Great value and great location

You can't beat the location. Just off Central Park and less than one block to the B and C train. The staff was extremely friendly, including the front desk, housekeeping, and the dining room staff. We were very happy with the quality and quantity of the breakfast; that alone makes this hotel an even better value. On the down side, the carpets and linens were dirty and stained, the window air-conditioning unit let lots of cold air blow into our room (it was snowing when we were there), only about half of the cable channels worked, and their version of an exercise room was one old stationary bike and elliptical. That said, it's still a great value for the location, and I would still recommend it for a traveler on a budget.

Great location

The hotel is nicely located near the 72nd street subway. The heater was a little noisy but the rest was just fine. Good value for those on a budget.

Excellent location.

Considering its location, all the other things can be forgiven. Small room but very clean. Everything works. What more can one ask?

Teensy Tiny

Our room, a queen, was so tiny, we had to coordinate our movements. It was, however, clean, and we spent very little time actually in the room. Very convenient to our daughter's apartment, which was our reason for booking this hotel. The front desk kindly let me look at a king room--we will definitely book a king for our next visit to NYC.

Great location, very little else to speak of

The positives are 1) Wonderful location - very close to just about everything 2) Friendly & helpful staff 3) Great shower unit The negatives, well, I hate to be too negative, but the room is tiny - we had a 'queen' room and it was just about 3.5m x 3.5m (ok + the bathroom) - God knows how they photographed it to make it look ok. We saw a normal room and it's minuscule - That said, its a very very expensive area and most other hotels are waaaay more expensive, so you get what you pay for. The bed was clean, but the mattress was very old and indented in the middle resulting in night time collisions. I got bitten by something - I presume it was a mosquito but I can't say for definite. The breakfast area comprised of too few tables resulting in a queue for seating unless you were first in or got up late. The food was basic but edible and apart from the plastic forks & polystyrene cups & plates was 'ok'. Finally as a building surveyor, I suppose I'm attuned to it, but the room was shabby with poor decorative finishes, rust around the loud & old air con unit, old & dated furniture and the maintenance had obviously been done on an ad-hoc basis for many years. Its a 14 story hotel with one very small lift, a couple with suitcase often resulted in mayhem getting to the hotel lobby. So in summary, great if you treat it as somewhere just to rest your head, but breathtakingly small - If you did "swing a cat" it would be dead on the first turn

Concert getaway

The location is spectacular. The room was very very disappointing. It was extremely hot and we had to run the air conditioner (window model, very noisey) all night to even get the room to somewhat normal temperature. The only reason the value of the room is somewhat decent is solely due to the spectacular location. Two blocks to Broadway one block to Central Park, great! Lots of good spots to eat along Columbia and Broadway.

GARBAGE

The only good thing about this hotel is the location! Otherwise this was one of my worst hotel experiences. The bathroom was beyond tiny, the Wi-Fi was non-existent, room extremely small, the pictures are a complete exaggeration. There were holes in the carpet, the elevator took FOREVER!! I will NEVER stay in any Comfort Inn hotels again, this hotel has completely blown it for me!!
