Not the Ritz, but excellent location
Situated near the Subway, Meatpacking District with nice restaurants down the block and they stored our luggage and allowed us to have a shower at 8pm as our flights was only at 11 pm
The hotel is pleasant enough. Staff are friendly and the shared bathroom facilities were clean which is normally not the case (with shared bathrooms). The rooms are somewhat cramped with you barely being able to pass at the foot of the bed to get to the other side as it is so close to the wall and the paint job in the rooms need a bit of attention. That said the bed is very comfortable and bedding clean and the type you would expect in any good hotel. It is so conveniently situated. Its close to the metro and the Meatpacking District restaurants are literally just down the road. If you have a couple of days in NY and on a budget you cant go wrong.

Got what we paid for.
location, affordability, historic feeling
Our first impression of the hotel 309 was reminiscent of a sketchy new york apartment with a grumpy landlord. The front entry was dark and littered with garbage outside of a locked door with a buzzer that either didn't work or was unattended. When we did reach the night clerk by phone, he was suspicious until we assured him that we did have a reservation, and IDs. The lobby was old and tattered and smelled like stale cigarettes. Our tiny room was surprisingly quite clean and charming; although we only had one washcloth to share. Luckily, we were in New York City, and had plenty to do the whole next day before coming back strictly for sleep. But our keys didn't work, so we were back with the buzzer and phone again. The new night clerk was more reluctant and rude than the previous one. When he finally let us in, he scolded us for demagnetizing our keys by having them in the same pockets as our phones. We got back to our room to find our bed freshly made, but our towels weren't replaced (not even the washcloth we shared the night before).

I love it and would like to stay here again
Good location, nearly to subway station only 2 minutes, they have refrigerator ,microwave and small pantry which you can cook
I spent 1 week at Hotel 309. Firstly I didn't like it because it was a little bit dirty and old. However, I saw they try to do some renovation during I stay there that why it was cheap , after that I get used to for the noise and dirty and found out that was OK. I can excess to the hotel at any time with my key card and the location is very very great because it 5 foot step away from the subway station and not far from free wifi zone and nice restaurant which I feel comfortable like I stay at my home. Moreover, there is small pantry in the room which microwave and refrigerator. So, you can cook
