My daughter and I stayed here for several nights in January, and we had a wonderful time! I had paid a little bit extra (was it $10/night?) for a king size bed, and this resulted in a large corner room, very bright with windows on two sides. This room had a connecting door with the room next door, through which we heard a fair bit of noise (happy screaming) from the neighbours. But we all seemed to be on the same sleeping schedule, so their noise didn't bother us.
It's true that there are a lot of people trying to eat breakfast at the same time, but somehow it all worked out and we never waited. There was a good selection at breakfast: various breads and bagels, cereals, oatmeal (a bit runny, but my daughter likes it that way), eggs cooked two ways, yogurt, cheese, waffles. It would be nice if breakfast wasn't served on paper plates with plastic cutlery, but since it was all included in the price, who's complaining?
On the last day we had a late flight out, and there was no problem leaving our luggage at the front desk (no charge for that).
The hotel is surrounded by both Chinese and Italian restaurants - you will definitely NOT go hungry. It's also very close to a subway station, and an easy walk to Katz's Deli.
Check-in was very fast and pleasant!
Unless you are unreasonably critical and hopelessly demanding, you'll be very happy here! less
