Sadly a very slow elevator but it always got there :)
Location and friendly staff.
Shower/bathroom outside the room.
Business centre with internet; Great location and seconds from Union Square which is a hub of activity and multiple MTA lines and also right at an express subway stop; Supermarket one block away and all the restaurant food options you can think of within walking distance; Excellent fridge which isn't any louder than it needs to be; Windows you can open partially; good A/C; Have stayed here before and would stay there again.
The WiFi was everywhere from spotty to poor and in fact at times only worked when I was in the very corner of the room low to the door!! Other times, there seemed to be less of an issue just using it at the table - It was frustrating. (Based on past experience, this is not the case in every room, but in this room it sadly very much was) The lounge (one floor above lobby) was there to serve as a quality backup, but in a perfect world every room should have the same quality of WiFi. Much smaller issue was not having hand towels (just regular sized towels of which there were plenty, :) thank you); Note; Some sort of renovation going on across the street presently, so I recommend earplugs.
Tucked away in the Union Square neighborhood of New York City, Seafarers International House is a harbor of hospitality, conveniently located one block away from major subway lines. Rooms are extended to seafarers, international and domestic travelers, and church groups, as well as students and clergy. The rooms are simple, clean, safe, and available for short stays at a modest cost with helpful staff available 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
Though Seafarers International House’s Nordgren Chapel is a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, all religions and denominations are welcome to stay. Rooms are clean and tidy with a touch of personal charm and the hotel features amenities such as air conditioning, makeup service, cable television, telephone, free WiFi in public spaces, coffee, laundry service, private or shared bathrooms, ice and vending machines, and computers available for use. All beds are single beds, with a maximum room occupancy of two people.
Seafarers International House was founded in 1873 by the Augustana Lutheran Church as a mission to Swedish seafaring people in the Port of New York. Shortly thereafter, its prime goal was to serve as a mission to both Swedish seafarers immigrants. In 1987, Seafarers International House became an affiliated mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. By staying here, the room revenue from each guest’s stay helps to support their mission of caring for seafarers and migrants who are often at sea for months and thereby put at risk of depression, abuse, piracy, and accidents.
