“Great price with easy access to Manhattan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We stayed here before departing on a cruise. It proved to be a very convenient location to the city, without paying the high Manhattan prices! Easy valet service for our car. Friendly bar that stayed open late for us. Nice breakfast... including fresh fruit... every morning. Unfortunately, my husband left some clothes hanging in the closet... never to be seen again, despite our calls to management just hours later. Sigh.

Save a lot by staying here instead of in Manhattan. It's newly built, clean, and about a five minute walk to the E and R trains, a few minutes more to the 7 or N. You can zip into town in about ten minutes. The hotel itself is a typical chain operation and there's not much in the neighborhood (it's semi-industrial but not dangerous at all). You'll need to do your eating, sight seeing and shopping in Manhattan, for sure. The front desk staff is friendly and effective, but the level of service outside of that is pretty minimal. But the bed is comfortable, the room HVAC works, the Wifi is free, and you'll pay $100-150 less per night (at least!) over comparable hotels in Midtown Manhattan.

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.

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting NYC.
The hotel is conveniently located just outside Manhattan but near multiple subway stations (within 5-10mins walking). It never took us more than 20 mins to get to Times Square or thereabout.

The staff is very friendly & professional while still being very young :)

Location of the hotel is in a one-way street next to the above ground subway. You have some noise from it (alongside the typical city noise of cars honking and police sirens). We stayed on the top floor and never lost any sleep for the noise. So for us this was not an issue at all.

Free breakfast is the usual US continental stuff with some pieces fo fruit added (fruit salad, apples, bananas).

The hotel offers a car service to the ariports which come out cheaper than the taxi fare (for us at least to JFK). The also were more than willing to keep our luggage the last day until 4pm while we still visited the city.

All in all, we really enjoyed this place and would definitely come back here next time we are in NYC.

Room Tip: From the higher rooms on the streetside you have a view on the NYC skyline

This review is based on a two night stay to attend a wedding in Queens and to visit friends in Midtown Manhattan.

This is a new hotel in an "up and coming" part of queens. There is nothing in the vicinity of the hotel but you are within a 5 min walk of several subway lines. I took the 7 train to get into Manhattan. The area near the hotel felt safe (I feel safe everywhere in NYC), but it is a little desolate, especially late at night.

Room was perfect and the free breakfast was fairfield standard (actually very good). Breakfast room/hotel lobby is very nice with ample power points.

Overall a very good value option if you are okay getting the subway into Manhattan or to your destination in the city and want to avoid the super high Manhattan hotel prices.

I stayed in the Fairfield Inn and Suites for 19 days this past February 2014 to help our son and his girlfriend. The staff there is amazing--especially Jasmine at the Front Desk!! They/she made me feel right at home and helped with anything I needed while I was there! They had a great free breakfast and a nice evening restaurant/bar!! The weather was terrible, but the staff really made my stay THE BEST ever!! The location is wonderful, too--right over the Queensboro bridge is mid-town Manhattan!! Will definitely stay there on my next visit to NYC!!

Room Tip: High floors are the quietest.

I stayed in this hotel for around a month in March 2014 and it was a pleasant experience. The property is new and well maintained. The breakfast spread was wholesome with courteous staff around. Good wifi and other amenities. All in all a good setup. If you are travelling to Long Island or queens ... Try this place. Well connected by trains too.

Only suggestion I have is that the place is highly under marketed. Please put up dorm big boards on top for it to be visible from far. Not easy to spot it.

Thanks

Room Tip: Single king size bed.
