Excellent front desk staff, room was well appointed, noise level very low, very close to the subway (1 block from N/Q trains). View of the city from the room was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Central CA traveler Very convenient
Just outside Manhattan, only three subway stops away from the heart of midtown. Great compromise between price and location. Yes, you have to ride the train to get into the city, but nice room at a lower price than would be paid on Manhattan, for a room that is not quite as small as the average NYC hotel room. Short walk to train station, and lots of dining options within walking distance. Service has slipped some since my first stays there, but still a reasonable choice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SCCA Dave Great staff!
This was my second stay at this property. The staff is excellent, and sincerely willing to help. The room was clean and well maintained.
I opted to purchase the breakfast buffet vouchers (same buffet that is free at other HI properties, less the cinnamon rolls and biscuits & sausage gravy) but will order from the ala carte menu in the future. Scrambled eggs on the buffet were over cooked, dry, and had a rubber-like texture.
Overall, my impression of this hotel is very good, but a little disappointed in the breakfast buffet offerings.
I would recommend this hotel!
