  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Location, location, location. I have stayed in many different parts of Manhattan. I loved this spot because it is right next to Central Park and the B & C Subway lines. The staff were friendly. The hotel is old-fashioned. The fan in my bathroom was very loud.
