Right off Stuyvesant Sq, this popular, eight-floor townhouse is where Woody Allen shot a frightening dead-body scene for his film Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993). The 120 rooms are small and basic, with old-school chintzy furnishings and a lack of natural light, and only four have private bathrooms (but all are free of dead bodies).
If this place is booked, ask about its sister property in Midtown, Hotel 31.
Hotel 17 offers individually decorated rooms with cable TV and daily maid service. A shared bathroom, hairdryers and ironing facilities are available.
The front desk is open at all times to help guests with needs or to offer advice on the city. A 24-hour doorman is also posted at the hotel.
The 17 is 6 minutes' walk from Union Square and a half mile from the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace.
