Travelled on my own in October 2016. After doing extensive research I decided to stay here.
This hotel is in a brilliant location, within walking distance of Times Square, Central park and is near Lexington avenue which has a few subway lines. So access around the city is simple.
I had a single room which was very small but fulfilled my needs. The bathroom was shared but this wasn't an issue.
The staff were very helpful including one of the porters: I enquired about getting a shuttle bus to JFK and he promptly booked me on one for less than $25, far more comfortable than lumping my suitcase on the subway.
Overall I didn't spend a huge amount of time in the hotel; but when I did, it was safe, comfortable and I would contemplate staying there again if I was travelling on my own to NYC.
It was cheaper than all other 3/4 star accommodation which was a big help.
