Location: This property is on 29th street, between 7th and 8th. It is a short walk from Penn Station and I found 8th Street to be slightly less congested. Keep in mind that events at MSG can make the area very busy, especially if walking with bags. The hotel is easy walking distance to Herald Square, Times Square, MSG, etc. Its location also makes for easy access to the various Subway lines, PATH trains, and regional trains. There are abundant places to eat and drink nearby - pubs, bars, Italian, fast food...just about everything! Check In: Check in was fairly painless although I had to get a different room because the first one was still being cleaned when I went upstairs. As a PC Platinum member, they gave me a gift bag with water and chocolate covered raisins upon check in. I thought it was a nice touch! Room: The room was an okay size...it IS NYC!! . Plenty of outlets, flat screen TV, comfortable pillows/bed, and was very functional. My sister has stayed here in the past and they provided ear plugs due to outside noise. They were not offered to me, but I did not find the outside noise bothersome. That said, the walls of the hotel are somewhat thin and it was easy to hear hallway noise. Amenities: Complimentary breakfast - it was the normal HIEx breakfast spread - a mix of cold cereals, coffee, juice, sausage and gravy, scrambled eggs, cinnamon rolls, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, etc. Wifi - complimentary and the front desk provided a code. There are also a couple of PC work stations in the lobby.
