The hotel is situated in Long Island City, Queens, few minutes on foot away from 3 metro stations that transport you everywhere in New York City, especially Manhattan, within relatively few minutes. Our suite was more spacious than most hotel rooms in Manhattan at a cheaper price level. Hence, more and more hotels are being constructed in Long Island City, which is an area in transition.
Few minutes away from the hotel you will find a supermarket and a nice Deli called "Zante".
The hotel is clean and offers wifi - free of charge.
A great plus of the hotel is the great staff, well trained, professional and very friendly. They offer good advice for city trips and all questions that might arise. Big thanks and many greets from Germany to the whole staff, especially Justin, who patiently answered all my questions before my trip to New York.
Check-in could have been a little bit more attentive (no question about the journey). However, check-out was super-friendly and cordial.
My request for a room with city view was fullfilled.
Breakfast is included in the price. It consists of breakfast Amerian style which gets pretty monotonous after one week. Dishes consist of plastic. Sub-optimal for the environment.
Breakfast is removed punctually at 9.30 am each morning.
There exists a machine where you get hot beverages all day long for free.
The room was big, clean and a little dark. There even existed a coffee machine. The room had an air conditioner and a safe.
I highly recommend this great hotel.
- Metro card for 1 week. The metro is a fascinating place for social studies.
- Hop-on-Bus to get an overal impression of NYC.
- Amtrak train trip to Washington.
Hotel stay in May 2013.
