First leg of our 40th wedding anniversary tour - never been to USA - never to New York[sic].
Decided -due to budget requirements & crazy mid town hotel prices - to use this facitlty. Very similar to Travelodge/Premier Inn UK - in room facilities [ perphaps a little smaller but had fridge, microwave & fridge + allowinf takeaways being ordered in] - but with really nice buffet breakfast provided as part of the deal. Went via Booking.com with no problems & good prices.
Very clean & central to 2 Metro connections into city - with one metro station you can walk [ within 10/15 minutes] or use their is a "courtesy bus" who will take you & bring you back within certain time frames - but pretty flexible. Really, really nice staff !!
Area is a bit industrial - but no safety issues and the travel in by metro is about 40 minutes and the cost is just over US2$ a person per trip - although if like us you are staying for a few days - get a metro card for discounted travel.
We stayed for 4 nights for US$440 + vat at 14.62% + city service charge US$3.50 per day - overall about US$520 for the stay - but believe me when compared to Manhattan hotels - is very competitive + you see a different side/sight to city centre New York citizens - again no problem & very helpful to us Brits.
Major benefit also was we had an early flight out of JFK to Las Vegas, & the courtesy bus not only collected us from the airport / but delivered us back to Federal Circle - which is the free airport train which runs around JFK and allows you free stop offs to the various terminals.
Can fully recommend this hotel for clean, well trained & competent staff at hotel rates which are "real" - would certainly use this hotel again.
