Great location on W 36th St. Macy's at one end, Empire State two blocks away at the other end. Much closer to Times Square, Bryant Square and Grand Central Terminal than I imagined so handy if
getting off the airport bus at either of the latter two locations.
Good room size for NYC, lots of pillows, soundproofed for internal noise (no noise from lift or ice machine even though I was next to both).
Secure safe in room. Great bathroom.
No BBC America on TV (if that is important).
Extensive breakfast buffet (hot and cold) - lots of choice and good quality.
Minor issues - for breakfast all the plates, cups and cutlery are plastic and disposable so it feels slightly cheap.
There is a construction site opposite the hotel on W36th St at the moment (October 2016) where work starts at 4.30am - but bring ear plugs and it isn't a problem. [Less]
