I stayed here for a quick one night stay. The hotel is located behind the bus station on 39th between 8th and 9th, closer to 9th. It's an easy walk from the subway stop and is along a street with a number of hotels (comfort inn, hampton inn, element, plus a few more). As a Plat, I was upgraded to a King room from a standard (handicapped access) which I appreciated. The room had the bed, desk, chair and armoire with a view of the city. The building is is the standard old style NY building. Small elevator, only a few rooms per floor and not much space in each. The bathroom was an okay size, but there was no shelf space around the sink. Toiletries were standard. Front desk staff were nice, check in/out was very quick. There are two PCs in the lobby and a sitting area. They open up a second area in the back to expand the Breakfast buffet seating area. That offering is the standard expected at any HIE (I only grabbed a yogurt and left). There were newspapers downstairs, not delivered to the room. I don't think I'd want to spend a week there, but for the one night stay, the location and price were perfect to meet my needs. I prefer a bit more elbow room for longer stays.
