Totally new hotel worthy of the boutique label
The Franklin has been totally remodeled.We have stayed there several times before and our reviews were always 4 or 5, we stay at this hotel due to close proximity of family. The staff is great and now the rooms are also! The rooms are typical Manhattan smallish rooms the dimensions are listed on the site. Now we will happily stay there when we visit family.

It’s charming, clean and walking distance to everything. I enjoyed my stay there.
Mercedes, us2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Our room was pretty tight quarters, but very clean. We were visiting family, who live close to this hotel, so it was extremely convenient - so, the size of the room didn't matter that much because we were at our family's residence most of the time. The bed was comfortable and it was very quiet. All of the staff were most friendly and helpful!

Very nice
Hotel has had a total makeover and it shows. Everything is new. Small bedroom. Will definitely return.

Could be cute boutique hotel. Not there yet
No temp control for heat. Very hot steam pipe in bathroom. Phone in room did not work. Limited cable stations. Bed was comfortable. Hallway bright and clean. Pigeons nested at window cooing at odd times in the night.
Duane, us2 night business trip
Good 6.0
An old-fashioned experience
My partner needed a hotel reasonably close to her job interview and this was selected. I did not realize how old the hotel was until I had arrived but I committed due to how late it was. Some of the paint along the hallways were chipped and the elevator was kind of intimidating due to how old it felt. Pros 1.) Extremely close to the subway. Easily allows you to commute from one part of the city to the other. 2.) The employees were polite and accommodating during our stay (we arrived extremely late and beyond the regular check-in time) 3.) Extremely warm. This may be a negative for others but I love the heat due to how cold I get. Cons 1.) Very, very small rooms. The restroom did not have a sink actually in it. The sink was a part of the bedroom. The shower was rather small as well and extremely close to the toilet. 2.) Pricing. The room was considerably more expensive than other options closer to Penn Station even though the quality of the rooms seem to be much lower.

I don’t mind that the hotel is small, but dirty carpets and peeling paint is unacceptable. You should also consider offering coffee in the lobby since you don’t have any amenities. The televisions are terrible and it’s in numerous rooms as my husband had stayed before. It takes a long time to tune up and offers no news stations.
Rosana, us2 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Booked for two nights but my husband had emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery and we had to cancel. Hotel was uncooperative about letting us rebook for another date. We forfeited our payment for the stay. Jet Blue was super nice and let us bank our flight cost and use at a future date.

Fair 4.0
Too little for too much
Closet door obstructed from opening all the way. Bathroom too narrow to stand over sink. Didn’t offer to bring checked bags to the room.
