Cool room. Comfortable bed.

I can't say I got a great deal but it certainly was fair. The room with a view looked out on the top of a parking garage. I would definitely stay here again as a splurge with my husband. The location is great for restaurants and night life and off-Broadway shows. Very walkable area at nighttime.
