I stayed here two weekends in February 2013 for business. I was initially hesitant about the hotel bc as I drove up to the entrance I noticed that directly across the street is some kind of industrial manufacturing or distribution center.
Not a big deal for me bc I was there for business and the hotel was safe but I would be a little weary if I was travelling with young kids. For my purposes however, the hotel was conveniently located near the expressway and 15 minutes from Manhasset where I was going for work. A pleasant surprise was that the hotel was a half a block from a high end outlet center which included all my favorites like Nordstrom Rack, Saks outlet, Bloomingdales outlet, and Trader Joes.
The staff who greeted me were incredibly warm and friendly. I appreciated their recommendations for takeout dinner bc I found this wonderful place called the Burger Spot which had the BEST fries ever. The room was clean and spacious and I was very impressed by the spotless bathroom- the walkin shower was huge and had great water pressure. Access to internet was convenient, easy, and free (a benefit with Hyatt rewards platinum membership). I was also very impressed by the quality of the breakfast which was free to all guests. Their breakfast sandwiches had healthy alternatives (egg whites, spinach) and there was an abundance of yogurt, fruit, juices and LaColombe (!!!) coffee.
My only criticism was that when I initially walked into the room, it smelled of very strong cleaning materials (which was good bc the place had recently been cleaned) but also gave me a headache. Also, during my first night I was awoken by my neighbor who was talking very loudly about how it was only 4 am in the morning. The walls were very thin and the bed inconveniently located on the same wall as my neighbor's bed. Overall though it was a great stay(s).
