Nope, the little furry friend is not free. There is a card that says that it is just to keep you company while you stay in the room. If you want it to follow you home, you will have to purchase it!
There is a kitchenette complete with a microwave oven, a standard size fridge instead of just a mini bar, pots for cooking, plates and bowls, forks and spoons.
The hotel even provided a dish washing soap and wash cloth. It’s more like an apartment than a hotel. So, definitely I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to New York, all the more so because it is located strategically in the busiest part of New York!
After checking into the hotel, I met up with Dato’ Noraini, Azezee, Fauwaz and Mumtazah for dinner. We ate at a nearby halal restaurant on 29th Street. I forgot the name and I forgot to snap a photo of the place. :(
