Stay: Nov 10-14, 2006.

No charm, but functional and clean. Renovated on 2005, this 15-stairs hotel was quite nice for a short stay. Next to a couple of subway stops and to Penn Station, probably not the best area of Manhattan but easy to go anywhere else. In my case to be near Penn station was a must as I arrived and departed from there.

Unique Qualities: The room was newly renovated, very clean, and size was more than OK (for NYC). Complimentary Internet access (wired and wireless), there is as well a small business room with PCs, fax and printer, and a very small fitness room (you can use as well a nearby gym, but I decided I did more than enough exercise wandering around!). Very comfortable bed, and a whirlpool bath that had a good use after a whole day walking the city!

The views were awful, but... who goes to NYC to stay at a hotel room? Ask for a high floor or a room facing the backstreet, or it can be quite noisy.

The complimentary breakfast was quite good as well (especially the hot cinnamon rolls) but not many choices.
