We stayed at the Wyndham for 5 nights while visiting NYC and had chosen it as it was a great deal cheaper than staying in Manhattan or even Brooklyn. The hotel is 5mins walk from the E/M subway lines (1 stop from Manhattan) and 10mins or so from the 7 line (3 stops from Times Square) and the G line (to Brooklyn) so a great location. People say the area is rough etc. but it really isn't, I just don't think a lot of reviewers know what an average neighbourhood looks like! We walked to/from thr subway at all hours and always felt safe. The little store next to the subway sells great quality produce, and Petey's Burger which is just along the street is fantastic if you want something quick to eat on your first night. The boardwalk with fantastic views is 5mins away too - check out the photo of it at the check in desk.
The hotel itself was very new, clean, and modern. It has a public computer for use with laser printer that works perfectly for printing tickets etc. and a very small but excellent clean gym with treadmills and weights for use. We didn't use the bar but that looked good too. Reception staff were very friendly and the shuttle seemed frequent and well used - we also had no problems with the wifi unlike other reviewers.
The room was great, roomy by 'big city' standards and the TV had loads of channels. We had a view of the Queensboro bridge and midtown manhattan from the 6th floor. The one and only thing that was a let down was the housekeeping! When we arrived there was no toilet roll, and when coming back on our second night still none had been brought even though the room had been cleaned, but it was promptly provided when asked. On the third day no towels were put in, and on the fourth day housekeeping only arrived at 6.15pm when we were getting washed and ready to go out for dinner! So we didn't get any cleaning service that day.
We would definitely return to the Wyndham based on price and quality - just please sort out the slack housekeeping service :)
