Great family trip

The location is good and the staff is very helpful. The price is awesome, and there is food Emporium near the hotel. No free wifi is the only drawback in my opinion.

A Good Value

This hotel was a good value primarily because of its ideal location on W. 42nd St. Two complaints I would have are that there were no coffee makers in the rooms, and no way to get coffee room service, so you had to actually leave the hotel for the cafe next door for coffee. It's a great cafe (with breakfast priced right), but I like a little coffee before I have to get going anywhere. The other complaint was that the beds were super super soft--hard on the back if you have any trouble. Still, the hotel is in a great location for a good price, the room was clean, and the staff was friendly.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Theatre Row Diner is recommended, and is the only way to get room service (not coffee, though), but I think it's overrated, given that it's so easy to find good food in NYC.

Maybe the worst hotel I have ever stayed in

The best thing this place has going for it is a roof. The rooms do not have heat -- isn't illegal? Or immoral? This is not in the description. Also, the room in the descriptions looks nothing like the room you will get -- they look itchy and as if time -- and cleaning materials-- may have forgotten them. The management did not want to give me the two bed room I paid for -- telling me they were all booked up -- until I made a scene. The fact that there is hotel open that doesn't provide heat -- but a heater!-- is a travesty. A disgrace. This made me want to reconsider using this service to book a hotel in the future. This is kind of place you go to a cheap day-screw. Not much good to say about this place at all.

Unbeatable for the price

I stayed here for 6 nights while I was exhibiting at a tradeshow. For the price you pay, you can't beat the location and the room size. Sure, the decor in the rooms are a little dated and the bathrooms are small, but the double room was big enough for a colleague and myself to stay in. We had a minor rodent issue but it was dealt with by the hotel staff. I would stay here again, for sure.

Best kept secret in NYC

Been coming to this hotel for over 25 years.and have seen it grow better every year. On the outside it looks like a plain motel. When you enter it is modern, fresh and welcoming. The rooms have a microwave, fridge and flat screen tv with 152 channels. Best of all is huge outdoor summing pools surround by lounge chairs. On a hot day you could imagine yourself being in LA. Great neighborhood and a professional and pleasant staff are very helpful.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

42nd street cross town bus is right on the corner. Since the hotel is on 10th ave and a bit of a walk to Times Square you can get a transit card, take the bus for $2.50 then within a two hour period you can transfer to the subway for free.

Normal Manhattan Booking

Free Parking is good. But wifi is not free and payable only in cash. I forget to bring enough cash so I stayed with no internet. This is not convenience.
