~Ideal for cruise passengers -- location was a $6.50/5 minute taxi ride from the Manhattan Cruise Terminal. (2012).
~Good location within walking distance of the theater district, Times Square, Columbus Circle, Central Park, Hell's Kitchen, Rockerfeller Center, etc.etc.
~5 - 7 minute walk to the nearest subway station.
~Spacious clean room and bathroom (Note: We were given an ADA room)
~Quiet (except when guests decided to yell in the hallway, not the hotel's fault).
~Concierge desk available to help with airport shuttle arrangements or shows.
~The lobby bar was lively most evenings.
~Rooftop bar and pool available. (Note: I believe they open it to the public as well as hotel guests, so it was rather crowded in the height of summer).
~Breakfast not included. There are several nearby cafe style places to eat breakfast or the hotel restaurant.
~No particular 'view' from our room, but that didn't bother us.
~Little bit of a wait at the concierge desk -- he could do with extra help.
We booked this hotel on one of those websites where you don't know the name of the hotel before you book, only the price and the neighborhood. Considering that, we were very happy with this hotel and it's location for $150/night. It was particularly convenient for us being cruise passengers, as it was only a $6.50/5 minute cab ride from the cruise terminal to this hotel after our cruise. It was also very convenient to the Lincoln Center where we had tickets to Warhorse one evening.
