We stayed in this hotel for 14 nights and visited Manhattan every day by ferry. The hotel had a complimentary shuttle to the ferry, both this shuttle and the ferry (which took about 8 minutes to midtown Manhattan) were very convenient. The hotel was excellent. Quiet, very kind staff, clean and spacious suites, complimentary hot breakfast and weekday dinner + 24 hrs. free coffee and tea in the lobby. Great view of the Manhattan skyline from the hotel. Nice restaurants and shops nearby. Free internet service.
