don't let the street the hotel is on give you pause. there is a lot of construction going on (as for feb 2017), but this is new york, you're always going to find a blend of old brick fronts and glass
modern. you've got a major subway line one block away. you got the alamo drafthouse one block away.
as for the room itself, it's on the small side (1 adult, queen bed) yet clean. bathroom is also pretty small ("like banging your elbow on the door while brushing your teeth" small), but again, it's clean. but really, who cares. if you're spending more time in your room than outside in ny, then you ain't doing it right.
