We checked out yesterday following a 7 day stay. The staff were all quite friendly which unfortunately isn't typical of NYC. It's location is a huge plus, within walking distance to 2 subways. It's in an industrial/ commercial area, not a tourist's area in the least but we never felt unsafe. We opted to park on the streets and save on the $25/day hotel parking rate and we never had a problem with our car being bothered. Although we had a car we walked to various eateries, there's a park with splash pad 2 blocks away we enjoyed a couple times. Going to Manhattan took only mins via the Queensboro Bridge and Brooklyn the Pulaski Bridge. We had the king suite which has a sleeper sofa and the room was quite spacious. Our bed was so comfortable but oddly enough the pillows were small and weird. The rooms are modestly decorated and have been updated. Shower was great, good water pressure and a pulsating showerhead . The elevators are extremely slow and rather small. Didn't care for the breakfast too much, it was odd that they offered eggs but no meat of any kind and no waffles. It was like a carb-fest...bagels, pancakes, toast, muffins, oatmeal packets, donuts, etc and some days they were out of fresh fruit so after day 2 we passed on their 'breakfast' and went in search of protein. The gym equipment is in need of some major maintenance. I worked out everyday and found that every machine there except the recumbent bike was broken. I suggested to them they close the gym down until they make the necessary repairs. Also, for 3 out of 6 days our room was poorly cleaned, not vacuumed or swept, tub still had ring around it. Overall a nice stay, I'd come back again.
