    The location was great. Many bars and restaurants, short walk to Central Park.

    The room was very small with a queen sized bed. No sink in the bathroom was slightly inconvenient. Our room's smoke detector ran out of battery and the constant "beeping" kept us up all morning.

    The staff was extremely friendly and the location was excellent for our purposes.

    The room was a little small, but it was extremely well organized and we didn't spend much time in the room so it didn't matter.

    This was a very nice boutique hotel, with great access to museum mile and the express subway line. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was kind and extremely helpful.

    Unfortunately, the window a.c. unit, being right next to the bed, was loud and made sleeping a challenge. The bathroom would benefit from a fan, and the Wi-Fi never really worked in our room.

    This was our second stay at the Franklin. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful during each visit. We spend most of our time in art museums, so the hotel is very convenient to many of our attractions. We also love Central Park, which is very close. It's convenient to a subway stop that serves 3 lines, so you can get anywhere fairly conveniently. There are enough places to eat nearby unless you go for the extravagant, "I ate at ...." bragging. Drug stores are handy. It's a very safe area. There is little typical "night life," which is fine with us. We would certainly stay there again.

    Rooms are tiny. Reminded us of some of the places we've stayed in Europe. Not much space for luggage, clothes, etc. We were there in summer both times; air conditioners were noisy, and in one room blew cold air on our heads while we were in bed. We solved that problem by lying with heads at foot of bed. Bathrooms hard to maneuver in but had all the essentials. No channel list for TV and reception was of variable quality on our second visit. Of course, no refrigerator. Breakfast was OK (bread, cheese, jelly, yogurt, apples, oranges, juices, coffee, cereal) but I've had better. Fortunately, we were rarely in the room except to sleep.

    Being 6'5" tall I found this place very small. Did I say TINY. The bathroom sink was in a 20" wide 2' deep niche that my 5'5" 115 lb wife could not reach. Did I mention the lack of food at the "breakfest" area? Avoid unless you are vertically challenged.

    Love the beds and the amenities. Even though small, the rooms feel luxurious.

    The internet was so slow that it was virtually impossible to send e-mails. As an independent consultant, this is a serious drawback for me and will cause me to reconsider whether I stay at the Franklin the next time I am in NYC.

    The evening wine and cheese was a lovely touch

    The very loud and clunky air conditioner was the only way to get fresh air in the room and made it difficult to sleep.

    Closeness to Central Park. Good restaurants nearby.

    Staff didn't reply to our emails prior to our stay, even if just to say they couldn't help or advise. Also upon our return to the hotel one evening (before 11pm) the reception staff member was watching something via the computer screen which very loudly had explicit vocabulary. Rather unprofessional!!!

    We liked the location as it was away from the buzz of Time Square, there were nice places to eat around that area. You could walk along to Central Park which was lovely. There was also a subway station one block away. We found the staff very nice, not that we spent much time in the Hotel as it was our first visit to NYC, therefore we were out sightseeing all day. I would choose the Franklin if we return to NYC in the future. Also the breakfast was nice, just enough to start your day. C & K Glasgow, Scotland

    We loved this charming little hotel and the staff! Extremely clean and decorated beautifully! Like staying at a B&B right in downtown Manhattan! We highly recommend this hotel and definitely will stay here again whenever we visit the city!

    location is great -- steps from 6 train

    check-in took over 20 min and there was only one person in line! when I finally did get checked in, the guy had given me someone else's room by mistake and he had to reverse that transaction and start all over

    Front desk staff helpful and kind. Appreciated the tea and the cheese and wine tasting in the afternoon, and the wifi. Good position in a safea area, close to the subway and at a walking distance from the Guggenheim and the Met.

    Very superficial cleaning in my opinion, sorry. Found a lot of dust on the packed food on the tray in the room, and hair on a pastry at breakfast. No support to lay your suitcase in the room. Not even enough space to hang your coat in the smallest rooms. Bed sheets were torn in at least one point. I am sure the hotel is not too expensive for New York City standards, however I would have liked at least a better cleanliness and for me it is pricey for what it offers.
