Not Great but not the worst

The hotel is old the heating system is as old as the building . You can hear the pipes at night while you "try" and sleep. There were times it sounded like somone was going to town on the pipes with a hammer. The furniture is small old like the room. The bed is just a bed not comfortable at all. The location of this hotel is perfect . The staff some friendly and helpful. They do have a great cleaning staff. No laundry access just FYI . My overall opinion is it was like going to stay in your grandma's old extra bedroom. Not a lot of modern amenities but not too bad. I was there during the coldest season and it was warm (although the heating system will keep you awake at night). The room was clean (just small old and uncomfortable). I guess you get what you pay for right .

To sleep in the city, to wake up in the city.

Check in was fast and easy. The wait for the elevator was longer then expected. The room was cozy and welcoming. Wish there was a thermastate to control the earth of the room. Check out was fast and easy as well.

Clean, friendly, walkable to everything!

Pros: See above. :P
Cons: More outlets, and a minifridge and microwave would be STERLING!
Location: Broadway theatres =1 to 7 blocks. Walked to Rockefeller Center to watch skaters. The Wax Museum, Ripleys, BB Kings and Hard Rock = walkable!
We were greeted by wonderful folks at the front desk every day, who later secured us an affordable way to depart to the airport, coming right to their door to get us! As many towels as we needed on demand, and helpful advice on sights and eateries. The room was larger than I thought it would be (being NYC), with a big closet and bathroom, and roomy dresser drawers. (I mean with enough room for 4 women in 1 room, sharing mirrors and biffy time!) Maybe could use more outlets, esp. for recharging things, One block off Times Square to catch buses, close to the subway, but the major attractions in walking distance. I love you St. James!

The best location

This hotel is located just one block from Times Square. You can get to almost all New York main tourist attractions just by walking. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. It's very affordable, so you get great value for the price.

Affordable, clean, location

If you are looking for an affordable, clean, & comfortable place to sleep then this is the place to stay. Very close to Times Square and variety of restaurants & delis nearby/next door.

Daughter's High School Graduation Trip

Pros: How close it was to time square and the restaurant next door with the amazing buffet.
Cons: Better lighting in the room. No light in the closet and the room lights were dim.
Location: Time Square Hard Rock Cafe
We took our daughter to New York as a high school graduation gift and if you are looking for a fancy hotel this one isn't it. However if you are looking for a nice comfortable place to sleep book this room; who needs to pay a resort fee for a room when you won't be spending time in a pool or a gym. No it didn't have a fridge or microwave in the room but there are two delis right next door. I have to have coffee the moment my feet hit the floor so not having a coffee pot in the room I thought I would die but I just walked right next door. The hotel is close to everything you need that's the best part; you are a block from time square. The only problem I had was that our room was on the front of the building and the outside noise was loud but hey this is New York. The room was clean; the elevators worked and the air conditioned worked. I would stay at the hotel again; you are not in NYC to see a hotel room anyway. :- D
