Right price, a little chilly

I've stayed here a number of times - it's a great deal, as long as you're ok with share bathrooms. There is very much an old brownstone feel to it, but nothing too outdated. It definitely tries hard, giving good amount of towels, free shampoo and flat screen TV. The window for the room had an air conditioner in still and it was super cold, so the heat was working over time. I would stay here again, just don't think you're getting a fancy hotel.

Good budget hotel

I had to stay here for a night (cost me about $85 including taxes). I only have one fairly major complaint, which is the heat. It simply wasn't enough. Housekeeping did send someone up and he turned it up, but I still shivered my way through the night (this was at the peak of winter in early Jan). Apart from that, the bathrooms were clean (no wait at all) and the staff not unfriendly. There is a 24x7 restaurant just a block away. I would stay again, assuming the heat problem was an aberration. My room number was 210.

simple, perfect for short stay

I was in town only for the night and for this Hotel 17 fit my needs. There are no bathrooms in the room, which was inconvenient, but doable for a short stay. Great price if you are okay with an average room!

Great location, amenities

I ended up getting a hotel with a shared bathroom. The room itself was fairly clean, but both the bathroom showers were clogged so it made showering an unpleasant experience.
