Bernadette R. Families with older children United States of America, November 29, 2014
Gotten a bit shabby

The maid staff, most of the font desk staff,close to subway
Feels as if their systems are starting to slide, breaking coffee pot, phone not working, electrical outlet not working, no maid service because they were understaff.

Good SoHo Location, Even Better Staff

Helpful Staff, Convenient Location, Quality for Price
I stayed here for three nights, and felt like I was treated like family. The staff were warm and welcoming. The location is convenient to the Subway and everything you can find in SoHo, NoHo, and the Lower East Side. My room was small, but this is New York, what do you expect?

Too noisy

New remodel, location, clean
I paid over $200 for one night and my room was underground no window. It faced main busy street so traffic was noisy, can hear people walking by, not only that street construction noise. Room was cold even with heater so I used my jacket and wore socks. I asked for different room but reception didn't help me.

Convenient location, bad ventilation

Location, Function, Convenience
The general smell of the room was overly fragrant and the air filter in the ac unit needed to be changed. It was incredibly dusty and I'm not sure if that is the result of my bronchitis or if that is just an illness I caught but it didn't help that the air had little to no ventilation and no fresh air.

This is exactly what you need when visiting NY.

Great location. Really helpful and nice staff. Very clean rooms and good beds.
A lot better then what I expected for the price we paid. This is close to everything that is fun in NY. Soho, Little Italy, East Village and the subway right outside the door.
