“perfect for what i needed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

The hotel is conveniently less then 100 yards from the subway which goes into the heart of New York, travel to Bryant Park and you will be at the bottom of Times Square next to the Library, it makes life so much easier.

The team at the hotel are very pleasant and helpful, breakfast area is rushed and crowded but let's be honest you want to get out and play in the city asap anyway so why would you want to get comfy

The room was perfect, The bed is massive and very comfy and the phAntom housekeeping team are awesome, thank you. To the team of best western thank you for making my experience a lot easier

Ooh if you get the chance go to the halal food shop and get the chicken burger it is SCRUMMY yum yum

Room Tip: Ask for the view of Empire State Building

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Hotel is conveniently located just a flock or two from the F train station: you can be in Times Square in 15 minutes. On the other hand, there's nothing around the hotel, and if you like walking the first restaurant is 20 minutes away.
Breakfast room far too small, rooms are acceptable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the west side, possibly on a higher floor: the view over Manhattan is beautiful

Convenient to subway station and provided easy access to all of New York City. as first time visitor to New York City, the Best Western Plaza was a real deal, financially and location. Would stay there again on next visit to New York City.

We were impressed by the friendly, efficient service of the staff, the overall cleanliness, room size and breakfast offered by the hotel. The area doesn't look pretty, but it is safe and relatively quiet, and only a short walk to the nearest subway or bus station. It's ideal as a base from which to explore Manhattan, Brooklyn etc and is a convenient distance from the airport too (LaGuardia / JFK).

I have stayed there a few times and have recommended it to my famliy. Hotel is nice and clean. Train station to Manhattan is 4 minute walk away. Train ride into heart of Manhattan is about 12 minutes.

Great place for those that want to be close to Manhattan but also want to be budget conscious.

Rooms are comfy and those facing Manhattan have pretty nice views.

Good for business trips, conferences, and tourists. Rooms are good in size. Breakfast is good, hot and cold items - big plus to eat and run into Manhattan.

Not too much do around the Hotel, some food options and a grocery store close by. Not a fancy place, but a solid place.

Area is mix of commercial and residential. Hotel is on a major street that is well lit.

If you are in Manhattan till late partying - cab ride is pretty reasonable in price and very quick.

Will stay there again.

We looked at staying in Manhattan but prices were cheaper here and the hotel is 3 mins away from the 21st Metro Station that gets you into Manhattan in minutes.

The area is semi commercial so not the prettiest but the hotel is clean, beds were comfortable and offered free wifi (patchy in places) and continental breakfast which can get quite busy.

There is not much around the hotel, a couple of food places not fancy(the chinese take away being the best option) there is also a laundry 2 mins away. Jag at reception helped us with take away menus.

We actually enjoyed traveling into Manhattan doing all the tourist activities and coming back to the quiet of Long Island City

If you are on a budget this is a good alternative, stay here in 3 star comfort (nicer than some of the one star hotels in Manhattan).

I stayed at this same hotel before and the service was bad. I returned a second time only because the prices are affordable. But this second visit, I must say was very good. I was very satisfied with the overall experience. I would stay here again.
