My girl friends and I travel to NYC every year, and the most recent trip we stayed here. It was just wonderful. It's just a short walk from Penn Station which is very convenient and a HUGE plus, since we'd rather not have to take a taxi or subway after we've been on the train for a few hours.
The staff was excellent..very friendly, thorough and quick. The rooms are fabulous. Very spacious for the price, clean, updated, but the lighting was a bit dim.
The hotel is very close to Times Square, Bryant Park and Macy's so that's helpful to travelers who may need a landmark for getting back once they've seen the town. We were also close to the Empire State Building, maybe a 15 minute walk.
There were so many good restaurants and shops and deli's and convenience stores nearby..I could go on and on!
A fabulous hotel and I would stay here again in a heart beat!
