“Hip and fabulous view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The rooms are spacious, modern and super clean. All of them have an amazing view of Manhattan, worth the 10 minute shuttle. Staff is welcoming and friendly. Beds are comfy. Don't be afraid to leave Manhattan! There is a club on the roof garden with DJs playing every night. Great experience.

This hotel was very disappointing and was average to poor in just about all respects. I've stayed in hotels of all classes around the world, including at least 10-15 hotels in Manhattan, and this was one of the worst I can remember.

The front desk service was no where near a Manhattan standard and ranged from indifferent to inept. My room was not available on time, for example, and my room keycard stopped functioning on three different occasions. As I was leaving, the guest behind me was told that he was involuntarily switched to another hotel, which I'm sure he was thrilled about.

The elevators are slow, and one was out of service during my entire trip. The hallways are exposed to the elements, like some motel you'd find at a beach town. The rooms are built to a cheap standard, with low quality mattresses and linens, not a single chair or sofa, and virtually no lighting. The air conditioning units leak water and are extremely noisy. The hotel has nice views of Manhattan but is in a dead part of Long Island City, surrounded by taxi repair companies and mediocre delis.

As noted above, the hotel is average or worse in all respects, not just one. It might well still be the best hotel in Queens, but that is hardly saying anything.

Room Tip: Lower floors get street noise, whereas upper floors get noise from the roof desk, no there is no rea...

Excellent, the view over the Manhattan skyline never disappoints, day or night you get the WOW feature looking across to the city. The staff are very friendly. Sam, the duty manager could not have been more helpful. The shuttle bus that transports you into the centre is an added bonus, going on the hour every hour makes getting around the city so easy. The rooms are spotlessly clean

new hotel (2 yrs old) in long island city just by the queensboro bridge with the most incredible view of the NY skyline from their rooftop bar and terrace, and from all the rooms. free wifi, good sized, comfortable rooms with en suite bathroom. Clean, modern, great staff. Free shuttle every hour to and from 59th st, otherwise about $10 in a cab. Rooftop bar has loud parties with djs etc every friday and saturday night until early morning, so get a lower room (below level 6) at weekends if that sort of thing bothers you. Has comfortable bar and restaurant in lower level. You get a lot more bang for your buck by not being in manhattan.

Room Tip: choose a room below 6th floor when there's a party on the rooftop (fri/ sat)

Stayed here one night midweek for about $200/night (including taxes) and had a great experience. It's a new hotel and the rooms are pretty modern. The staff at the front desk was very nice and check in was fast and easy (they hold a C/C on file for incidentals and put a hold on it of $50, no biggie). They have a shuttle that takes you or picks you up from the city (every hour, location is Lexington/59th) which was a big plus. They accept tips for that so do tip if you use it. I felt bad because I had nothing less than a $100 bill. Rooftop view was absolutely incredible, especially at night. You have to go up there and take pics, an absolute must. Downstairs they have a bar and lounge area which was very cool. You can also print out stuff for work or travel in their "business center". Although I didn't buy anything, drinks inside the small fridge in the room were actually quasi reasonable ($6 for a Jack Daniels, tiny bottle). Not cheap but def not like Vegas where you pay could pay up to $15 for it. The surrounding area isn't super nice but that's OK. Would def stay again!

Room Tip: All rooms are good as they all have a view of the city but try to get one higher up for a better vie...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in July. There was a stifling heat wave on the city but the air conditioning was perfect and kept our room nice and cool. This hotel is definitely for younger people with loud music in the lobby and a very young but professional staff. The lounge is great and the breakfast is nice but relatively expensive for what you get. The room is spacious with a great view of the manhattan skyline. The shuttle allowed for perfect transportation to and from the city.

TIP: the pick up point is around the corner from the drop off point.

The internet was good and the telephone calls (international as well) are free. We didn't hear anything of the party on the 6th floor and we were warned about it before picking a floor. The only minor complaint was that the room was relatively dusty and a layer would settle on all screens within the hour.

Great hotel and would definitely come back if we visit NYC again.

I live in NYC, however as part of my birthday present, my husband decided to get us a night in this hotel, like a mini vacation since we had a show to attend the next day in the city.

We stayed on a Friday. Arrived at the hotel, it was a bit warm, well it was a hot day. The people at the front desk didn't seem too happy. I think cause the heat was getting to them.
It looks like a swanky hotel right when you step in. My husband had already checked in earlier so I went straight upstairs to our room. The corridors were warm but didn't bother me too much. All the rooms are all facing Manhattan. I walk into our room and wow. Compared to other hotels we've stayed at (bigger chains), it was smaller but modern...the layout and design. The bathroom was nice too. Very different. I didn't mind the sink being outside the bathroom. It was actually convenient. Also, they provide complimentary slippers during our stay. That was really awesome. There's a minibar but didn't take anything from it. The bed was pretty comfy. It was difficult to get up the next morning.

We decide to check out the rooftop... amazing views. Too bad we didn't get a chance to see it at night time. I'm sure it was beautiful. We then went to the lounge/dining area where we had some happy hour drinks! The bar tender at that time was very hospitable as well as the chef. The waitress was not bad either. Pretty good food. Had some sliders and tuscan fries. We also were allowed to bring our drinks back to our room. I totally passed out after that. However, fireworks woke me up around 2am. Not sure if they always have that or because it was the 4th of July weekend.

Next day, we had to check out around 12am, however, last minute we decided to stay another night cause we just couldn't leave. They were very accommodating.

They provide a shuttle that's very convenient and drops you off at midtown. Spent the day in the city and took the shuttle back. It arrived on time.

Sunday morning, had breakfast from their buffet which costs $10 + gratuity and tax. It was actually pretty good. Apparently, you can get a voucher for this depending on how you book your room.

All in all, to sum things up. It was a great stay. We will definitely have another mini staycation and stay in this hotel again but during the fall time.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor and could hear the bass of the music from the rooftop. Highly recommend st...
