The location was perfect for me. I took the "A" line from JFK that literally comes right next to the hotel with no transfers. I was off the plane and checking into the hotel in under an hour. Close to major sites and good food. Vinny (you'll see his nametag says "Vinny and the Jets") was friendly and helpful during check-in. The rooms are small (of course) but are very clean and comfortable. Whomever cleaned my room was working for my tip because they arranged my shoes and toiletries; not used to that at a hotel at this star-level. The only thing that was annoying was the super slow elevators. Ate at the connected restaurant which was fine, not super great.
