The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, the bed was comfortable, the street noise was almost non-existent, and the breakfast buffet (well worth the extra money) was a very good way to start our day. I saw somewhere on the hotel's website that they had the best coffee, and I cannot disagree. The location could not have been better. Just a 5-minute walk to the center of Times Square and very easy walking distance to the theater district. The only minor drawback in our room was small. We had a king-size bed, and the bed was as long as the room was wide. But if you're looking for a place to sleep after a day of exploring NYC for a good price and a great location, this is your place!
