Smack in the middle of Koreatown and close to Penn Station, this budget-friendly hotel in a cheerful old Beaux Arts building may be one of the best deals in town. Nevermind the drab green-and-burgundy decor when your room features treats like free Wi-Fi, an iPod plug-in, and a bathtub. In the morning, the free continental breakfast goes beyond the usual fare with the inclusion of granola and oatmeal. Perhaps the best part about staying here is access to Vu Bar on the hotel's 14th floor. In the evening guests and locals head up to this year-round mellow rooftop bar for a cocktail in the shadow of the Empire State Building.

I searched for months for a hotel that would not break the bank. While a few years ago, this would have been the price for a high end hotel in NYC, nowadays it is to be considered cheap. I saw differnt star ratings and was anxious to see what we had gotten ourselves ito. It was great! It looked like it had been newly remolded. Clean, great bathroom, great comfortable bed, and we could even turn around in it!!! Breakfast that was very convenient and
the location was perfect. I would recommend them in a minute. Average daily charge with all those TAXES was $203.00. Hope this helps someone looking for a resonable hotel in a great location.
