Stayed here from around the 25th Oct to early November for 10 nights and was quite pleased with the overall service. The shuttle from JFK was quite convenient. The front desk staff were a little blunt but always friendly and informative. The room was fine, it was a twin room w/ en-suite and cleaned everyday. No complaints there. Didn't like the pillows though, found them a little uncomfortable.
Ate in the restuarant 3-4 times over the 10 days and quality was always good, service was a tad slow. Getting to NYC was convenient with the Subway less than 10 mins away and Manhattan about 30 mins away depending on where you're going. I think its even quicker if you get one of the direct lines.
Hotel is about 10 mins walk from Queens shopping centre which has a Macy's as well as other shops so that was a big plus!
We did however experience Hurricane Sandy during our visit and that shut the Subway down for 3-4 days. This meant we had to walk to Manhattan from the hotel which is about 6 miles! Had to walk there twice and walk back once because as soon as the subway was fixed, the city ran out of gas for the cars and taxis! But if you like your walking (which I do) this should take you about 1.5 to 2.5 hours if you use the Queenboro bridge!
All in all I was happy with this hotel and would stay there again. Good quality for the price paid!
