My Mother, sister, and I stayed in Charlene's apartment for four nights. It was the perfect location for our trip...one block away from all the restaurants in Hell's Kitchen...a very short walk to Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and even Central Park (if you don't mind a longer stroll). We ate a wonderful dinner and breakfast directly across the street at Patzeria (highly recommend dining there - delicious food, nice service, and family friendly). The apartment is located on the 3rd floor so keep that in mind if you have heavy luggage or have difficulty walking upstairs. The space itself is cozy and very comfortable. My only suggestion would be to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper and it is the weekend (lots of street noise from the bedroom facing 48th). Charlene was a great host, always responding to my texts within minutes. I would highly recommend staying at her apartment and look forward to coming back again one day!
