Last minute stay, success!!

This apartment worked great for a quick business trip to NYC. We stayed in the Sol suite. Even though I was booking day of, Sudha got back to me within 10 minutes with a special deal and left great instructions for our late check-in (including a recommendation for amazing thai food up the street). The location was perfect – we had meetings in Brooklyn and Midtown and there were multiple subway lines just blocks away. Also the East Village provides for a lot of great night-life and restaurants once we wrapped meetings and our apartment was less than 10 minutes walking from both East Village and Soho. Despite there being an awesome Irish bar across the street, our apartment was perfectly quiet. The water pressure in the shower was amazing and there is a full washer/drier & full kitchen- which if we had a longer stay would have been very helpful. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet spot in the middle of one of New York’s trendiest neighborhoods. Thanks for the great stay, Sudha! Looking forward to returning.
