We didn't get off on such a great start. Upon our arrival at the HI Express Queens, there was some arguing with the front desk about our booking. In the end we (the guests) were proven right, and we never received any feedback or apology from the front desk. Other than this small hiccup, we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Grand Central Station and Times Square are one subway ride away. The subway (7) runs all day and all night, so transportation to and from Manhattan is very convenient. The walk from the subway stop to the hotel at night was a little scary at first, but after we realized that the neighborhood looks scarier than it actually is, we were OK. Nothing bad happened after all.
The hotel is clean, to say the least. Beds are big and comfortable. Nice bathroom, big TV, refrigerator and microwave in the room. Complimentary breakfast was good. Would definately stay here again if I come back to New York!
