We were drawn towards the Z Hotel as the views looked very impressive on the website and we were out of the noise and crowds of Manhatten area during the evenings. The view from the rooms and the rooftop bar were breathtaking and for people that live in and love the countryside that might seem a bit strange. Transport to and from Manhatten was never a problem for us as the hotel runs a shuttle service every hour and to be driven over the Queensborough bridge is an experience in itself. The limo seats eight at a push and the hotel will lay on extra transport if the limo is full. The district is a bit industrial but we did not find that a problem at all. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well serviced by the staff who were all young, friendly and polite throughout our stay. The only downside with the room was the air conditioning unit which got rather noisy during the night which we needed to run as the weather was very hot. Breakfast was continental and always well stocked but it would have been nice to have a cereal option for a change but thats being a bit picky. We would love to go back and would stay at the Z again but that will be one for the future.
