Sorry to hear this wasn't what you were looking for, but i'm not sure why, as it's a very nice hotel that gets very good reviews. You're also near my often recommended Ess-A-Bagel (Third Ave at 51st St) which has one of the best bagels in the city, makes for a nice, and relatively inexpensive, breakfast among local NYers.
For the future note, that the crossed out rate shown by HOTWIRE is the average retail rates of hotels of this star rating in the zone for your dates, not necessarily the rate of the underlying hotel currently being offered. Always feel free to ask the board for help before your purchase as we can usually help prevent any unexpected surprises. Can you please add a reply to this thread with the amenities HOTWIRE shows for this property, including any 'accessible' amenities, when viewing this purchase using the MY ACCOUNT >> MY TRIPS link on the top right of their home page. Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.
