I just got back from NYC after staying at the stanford for 4 nights. It was pretty much what I expected. The rooms were decent sized..and it was clean. Nothing fancy or extra but fine for getting ready in the morning and sleeping at night. The staff was very helpful and nice. The breakfast in the moring was good..a lot of bagels and bread...I wish there had been some fruit or other things like that...but it was included and got us on our way. I would stay here again if I was looking for a budget hotel.
