Water was turned off the day we arrived, leaving us to hand fill the toilet water tank to enable it to flush. Shower pressure was very poor during whole stay (4 nights). On the plus side, the price was amazing for the location! Great connections for subway. Would stay here again.

Our room was a bit "run down" (carpet, bath tub), but still fit-for-purpose. ;-) Oh, and all the construction work going on next door went on until around midnight, so noise level was rather high...

Fabulous location! Subway is just a little walk up the street. Our room had a small fridge, safe and a little closet. There was an extra pillow and blanket in the closet. We had a little window that opened to a brick wall, but we were able to get some outside air. Shower didn't have hot water one morning but we overheard the manager on the phone demanding the repair people come immediately. Bar had drink specials at pm and there was a generic hostel breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

If you are looking for a very good location (times square): this is the place. However, for 2 days there was no hot water to take a shower (it is cold now -- beginning of April). Advice from the clerk was to SPEND water for 15 minutes and wait for the hot water from the boiler (there was almost 30 and nothing). I have read in a previous post this hot water problem is frequent, and I can confirm now, and it seems they don't want to solve.

Great location. Clean room. Cheapest place in the center of Times Square!

My stay at Equity Point was great. The room was clean and warm, it was in a fantastic location, and the staff was very helpful with any questions I had. The fact that there was a free breakfast and unlimited wifi was a huge bonus. My only issue was that I had to let the hot water run for about 10 minutes before it was warm enough to shower in. Overall, a great experience.
