We had stayed here the week they opened in 2008 and returned this week for five days. The hotel is located closed to the subway and the 59th street bridge; so easy access to mid-Manhattan. Rooms are nice sized and ensuite. Comfortable beds; clean; friendly/helpful staff. If driving, they have indoor parking for $25/night; a bargain in NYC. We paid... More

I stayed at the Verve twice (for a total of almost a week) last October and will be returning this February for two visits. The desk staff are friendly and knowledgable, and the hotel is very comfortable. The hot breakfast is quite good with eggs varied by the day and excellent coffee. The location may seem "distant" from Manhattan for... More

Good location. Very close to subway at Queens plaza. Not to be mistaken for queensbough plaza a mistake we made on the first night. Quite a walk and confusing in the dark! Good hotel with excellent amenities. A little outdated decor so could do with an upgrade but excellent service, good breakfast, well informed check in desk, friendly staff and... More

We had reservations for New Years Eve night and tried canceling 24 hours in advance. I was informed that there was a 48 hour cancelation notice needed and said they couldn't cancel my room. We were not informed of a 48 hour cancelation notice and we never received an email with our confirmation because they spelt our name wrong after... More

Although not in Manhatten, this is truely great value. Only two subway stops from the centre of New York. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the complementary breakfast is very filling and varied. A great place to save money and then spend it on seeing Braodway shows.

This hotel has it all. Living in New Jersey we tend not to take over night stays in New York City but the location and price of this hotel made it too good an opportunity to pass up. The hotel was clean and as advertised. The staff could not have been more friendly, caring and helpful - especially in assisting... More

We had friends nearby and were unable to stay with them one evening, so we walked up the street to see if they had a room. They said they did and quoted a price. The front desk guy (perhaps new in the role), phoned someone else to say he had someone that wanted to book a room. From their conversation,... More

Great hotel in a quiet neighborhood just outside of Queensboro Plaza. My girlfriend and I went down for a holiday weekend in the city and we stayed at the Verve because of its good price (nearly half of what you would spend for a comparable room in Manhatten) and its proximity to the metro, which is a quick two-block walk...
