A large option in the heart of the Midtown area with easy access to public transport and the 34th Street areas attractions, including Macy’s and the Madison Square Garden area.
Queues form at the reception desks during peak periods creating a rather crowded lobby area. The property generally lacks personality and charm, although it proves popular with younger travellers and large groups of tourists, many of whom are on city packages.
Many international travellers, groups, and Latin Americans.
