Great property for what it is. I stayed in the room with no bathroom and that was OK with me to share a bathroom with shower. Some people may not want that. They do have rooms with a small bathroom and shower, but I can't comment on those rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. They also had bottled water, coffee, and a selection of teas for the guest. Price point and location are great. I would definitely stay the again on my next trip to Manhattan.

I stumbled across this place in my search for a hotel for a trip to NYC that I was planning, that was apparently during one of the most expensive times to go to NY (UN Gen Assembly, US Open, etc) and I'm so glad I came across it. The hotel is in a perfect location just steps from 5th and Broadway, Madison Square Park, several train stations, and a few blocks south of the Empire State Building. All in all it was about a 45 min walk in any direction to hit all parts of lower Manhattan. It was very clean, and all of the staff that I interacted with during our stay was fantastic. The ONLY downside was the size of the room, it was basically a cruise ship cabin. We were fortunate enough to secure a room with a private bathroom (some have shared) but even then the toilet was so close to the wall I had to use it sideways lol. But hey, it's NYC, I kind of expected that anyway, and we weren't planning on spending much time in the room to begin with. So overall I'd say it was perfect, and I'll definitely look to book here again on any future potential trips to the city!
