We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room and bath was very clean, attractive and reasonably well appointed, although a refrigerator and reading lamps that could be turned off without leaving the bed would be an improvement. The bed was comfortable and some of the rooms have great views of the skyline. I heard that some guests thought that the rooms were small, but by New York City standards they were spacious. Breakfast was OK-no hot entre choices, but the coffee was very good. The neighborhood is coming around but still a bit sketchy, although there are a few really good places to eat and drink within easy walking distance. The best thing about the hotel was the people. Everyone, from the front desk to the people who kept the breakfast buffet supplied to the housekeeping staff was friendly and very accommodating. Chris was especially helpful.
Being close to the subway makes getting into the City, Queens and Brooklyn easy and only minutes away. For the money this is a very good deal.
