Subway noise?

We liked the location. It was easy to find for taxi's and centrally located to all we wanted to see. No single taxi ride was too expensive. The food situation was EXPENSIVE. Average $28 for two to have breakfast and NOT included in the price of the hotel. The food and service in the restaurant was average. The bed in the room had a hump in the middle, so we were constantly waking up to try to not fall out of bed. The staff of the hotel were very friendly and accommodating.

Get a NYC City Pass. Worth the money and the time savings. Cut down on standing in lines a lot.

A Train Runs Through It . . .

Great location, clean comfortable room, but the rooms that you book through [...] that are on the lower floors (and more affordable) are directly over the subway. So it sounds like a train is coming through your room. About every 20 minutes or so. Desk staff was wonderful - good humored, apologetic. They comped us for breakfasts at the restaurant next door, offered to move us up a floor though we would still hear the train. Just be sure to book a higher floor or call the hotel and ask them in advance for a room without the subway running under it.Otherwise the hotel was great, very clean, decent room, parking next door, plenty of dining choices nearby, great location for Times Square and transportation.

Great price and location combination

While still in Times Square this is a great spot close to train, restaurants and good taxi service in the area. Staff were very accomodating and room are a good size according to NYC standards. I will stay there again.

Great location, but a bit expensive

On the plus side, hotel was nice and clean and in a really good location. The staff were fine. The ergonomic chair was sold as a big plus, but is probably more suited to business clients. On the minus side, the lighting in the room was very poor and the coffee maker was difficult to fill, because of its position - these are two problems that could easily be fixed with a little thought. I discovered too late that the New York Today newspaper is included in the hotel price as a default, and guests have to opt out or they are charged. This is petty and wrong.

Check out the New York Pass if you're thinking of seeing the big tourist sites - Met, MoMA, Empire State, Liberty, etc. as you may save money if you're doing all 6 of them!

"Too Noisy"

Very friendly staff, clean room, great locations. They gave us a room on 2nd floor on a Sunday night stay. It was horribly noisy. Not being familiar with New York, it took us a while to realize that the noise was due to the Subway passing under ground. As my 5 year old commented, the subway noise was not very disturbing outside of the hotel, but inside it was a different story. Got some sleep after mid-night on Sunday night and woke up very early Monday morning due to subway noise. According to the Staff, the noise is not as bad on higher floors. If so, then they should not have any rooms on 2nd floor and dedicate the entire floor to sport center or for other purpose. The room had a view over looking the 8th Ave, but not a whole lot to see on 8th Ave. Bad experience. Family was looking forward for a nice stay, but totally dis-appointed
