It was convenient for visiting our daughter in Brooklyn. Not sure how convenient it was for the many other guests who were foreign tourists and would presumably be taking public transit into Manhattan.
Pros: Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was very good, with excellent muffins and pastries. We were surprised to find on-site parking since it wasn't listed in the description, but after learning it was $35/night we opted for street parking our 2nd night and had no problem finding a space close by.
Cons: Everything seemed clean, but the duvet had black marks on it which were likely from shoes. Somewhat understandable since the room was small and there really wasn't anywhere to sit and watch TV except from the bed. A queen bed would have made more sense.
