Nice rooms and a good locationIt's a nice hotel in a great location. I just wanted to mention a few things though.

I was also surprised there was some building work going on in and around ...

A home away from homeMy second stay in the same room. Although the house was full, it was always quiet and I never had to wait to use the shared bath. My only regret was that again my travel schedule meant I had to miss the hostess Debbie's famed Friday jazz night and fish fry! I will be sure to stay on a Friday next ...

Get what you pay forI've stayed here a couple times since it's affordable (for NYC) and centrally located. The conditions of the rooms need to be upgraded with new paint (paint is peeling), new carpet, tile/grout), chips in showers. This time, I experienced a water leak that flooded the bathroom floor (water was leaking ...
