“Modern, clean, wow on the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

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.

One of those times when you want to breathe in the corner shawarma smoke and then be transfixed with an exhibition at the Guggenheim, yet you don't want to pay a penalty for booking last minute. That is when this one stop away from it all is a very good choice. This very clean and comfortable hotel is a great find since it is a short walk to the Q train and one stop to Midtown Manhattan. Probably not intended for a long stay but great for this short stay. The room service was surprisingly good and very fast. We did get stuck in the right side elevator twice, no need to sound the alarm since the doors opened on their own, a quick switch to the left elevator was the solution in trying to get to the lobby, the stairs are also available. The best part, on hot 90 degree weather, the AC had a 55 degree setting that worked! Awesome.

This hotel has fantastic staff, very customer centric in particular their management (Dimitiri?). They went the extra mile when they did not have to. I had my car broken into and they accomodated my car in their already full parking lot. I will recomend this hotel to everyone I know and will definitely be back!

Stayed two nights here while seeing the Yankees.

Pros:
+ Smooth check-in
+ Polished, attractive lobby area extends into hallways and rooms
+ Awesome beds
+ Reasonable rates
+ Well-equipped and sleek room with comfortable evening chair, work desk area
+ They offer a AAA rate with breakfast that is only marginally more than their regular rate
+ The American breakfast offered here is delicious and served with a smile within 10 minutes
+ Excellent service at the bar with daily happy hour specials from 4:30-7:30
+ Nice Manhattan views from the 7th floor patio
+ Easy access to Times Square - 8 minutes on the 7 subway line, 30 minutes to Yankee Stadium using the nearby N/Q lines then 4 line
+ Smart business center PC setup requires one to stand, and eliminates the common issue of kids hoarding business PCs for facebook

Cons:
- The 11th/12th floors with the best views are closed for rooftop renovations, which I am told will be complete in September 2013
- Alarm clock not plugged in, no easy way to set clock
- Next to linen closet, so heard door opening and closing all hours of the day and night
- The three long blocks from the 7 subway line is not a pleasant walk at night (shut down businesses, graffiti, taxi repair shops)
- I could not find a vending machine on any of the floors - looked for a Coke and could not find one in the small store next to check-in, either (no convenience stores in the area, absolutely nothing open late at night)

Overall, I really liked this modern hotel. The rooftop patio will be a nice addition.

Room Tip: Was on 3rd floor- not much of a view of Manhattan. Request 5th floor+ to see the skyline.

A comfortable, clean, well-maintained hotel in Long Island City, very close to the N train (two stops to Manhattan) or a 10 minute cab ride to 59th and 2nd. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed with very comfortable beds. Pleasant front desk. One caveat: The hotel has an insufficient number of basement parking spaces, so if you are driving, reserve a garage space in advance.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with a view of the Manhattan skyline. Stunning.

Good choice if you want to stay in a reasonably good hotel for a reasonable price and still be able to reach downtown in 15 minutes. We stayed 5 days, service and food were good, rooms were clean.
It takes 5 minutes of walk to the nearest subway station, then 10 more minutes and you are in Manhattan.
Neighborhood isn't nice, but still feels relatively safe (as much as you can feel safe in any other big American city..). So as long as you use it as your overnight stay while you are exploring city - works just fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view room, it has a nice view of Manhattan (do not expect anything superb though).

We visited here in early August as we were seeking out hotels near our son's future wedding site. The hotel is just what we need. The proximity to the venue is great. The rooms are clean and offer excellent views of Manhattan skylines. The lobby is clean and modern. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were even able to meet with the General Manager on short notice to discuss block reservations. He also was pleasant and helpful. We will definitely consider this as one of the site to use for our son's wedding hotels. We will be back.
