Convenient location. Good Value

Close to Grand Central station which gives you easy access to public transportation. Nothing special about the room. Overall good value for Manhattan.

Short Stay

Great value for what we were charged and we extended one night at more than double the original price. Very clean rooms w/very helpful staff. Convenient midtown location and appreciated the $25/day parking garage around the corner since we drove on this trip. Pleasant and, actually, very good restaurants within easy walking distance. Easy to get a cab. Stayed in room #610 which actually had a view over a courtyard as opposed to the brick facade of the rear of another building.

excellent value, good location

this was perfect for our weekend stay - well located for our activities & close to Grand Central subway; friendly staff, clean, and lots of room (living room, kitchen, bedroom & bathroom). Not the most modern but perfectly fine for us - or a family.

Great value

This was an amazing value for New York City. I had a large light-filled studio apartment with a kitchen (range, microwave, small fridge, sink), queen bed, living area, flat-screen tv, and bath. The decor is dated, the carpet needs replacing, and the bed was just okay, but the staff was friendly and helpful and everything was clean. It's not in a touristy location, but the area felt safe and buses and subway are nearby. All in all, a great value.

Nice and affordable

Great location, very quiet and clean hotel. Decor is little bit old but very clean, good choice if all you're looking for is location, location, location. Hotel crew was very accommodating and polite, no wi-fi included but only $7.95 for 24 hrs. Definitely, would stay there again.

Park Avenue Tavern is only 2 blocks away (corner of 39th st. and Park Ave.) is great for happy hours. The food and music are also very good.

Always a Great Stay!!

I have stayed many times at this hotel and always have an enjoyable stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious which is a find in New York where rooms are generally small. The full kitchen is an added bonus and the location can't be topped for getting anywhere in Manhattan.

Convenient Manhatten Location

I went to NYC for a one week class and the hotel was conveniently located at Lexington and 39th on the east side. The rooms were spacious and well laid out with a great little kitchen, outfitted with pots, pans, and silverware. It would have been nice to be able to enjoy these features, but the air conditioning was inoperative for the first half of our stay....and it was hot and stuffy inside. A cool shower might have helped, but the bathtub would not drain... so a shower required that you slosh around in water up to your ankles. Although I never received a message on the room phone, the message light irritatingly blinked indicating that I had three messages for the duration of our stay, even after twice requesting that this be addressed.
