Not a bad place, just know what you are getting
Location is great, a block away from the 6 subway line. Breakfast is fine, coffee is good. Rooms are quite small, but manageable. Biggest complaint is that carpeting has that been around 5 years too long look/feel. Bring slippers. Ridiculously overheated as all NY buildings are, but you can open windows. Second complaint is that the lighting is very dim, making it difficult for older gals to put on make-up.

Since it is a small hotel, it felt cozy. The staff was very attentive and courteous. I would only suggest that better and varied kinds of pastries be served for breakfast. I will surely go back again for my next trip to New York. And most of all, the rooms are very clean! I will highly recommend this hotel to others

OK in a pinch, but not recommended
The Franklin is OK if you're just in NY to see the city and sleep in your room. But I can't recommend it, especially if you're there on business. First, the electrical are almost impossible to access, and there aren't enough of them. I literally had to move the bed and the desk to plug anything in. And while the bed was comfortable, the pillows were like 2 hard slabs. The hotel was clean, and the staff were very helpful, but other than that...

I have stayed at The Franklin several times when visiting my family who live nearby. The rooms are very tiny, but I'm OK with that, as I am mostly just there to sleep. However, the room was incredibly hot, and the only way to adjust it was by opening the bathroom window (not too much or a pigeon would have joined me in the room). I also was unable to get more than 4 television stations. This visit didn't go as well for me.

Small but convenient
The Franklin is a small hotel and the reception area is pretty bare, but the staff is friendly and they do offer wine and cheese at 5 pm and a cold breakfast in the mornings (we didn't try either but the breakfast looked OK). The rooms are very small (even our upgrade to a better room), but the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms have been redone and the rooms and hallways are clean and well lit. The neighborhood is great: convenient (a 10-minute walk from the Metropolitan Museum) and there are lots of interesting restaurants and shops.
