We took this hotel as an alternative to staying in downtown Manhattan. While it is literally five minutes over the bridge, if you plan on driving, that could take you an hour or more during peak traffic times. The plus is the 2 minute walk to the subway : )
We got a 'SUITE'..... we had another traveler staying with us and thought...... well, no matter what we thought, we found a standard room, with one of the beds moved out and a loveseat moved in.... NO extra room at all, and the mattress on the pullout was so thin that our extra traveler just slept on the loveseat with her legs up on the arms!
So, THAT being said, the room was not a SUITE by any stretch, and they were completely booked, so we couldn't get a different room with another bed.
The room was clean, and the staff was really wonderful. They didn't get exasperated with constant requests for directions, etc., and over all were very helpful.
