The location of this hotel is ideal. Close to Mott Street, Chinatown and SoHo shopping. The room was large for Manhattan. Everything was immaculate. The bathroom was a class above what I had expected. We were on the same floor as the lobby and literally a few steps from the desk - however we had a quiet night for the...

Used my Best Western points that I have been saving to travel to New York City. The staff did a nice job making us feel welcome from Canada. Great location, close to Mulberry Street and Little Italy. Short walk to the subway and walking distance to many attractions. Very clean and comfortable room.

very friendly, welcoming staff. I was a little on edge about location of the hotel since I was here primarily for visiting Midtown Area.

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.
