This is an OK Hotel in an emerging fringe neighborhood of Long Island City...Steps from the R train elevated on an industrial corridor bordering the old Saint Patricks neighborhood.The hotel itself is 2 to 3 stars...clean,well maintained,secure....decent breakfast and fresh coffee all day.
I personally experienced an incident (Of which I was at fault) in which I was berated,deflated,and excoriated by a manager who would have been perfect for the gestapo.
An employee of his,..TOM,....intervened to handle the problem professionally.courteously and humanistically...and literally,saved the day (and the night for me)....He is the true management material there-isn't it funny how that happens?
So i give the hotel 2 to 3 stars at best with added bonus for Tom,,,,a 5 star kind of guy.
I hope upper management reads this review...(I just might alert them to it).... Tom deserves to be praised for his excellent service to the hotel.He is truly an asset.
