Dated and rundown. I felt like I was staying at a motel where people cheat on their spouses and the blanket in my first room supported that conclusion. However, the staff was nice and accommodated me when I asked for another room.

I didn’t realize that I booked a room with a shared bathroom. It’s basically like a dorm in college. Room was small, but I expected that. With it being New York and all. Location isn’t too far away from Times Square, just a 15 minute walk. I probably won’t ever book again just because I like my own space. Staff was very nice and easy check in.

There needs to be a gym and the no bathroom thing should be in bold letters instead of small
