Parking was the worst part of the experience. There are very limited spaces, we were lucky enough to get a spot on the street. Super easy walk to the F train, convenient to drive in to Manhattan as well. Breakfast wasn't the best, but the staff are hard-working and courteous. Sometimes the room smelled of smoke, which was odd and...

I stayed there for two nights, I was a little skeptical when i booked this hotel but all turned out very well. The staff very friendly and polite (especially the lady at the night), the room big enough for NY standards, clean, nice big bed. The area is not that bad either.. 21st is a busy street. I was surprise...

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel an we liked it very much. It was close to a metro station - only few minutes walking, which would take you to all main tourist attractions in the center city in about 20 to 30 minutes ride. The hotel was clean, friendly, and the room was comfortable. The breakfast was very good....

This hotel is at a convenient location very close to the F line which takes you to tourist attractions. Quiet at night. Rooms are good, not too small and clean. Breakfast has many options but seating can be packed. Lobby smelled disgusting the first day but when we checked out it seems they cleaned it. Rooms were clean and did...

Decided to go to NYC for the first time in December. It was absolutely amazing! This is your average hotel, with a decent breakfast, and a decent view. Nothing extraordinary, but I was very pleased! It is a very short walk to the subway and only took about 10 minutes to make it into the city. I will definitely stay...

Not what I expected, staff smoke cannabis in guest bedrooms before check in they also don't clean properly, fold up dirty towels to be re used don't change bedding. Close to subway, acceptable breakfast.

This was a very nice hotel. The price to stay there was reasonable. The service was excellent and the staff was warm, friendly, helpful, and professional. The room was clean and comfortable in all the ways that matter. The Wifi worked well. Breakfast was delicious and we were offered several hot and cold choices. We would stay here again.

The hotel is nice. Bed comfortable, nice shower. The problem is that, next to the hotel, there is another equally tall building that block the view, and in order to see the city you have to lean out the window... Breakfast included is just ok, pretty basic, not even croissants or honey available. I guess it's OK, but that is...
