This hotel is a quick trip from LaGuardia for about $25 via taxi or else the hotel shuttle can drop you off. We didn't drive so we don't know about parking. It's in a terrific neighborhood-- not touristy at all, except you'll feel like you're a tourist…in Taipei or Seoul! It's great! It feels like the New York people talk about but you never see on TV. We got breakfast at great pastry and coffee places are right around the corner (try "Paris Baguette" in the Queens Crossing office building two blocks away). We also had lunch upstairs at of the Queens Crossing building in "Mulan Restaurant" and it was fun, good food and really nice service, a Chinese restaurant. Great Chinese and Korean restaurants everywhere right around the hotel, actually. And it's safe at night, which is good, because you'll need the Number 7 Subway train to go to Manhattan. There's a drugstore, a couple of banks and ATMs around the corner, and several fast food places in walking distance of the hotel, so if you need something before you venture to the subway, it's right there. Very convenient.
The rooms are a comfortable,very clean, and the toiletries were all the usual good quality you see in a Sheraton. The bathroom was a bit small, but well-kept and plenty of fluffy towels and a nice shower. My one dissatisfaction is that I called ahead for an allergy-free room and they still made it up with a feather blanket! I pulled it off and since I arrived at 2am (plane was delayed!) but was really too tired to complain to the front desk and there was a perfectly fine synthetic blanket and luckily the pillows were not feather. The next day I saw the housekeeper and she told me she would make up the bed without the feather comforter. She was pretty nice.
We needed the business center down in the lobby to print up some information, and it was pretty handy. We didn't use any other facilities, other than to wait for friends in the foyer, and it's all Asian-accented decor, which fit the neighborhood and was tastefully done. Small but tidy foyer, not lots of seating area, but completely comfortable. When we needed car service to go to an event, the front desk negotiated a price and we got picked up promptly.
All in all a good trip, something of a surprise about the neighborhood, but it a good one, good people watching and good places to eat, even before you make it in to Manhattan.
