I recently stayed at the hotel metro for a short city break to NYC. I spent hours looking for a hotel that was good value but ultimately recommended. I picked the Hotel Metro because of its position in the ratings, in the top 100 of NYC on trip adviser.
Other things which helped me decide was; the included continental breakfast, position and free wireless.
I'm glad I choose this hotel because it was in a good location, very near Times Sq, Macy's, Empire State building and a subway stop. The hotel is very clean, a clean decor and the staff are incredibly friendly. They make you feel welcome, will help you with maps, suggestions and aim to please. The hotel is not on a main street, so remains quiet with minimal road noise.
The rooms are large, airy and most importantly have incredibly comfortable beds. The room contained an Ipod dock, widescreen TV and most of all - a fridge and safe. The rooms are well connected to the free wifi. The bathrooms were clean, had great fluffy white towels and upmarket toiletries. The rooms were cleaned daily and the staff very nice. Some folk had mentioned in reviews that no tea/coffee facilities were available in the room, this is true but there was always free fresh coffee and tea in the lounge which was easily accessible and ultimately better than the instant coffee/UHT combo which is the norm
The breakfast which was included for free, was better than most american style continental breakfast, which is always different from the European style. It contained fresh muffins, bagels, patisseries, breads and cereal. Drinks included orange and apple juice and tea/Coffee. Also fruit and yogurts were available.
The hotel also boasts a roof terrace which is sheltered but affords a great view of the empire state building. A complementary gym is also included. The hotel also contains a bar/restaurant which was friendly, possessed a good menu and was handy.
In summary; a good hotel, good service and excellent location. I would choose this hotel over most of the hotels in the mid price bracket in Manhattan, especially most over most chain hotel groups.
