Was visiting the boyfriend's family in Queens and needed a hotel for a night. Hotel Vetiver proved to be a good value. Rates were a bit higher during our stay (April 2013...right around spring break), still, our stay was a good experience. Check-in was a bit slow as there was a rush of check-outs when we arrived and only one person at the desk. We received our room and upon entering, I was a bit disappointed when we did not have a balcony as stated in our online reservations. We asked for a different room with a balcony, and the hotel obliged. We enter the second room, and although it had a balcony, it was nearly half the size! Feeling a bit silly, we went down to the front desk to switch yet again and ended back up in the first room. The staff was very gracious even though I was playing musical rooms. I would have liked to have had the larger room with the view, but I have to say that the staff dealt with my requests for changes in a courteous manner. The room we ended up with was lovely, the carpet, as others have stated, was quite attractive. All in all, Hotel Vetiver was a nice hotel in a great location (just less than half a block from the subway). Plenty of good restaurants in walking distance (go to Arepas Cafe!) I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to stay in a nice place near the city for a reasonable price.
