Definitely very satisfied for our needs. Comfortable beds, lighting, enjoyed the amenities in the room, the room just had a great "feel". Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Nice selection of food at the continental breakfast too.

My gf and I stayed here for a three nights. The rooms are super clean, the price was great for NY, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The location was a bit of a pain because it was like a 10 min walk to the nearest subway station, but for the price I'm not going to complain too...

I stayed at the hotel with my wife for 3 nights.. The hotel itself is quite pleasant, clean, helpful staff, good room service... Breakfast is very basic and primitive (eggs, sausages, bagels, muffins, and some cereals). The only drawback is the area, China Town is quite filthy during the day and not tempting to walk in at night. So if...

When our night time flight was cancelled, we had to find some place to stay till our new flight was ready. We found Howard Johnson at the foot of Allen Street, and while the area was a bit scruffy, the hotel was very good. Everything was clean and neat, and in good repair.

This was a nice updated hotel. Being in the china town area I was worried that it might be dated, but was pleasantly surprised that it seemed fully renovated and clean. The breakfast area was a little cramped with the food in the corner. Getting to it was easy blocked by 2 people because there isn't away around them

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.
