The Commodore is certainly well situated within Astoria - right in the centre of the downtown. The views are lovely (bridge, waterfront, river), and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. The renovation is great - everything looks good, even the hallways. Our suite was a nice size, with a comfortable bed, sofa/table, two big windows, ipod player, etc. However, the room really does not include any extras - coffee, real glasses (plastic only), local information, etc. None of this is absolutely necessary, but for the price, it would have been nice. As others have mentioned, the location really is noisy. There are two major roads nearby, one on either side of the hotel. All seems quiet in the first part of the night, but the heavy truck traffic starts very early in the morning. Double-paned windows would probably help a lot.
