“Great choice for staying in new york”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

The hotel is brand new. Neighbourhood doesn't look great, but it's safe. It's a good place to stay when you travel to NY, because prices are lower than manhattan. Subway is just a block away and after 3 stops you're on madison avenue! Very helpfull and nice staff. Rooms are spacious with large windows, and if you get a room on the good side, the view on the city is really amazing, especially by night! Excellent free wifi in all the hotel. Continental breakfast is ok, but if want to go "large" you can have whatever you want!
No good restaurants next to the hotel, so have a bite in the city! If you want to rent a car you'll find a enterprise rent a car a few blocks away..

The hotel is clean and a great location if you're looking to save some money and not stay directly in the city. There is a subway stop that takes you into Grand Central, so very easy access. The hotel itself is clean and quiet with ample room and the breakfasts were good. Lots of food for a great price. NY and its boroughs are not easy to navigate, and that includes LI City. Don't trust mapquest, google or your car's navigation. They are not up to speed on the barricades that close off streets. There's lots of construction going on; probably best to call the hotel to get directions if you're driving. And if you're driving, be careful, because they don't have much parking at all. I ended up missing the turn, found myself on the Queensboro bridge and had to drive into the city. I was meeting friends, so I opted to leave the car in Manhattan with all of us driving back to the hotel later. After much confusion with the navigation system, we finally found the hotel around midnight, but no parking. We were told to "park on the street, if we could find it." As this is an up-and-coming area, the streets don't look the safest, but they really are. We ended up parking in a sketchy lot with cabs a few blocks away and wondered if the car would be there the next day. It was, so it's more the case of "don't judge a book by it's cover." The hotel is a great, clean find if you can find it and you're comfortable moving in and out of the city via subway. I'd suggest you take a cab there. I'd also like to see the hotel work out arrangements so the guests would feel comfortable leaving their car off-property with something more than a "park on the street if you can find it" answer.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the great review of our hotel. Our location is convenient to the subway/train and in just a few short mintues you can be experiencing all that NYC and Manhattan has to offer, without paying the higher hotel prices. You are correct in regards to the Long Island City area in that it is quickly evolving into a great new neighborhood for everyone to enjoy. However, in doing so there are some minor adjustments necessary in order to drive around the area. By all means, we ask that anyone needing assistance with directions, please call the hotel directly.

There is limited parking at the hotel, on a "first come, first serve" basis. There are indoor and outdoor secured lots next door and just a block away. The exterior lot that you used is fenced and has a 24-hour security service.

Thank you again for the great review and we look forward to seeing you again should you return to NYC.

Nice hotel - very clean and nice large rooms; some with balconies. The service is also very nice and accommodating. The location could be a little better it's really just 2 stops away from Manhattan.

Everything about this home from a home is superb. The helpful frontdesk, decor, services, including free internet, all combine to give you a sense of being looked after and appreciated. Only issue is the location in a traffic-jammed approach. So if you are to catch a flight, start early. But I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Book early

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your nice review. Our location is in a up-and-coming neighborhood. There is a lot of construction with new buildings and roadways which at times does make travel by car somewhat frustrating, but once you arrive you will welcomed by our courteous staff and your traffic troubles will be forgotten. Long Island City is the new rage as far as communities in the NYC area and it has come a very long way in a few years. Most of the road construction has been completed and travel is easier now than in previous years.

Thanks again for the kind review and we look forward to seeing when you return.
