    Great location. Within walking distance of iconic sights like Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and Times Square. Near great shopping districts and good restaurants. Cute rooftop deck. Clean, trendy bathrooms and rooms.

    Noisy and bright location. Difficult to sleep. Not the most relaxing.

    Charming city hotel

    I love this hotel. I’m use to suites and thought the size of the room would be a problem. It wasn’t! It’s location is so great we were barely there. While we were there it was comfortable.

    The shower head is in the center of the shower. Thank goodness I brought my shower cap.

    Good location and price

    The price was low-ish

    My room smelled like cat urine. The shower was in the hallway.

    Perfect for our needs

    I appreciated using the common spaces to catch up on work. Definitely check out the rooftop patio! I was glad that there were multiple bathrooms per floor and I never had to wait for the shower. The artwork and color scheme gave the whole place a cool vibe. Location was close to transit, the UN building, and a delicious bagel shop around the corner.

    The room was even smaller than the pictures seemed to indicate, but it was perfect for my budget and still met all my needs.
