The good: very close to Manhattan; the shuttle is a very convenient option for getting there; the view is phenomenal, especially from the roof. Friendly front desk staff; a hip. modern, clean and cute room, a very comfortable bed. The food downstairs was also delicious. Also, I was lucky to find free parking in front of the hotel for the duration of my stay. The safe was nice to have, too. Staff was very helpful! They kept on bringing buckets of water as I was hoping to keep myself hydrated the whole time. Overall a good decision for an affordable price hotel relatively close to Manhattan. The neighborhood can be a little sketchy at night, but I didn't run into any problems. It takes about 2-3 blocks (5-8 mins) walk to the subway, which is quite convenient.
