As hotels in New York City are mostly unaffordable, I went for this hotel in Long Island City, just across the East River from Manhattan. It is very conveniently located in the vicinity of three subway stations, which enables guests to choose from a variety of different trains and directions.
The staff is very helpful and friendly, and even the hotel manager is around most of the time and welcomes guests during breakfast. Breakfast is complimentary, so I probably should not complain, but I really missed some muffins and yogurt.
I had asked for a room on a higher floor with a city view, but we got one on the third floor with no particular view, which was a little disappointing. The beds and pillows are ok, but look a little worn. Two of the drawers of our dresser kept sliding out, so I guess the floor was a little uneven. We had to place a suitcase in front of them.
We could store our bags for $ 1 each, which was very convenient because we did not have to be at the airport until the evening.
