The hotel is fairly new and we found it to be excellent for our needs. We were booked in as 'room only' and had requested a quiet room too, which it was. We had not booked a room with a view, so although ours was not bad, there are probably excellent views from the other rooms. It was also very clean and well equipped, it also had tea/coffee making facilities (no milk though), although this wasn't a problem to us. There was a powerful shower which sometimes did take a while for the hot water to come through but once it did, it was absolutely fine.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and informative and were able to assist and answer any questions that we had. They have a shuttle bus which is free of charge and is very helpful for transport and shopping.
The only negative we would have is that they have an Italian restaurant housed within the hotel which you pay separately for, when we ate there we had to ask for the air conditioning to be turned down as it was extremely cold and the meal was huge and not the best Italian we've ever had and the red wine was not only expensive but quite awful. Hence we only ate there one night but there are some lovely restaurants nearby which are great and plenty of choice with regard different types of food.
It is a short walk to the water ferry across to Manhattan which only costs 4 dollars each trip but is well worth it.
Staying on Long Island means that you are in a quieter part of New York but the main areas are easily accessible by various modes of transport. There is a large area along the river bank which overlooks Manhattan which is still being developed but is already really beautiful with hammocks, seating, picnic areas etc. which is well worth a visit.
All in all it was an excellent stay and we would recommend it to anyone.
