I've stayed in this hotel 4 times in the last 2 years and will keep coming back for the fact that this hotel has the whole package. It 's a decent hotel in any possible way, constantly thinking about ways how to keep it's guests happy. Not only through obvious things like a good free breakfast and (sometimes shaky) wi-fi, but also for instance free use of washing machine.
Rooms are clean and fairly big for NYC criteria. Vending machines and ice machines in the hallways.
The hotel is a 15 minute subway ride away from Times Sq. (3 different subway stations around the corner) and is situated in an industrial area, which still offers some decent restaurants if you walk couple of blocks north towards Astoria. Parking your car in the street is free. Movie theatre is a couple of blocks away.
All in all a good value for a nice hotel just outside Manhattan.
