My daughter and I stayed here for several nights in January, and we had a wonderful time! I had paid a little bit extra (was it $10/night?) for a king size bed, and this resulted in a large corner room, very bright with windows on two sides. This room had a connecting door with the room next door, through which...

This hotel is great in many ways - its location was perfect for our NYC trip. We did a lot of walking and shopping and then checked in to stop and rest our feet.

The hotel is very deserving of a three star in my opinion. The rooms are very spacious, you won't get bigger in standard chains such as holiday inn. The breakfast system is difficult as there isn't much space and we had to wait for a table. There is enough selection. The showers are big and nice. I was very impressed...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
