Nice hotel right in the middle of Chinatown and Little Italy. Very close to two subway lines. We were upgraded to a suite when we checked in and it was fabulous. The breakfast buffet that is included with the stay is excellent. Scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage, yogurt, oatmeal, toast and a make your own pancake or waffle station. We have stayed here 3 times and it has always been great.

5 Night Stay

Pros: Staff.
Cons: Fix the bathroom window
Location: In Chinatown with Little Italy a few blocks away, which made for great walking to different eateries.
We stayed 5 nights at the BW Bowery Hanbee and were satisfied with our accommodations. The hotel is located in Chinatown, with Little Italy a few blocks away. If you are headed uptown to the typical sites of Times Square, Rockefeller Center, etc., expect to use the subway. There is a sub station 2 blocks away that is easy access. We had a queen bed room with a sitting chair and small round table tucked in a small alcove so when you're in the room, you are sitting on the bed. Mattress was a little softer than we like; bathroom window was the only ventilation and the window was not on its track and after reporting it, didn't appear was going to be. We cracked it when we needed too and used a coat hanger to get it closed. Complimentary breakfast was included and there were more choices than we expected and it was nice to not have to drop $40+ for a meal. Front desk staff was exceptional, every one of them! They gave great advice on how to travel to attractions.

Nice hotel in an excellent location!

Pros: I liked the cleanliness, the location, the personnel. The furniture was pretty basic, but clean and functional.
Cons: Sound proofing would be helpful. We were placed in a handicapped room (although we didn't ask for it), but that meant there was no bathtub.
Location: The hotel is about 2 blocks from the nearest subway entrance, so if you use that system, it's easy to get around. See above.
This hotel is in a great location; it's situated in Chinatown/Little Italy, and within walking distance of Tribeca, lovely shops, and restaurants. The room itself was not at all fancy, but it was comfortable and certainly adequate for anyone who is planning to be out and about NYC for most of the day. Every day the maid did a wonderful job keeping the room sparkling clean. The front desk personnel were very helpful and gave us a map and directions to the places we wanted to go. In my mind, the only drawback was the thinness of the walls. Toward the end of our stay two young men occupied the room next to ours, and when they spoke in raised voices, I could hear much of their argument. I took care of the problem by knocking on their door and asking them to keep it down, and they were courteous enough to comply. I should add that the rates were very reasonable for NYC. We purchased a package that included the room and airfare.
