“My fifth stay here”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

It may not be the trendiest area of New York City to stay in, but I find this hotel good value, convenient for the subway (though check for weekend closures, re-routing). Excellent staff: helpful and friendly.

The BW Plaza was bright, clean, and well-run. Our room was comfortable, well-equipped, and quiet. The breakfast buffet included appealing and appetizing options as well as protein like scrambled eggs and sausage. We could easily walk to the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn.

My third year to stay here. Good value for money, convenient to subway and bus system.
Clean comfortable rooms. Complimentary breakfast gets better each year, though breakfast room does get crowded. Feroz one of the breakfast room attendants goes out of his way to be helpful.
It takes only 15 minutes by F train to get to Manhattan. I feel safe walking to the subway, one block from Hotel.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are smaller

My family stayed at this Best Western twice over several months due to a family emergency. Both times the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They made sure we didn't need anything every time we saw them - and checked on us regularly. When we needed to extend our stay by several days there was no problem, even though they were busy that week. Ankit, the manager, Salman and Rani at the front desk were especially helpful.
Our thanks to everyone at this Best Western.

If you are staying in or near NYC, this is an EXCELLENT option for less money than staying right in Manhattan. It was only 15-20 minutes and the subway station was 1 block from the hotel. Great service and decent neighborhood too!

I had read a lot about this hotel and I booked it more like a leap of faith. I was looking for something clean, cheap and near a subway line that would transport us to Manhattan quickly. I fount the Best western to be all those things. I had seen reviews complaining about the breakfast; I have nothing to say about that, other than the breakfast room is very small and it gets very hard to find a table. The hotel is located one block away from the F train stop, only 3 minutes walking.. you must walk beside a project that can be intimidating but I felt very safe. We even returned around midnight after a Broadway show and there is a lot of foot traffic that helps you feel safer. Nice bed, quiet room, with a safe in the closet. I'd say you get a lot for your money. Don't expect the 4 seasons, or The Plaza; but I am guessing that if you are reading this, is because you can't afford them ( my case, as well ). Try to get a room over the 4th floor, hopefully with a Manhattan view..

A nice stay, clean rooms, friendl staff, good complimentary breakfast, free internet and a straightforward connection to NYC by tube. Only disadvantage is the neighbourhood - a bit scary and no shops or restaurants nearby.
