFi. Called the front desk and that person told us that we were mistaken; that WiFi was not part of our deal. (He did offer to comp us the WiFi but I still couldn't get on.) Next morning, I went down to the front desk with my confirmation email, and the morning desk clerk confirmed their error and made sure we got breakfast and WiFi. Lesson: if you think your reservation includes breakfast and WiFi, confirm that at check-in.
Will definitely consider a return visit.More
