Why we like it

  • Suites have fully stocked kitchenettes and dining areas
  • Laundry facilities on-site are perfect for longer stays
  • Excellent location close to Manhattan landmarks while in a quieter less touristy area
  • Rooms are spacious, and not just by Manhattan standards
  • Friendly staff goes out of their way to make your stay welcoming

What you need to know

  • Fairway Market, across the street, provides any groceries you might need
  • While comfortable this is not a luxury location
  • Hot water can take awhile to get going
  • Rooms are a bit dated, but always clean
  • Bedroom lighting is a bit dim, so a reading light could come in handy
