Stayed here from the 22nd to the 27th of Feb 2012. Really nice hotel! The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was quite spacious, considering how small NYC hotel rooms tend to be. The Queen size bed was without doubt the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The Large shower, room was definitely a bonus as I'm a bit of a big old boy. Oh, andThe Room was cleaned and linen changed every day. Nice touch
The widescreen TV was a bit temperamental and difficult to wake from 'sleep' mode, however I discovered that if you hit the 'power' button on the remote TWICE, it will wake the TV up. (go figure)
There's wired or wireless internet available, which was a godsend as I brought my laptop and called several people using Skype, which saved me a fortune in roaming charges. If you are going to bring your laptop, you might want to consider bringing an extension cable because (in my room at least) the only available plugs were quite some distance from the desk. Maintenance lent me an extension cable though, so all was well.
There's a large safe in the room as well so you can have peace of mind with regard to laptops, passport and money. The heating in the rooms is apparently adjustable, though I never quite figured it out myself, although I'm sure if you ask the friendly staff at reception they'd sort it for you.
The continental breakfast thrown in was a really nice touch and if you're on a bit of a budget could save you some money in the long run.
Great location, right in the heart of Chinatown, with little Italy just around the corner. Authentic Chinese and Italian food, and perhaps more importantly, Italian coffee, just round the corner - what's not to like.
Grand St subway is a five minute walk down the block. The B and D lines taking you quickly to within easy reach of all the major attractions.
A good way of seeing all the sights is to take the Grayline tour bus. This is a hop on hop off bus system that works in three 'Loops' Downtown - midtown and uptown. Costs $44.00 and ticket is valid for 48 hours.
You can book at reception.
Almost forgot to mention, they provide a coffee maker in your room as well. I used that to great advantage.
The only downside to my stay here and it certainly is not the fault of the hotel, is that I had an adjoining door into the next bedroom and the inconsiderate b******s next door would slam their door at 4am and have loud conversations till they went to bed (usually between 5 & 6am) so I suffered quite a bit with sleep disturbance.
Having said that though, this hotel was amazing value and all for about £80.00 a night. Will definitely return.
