This is a fine place for the price. In a perfect world, I wouldn't have to pay $55/night to park and $12/morning for coffee.

fits the bill

the hotel has been updated nicely and is close to the subway. Rooms are on the smallish side, but not claustrophobic. Staff is friendly enough and will give you two of their great choco-chip cookies if you're noce!

Average hotel

Was only there for one night. The room was small but a good price for the city. Woke up with the toilet leaking. I would not recommend it for an extended stay.

One night stay

We had a mini 2 day vacation in New York and this hotel was perfect for our needs. The hotel was very affordable, our room was ready early, everything was clean, the room was comfortable and modern, the location was great and very proximal to landmarks that we planned to visit, and the staff were friendly. The cookies were also delicious.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Dylan's Candy Bar is only a short walk from this hotel! It was a fun, convenient place to start our day after leaving the hotel.

Staff needs lessons in etiquette

I attempted a check-in at 10:30 at night AND MY ROOM WAS NOT READY!!! I was offered a free drink in the bar and told that it would several minutes. I don't drink. After an hour, I went to the front desk and the original person who was to come find me had left for the day. I finally got into my room and was told the kitchen was closed despite having watched the bar waitress serve other customers food at their tables.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

To get to Time Square from this area, take the E-Train. There is a very clean subway station with a Starbucks and multitude of other food kiosks down the stairs from Lexington Ave.
