Fair price as compared to other hotels near Manhattan. I was also shocked when I found out about the complimentary breakfast a few days into my stay- it was a great way to help us save some money on an expensive trip to NYC. The rooms are very small, but we really only used them to come and sleep, and I’d assume that’s on par for the city. They safely store your bags until you can check in, or even until you check out. The area was safe enough, a bit dirty, but that is not the hotel’s fault. You can hear the sounds from outside, like sirenas and the subway, probably normal for NYC, just bring earplugs if you think it will be a bother. A few nights I could hear my neighbors all hours of the night, and the hotel staff was swift to talk to them once I complained. They also came and cleaned our room daily, which in this post-covid time isn’t always the case, so I appreciated it. I would probably stay again if I traveled to NYC.
