if you want a basic hotel in a fairly reasonable central location then this sort of fits the bill, adequate seems to be the appropriate description. There are no refinements, there is for instance no bar, and breakfast is in a crowded noisy room undersized for the number of guests.
There are four rooms per floor, and it goes up to the 36th floor. Problem is there are only two elevators. Nine of us were staying there, and over those four days the record waiting time was 16 min. It became a joke each morning amongst us. The problem is people start doing things like pressing the up and down button as a way of guaranteeing getting into an elevator even if it was going in the wrong direction.
Although it calls itself "Times Square" don't get the feeling that it's a 30 second walk from the front door, but it is probably reachable in 5 to 10 min walking.
Overall therefore I wouldn't go back to this hotel, but I guess my company used it as the price was reasonable if you just want to be able to get your head down to sleep, and then go to work the following morning, for a few days.
