This hotel was in a great location just a short walk from the 72nd street subway which made it easy to travel everywhere we wanted to go using our metro cards. Also a short walk to central park. We had the one bedroom suite with the two double beds and pull out sofa bed. The suite was very spacious which we like, and very clean. Due to food allergies we wanted to self cater, and the kitchen in the room was just what we needed, although tiny, we managed to cook some meals. Supermarket right across the road was very convenient. Rooms cleaned every day. Had a couple of requests and questions which were dealt with promptly and politely. The neighbourhood was pleasant and peaceful, away from all the busy tourist areas and was nice to retreat to after a days sightseeing. Overall we loved this hotel, it's location and it's space. I Would recommend and would stay here again. Read less

Very convenient location. We were there with family and it was easy to jump on the subway, walk to Times Square and Lincoln Center and very close to Central Park. Great restaurants all around.

The location is excellent, just in front of Fairways Market which is open 24/7 and few blocks to a Metro Station at 72 nd. Street. We were upgraded (paid an extra rate) to a 1 BR suite in 24 th floor with a beautiful view
