Aside from its proximity to so many popular restaurants, nightlife and shopping destinations in the midtown area this is not an ideal place to stay. The immediate area around the hotel is in a pretty unsafe area and there were a lot of people loitering in the parking lot. I can picture this being an option for someone whose on a really right budget and will only stay for a night but otherwise there are other options that won't break the bank and are nearby.

I wouldn’t really recommend this hotel. Even though it’s not in necessarily a bad neighborhood, I did not feel safe at the Stratford. There were plenty of people loitering outside the lobby, and the parking lot was full of garbage.
That level of cleanliness seemed to stretch inside the rest of the hotel as well. The lobby and rooms were musty and old, and the walls needed to be repainted.
Here’s the main sticking point with this hotel, though. It bills itself as an extended stay facility, but in the room I was in that only meant that there was a mini fridge and a microwave, pretty standard amenities in most decent hotels. There was no couch, no stove, and the room was no bigger than any other standard sized room. Don’t be fooled.
The best thing I can say about the Stratford was that the staff seemed friendly and welcoming, but their care didn’t seem to have any impact on the quality of the hotel.Recommended for:Budget Travelers
