A bit noisy, but a good area. You can walk to Times Square and you're even closer to Central Park.

not dangeous but not terribly interesting either. Yes that is an ok walk to Times square are which at your end starts at about 47th 48th street.

Just realise that the area you are choosing is very commercial almost in the business district. I would prefer to be either in the seventies on Madison or dowtown in Union Square area.

For the money though you are making a good choice.

A word of warning about the Wooward... we had intended to stay there in mid-April based on the recommendation of a friend. However, we learned that only 1 elevator was working (for guests as well as construction workers) due to remodeling projects. I assume this would be completed by your trip... but you might want to check. We stayed instead at the Best Western President just off Times Square and were very
pleased.

It's a fine area though, as others have said, it's pretty noisy.

As for restaurants -- you'll be right next to Soup Kitchen International, the take-out joint that inspired Seinfeld's Soup Nazi episode. It costs a fortune but it's so, so good. I think it closes for the summer around Memorial Day, but if you're there before then, get some seafood bisque for lunch.
