We didn't stay at the hotel. But we did go to the restaurant. AND WE LIKED IT.
Very relaxing and highly recommended.
Now THIS is a great place to have dinner and view the majestic New York skyline. It's kinda odd that you have to get out of Manhattan to see the full skyline, but you do.
Also, here you don't have to fight traffic and fight for a parking spot. If you wanna take the train, the hotel/restaurant is about five blocks away from the closest station. It's the first station across the East River. The hotel has a shuttle - you may want to call to ask the availability. (888) 291-3411.
They have some pricier menu options of course, but also have some reasonably-priced options too. We didn't experience any of the drama that some others have posted. We came for the view and the food and left happy. Though they don't own the view, I'll give them five stars for having the view. The bridge is very cool to see at night, also.
