Spent three nights the last week of September. I can only so much verify the many, many previous positive posts regarding the great value of the Verve, Long Island City, Queens. Super clean room (with mini fridge), great bed, and nice common areas with the lobby and an outdoor deck with several grills and sitting areas. Excellent complimentary breakfast, and free coffee machine (wife loved the espresso).
It is located in a quiet location with a beautiful church on the corner. Our first afternoon there, we walked around for about four hours and much enjoyed the neighborhood. It’s eclectic…mid-Eastern, Brazilian, Italian. Found it completely safe at day or night. Very close access to major subway lines. 10 min walk to Queensboro Plaza stop and the 7 train which will have you in Times Square in 14 mins (timed it). The hotel has many recommendations and menus for delivery service. I highly recommend Mike’s Italian.
In terms of service, the hotel, while much larger, has the personal touch of a 15 room bed and breakfast, which we found so unexpected. The folks that work at front desk, and throughout the hotel, actually sincerely care about their guests, in every respect. At the front desk, they were so cordial and personable with providing info about anything. Subways, sights, restaurants..walking directions….on and on..absolutely never too busy to help, and always with a smile. Many thanks to Tom, the GM at Verve who sets the customer service standard at a high bar, Anthony, Justin, Yahira, and Valerie who made our short stay at your hotel so wonderful.
Many Thanks for a great stay!
