    Good Value
    What you see in the photos is what you get. For this price, I found this to be a decent hotel in a good area. The room was clean but by no means luxurious, although the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Overall, I would stay here again.

    Hey Sherlock! Stay at the Watson!
    I’ve stayed at the Watson a few times and have always been pleased with it. Cal at the front desk made me feel very welcome. The location is great because it’s close to everything but not in the heart of the hustle and bustle. Easy access to subways. Close to Central Park. Rooms are dated but good space and amenities for the price and always clean.
