An excellent base for visiting NYC
Posted Nov 2, 2016
The hotel was really good and less than half the price of hotels in Manhattan. Its location is fantastic. Just a short, convenient and very comfortable bus ride into NYC on the excellent 320 bus, directly to Port Authority bus terminal from where it is really easy to get anywhere else in Manhattan. Bus stop is just round the corner from front door. Free parking option less than a minute walk, or chargeable ($12 a night) hotel parking a little closer still. Back of hotel opens onto a plaza with dining options. Bar and Starbucks in lobby. Very efficient and friendly staff who can advise on any queries with your local travel and amenities. Excellent gym. The room was really comfortable, very clean, we even had a view of NYC skyline (well, over the top of car park from our 7th floor but still nice!). Incredible bed with pillowtop mattress on which they placed another pillowtop cover (a word of warning though, the bed is really high). The room was recently redecorated and had a homely feel with warm colours rather than usual modern hotels' dark greys. It didn't look like much on photos but in reality was most pleasant and comfortable. There is a microwave, fridge, a comfortable 2 seater sofa and chair, and a footstool. Good shower with a bathtub which again felt more homely than just a shower stall, with good water pressure. Plenty of good towels, nice toiletries. We found this hotel a pleasant surprise and would absolutely recommend it for visiting NYC.
