Murray Hill East = Sweet

Our stay here was pretty ideal. The location was most convenient and everything about the facility was just as described. We were given an upgrade to a larger suite, as I believe they were undergoing upgrades and refurbishes om several suites. This building was built in 1964 and the last extensive remodel was likely in the late 80s or early 90s - so upgrades are ongoing. The staff was helpful and courteous. We will certainly consider staying here in the future.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Since you'll have a full kitchen here, you'd like for grocery shopping to be easy - and it is. D'Agostino's is very close by, has reasonable prices and a good selection. We made the mistake of going to Trader Joe's in Union Square - too far and extremely crowded !!

Great value and location

The hotel is really close to shopping and the subway. The staff was really helpful and nice. The size of the suite was great! On the negative side, the hotel is really dated. Though the bed itself is comfortable, the street noise makes it difficult to sleep.

Check out Ellen 's Stardust Diner (Times Square) and Ars Nova Theater Company (54th St and 10th Ave). Stardust has an awesome singing/performing wait staff and Ars Nova is a small but awesome Off Broadway theater (general admission).

Location!

Great hotel if you want space in NYC. It's more like a studio apt. than a hotel room. Rooms not fancy but I love this hotel.

Remodelation required

This hotel needs a remodelation in their rooms. The kitchen is old, the toilet is also old and not working well. It would be helpful a microwave oven. But in general has a good location and the staff is very helpful.

Friendly Staff

I was kindly offered a choice of rooms upon check in. I chose a large basement room w/kitchenette...and added bonus that more than compensated for it being a basement room was that it opened onto secluded garden like space...a great private space for the money. This hotel gives travelers the feel of coming home to their own little 80's NYC apt. As with any older building, there were periodic issues with a lack of hot water and the a/c wasn't as exactly cold. Overall this was a great value and a comfortable room.
