3.5 star hotel
0.59 mi from New York University
Best Rooms: Suites are your best option for a great view of the Manhattan skyline, as you'll be able to see the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building from them. Deluxe rooms are located on higher floors, so consider booking one (instead of a Traditional room) if you want at least a partial city view.
Best Rooms: Rooms at the front of the hotel have street views, but other than that, rooms just look at other buildings.
Best Rooms: If you're looking for a great view of the city, be sure to book a room on floors 15 - 19, facing the south.
