Great place to stay for the money.

everything was great except the bathtub would not drain properly while in the shower. Which left you standing in a couple of inches of water. But the staff was friendly and helpful.

Great location, great price

I'm VERY PICKY about my hotels. I want a nice, modern, comfortable and clean room and this hotel exceeded my expectations! We had a corner room and for a NYC hotel room this was gigantic. The room had a king bed, sofa, desk, dresser and mini bar/microwave station! The bathroom was large too. The location was great, it was just one city Avenue (a city Avenue is approximately equal to 3 city blocks (i.e. 30th street - 33rd street)) from the heart of Times Square. Parking was right around the corner. The only bad thing about the room was that it was on the 2nd floor and when the trains (subway) ran past the hotel you could feel the vibrations. The street noise didn't bother us one bit (since we're native New Yorkers) and we got used to the subway running every so often. If you're a light sleeper a lower floor may not be for you. I would definitely stay here again, it was worth every penny!

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

There are bars within walking distance. There also are clubs within driing distance. FYI if it's a nice club your group must have a decent women to make ratio or be all women no all men groups in most nice clubs.

Comfortable, good location, good value

Two things surprised me about a hotel so close to Times Square: The room was good-sized and it was nice and quiet. I slept well and did not hear the usual street noise during the night. We got the bed and breakfast deal, and the buffet at the restaurant adjoining the hotel was fantastic. I would definitely stay at this hotel on a future visit to NYC.

Visit the TKTS booth just a couple of blocks from the hotel (near Times Square) for half-price, same-day tickets to a variety of Broadway shows!
