“Convenient and well priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

A good location, near subway (either 5 minute walk or free shuttle from hotel every 1/2 hour) 2 stops and your at Grand Central Station. Its lovely being on Long Island with a great view of the city especially at night. For the best view go to Gantry State Park on Vernon Boulevard and they do really good coffee there and instead of subway you can take the NY Waterway over to Manhatten.

The hotel has all you need for a stay in NY especially as most of the day & night was spent out and about.
The rooms were clean, serviced every morning and the hotel front desk were always friendly - even let us borrow an umbrella (which we didn't need to use as fortunately the day brightened). The only downside was that there was no restaurant on site but we knew that before booking as read other reviews but next to hotel is 'Small Kitchen' where you can pick up a sandwich and some coffee before heading off for the day. They do close early so if you get back and your peckish you can order take out just ask at front desk for info.

All in all a pleasant stay and we would come again.

Level L - Lobby, luggage weight scale available
Level 1 and above - Hotel Rooms
Two elevators, Stairs available.

Room Condition:
- The room is modern in design with sufficient air-conditioning and lighting.

Check-in / Check-out and Security:
- At least two receptionists are available at the desk. Speedy check-in/out. Friendly and helpful staff.
- No security issues noted.

Housekeeping:
Friendly staff but average service. You may expect basic cleanness. Bed linen are not changed for every 3 day as promised, even you placed the bed linen request card on the bed. I have to remove the bed linen by myself and request for the new bed linen.

Transportation and Hotel Location:
- The hotel is located in Long Island City, one stop after Lexington Station in Manhattan. You may take Train 7, Train E or Train M to manhattan area. Approx. 30 mins to Wall Street or 5-10 mins to Time Square area by train.
- You may either take the shuttle to the Station (Court Square) or a a 5-min walk. It is pretty quiet at night for walking, but it is not unsafe.
- Parking is available on site and free parking maybe available at streets near the hotel. The area is generally safe for parking.

- There is a shuttle service scheduled between the hotel and Court Square Station (7, E and M Train), operates between 8:00am and 10:30pm, approximately services every 30 mins. In my experience, the shuttle does not depart from scheduled slot timely. I recommend you to contact the reception for the latest shuttle schedule.

Restaurants:
- A restaurant located next door, opens Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm, providing sandwiches.
- A fried-chicken fast food store located at the exit of Court Square station, 5 min walk from the Hotel.
- A Chinese restaurant and Subway Sandwich stores in 8 mins walk from the hotel.

- Used "Express 1 Laundromat & Dry Cleaning", located 6-8 min walk from the hotel. 95 cent per lb, including wash, dry and fold. Free delivery. Approx. US$14 per visit (13 lb). Two persons, 6-day.

Overall Recommendation:
A recommended modern hotel in the area.

Overall it was a great stay. The rooms are small. All the staff I encountered were polite and helpful.

Big NEGATIVE... the restaurant was closed by order of the court. The complimentary van was a no show one night when we wanted to use it. We were not told about a very nice restaurant nearby when we asked various staff. John Brown Smokehouse is very close and reasonably priced. We had to ask for new towels as the dirty ones were removed but not replaced.

rooms were clean but the staff was not too helpful. Had to wait one hour for a box of Kleenex and a tub mat.
One could consistently hear other rooms' toilet flushing through the pipes. at times it woke me up.

personnel at hotel very good. The room and bed comfortable, water leaked from shower doors on to floor, air conditioner unpredictable, subway a little far for seniors, no restaurant in hotel, was told restaurant was being remodeled.

Room Tip: second floor room quiet, no city view, there is a tall building in front which blocks city view.

Thank you for your feedback. Please note the restaurant will be back soon, our goal is as soon as possible. We have a plethora of restaurants in the neighborhood that deliver to the hotel as well as our shuttle will bring our guests to the heart of Vernon Boulevard where all the restaurants are located during our regular shuttle hours. Please also note we offer free shuttle to the subway station for any guests who had trouble making the short 3 block walk to the E, M Train. We also offer shuttle to the 7 train.

Our room was clean and within walking distance to the subway. The rooms in the hotel are a little compacted. Unlike other hotels where the entrance to the bathroom is closer to the entrance door, this one has the closet by the entrance and the door to the bathroom to the side of one of the beds. So whoever is on the beds or chair can see anyone in the bathroom if the door is open. The shower also has a glass door. So for a family of four, one could not be brushing their teeth or washing their hands when another is taking a shower.
This hotel has free Wi - Fi and a small exercise room. There seemed to be a restaurant on the premisses, but that was permanently closed by sanitation due to a sewage back up. They also offer a free shuttle tot he subway every half hour or by request after hours if you don't feel safe walking at night from the subway. I would not recommend for one or two people walking at night from the subway, walk during the day and ask for the shuttle when it's dark.
The room stay was affordable compared to other NY City prices.
