This hotel is in a quiet, seemingly safe area near the Queensboro Bridge that has several medium range newer hotels. It's only 1 block from the subway/trains and the parking is free - but on the on the street. We had to walk 1 .5 blocks with all our luggage. Our car was parked for 2 days with no incidents. The VERY limited parking at the hotel fills up quickly in the afternoons and actually blocked the ability to unload luggage at the hotel doors. There is a courtesy luggage check area in the lobby for those checking in early or leaving later.
We found the location ideal for accessing Manhattan without the hassle of driving. Use of the 24 hr. trains/subway does require some physical exertion as the rapid transit system seems to be either elevated or well below ground - with stairs as the only access in almost all locations. (Never did find a working escalator or elevator).
Ask for an upper level room with a city view (of downtown Manhattan) if possible. The room was clean and the very comfortable bed had all freshly-washed linens and coverings on it. The breakfast area was constantly crowded but that's how we met some interesting fellow travellers. One can always take a tray up to the room for more privacy. There were some hot items offered. There is a 24-hour gas station next door that sells a wide variety of reasonably-priced food and snacks.
