I paid more to get a city view, so I got the 16th floor, but I can't
say the view was breathtaking - you see mostly the building around and
lower Manhattan in the distance. This is not the hotel's fault of
course, since it's all based on the location, but just be wary, and
you should probably skip the extra fee.
About fees, know that you'll pay a LOT of taxes staying in Manhattan. The taxes accumulated to more than 25$ per night(!) so keep that in mind.
Except that, the hotel staff is not allowed to order a taxi for you since the hotel does not have a driveway. This is not a big issue though, since you can just go to the 6th Avenue which is literally 20 meters from the hotel and pick up a random taxi.
The location is really great, only about 10 blocks (approx 10-15 minutes
by foot) away from Penn station, so you can spare the expensive Taxi if
you arrive form Newark Airport (as I did), and you're a good walker.
Being located in Chelsea, there's lots of good stuff around.
The staff were nice and welcoming
