Great location

If you want times square and the theater district this is a great hotel. Smaller place with modern rooms. I thought the bed was very good. The only drawback I had was in the morning the shower water is not real hot. Other times of the day it is just fine. I will go back.

Prime Location

The hotel is within walking distance of Broadway St. in the heart of Times Square. The hotel staff were very pleasant. I got to the hotel early and was allowed to check in early. The room and bathroom was well stocked and clean. However, the rooms are very small. The hotel also offers fruit to its guest in the lobby. Overall, the hotel was nice and I would stay here again due to its location.

Last Minute NYC getaway

This hotel is located centrally in Times Square. It's close to everything that you could want to do. The staff were impeccable and so helpful. The rooms are small, but very clean and had everything I needed. Everyone that worked here was so friendly and helped with suggestions and things to do in NYC. I highly reccomend this hotel, and would come back again!!!!

Could've Been Better

The location was awesome. The hotel was minutes away from Broadway, Bryant Park, NY Public Library, and 10-15 mins from the Empire State Bldg. That being said, the hotel itself was ok. There was no microwave, you had to contact the front desk every time you wanted ice, and the toilet was not as clean as it could've been. They were doing construction in front of the hotel when I checked out, and they were unable to call me a cab. I was instructed to walk to the corner of the street from the hotel and haul a cab myself. It was over 95 degrees outside and I carrying several heavy bags. The hotel experience overall was meh.

Surprising gem

First time at this hotel. Rooms are a bit small but very modern, clean and comfortable. The best thing is the staff. They were the most friendly and accommodating hotel staff I have encountered in about 50 trips to NYC.

good location

hotel location was great, close to a metro station. was not sure about the room cleanliness...noticed the carpet was not vacummed (or not well?), for some reason there was no hot water in the mornings so had to take my shower at night...one night i ordered room service and when i asked the staff if tip was included in the bill he said 'no' but it was...TV reception was spotty and until mid-night or so there was this loud generator sound that was hard to ignore. On my next travel to NYC not sure i'll choose this hotel.
