We booked this hotel as a family of four adults, so needed two rooms. Given we visited in Aug/Sep prices in Manhattan were beyond our budget so we looked further afield. We found this highly recommended and can agree with all of that. The hotel is brilliantly situated just a short walk from Queensboro Plaza subway station which has two lines running through it (7 and N/Q). Ideal for just a few stops to Times Square or Grand Central and just as importantly for the 7 Line which runs out to Flushing Meadow where we watched some of the US Open Tennis. So very very easy to get to anywhere we wanted to go sightseeing or shopping.
The hotel itself is pretty basic, but the rooms are clean, large and the beds huge and very comfortable. The breakfast buffet is worth having even though it is a bit limited in healthy choices. Fine if you like carbohydrates!! The gym is small but functional. The wifi is free throughout the hotel which was great for us and our boys.
The staff were polite and efficient but I have to say they were not overly welcoming and were not great at coming forward with ideas or assistance. But if you take the initiative and ask them, they are very helpful. Also it is worth requesting a room away from the road (ie a Manhattan view room) as the street outside is very busy in the morning rush hour, and watch out for garbage collection days!
