Thank you so much for your feedback. We are working feverishly on the heating issue we have in the lobby. We have made some steps to correct the problem with more to follow. These unusual sub 0 temperatures have made it a bit difficult for us and we apologize for that.

We are delighted though that you did enjoy your stay with us otherwise and we hope you come back and see us again.

Horrible courtesy from staff. I rather double even triple to stay at a worse hotel. Calling and knocking every 15 min to ask us to check out even tho we didn't arrive til 4am to check in and I also agreed already to stay an extra day. Not all wyndham's are like that. Just the staff n management at this particular location in Long Island city. I have stayed at Wyndham hotels on all my trips and this is by far the worst experience. I stayed in slum hotels that are more courteous then this hotel. Bottom line.., if u don't wanna feel welcomed or at home then by all means stay here. But if your lookin for someplace to start your vacation off right...stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Anywhere but this Wyndham.

I am truly sorry about this experience you had. We would have gladly extended your stay for the extra night upon check-in. We do have some new housekeepers since we re-opened our doors and now that I know this happened we are re-training them to make sure they do not knock on doors on a continuous basis. We hope you will give us another chance and come back so we can show you how we can do it the right way.

We stayed here for a long weekend. The shuttle was a great option. It took us and picked us up from the train. The train was one stop away from Manhattan.

The property was clean and the people were friendly.

I work for Citibank and commute up to LIC on business. While normally I'm a five star hotel person, I wanted a hotel that was closer to the office, but didn't want a cheap, dirty place. On this trip I booked at this hotel and I can guarantee you I will be back again. The staff is phenomenal, providing the level of service of a five star mid-town place. Rooms very clean, comfortable, and a restaurant right down stairs. Shuttle service is a plus! Keep up the great job and you have a loyal guest!!

I booked this room for my boyfriend's birthday and we had a blast! room was nice and clean, bed was VERY comfortable, and it was quiet. I would definitely recommend this place!

I didn't get to check out the free breakfast or restaurants in the area :( I wish I did lol we just ordered out and relaxed in the room all night. My boyfriend and I are looking to come back for Valentine's day

I booked this hotel in September, 2 months before my staying in NYC. They charged my credit card for the total ammount plus taxes. It was everything ok. I was sure that everything was paid and I was just waiting for my trip to the City. The cancelled the booking just one week before my check-in! I had to get to NYC in a period of high-season and obviosuly the hotels were amost all fully-booked and the last rooms available were very expensive. I can undesrstand that the hotel was destroyed by Sally but they had other 2 hotels in New York City so that we could get there, but they didn't care about our booking. They prefer to loose the guests. It has been a horrible experience also because they didn't apologize with us. They had just contacted Booking.com that contacted us. I will never recommed this hotel and this chain!!!!
