Hotel stay
Great location and very helpful friendly staff. The rooms, however, are tiny! Especially considering the cost. And the "fitness Center" deserves a special comment. It too is tiny, too small for more than two people. More important, the equipment is worn and hasn't been maintained. And the rubber mats on the floor are dirty and misaligned so that the fitting is very tricky Someone is going to trip and fall and get hurt.

High price Small room Bad Value
One night stay. I got in late so did not want to jack with making things right. Room had no remote for tv so it was useless. Thermostat did not work in room so no control. Bed was very small and pretty uncomfortable. Smallest room I have ever stayed in. It was one and one half steps between bed and bathroom. Whole room was maybe 100 square feet. All this for $400. Worst value ever paid for hotel and I have stayed in no less than 1,000 hotels.

Great place to stay in NYC
The hotel staff was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was very convenient to places to eat, the subway, and Times Square. We were four couples traveling together and I booked all he rooms through Though the rooms were small, they were comfortable and the beds were great. However, one couple in our group was in room 237 which was right next to the elevator. There was a huge gap in the door seal that allowed noise to easily come into the room...and there were people using the elevator late (1:30am) into the night, keeping them up. Also, this same room should only have a twin bed in it. There was literally only a couple of feet on the one side of the bed and the end to walk around. The other side of the bed was pushed up against the wall. The only way to open asuitcase was to put it on the bed.

A place to sleep and no more
Very poor. The hotel is very old, the rooms are tiny and old, unlike the pictures, there's no fridge, microwave or even laundry here. For this price, I expected a lot more.
