We booked this hotel because of its location, near Times Square & the Subway. The room was kept very clean, although we seemed to get less clean towels left every day. Others have commented about the two lifts, well for 3 of our days there was only one. We had a note pushed under the door saying if we had been waiting for more than 15 minutes then to ring down to reception, & they would bring the lift up manually. In the event, we only ever waited about 5 minutes & never really had a problem. The breakfast seemed ok on day one but was pretty basic. OK for a piece of toast, a yogurt & a hot drink. If you want a typical American diner breakfast, then Westway Diner on 9th Ave. is good. Turn right out of the hotel, then right onto 9th Ave & it's several blocks up on the right. The staff were all very friendly & helpful, but we did have one issue. We wanted to see a show, & the concierge told us that Jersey Boys was a ' hot ticket ' & he could get us seats for $179.95 each. We asked if it was possible to get cheaper seats, but he said it was unlikely, as the brokers buy them up in advance. So we went with him. When we arrived at the theatre to collect the tickets they still had seats avaiable in the same area for $127 !! Perhaps we were too trusting, but felt ripped off for over $100 by someone that we thought worked for the hotel. He's independent - beware, always check the theatre for availabilty first.!!
