Stayed there November 2012 for 2 nights.
I am a single mature woman and chose this hotel on arrival in N.Y.because of the closeness to La Guardia.No shuttle bus operates to the hotel so I took a taxi $18.from airport.
There is nothing in the area,...opposite the hotel front a large storage ware house, behind a powerstation.Busy noisy road. Next block is the largest public(council) housing estate in USA( reliable information from council employee).When I arrived staff on duty were very unprofessional, I got the impresion they had been called in just to cover weekend shift.
A few undesirable looking characters sitting in lobby.Only 1 liftworking.
Good breakfast, which was needed as there were no places nearby to get a breakfast except small Subway shop.
2 blocks from subway train to Manhattan
Clean bed and bathroom
Expensive considering area ( and I had Seniors rate)
Public areas carpets looked dirty needed hoovering
Considering this is supposed to be a new hotel I don't think double glazing was efficient,room cold and noisy
3 x 40 watt table lamps in room,no main light difficult to see, maybe to hide dirt on room carpet.
Duvet so thin I had to double it to be warm,couldn't get heat from air conditioning
Not a safe area to be out alone after dark,when I was there the F line subway nearby was closed over the weekend for repairs.I had booked for 4 nights but was glad I reduced it to 2 nights.
This area of Queens has nothing of interest, you could get somewhere better to stay in Manhattan for similiar price.
