Very nice staff, good location. Older but clean hotel. Laundry in basement. Crowded lobby with people having loud cell calls, facetime because no free wifi in rooms, only lobby.

Loved this hotel

Like all the other reviewers, this hotel is awesome. It's huge by NYC standards. We stayed in a 1bedroom suite with a queen sofa sleeper. The bedroom seemed great...I had the sleeper. Now a sofa sleeper is sofa sleeper. Murray hill can't make that any more comfortable than the way they make it. But we had lots of room, especially during the day as we folded the couch up. Definitely would stay here again. Staff was so nice too.
