    Hi guys,

    I am going to stay at The Lexington in NYC in late February, I found a great deal (104.00/night) with them so I booked two nights. Since I am just Silver, no chances for upgrade.. so I probably will stay in a one queen bedroom. But, since I am going there with my wife and baby, I was wondering if any of you guys already stayed there and could tell me if thats reasonable.. I also booked, just in case I decide to cancel the Lexington, the DoubleTree that is kind of 2 blocks from The Lexington and it will cost me around 30 bucks more.

    I haven't stayed at the Lexington and decided against it after reading reviews on a few different websites, but others may have had personal experience to share. Since I see your shiny gold HH emblem, DoubleTree is known for upgrading when space is available, and apparently people rave about their cookies. I have an upcoming stay at a DoubleTree for one night and was told to expect an upgrade by HH when they booked me (of course nothing in life is a guarantee, plus your hotel is in NYC and my stay is local so I might have better luck :p).

    Would the upgrade + free wifi + breakfast be $30 worth?

    Not to me, but that's a personal choice. In NYC 'd grab a quick bite at one of the many deli/bodegas in town rather than powdered eggs in a hotel lounge. And even if paying for wifi I don't think the $30 covers the difference. The upgrade is a wildcard and that could be nice, particularly if traveling with the kid (something I don't deal with personally) but there are no guarantees on that. What's the gamble worth??

    30 bucks total (for 2 nights).. and just afraid of getting a really small room at the Lexington.. I dont know about the DoubleTree but even the small rooms dont look that small.. what do you think? I am thinking more about space than anything else.. (I guess I should check the square footage).
