"The location of this property is terrific...only a couple of blocks to the subway, quiet street, safe, and allows you to really feel like you're a resident of New York City. Communication with Tiffany was great the entire time (from reservation to check-in). I give this property a very solid 4 stars because of the location, communication, price, and in comparison to other options in the area. Upon arriving, the property does seem a bit more worn than the photos suggest, but everything was nice enough and I certainly wouldn't go so far as to say I was disappointed...just something to be aware of. There were a few discrepancies in the property listing...some negative and some positive. First off, there is an iron, hair dryer, and a few hangers in the closet. We weren't expecting these items to be provided, so we brought our own. Secondly, the property description states that the bed is a queen, but I'm confident that it is only a full. Since my wife and I are 6' and 6'4", this was somewhat of an issue, but we made due. On the day of our arrival (90-degree humid weather), the vent in the kitchen was blowing hot humid air into the room. I contacted Tiffany by text to see if there was any way to turn it off and she said that she was unaware of the issue, but she could have someone come look at it that day or the next. We declined since the hot air blowing into the room was somewhat sporadic. We didn't notice the issue again over the next 8 days, but it would have become an issue for us had it continued. It was very hot humid air and smelled like it could have possibly been a dryer exhaust vent. Again, Tiffany was ready and willing to address the issue and communication was great. The floors were a bit dusty in places, but nothing was particularly dirty or unacceptable. In a world where you sometimes don't get what you pay for, we felt like this was a fair deal for us. The property definitely served its purpose, the bed was comfortable, water pressure was excellent, and everything seemed to be in good working order. For the price, I don't believe we could have done better and I would definitely recommend one of Tiffany's properties to someone if they were in the area looking for a more authentic New York City experience than simply staying in an overpriced hotel."
