We canceled two room within the available time. We called them, and thay confirm us that the twe rooms were canceled. One month later they charged them to us via visa.

Great Value in Midtown Manhattan 5/11/2010

If you're looking for fancy decor, expasive rooms at 100's of $ a night, this is NOT the place for you. If however, you're looking for a comfortable bed, a pleasant staff and a reasonable rate, this IS the place for you. When visiting NY, we spend our time at shows and sight seeing, not in hotel rroms! Pros: Reasonable, Accomodating staff, Convenient location Cons: Slow elevators Bkfst area crowded when hotel is fully booked more

Good Hotel for the price & location 4/4/2010

We stayed here for a week during Westminster Dog Show. The room we were assigned was very big considering some of the comments made earlier. There were 4 in the room and we did not feel cramped. The housekeeping was great, one day the Do Not Disturb sign was mistakenly left on the door and when we returned late that afternoon housekeeping offered to come in a clean. Our room was quiet - there was no view to speak of but I would prefer quietness to a view especially in N.Y. The breakfast buffet was adequate, fresh fruit, bagels, etc. We will stay there again and request the same room. Pros: Close to everything, clean, quiet Cons: Elevators a bit slow more

High value gem.. 4/1/2010

I was happy staying here because it was located close to penn station and to a lot of restaurants. They had responsvie staff. It was a bit of an unexpected surpirise to pay the 8% Javits Convention Centre fee so look into that before you go. But even with that amount it was a good deal for a couple or single business traveller. more

Great for the price 4/1/2010

I stay here several times a year and am always happy with my stay. Friendliness at front desk depends on who is working that day but they accomodate my room requests and I have not encountered anyone there who cannot speak English (as mentioned in an earlier review). This hotel really gets my vote because of housekeeping! Spotless room every stay. And there's no pounding on your door at the crack of dawn. They do have some really small rooms that i could not see 2 people in for more than one night but others are typical for NYC. Breakfast is nothing special but it is free. I don't need any services so for me this hotel is just right. Pros: Free phone & breakfast, tempurpedic beds Cons: Rooms vary greatly in size more

Good hotel in a good location 4/1/2010

We stayed there in late August and were very satisfied with the service and the location. It is close to Penn Station, Herald Square, and good Korean restaurants. We would stay there again. Pros: Location and price; comes with a free breakfast Cons: Can't think of any. more

Poor Customer Service 4/1/2010

Our overall experience at this hotel was very negative. The staff was very rude and short and spoke little to no English. The rooms were extremely small. The ""business center"" is located in the poorly lit basement and consists of three ridiculously slow PC's (two of which wouldn't connect to the internet). They have a nifty kiosk in the lobby that allows you to print off boarding passes, but it wasn't working when I went to use it. I asked the hotel attendant standing close by if I was doing something wrong and he said, ""No work."" Which was obviously extremely helpful. The hotel staff at the front desk certainly must have hated their jobs too. And apparently the concept of a debit card hasn't quite made it to Apple Core hotels because they can't handle a simple charge. They strongly encourage credit cards for whatever reason and I don't quite know why because the staff wasn't able to clearly explain the situation in English. Why punish the poeple who actually want to pay with money they HAVE and not borrow with a Credit Card? Isn't that a huge part of the reason our economy sucks right now? Too many people borrowing who can't afford to? Anyway, I'm not bitter. Lol. Pros: Location Cons: Rude employees, don't speak good english, small rooms more

a good surprise 4/1/2010

Hi I booked this place thinking the neighborhood and the price would get me a bad place, but I was very surprised at the value. My room was spotless and well-equipped with good fast free Internet, free breakfast, and big bathroom (even though the room itself was tight as are most NYC hotel rooms). I plan to stay again! Pros: close to subway, Penn Station, easy walk more

a cheap and convenient closet 2/23/2009

I stayed at La Quinta because it was the cheapest I could find. The staff was courteous, numerous, and responsive, but the room was a closet. For the price, it was a decent place to stay and in a convenient location. Pros: good everything Cons: small rooms more


great locaton, great price 8/22/2006

Rooms look like internet photo. Front desk staff not friendly but efficient. Prompt service. Toilet would not flush, came quickly to fix, still had to flush twice to get to flush. Iron didnt work quickly brought us another one. Comfortable queensize bed. Small room compared to other higher price hotels. We had lots of luggage doorman didnt seem interested in helping even though was standing there but did assist once we asked. Great location blocks from empire state building and other major attractions. Really enjoyed our stay . Would stay there again. Pros: best deal for the money Cons: staff could be more friendly more
