I've stayed here before and thought it to be an average hotel in an out of the way neighborhood. Well, something must have happened, because the desk personnel have changed, they're young and lack any semblance of manners. Who knows why? Maybe the management is trying to cut costs. Perhaps there are some internal issues? Anyway, that's not my concern.... More

We stayed for three nights. We arrived at 3:00 pm on a Friday afternoon. There was limited street parking at that time. It was difficult to unload the car right on the street, not being able to pull over into a parking spot. The neighborhood looks a little sketchy due to graffiti and lots of trash on the street.

Stayed there on Tuesday, Aug. 18th. Checked in and was told, I would have to leave a $100 deposit on my card to insure I didn't damage the room. Never heard of this policy. Anyway, fine I let them charged to room in addition to the room charge. Got to my room, notice immediately the torn/rip blackout shades. Not a... More

"Verve" is a strange name for this place since it's in such a quiet, almost desolate area. There seem to be NO restaurants nearby, and I wasn't expecting that. Was very hungry, but also exhausted on a very hot summer day, so I wished there had at least been a delivery menu or two in the room. I was too... More

I stayed for 6 nights in this hotel and it was the best place for the price we payed. Very good service. The kids liked it too. It is near the subway where we can go to times square in 20 minutes. But there is not much to see in the hotel area. I recomend this hotel.

What really sets the Verve apart from other hotels is its amazing staff. Everyone who works here is friendly, helpful and goes out of his or her way to please. It was raining one morning - front desk found umbrellas for us to borrow. Another night, the front desk found a way to open my can of ravioli when my... More

This is a great value. Stayed two nights (July 31 an August 1) in double room with two teens. Staff were very pleasant and helpful in terms of suggestions for restaurants and directions to transportation. Rooms were perfectly fine. Breakfast buffet was carb heavy (cereal, bread/bagels, waffles) and also eggs and sausage. Would have benefitted from yogurt and granola options.... More

When we had lived in Astoria (a few avenues down from where the hotel is located) we had heard good reviews of this hotel, so when we came back for a funeral, we decided to stay here. The price was very good...the location convenient and they have a small garage where we parked our rental car for a reasonable price.... More

I stayed here for two nights whilst on a stop over in New York and was pleasantly surprised. It is a fairly basic hotel in terms of decor but for the price I thought it was good enough and I would definitely stay here again. Despite some of the other reviews on here I actually found all off the staff... More
