                The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was really convenient for since I needed to be close to the Javits Convention Center.

                Unfortunately, my room could use a little bit more cleaning. I had noticed the sheet on my bed had some set-in stains on one of the corners. Unfortunately, I didn't notice this until the last night of my stay. I immediately replaced it with the sheet from the other unoccupied bed. I also noticed that the bed skirt was not changed for some time considering that there was a set in mark of a shoe print on the corner of it. I don't think the bathroom was ever mopped during my stay since the same dirt on the floor was there before I left and when I came back.

                This is a corporate low end hotel with boutique pretensions. Poor maid service, cheap towels and bath amenities. very small room. burned lamp shade. Few hangers in wardrobe. Advertised and supplied bathrobes but one had no belt/ tie. Elevator was out of repair one night. Booked a king bed got a queen bed.

                Although the room was not spacious it provided all the facilities needed and it was clean. The staff was courteous and knowlegable of the neighborhood and its ammenities.The location was excelent, if one does not mind walking a couple of blocks to the nearest train station, however, cabs are constantly available.

                The price, if you can call $200/night a good deal for a very medicore hotel.

                Very cramped rooms. Not a nice area to walk around.

                Location close to Javitts is ideal if attending a conference.

                Room 104 is terrible, just off lobby so loud. Very tiny, and smells of old mops. Avoid it and 103.

                Close to Jacob Javits Convention center, easy walking distance. Clean hotel. Friendly staff. No hotel parking but you get a good overnight discount at a local parking lot.

                Mattress was to firm for my taste, others may feel different. Wireless access while free was useless at times. While the signal was good sometimes internet access was very slow to totally useless.

                As long as you're not expecting to stay close to restaurants, trains, etc., you'll be fine here. For the price, this place works out just fine. I know NYC, and knew exactly what I was getting myself into when I booked a hotel at 36th and 10th. If you're not comfortable with a 10 minute walk to get to the train, then stay elsewhere.

                I felt it was not clean. And the fact that it did not offer breakfast was a disadvantage.

                Clean room that was very close to the convention center. Nice staff who were very good in helping us get around.

                The room is exceedingly small as is the hotel itself. Photos make it all look larger, but there are only 4-5 rooms per floor and the room was exceedingly cramped, especially for the money we paid. Bathroom was tiny, towels were small and there was no room to move around. If someone is sitting at the desk, you cannot get past them and the chair hits the bed.
