Exceptional 10.0
Great place for a budget friendly stay
The location was great for the purpose of our trip. Amsterdam St, 2 blocks over had great restaurants/bars to end a day. Central park was one block up the other direction which made navigating the city very easy. We utilized the subway a couple of time from a station right by the park. The Blue line took you south to get you close enough to all the main attractions. We walked most of the time and even with the hotel being located at 81st street, we walked back from 34th a couple of times. There is so much to see that the walks do not seem like a chore. The room was very basic but we only needed a bed to crash at the end of our day. A fridge would have been nice to utilize to house a cold beverage for the end of a busy day. A coffee/tea maker would also have been nice as we enjoy a morning drink before getting on with our day. There was a breakfast buffet on the 2nd floor which we walked down to and were able to get a tea and coffee to go at $2 per cup. The buffet there is $17 a person. We are light eaters in the morning, so just enjoyed our hot beverages back in our room and then made way to our daily adventures.
