Second stay for me in this hotel.
Welcome is formal but nothing more.
The first thing that you will notice is the poor management of the elevators, which are not set up correctly and might take a looong time to come, need to push several times the button.
The room was a king size suite, spacious but not well insulated (noise and heat). The windows are not completely sealed which means the street noise and the cold are present.
The room is partially cleaned (at least the visible parts). When you move the side bed furniture, you will find a huge quantity of dust and dirt. I even found an empty bottle under the sofa.
The fridge was small (only allows small bottles) and tends to freeze everything (not parametrable). it made some noises also during the night. Heater/air co was noisy too, impossible to sleep with it on. The shower was quite good.
The breakfast is quite good but the population that occupies the hotel does not really behave like other people (example : donuts in the toaster etc). You have a selection of bagels, croissants, breads, cream cheese and marmelades, some fruits and yogurts, a microwave and a toaster. Coffee machine and orange/apple juices. You could have some eggs and pancakes (if lucky).
The neighborhood is not very safe when it's dark. Even during the day, i would not walk around. The subway is one block away on line F, quite convenient in fact to join Queens or Manhattan.
There is a small mini market (full of alcoholic-addicted) near the hotel, there is also an indian fast food and a subway restaurant.
