Was really happy for a suites hotel to open in this area, it was much needed. Brand new hotel, less than a month old so everything was new, fresh, clean. No inserting of the slot type room key, but it's the wave key technology which was great if you were holding things in your hand. If you're using one of the side doors to get into the hotel it has good security where you have to wave the key to open the door.
Had the 1 bedroom suite (2 queen beds and one double pull out couch) which included a full kitchen, dishes, a basket of tea, popcorn, sugar and other condiments you may need. Had 2 flat screens, one in the bedroom. Lots of mirrors. There's a full length in the living room area, there's also one over the work station desk in the bedroom. The sink and mirror is separate from the toilet and shower, so 2 people can get ready at the same time.
The beds and pillows were so comfortable, the blinds trap out all the sun. Had no idea it was even daytime. Full satellite tv including premium channels like HBO.
Every morning from 7-10 was complimentary hot breakfast. There was a waffle station to make you own waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits, oatmeal. There's also 4 types of coffee/tea fresh mad, lots of fruit, cereal, pastries, toast. It was a great breakfast. They also have complimentary dinner during the week, but didn't make it in time to try that out.
Hot tub and pool are together and was great, lounge chairs inside and the pool was warm. Only issue I had with that is that the pool closes at 10pm, for a suites hotel that has extended stay I think it should be like the gym and be 24 hours.
So keep that on you at all times. The gym is 24 hours and that also is great, tv's and new machines. Gym and pool needs the room key access, so keep the key with you at all times. There's a putting green and also bbq's in the courtyard if you want to grill your own food.
Minutes from the massive Rosevelt Field shopping mall. Near restaurants like Grand Luxe, near the highways, about 25 mins to JFK depending on traffic. This is for sure my new go-to hotel when I'm in the area.
