Bed was very comfortable, great location, and the price was right!
Room was loud even on the 11th floor (mostly due to the exposed heading pipe running floor the ceiling that kept rattling and banging through the night. Our room didn't have air-conditioning and it got very stuffy at night; so we tried opening the widows which were very hard to open, and the locks were broken off, so once closed it wouldn't stay closed tight to seal out noise. The shades were small plastic blinds vertical blinds that did little to block light or noise.
Tiny, musty smell
It's very close to Times Square! But that is not really a plus since everything in New York is readily accessible via subway. Daily maid service was nice.
Smelled musty, no amenities, not enough outlets to charge electronics like cell phones and laptops. Also there were bedside lamps but they were not plugged in and when we looked there weren't any outlets!!! When I return to NY I will definitely stay elsewhere! Mildew noted in the bathroom. And the place really needs to be renovated.
Best bang for your buck
Wonderful pleasant staff. Very helpful and inviting. Great location to everything!!!!! Clean, and good enough size for what we needed.
Location was good. But, I expected more from a 2-star hotel and even at the price offered. The staff were not unfriendly, but seemed a bit perfunctory. Perhaps overworked.
Main complaint was that I was given a 2nd floor room on street side and there was construction outside the window till 3am the night I stayed. There was only a window air conditioner that worked well. However, it meant that there was not closing out the sounds from the street. Otherwise, the pillows were ok, but the bed was very hard relative to many other hotels I have been to. Second, the water in the shower had very low pressure, took a long time to get hot, and the diverter was whining the whole time. In comparison the sink had good pressure and heat. But, the plug wouldn't stay put making shaving with fill sink a problem. Lastly, there was a chair in the room, but no desk configuration other than for using the dresser as a makeshift desk.
Convenient locaton and good value; free wifi
No kettle to make tea
It's central position to the city.
Some of the staff were unhelpful and it was in need of a complete good clean. The rooms were very dull and could do with a refurb!!!!!!
street noise when we were on the 2nd floor
The room had enough floor space to pace around in without being cavernous. It was clean and comfortable. A good deal for the location.
Close to times square
room very hot. No A/C or other room temp controls. no ice machine
The proximity of Time Square
The window left all the street sounds, a chance that we have the air conditioning.
staff was very helpful and courteous; very comfortable beds; housekeeping did a good job
would have liked a hairdryer in the room and coffee available
Times square was right round the corner, and there were plenty of nearby dining options.
The staff were rude, the room smelled, the cleaners only made the bed and left rubbish in the room, the noise late at night meant we didn't get a wink of sleep, and they charged us to store our luggage. Also, security is not great, as they make you leave the key at the front desk each time you leave the hotel, and don't require ID to pick the key up.
The staff was very polite and helpfull.
close to center of town.
Very very very noisy.
