Hotel Z is conveniently located next to the Queensborough Bridge on Long Island. The unique location provides some breathtaking midtown skyline views from the roof top bar. A free hourly shuttle service provided by the hotel will drop you off or pick you up near the Lexington Ave and E 59th St. crossing. Just brilliant! Don't expect to do some sightseeing around the hotel though. Just take the shuttle.
The rooms are very modern and the right size. Worth noticing is the spacious shower. If I need to mention a negative it should definitely be the A/C. It's having a very hard time keeping the room cool and makes a tremendous amount of noise. Keep your ear plugs ready!
Hotel Z seems to attract a young clientele. Rooms are very trendy and you'll be experiencing a lot of catchy tunes throughout the entire hotel.
Hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. They'll help you with any question you might have.
The bar/restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Breakfast is worth mentioning. Next to fresh fruit and fresh juices it also provides a broad choice.
Free wireless internet access is available throughout the entire hotel. Notice that the hotel does not feature any fitness room or swimming pool.
In summary, a great place to start your NYC discovery!
