My sister and I stayed here 8th to 11th December. We found the hotel to be great value for money compared to others in Manhattan. By staying further out of town we saved £200-300 and we just had to buy a subway pass for $30 to get us around New York. The rooms were a decent size with ample storage, a fridge and a safe. The beds were huge and so comfy. Even though we could see the trains passing by from our room, we didn't hear any noise at night. Having breakfast each morning was a bonus. There was a choice of cereal, toast, bagels, waffles and cooked items. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful when we wanted directions for Manhattan - special mention to the lovely Valerie. We found the area the hotel is situated in quite safe and there was a subway station either side - great for travelling to Manhattan or into Queens. Once in the city we loved Times Square, Bubba Gump's was great for a meal. We went to see Jersey Boys on Broadway - it was fantastic! We even did a horse and carriage ride around Central Park. All said and done this was a great value hotel for exploring New York. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and especially this city to anyone wanting a great fun-filled holiday.
