Was in New York in Apr 1st 2010 (please ignore the April 2011 choice that TripAdvisor gave to me, i cant select Apr 2010). Was there for 2 weeks and stayed in the same hotel for the entire duration.
Previously on my earlier trip to New York, i stayed at Comfort Inn Convention Centre but the hotel price had gone. Best Western was the next cheapest available.
This hotel is nearer to the Port Authority station.
As a muslim couple, we had no issues getting halal pizza's nearby and there is this nearby Pakistani place that sells delicious (but oily) dishes that will sure to clog up the artery soon enough.
We went there to go on a shopping trip (FACTORY OUTLETS) bender.
Anyway back to the hotel, area is safe (cause i frequently went out alone and came back wayyyy after midnight), there is a taxi workshop facing the hotel, a train track passing nearby (barely notice them) and a near by building where they keep the horses (as long as you don't walk past it, you wouldn't notice they were there)
Had no problems with the staff, the breakfast dining room is small but adequate. Breakfast no complains for non fussy persons.
Going to New York again but prices have gone up *sigh* .... so staying in a place we got through http://www.airbnb.com/ now.
