This is a good hotel to use outside of manhattan. The additional benefit of breakfast being included in the price is good, the down side of this, as the title suggests, is that every piece of cutlery and all plates and cups/beakers are plastic.
The staff are very attentive, all are very willing to help in whatever way they can. A real plus point is that there is a drinks machine serving Coffee, Hot Chocolate and hot water for Tea, available 24 hrs a day. Also there is a cold water machine, which is great for replenishing water bottles, which are a must for "Discovering" New York.
The hotel is just a 5 min walk from the nearest subway station, (39th Ave on the N and Q lines), and the best bargain in New York is the $30 - 7 day unlimited travel pass on the Metro, which also includes the buses. From the hotel you can be in central Manhattan or Central Park within 15 mins on the subway.
The hotel rooms are good, if a little noisy, given that this is a working neighbourhood, not a residential district. This could be said to be a minus point, as this neighbourhood leaves a little to be desired!
