"Our Guests Say It Best"

  • Great Location
    This is our favorite place to stay in NYC! Each year, we stay here for a week during Thanksgiving. The rooms are clean. The view is great. It's close to what we love about New York. It's just our place!

  • Great room, great hotel!
    This hotel is a gem, located at the center of China Town, at the base of the Manhattan Bridge. The hotel itself is exactly what every hotel should be - clean, quiet and comfortable.

  • Quiet and comfortable
    Stayed here for 2 nights. Had a room overlooking the Manhattan Bridge that had a very nice window seat. Comfortable beds. Receptionists were very friendly and helpful.

  • Excellent price and experience
    The staff were lovely - they stored our bags for us while our room was being cleaned. Excellent location - right across from the Manhattan bridge, right next to SOHO, easy subway access to everywhere in the city.

  • Roomy and clean, with a fun vibe
    I was in NYC for work, and chose the Leon because it was in walking distance to the financial district and was very affordable. I stayed on the second floor, and had a lovely view of the bridge. I would absolutely go back!
