Wife and I stayed 4 nights in early December primarily because of the good rates and easy access to manhattan. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The room was very clean and extremely quiet. Access to the subway is a short walk and could be in the city within 15 minutes. The breakfast was ok but nothing special. The only negative comment is the area around the hotel some reviews called industrial. During the day we felt quite safe but at night walking to the subway station and back felt a little creepy. Also, there are few restaurants in the local area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice stay without the outrageous rates in the city.
