As a native New Yorker returning home to visit, we booked this hotel because I know the subways and how to get around. So saving a boatload of money by staying outside manhattan was great.
The hotel is modern, clean, we'll constructed. We got a balcony room on a high floor that afforded a great view of the manhattan skyline. The sunrise offers a view of the UN, queens orzo bridge, and the Empire State Building.
You won't be bothered by the noise and clamor of a hotel in the city, and a short hop on the subway takes you to midtown.
The hotel is in a very typically queens neighborhood - intimidating to first timers I'm sure. But it seems safe, solidly working lass immigrant neighborhood that is found all over queens. Having grown up in nearby elmhurst, I feel at home, but would recommend travelers to learn where the subway stops are. If they are not yet familiar with them.
At the time of writing, there is a building being constructed across the street, towards the power plant that causes some daytime noise.
It's hotel charges for parking, I think valet only, and quite expensive. (But so literally every hotel in manhattan). But if you choose to drive, you will find plenty of street parking with in the immediate few blocks of the hotel. Just read the signs and make sure you are not parked there on the one day of the week that the street sweepers move through and you should be fine.
