We stayed here for 3 nights and it is great as a location to visit the City even with the major building works right next door which start at 4am - it actually quite interesting to watch a building site from 9 floors up! The extra charge of $15 a night is strange as they are mainly charging it for hot and cold drinking water but don't provide any room facilities and there isn't much else there, the bar (the 10% discount you are given at the bar is part of your $15 a day charge) was tiny and not worth the visit and then to leave your bags locked up after checkout is an extra $3 charge when any other hotel in the world I've stayed in never charges - NYC may be different? Even with the issues above (plus the room ceiling leaking which they fixed) I recommend it as a good base to visit the city but check that the extra $15 doesn't push it over the room rate for other, better facility hotels.

Location is great for Times Square but is unfortunately next to Scientology building. Ask front desk for more pillows, they kinda skimp on the beds and are a little flat. Face soap bar is the only soap for bathroom sink. Overall nice service and nice desk/call help. Thankfully high up enough from the street so not noisy, but zero view from the window. Can only see brick.
