Good option for couples on Upper East Side
Posted Aug 8, 2015
Extremely friendly & helpful staff was a highlight! The rooms are small, but comfortable, and everything was clean except the carpet, which needed replaced. The sink was tucked into an alcove that made it difficult to access, & the faucet was difficult to control - either too much or too little water.
My wife & I were there for our 20th anniversary, so the room fit us fine, but more than two people (or two people not entirely comfortable with each other) would be really tight.
One unexpected benefit was that the hotel is less than a block from the subway, which made getting around town easy, but the location is not the most convenient. However, that means that it is generally very quiet at night. The one issue we had with noise was that the building next door was being demolished, which woke up my wife at 7:00 each morning. Didn't really bother me most days, but I'm a very heavy sleeper. Also, the free light breakfast (croissants, yogurt, cheese, etc.) was a nice way to start each day.
Overall, a nice place to stay if it fits your needs.
