“nice for NEW YORK CITY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This Fairfield is in LONG ISLAND CITY.It has a shuttle to the subway for a short subway trip to Manhattan. The rooms were clean and they give a free breakfast. We stayed 2 days and the breakfast was packed with people with not enough seats for everyone. One would have thought there was a food shortage. If you have a car , parking can be tough. They have a heated garage; however, with maybe 15 spots. Otherwise , a nice stay and reasonably priced .

Thank you for your review of our hotel. Our goal is to provide every guest with the service that makes you want to return. Unfortunately parking is limited but our staff will do thier best in assiting you to find a space in or around the hotel. In the summer we defintiely have more seating options in the breakfast area unfortunately during the cold season we can only utilize the space that's enclosed. We hope that on your next trip to NYC you will come and visit us again.

Although my credit card was over charged once and I had to claim to the front desk as well as Marriott customer service since I their Gold Member, I can say it's worthy stay with the hotel. The hotel staff, all of them whom I have met including the shuttle driver, receptionist, breafast service..are all great. My wife and I enjoyed the stay here.

The only weak point of the hotel is payment process. I saw a post here from a Platinum member said he was over charged and then myself experiencec it so I believe the payment should be improved.

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. Our goal is to provide every guest with the service that makes you want to return. We are pleased that you and your wife enjoyed your stay despite the billing error. In most cases your credit card is authorized an extra $ amount for incidentals which will eventually go back to your credit card after you check out, I am not sure if this was the issue you experienced however this is the most common one with regards to billing. We hope that on your next trip to NYC you will come and visit us again.

I have stayed at this location several times. It's perhaps one if the best places to stay when visiting the city. It's minutes away from Times Square by train and the hotel has a shuttle to the train station if you need it.
If you get a room with a view of the city, you will love to wake up and seeing the city outside of your window.
This hotel is very clean. Not a whole lot around, but everything you need is close by.
There is a Spanish food restaurant right next to it and other restaurants deliver.
I have always found this hotel to be affordable. I prefer to stay here over any other location in Manhattan. They also have limited parking, but you can find street parking easily!

We stayed in this hotel in December and we loved it. Everyone was nice and helpful, no matter what you need they'll do their best to get you satisfied. Breakfast was great, they got everything you need to start your day right in the city that never sleeps. Rooms are clean and very nice. Only thing we didn't like was the heater, either your room is hot as hell or cold! It takes 10 mins to get to subway station on 33rd street heading to 42nd street/ Times Square ( 15 mins ride). Queens is a nice neighborhood, it's not like a ghetto anymore. We loved everything about this hotel!

We arrived right after a snowstorm, so parking was a challenge - but it was free. The hotel seemed to be full (perhaps some flights were cancelled.) The room was small (just as portrayed in photo though) but the bed was very comfortable. It had just what we needed. The free breakfast was good - I really enjoyed the fresh fruit salad. The front desk folks seemed very nice. All was good but unfortunately one of the two elevators broke during our stay and that made for a long wait. We only paid $99 per night - so that was terrific - but we were staying during an off-season time in NYC. If we could get the same or similar rate, I'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a Manhattan view room if that is important to you. We had a nice view of the cemetery.

after previous hotel plans for new years fell through we were scrambling to find a good, safe, affordable place and we found it! free hot breakfast, the staff were very polite and helpful and while not directly on a subway route (the 7 gets you right to grand central and time square) there is a shuttle that runs from 6am -1045pm which gets you there. if you miss it its a easy 10-15minute walk back. not a lot of parking but a large percent seem to be international visitors who flew in so it wouldn't be a issue for them. will most likely stay here again since it was a great price, great service and quiet, probably cant be beaten

My wife and I really enjoyed staying here. The room was very clean, including the bathroom (end that's our top concern when staying anywhere). The shuttle to the metro station and restaurants nearby is also very convenient. On our first night we missed the last shuttle back to the hotel (it was around 11 PM) so we decided to walk back, and we did not fell unsafe. It was a 10-minute walk. The complementary breakfast was great! We would definitely recommend it to our friends
