Amazing price+ great location, Finally!

My daughter and I stayed 4 days, for school shopping and whirlwind sightseeing. Lets face it the price is amazing, your right mid-town off 6th ave or 5th. Food of all kinds surround. Sweet helpful staff, Very clean and classy with a European room size (smaller) and decor. Free light breakfast is nice, saves $, and Macys across the street..

Great Value

This hotel had a great location and a great price. It was litterally next to the Hampton and the Hilton, but why pay more for a name? The hotel was was really nice and so was the staff. We came on a bus trip that dropped us off at 33rd and 7th and the walk to the hotel was less than 10 mins. The check in/out process was extremely fast!!!

Good Hotel in a great location

Very good place/location, some rooms (e.g., with numbers *05) may have more noise at night - garbage pickup trucks), otherwise a great place for the buck.

Our minature bed was ...

Our minature bed was extremely uncomfortable for two and the room had about 2 feet to spare on it's three sides. Yes, clean and neat. Staff friendly and polite. But still, an incredible rip-off in any place but NYC. If you are looking for an upscale youth hostel, you will be happy here.

Excellent Location

Excellent location close to the Empire State Building with a rooftop patio for all guests available 24hrs. Rooms are slightly bigger than what I would expect for a Manhattan hotel. (But still small.) Great continental breakfast each morning where you can lounge in a comfy dining room where you can read the paper or watch the morning news on tv. Staff was very friendly as well. On the downside, the heater in our room was not working. We stayed in Sept. So for most of our stay, it was unnecessary to use it. There are only a couple of elevators. So during rush hours of foot traffic, expect to wait a little. But overall, I would return there if I had the opportunity.

Small room, but good value

With the high cost of hotels in NYC, this hotel made a compromise between room size and cost. When all you need is a place to sleep and shower, this is a great place. They had everything a business man needed except space to pace about.
