Manhattan real estate has been on a diet in the last decade. Many new buildings have been going up, but the new structures are being built upon narrower and narrower plots. The custom-built Lord & Moris is one of these skinny minnies: a glass-and-steel structure with a pencil profile. It's trying to make up for its odd look with some pretentious touches, like the full-sized horse sculptures out front and the regal name. But the truth is this place is no more distinguished than the chain motels that are its neighbors. And that neighborhood is slightly grim, too, defined by the nearby Port Authority bus terminal that always bursts with commuters. Still, the hotel is brand new, and its rooms are slightly larger than the city norm, with cheery kelly green and white color schemes, good quality beds, and clean-lined tile bathrooms. Some rooms have family-friendly bunkbeds. Service is indifferent (i.e. not great). In high season, it charges far more than the rooms are worth (in the mid-$300s), but for the rest of the year its prices are more appropriate for what guests get.
