Found this fairly new hotel by using Starwood's deals directly and at the last minute. The bed was comfortable and the linens crisp & clean. There is a well-equipped business centre on the main floor (which we used for travel tips in NYC). There is no microwave in the room but the room was spacious and had a chair and desk. We luckily got a room with a great view of downtown Manhattan (across the East River) from our upper level floor. We were only a couple of blocks from the trains/subway which run frequently and throughout 24 hours. Times Square was only a 15 minute ride from our 39th Street station (N, Q, lines). Even at 2am we felt safe walking back to the hotel from the trains. Parking, on the street, was free and we were able to leave the car parked all day & night. There are several new hotels in the same area (apparently an initiative of the NYC greater area planners). Note: staying in Long Island City was way cheaper and quieter than staying in downtown Manhattan. However, leaving the car parked to use the trains/subway (only $2.25 fare per use) requires physical ability to use stairs - lots and lots of stairs. Also, we had to pay $12 to cross onto Manhattan using the George Washington Bridge, and then another $1 to cross onto Long Island using another bridge (but no fees for exiting using either of the same bridges). Forget about leaving the city by car at either rush hour time. We planned for a 12pm departure and had no problems.
