While searching for a hotel for a week in NYC, I came across rentals and found Milton. And what a find he was! My husband and I stayed at his lovely brownstone while visiting our daughter who is at Columbia University. He is delightful and so willing to help make a visit perfect in every way possible.
Since we arrived late in the evening, we especially appreciated the quart of milk in the fridge the next morning, as well as the other goodies that he provided for us. We did not cook a lot but found that everything we needed (and a lot more) was provided when we did. The bed and bath linens are fresh and clean, the bed very comfortable, plenty of storage space to unpack during your stay, and fluffy towels were replaced several times during our stay.
The location was very convenient for us, both to Columbia and to the Metro stop. Taxis were easily hailed, too. For those of you wondering about staying in Harlem, we felt very safe walking, even in the evenings, along 125th and 126th Sts. and to the University.
I would definitely stay here again, regardless of what part of Manhattan I wanted to visit during the day. Especially for more than a day or so, having the kitchen and living space is so much nicer than being in a small, expensive hotel room. And besides, Milton's warm welcome made us feel like family! There are not enough stars on this review to adequate describe how much we enjoyed our stay.
