The rooms are not fancy but are clean. They have a work station in the rooms, which is critical if you are staying for business. Beds are comfortable enough. Breakfast buffet is about what you would expect: edible but nothing special. Wifi is a little slow but okay. Lots more room than midtown.

We loved this location. It was close (1 block) to the Metro station. We used the B Line every day and it took us to all the places we wanted to see. It was right there between Little Italy and China Town so there were places to eat no matter which direction we walked. The hotel itself is nice and...

A friend and I were in Manhattan in late February for a long weekend in order to plan a big scale event that we are hosting in the Financial District. We couldn't afford to stay at the hotel where our event will be held (lol) but we wanted to be within walking distance or a short subway ride away. We...

Excellent food choices around the hotel - from hand-pulled noodles to street ha chung (rice noodles with curry fish balls) - it's a great area to explore New York's Chinatown. There are many options for those less daring or open-minded, so don't worry. We had the 9th floor corner room which had amazing morning light and no one above us....

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.
