Affordable, clean lodging

Pros: Nice front desk staff.
Cons: It's nice to have a king bed, but you really do lose a lot of space because of it. Try to clean the marks off the walls.
Location: Chelsea Galleries, Chelsea Market, HighLine, MSG.
The staff at this hotel were very nice and the room was clean. Like everyone has said, the rooms are super small. It worked for me, but for two people, it would be a very tight squeeze. If you have luggage, even harder. Not impossible if you get along well. There are some marks on the wall that made it look less clean than it was, but this is from people bumping their items into it because of how small the room is- lol. The location was a little iffy for a single female- not necessarily bad, but a little too isolated in the evening for midtown. It wasn't a bad walk with a rollaway suitcase to Penn Station, and a great location for Chelsea galleries, which is why I stay in midtown. The mattress was nothing special, but fine. I would stay here again.

Good for a one-night stay

Pros: It was close enough to Penn Station that I could walk with my luggage and not get exhausted.
Cons: The price.
Location: I was only there overnight, so I didn't do much nearby, but it is near to Times Square and not far from Penn Station and the Empire State Building.
This hotel was nice. The room that I was given was quite small (or not exactly small but the king size bed mad it feel small), but it had everything I needed. The location was fairly close to Times Square and about 1/2 mile from Penn Station, so it was pretty easy to get where I needed to go. No breakfast was included but there was coffee in the room. I had a late arrival and the staff were excellent in meeting my needs. Overall, the hotel was fine although it seemed somewhat expensive for the facilities provided, but it was New York.

Reasonable priced parking across the street.

Good location next to Hells kitchen neighborhood. I normally take the train but had to drive this time so the reasonably priced parking conveniently located across the street was ideal. In and off Manhattan from the Lincoln Tonnele was also super convenient.

Hotel nice but neighborhood ugly

I only stayed one night. The room was small but not unusually so. That's normal for New York. The bed and facilities were good. While the location was good (close to Penn Station), the neighborhood was ugly. I've found a nicer hotel and better neighborhood.

You get what you pay for (In the good way)

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, stylish, friendly service, clean throughout, modern, great value for money
Cons: feathered pillows, rooms could be bigger
I stayed at this hotel two seperate times. The first time I got a small room single bed queen size about the size of my bathroom at home. Yet with that little room they fit a lot into it, such as flat screen tv desk with wifi and cable hookup wardrobe with included free safe storage and a nice sized bathroom everything was very stylish and up to date. The second time I stayed here it was for a double bed room more room same layout desk again free internet wifi and cable hookup flat screen tv nice bathroom. It was really great for the new york prices and the location of the midtown hotel was great. The only thing I didn't like about the room was the feather pillows as soft at they were I didn't like the famous feeling of the ends poking through stabbing my neck. I will also add that I had a problem with the A/C unit in the double bed room and the front desk staff was amazing he actually left his desk after I called and came up to my room checked it out found there was nothing that could be done and returned with extra blankets. There really was nothing that he could have done but I appreciated that fact that he didn't say that but that he took the time to treat me as though I was a valued customer. Which I walked away feeling as such. Other hotels would have said we will have a technician check out the problem tomorrow morning; leaving you in the cold with no heat. But the staff at the gem didn't do that and I will always stay at this hotel anytime I'm ever in New York and happily refer this hotel to any of my friends. A+++
