I live nearby the hotel and has also stayed at this hotel when my boyfriend visits. I've seen this hotel grow and become the hotel now. It started off as just a hotel with a restaurant downstairs with a lounge upstairs. They have now also made an outdoor beer garden with tons of tv for sports games. They have also started doing night events which I haven't been in but have seen a lot of people dressed up at night going in and out. There is also a great rooftop bar where you can just relax and hang out with friends.
The rooms are not huge, but you can't expect much from a hotel in NYC. It is spacious enough and clean. They provide necessities and free wifi. I also stayed in a room with balcony once. The balcony connects with all the other rooms on the floor and can see into everyone's windows. The balcony itself is nice, but I was walking down and ended up seeing a man changing with his window curtains opened (awkward).. The staff is friendly and accommodating. You can leave your luggage there for the day after check out and pick it up any time before 9pm. They allowed me to have late check-out every time I stayed (about 3-4 times).More
