“A Gem in the Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

While this gritty industrial neighborhood is not prime, it is very accessible. We walked to the subway, got off at the next stop, Roosevelt Island, and took the aerial tram featured in Spiderman for a dramatic entrance to Manhattan. We scored free onstreet parking right in front of the hotel, where we left the car for the whole weekend. The decor is contemporary, comfy bed and pillows. Slide out deck and ottomans under the nightstands facilitate the spaciousness of the room while allowing seating for four. The alarm radio has an Ipod dock. An LG TV screen is PC interfaceable. The drapes can't be completely closed for total darkness, but offer city views. A roomy shower is large with dispensers of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel. The cafe downstairs serves Brooklyn beers on tap, but closes at 11. Wednesday happy hour specials were advertised, but we had to go home.

As soon as you walk through the Lobby of this hotel You can tell right away it is a new hotel. Very modern look makes you feel right at home. The rooms were good size And i had a great night's sleep. I stayed here at the Four points for 2 nights on business and it was very EASY for me to get in and Out of Manhattan from this location subway station is 2 blocks away! After work i also had dinner and a drink with my co-worker at Michael's Cafe. Food was very good and well priced. ALSO...I Used the car service to Laguardia. 20$!!!
Stay at this hotel!!!

I stayed 5 nights in this hotel and although the beds are comfortable and the view wonderful I found the housekeeping to be rather shoddy. My bed was roughly made and the bottom sheet not straightened or the dust and fingermarks removed from surfaces. Sometimes complimentary coffee was left in the room and sometimes not. The reception staff I found on a number of occasions including check in and enquiring about room service to be rude and uncaring. I would not recommend this hotel for its friendliness or customer service.

Room Tip: Higher the better

Everything was great from the start. Front desk and staff really went out of their to make my stay as pleasant as possible. The room was very new and clean. View of NYC skyline from my room. 2 minute ride to NYC and didn't have to pay outrageous price. I was very happy with my stay and would come back again.

I have an office in Long Island City, but travel into the city often when I am there. This hotel is extremely accessible to and from the city, just a short train ride or a short cab ride.

The views are great. I was fortunate enough to get a room with a balcony; there are only 6 in the hotel. The room was extremely efficient, not very large but certainly large enough. The way the furniture is designed, with desk extensions that fit under the desk, ottoman/seats that fit under the night tables, etc., they have made fantastic use of the space. The TV also has connections for VGA, DVI, etc., so that you can work from your laptop, or view movies from your tablet, etc. Very nice touch. The bathroom was a bit small but again, perfectly functional. The shower itself was a nice size and had convenient dispensers for bath gel, shampoo and conditioner. There could have been a little more shelf space, but it was functional. One aspect I did not like (and this hotel is not alone in this issue) is that in order to turn the water on in the shower, you need to reach past a glass shower wall and turn it on, meaning that your arm will get soaked with cold water, unless you have moved the (rather high) shower head the time before so that it didn't spray in that direction.

I am a Starwood preferred and I am not sure if that is why I got free wifi, but it was very fast, better than most any hotel I have stayed at (and I stay at about 40 - 50 hotels a year). Breakfast was also free with a coupon, but I think that has to do with being Starwood preferred as well. In any case, I never had time for breakfast, but I did see that it was a full served breakfast and not a buffet.

Long Island City and Astoria are great areas; for people who have not been to NY, this is the place to be. It's much "cooler" than staying in NYC (and less expensive, for the most part) and it is really, really convenient. In terms of travel, it is closer to midtown than if you stayed downtown in the city. Closer than say, Greenwich Village is to midtown. Don't let the fact that it is across the river fool you, just think of it as a big boulevard.

Parking is $25 per day in an underground garage, but I was able to park both days on the street. There is alternate side of the street parking on Thursday but you should be fine on other days.

While not inexpensive, this is still a great deal compared to comparable hotels in the city. You can get a hotel midtown for the same price, but it will be of lesser quality.

The hotel staff were extremely friendly, recognized me from my last stay, and were very efficient.

Try and get a balcony room. The front desk told me, when I tried to book in advance for my next trip, that they often offer better deals on the web. I appreciated her honesty.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the six balcony rooms for a fantastic view.
