A pleasant stay Superb location, one subway station to cross East River to reach Manhattan Super helpful staff

Stylish & comfortable lobby/bar/cafe with a laid back but very helpful staff.

Didn't Like: Area, nothing around; No Tv Room, Key was not chareged, no elavator; some empl do not pay attention what room U did order! Did Like: Fresh, Sanit. bed & Sheets! Also PC room!

Nice place to stay if you are passing through and need a bed. Wouldn't recommend if you are not comfortable rooming with strangers.

The staff are helpful. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. Room was clean and quiet. Wonderful experience. Would stay again.

We went to a wedding at the Metropolitan. The Local was about 100 feet away from the venue and such a reasonable price. Super cool decor, great bar, and other amenities.

The place is appropriately hip. It is a place to sleep: clean, O.K. (but not great) beds. Staff is AWESOME. Location is convenient to Midtown. Open all night.
