    Great location. Within walking distance of iconic sights like Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and Times Square. Near great shopping districts and good restaurants. Cute rooftop deck. Clean, trendy bathrooms and rooms.

    Noisy and bright location. Difficult to sleep. Not the most relaxing.

    Charming city hotel

    I love this hotel. I’m use to suites and thought the size of the room would be a problem. It wasn’t! It’s location is so great we were barely there. While we were there it was comfortable.

    The shower head is in the center of the shower. Thank goodness I brought my shower cap.

    Good location and price

    The price was low-ish

    My room smelled like cat urine. The shower was in the hallway.
