This is a solid choice if you don't want to pay Manhattan hotel prices and don't mind taking the subway. This hotel in Queens, just two subway stops from Manhattan. It's located in Long Island City, a gritty, post-industrial neighborhood that only recently has become more residential, so it's a little gritty. The N train overpass is right next to the hotel, but rooms are quiet (we stayed on the 12th floor). The rooms somewhat nondescript, but clean and comfortable. Complimentary WiFi offers a strong signal. The complimentary breakfast is okay, only offering basics—you're better off heading into Manhattan.
