The hotel sits in a neighborhood on the up-swing, like the rest of LIC. The Queens Plaza 'hood will see the same revitalization that changed the Vernon-Jackson area so dramatically over the past decade. ALL good. I give the hotel all top 4s and 5s. It's showing a little wear, but the hard-working staff of competent young immigrants keeps it clean and humming. We had trouble with the small safe in the closet. They came back 3x in quick response till they finally got it working. When we went out at noon for 15 mins, we told the desk staff that the cleaning people could have the room. When we returned, the room was completely made-over. You don't get that in a fancy Manhattan hotel. Pannini Shop on the corner has one of the fastest and best short-order cooks in the city. There are 2 convenient Subway Lines, and busses too. The 7 train is only 1.5 short LIC blocks away. Caution for older folk. There is no alternative to the mean steps you need to climb for the Queensboro Plaza Station. Another 1.5 blocks away is the Queens Plaza (underground) station, complete with nice elevators. The ride into Manhattan is ez and short no matter where you go. But don't forget 'the hood'. LIC has hidden treasurers (like MOMA @ PS1 and the world-class dining room there) And the wonders of Old World Poland (called Greenpoint) are only a short bus-ride away. By bus you can see where you want to get off. Overall, a Hidden Gem...and the Price is Right! (May, '13).
