“Nice Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

Stayed here fro 5 nights in May, The location was very good 2 blocks (5mins) from 21st Street subway station which is only 2 stops from Manhattan (10 mins) on the F Line
We had a King Suite which was huge, Breakfast was free, continental and buffet style and plenty off it, there is two rooms for breakfast as it can get crowed at busy times.
All the staff were helpful and polite.
The reception staff checked us in and out with no bother, they also gave us directions to all the main attractions from the subway station

Only problems were housekeeping, room was not vacumned during or stay in fact we never seen them doing any of the public areas, also a layer of dust was on all the furniture throughout our visit. Bed was made up each day and shower room reset but that was it.

I would recommend anyone to stay here both from a value and ease of access to Manhattan.

From JFK pay $5 on exiting the sky train, keep this ticket and get the unlimited 7 day Metro at the ticket booth, get the E Train to Jackson Height/Roosevelt and change to the F Train (same track) next stop is 21st Street Queens cost $30 for subway and bus, well worth it.

Room Tip: look for Manhattan view and upper level

I was looking for a hotel close to LGA as I has an early morning flight. Unfortunately, most hotels were sold out. This hotel was available. I was very pleased with this hotel. It provided a good value. The room was very comfortable. The customer service was excellent. It is less than 10 minutes from the terminal. I would return here again!

it's located in Queens but very close to the East river so in fact it's very easy and quick to get Manhattan by subway (the station is 5 min walking) but the price is much more better then if you take the same quality room in Manhattan, so I beleive it's one of the best solutions if you visit in NYC and would like to save some money. Nive view to the Manhattan

The location was where we needed to be and there was availability, which was a problem in the area on this weekend. The hotel was full, but there was only one operational elevator. Fine for me because I do not mind the stairs, but it was a problem for those unable or unwilling to climb the stairs. We paid the extra for a suite, since it had a pull out couch for our son; however the stays on the foot that held up the mattress were broken. Rather than fix the bed, the broken stays had been placed in the bed and the pull out closed. My son, not being one to complain, simply slept on the floor.
Breakfast was fine, staff was friendly.

Room Tip: Not sure that one room is better than another. View from the front is of 21st St and the burned out...

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.
