Stayed in here in November, great hotel with amazing views from the rooftop terrace. The bar isn't open year round but the terrace is, and the 360 degree views are definitely worth it.
The hotel is a little walk from the subway and it was a little bit quiet when walking around that area later at night but there is also a free shuttle bus to and from the hotel into Manhattan.
Our reservation (Expedia) wasn't showing up on the system when we checked in but they sorted everything out quickly and moved us to a higher room for a better view. All rooms have a great view over to Manhattan.
Overall a great hotel, with free wifi, in a handy location, close to Manhattan and the upcoming area in Long Island City. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in NYC.
