This new hotel offers a great location on Manhattan's popular Lower East Side--and at an affordable price. You'll find plenty of dining temptations just steps away. Try a sweet or savory crepe at the acclaimed Creperie NYC, right across the street. And since the Lower East Side was traditionally a Jewish enclave, you'll want to dig in to a thick, juicy pastrami sandwich from Katz's Delicatessen, or some Jewish "soul food" at Yonah Schimmel's Knish Bakery--both within a 5-minute walk. For a vivid glimpse into the past, visit the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, also a 5-minute walk, and tour the actual apartments where 19th-century immigrants lived and worked. Bonus: Il Laboratorio del Gelato, serving award-winning frozen treats, is across from the museum.
Within a few blocks of the Comfort Inn's entrance, you'll find a variety of music venues, including Arlene's Grocery and the Mercury Lounge. The Delancey Street and Essex Street subway stations, both about 2 blocks away, offer access to Midtown, Queens, and Brooklyn.
Back at the hotel, head to the 7th-floor deck-- it's a great place to open a bottle of wine and take in the city views. Mornings, you can enjoy complimentary buffet breakfast, featuring hot waffles.
Your guestroom will be a welcome sanctuary after a full day (or night) on the town. Grab a cold drink from the refrigerator, and watch your favorite HBO show or a Hollywood hit on the 32-inch flat-screen TV. Research tomorrow's itinerary via complimentary wireless Internet access. Next morning, you can brew a fresh cup of java with the in-room coffee/tea maker.
