    We expected a tiny New York hotel room. This hotel room was spacious, quiet, and comfortable. Staff was extremely friendly and room was clean. Perfectly located at a reasonable price for Times Square. Highly recommend.

    They took our Credit Card details on check in but didn't reserve any funds/security deposit on it from what I can remember. They used it when we left to pay the city tax charges for your stay on check out.
