New York first timers!

Hotel location was perfect! 3 blocks away from Grand Central Station. Also wasn't a lot of street noise at night. Room was quite large, has a small kitchen with stove & fridge. Separate living room & bedroom. Hotel is older but for the price, space, & quiet street. Would definitely recommend!

Nice Suite in a Great Location

This hotel offers nice comfortable suites equipped with a kitchenette. Our suite had a king-sized bed and a queen sleeper sofa. Nestled in the Murray Hills neighborhood of Manhattan, it was quiet and only a few blocks from the Metro at Grand Central Station.

"Scotty's Diner" is a block away and is open 24 hours per day. It offers local tastes and is reasonably priced. Side note: avoid the "House of Lasagna" next door as it was very pricey and was not very good.

Our First New York Vacation

The hotel is in a quiet section of Manhattan about 3 blocks from Grand Central Station, where you can access not only trains, but the subway. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well as the doormen. The room was very clean, spacious, with a small kitchenette (stove, refrig, dishwasher, sink,cabinets, counter space and utensils) The bathroom is small, but there is counter space and a cabinet under the sink for toiletries. Two, tall and spacious closets with shelves and rods. We had a queen size bed that was not very comfortable, but wasn't horrible. The rooms were soundproof and I never heard any of the other people.

A bagel shop right around the corner was very good. An Italian restuarant just down the street was also excellent. There is a fresh-food deli market about 4-5 blocks away. Starbucks and Dunkn Donuts 2 blocks away.

Gigantic Room For Little Money

I loved this place! I was a little worried about this hotel until I checked in. What a great place to stay. The room was huge, one of the largest rooms I have ever stayed in. It was a little dated but who cares, the space was phenominal. I think this is the best value in NYC. Good location nice staff and I have nothing but good things to say about this place. It is a very nice 3 star hotel maybe a low 4 star. I will stay here from now on for every trip to New York.. GREAT GREAT GREAT

See The Book of Mormon! It was my favorite Broadway show ever. One of the funniest shows ever! Do not miss it. It is sold out all the time. However, if you go to the box office, about 2 hours before the show. They have a few seats but always good ones.

How many ways can you say DIVE???

This has got to be the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in over the past 40 years of travel (oh, right, there was that one motel on I-44 in rural MO that was infested with spiders). First impression was spot on: walked in and was told without any apology that the nonsmoking 2 bed rm I had prepaid for was unavailable; there was only one room with a queen-size bed. Turns out it was 50 feet from the FRONT DOOR of the hotel..directly in line with its front door!! I protested and was given a two bed SMOKING room on 11th floor. Carpet was threadbare and heavily stained; exposed wires ran along moldings and in closets; no microwave in kitchen and only small half-fridge. Threadbare vellum blanket; I don't think that sheets were changed during my entire 5 day visit; toiletries were sparse and low-quality; wall hairdryer will burn your hand if you use it for more than 1 minute. Terrible pillows; ceiling stain that was at least 2 feet in diameter; no one to help with luggage before 8 am. And, of course, no internet in room. This does not deserve a 3-star rating..even 1 star is generous.

Kitchenette great for long stay

The area was perfect location for me. The kitchenette provided a great alternative to eating out for all 3 meals. The patio was a nice way to unwind at the end of the day & the gym had just enough to keep me to my workout routine. It was also great to have a laundry room on site!
