The original review was posted on Trip Advisor (10 March 2020).
My rating: 5/5.
The location is close to the Greyhound Bus terminal, which is convenient for me as I traveled to NYC by bus. It is very near to Times Square and the center of the action. The bed and room are more than adequate for a solo traveler, as is the bathroom. There are complimentary tea, coffee, and hot chocolate in the basement lounge area.
My room was on the fifth floor (uppermost), and there was no elevator. I only brought a duffel bag, so no big deal, though they offer to bring your luggage up to your room. Picking up water or hot drinks from the basement became a good sports exercise.
Date of stay: March 2020.
Room tip: There is no elevator, so be sure to ask for a lower floor if you don’t fancy going up and down to the basement to get water and hot drinks.
