I stayed here May 15-17 on business. The hotel is older and that gives it a bit of character (for example - only one of the elevators goes to the 9th floor (where my room was) - the other elevator goes to the 8th and you have to take stairs up from there). There is bullet proof glass at the reception desk - I didn't mind it. The desk does after all look out directly on the street. Seemed that most guests were European. The lobby area is not all that - but then, I don't pick my hotels for the lobby. The rooms are small (expected) but comfortable. The decor is fine, and everything in my room was clean and worked properly. You aren't getting all kinds of freebies with this hotel - but internet was free and worked very well. The hotel is in a good central location - easy to get to Penn Station, and other parts of NY. It was my first real trip to NY so in addition to business I wanted to spend a bit of time catching some sites and I was able to easily see a lot. Times Square is only about 10 blocks away, Central Park is about 15 blocks, and United Nations not far either. Bryant Park and the NYC Library are about 4 blocks away and the Empire State Building is 2 blocks away. An easy cab ride to Financial District and you can see all the parts down there (9/11 memorial, wall st., etc. - that cab ride is about $10 with tip).
