I just stayed at this hotel last weekend and found it to be a very clean and comfortable place to stay at a reasonable rate in NYC. Check-in was a breeze! We arrived in the city at 2:30 (check-in wasn't until 4) but they accommodated us right away which was a nice surprised for a Friday on a holiday weekend. The room was average-sized...I've stayed in an similar-style Marriott in DC where the room was a tad bigger (even had a couch) but this is NYC so I expect smaller accommodations. When we arrived in the room we immediately did the bed-bug test (lift up the mattress to see if you see any critters scatter - bed bugs hate light) and it passed the test! Phew! The water-pressure in the shower was incredible, and they provided Bath and Body works toiletries (we also called down for a couple of toothbrushes and they provided them which was helpful).
A few other notes... We didn't use the hotel WiFi as I believe it was $16 which seemed pretty pricey. We also skipped the hotel breakfast (also pricey) and the room service; however, my boyfriend did go down to the hotel bar/restaurant (525 LEX) where he had three beers and a plate of edamame for $50! (Yikes!) This hotel is conveniently within a block or so to some decent restaurants and bars (Ess-a-bagel, Starbucks, Dos Caminos, Snafu (dive bar that serves popcorn)) which was great in a pinch. Overall, would recommend if you can find a great rate or deal for the hotel (not sure if I would pay full price).
