We chose this hotel due to its proximity to my son’s school during his move to New York. It was the only hotel near the school which had high ratings and decent rates. The location, besides his school, is very convenient with CVS, Target, and Staples right around the corner. They give you free voucher for coffee and the front desk staff makes the coffee for you too. I had cappuccino made with oatmeal which was pretty good. :) Subway stations are nearby and connects you up and down Manhattan. We Ubered half the time, but when able, subways are very convenient. Safe neighborhood and parking next door is convenient too if you have a car. At first when we checked in, the cleanliness was questionable as there were someone else’s hair on the sheets…but after that one incident, everything was cleaned properly. Very friendly staff and feels homey and inviting. I would stay here again next time visiting my son.
