Comfort Inn Manhattan Bridge Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York City

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Chinatown location near downtown dining and drinking
  • Lower room prices than many downtown hotels
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout property
  • Free breakfast daily
  • East River views from some top floors
  • Close to the subway and Manhattan Bridge (possible to bike to Brooklyn!)
  • Citi Bike station across the street
  • Hotel is pet-friendly, for a fee
  • Bright lobby with free newspapers

Cons

  • Some furniture shows wear and tear
  • Wi-Fi can be spotty in areas
  • On-site parking is expensive
  • Lacking a restaurant and fitness center

Bottom Line

This Comfort Inn is simple value option with modern decor and few features. Basic but clean rooms are a good price for the location and within walking distance of many downtown locations. The excellent Chinese restaurants and knock-off stores of Chinatown are literally at your doorstop; Little Italy is also around the corner for dining options galore. Guests can walk to the Grand Street subway or bike to Brooklyn using the Citi Bike station across the street, via the Manhattan Bridge. Just avoid parking the car if possible -- daily rates are astronomical. It's also worth considering the nearby Best Western Bowery Hanbee Hotel, which the local owners also run.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A nice but narrow lobby with free newspapers

There’s not much happening on the main level of the hotel, but the small lobby is clean and bright with a few seating areas for reading a newspaper. The most action the lobby sees is during the free breakfast. Otherwise this hotel is merely a place to rest and shower. Staff members of this family-run franchise can offer local suggestions.

 Location

In the center of Chinatown

The location of this franchised property is what makes it cool and unique, as Chinatown and Little Italy are both immediately nearby. Soup Dumplings? Check. Veal Parmigiana? Check. Manhattan Bridge and bike bath to Brooklyn? Check. Trendy Lower East Side restaurants can be found within blocks, and the hotel is within walking distance of the famous boutiques in SoHo. The B and D trains are just over a block away.

 Rooms

Clean rooms with a little wear and tear

Though some furniture is showing age, the owners have kept the property feeling fresh with updated linens (light brown comforters with red throws) and modern bathrooms. Wi-Fi is free throughout and all rooms have a work desk. Pets are welcome for a fee. Rooms come with a standard queen bed, two double beds, or a loft-style queen which has a separate seating area above, with views over the East River.

 Features

Basic features such as free breakfast and Wi-Fi

This is a simple hotel with simple features. The hearty (and free!) breakfast in the clean, modern lobby includes hot and cold items, add Wi-Fi is also free, adding to the hotel's value. The hotel does not have a bar or full-service restaurant on-site, but guests will find plenty of options nearby for both dining and nightlife. Pets are welcome for a daily fee.

 Bottom Line
