This is a brand new hotel in Queens, literally 1 block from the N train subway (which goes right into Manhattan). The room and bathroom were huge by NYC standards, and featured a small refrigerator and a 2-burner stove but oddly, no microwave.
There is no restaurant/breakfast, unlike other hotels in this neighborhood, but right down the street by the subway is a terrific little diner that serves great breakfasts. We hit it every morning on our way into Manhattan.
There is also no workout facility, but they did say it is in the process of being built and should be ready by summer. The construction is taking place now, including what will be a little bar or cafe in the lobby.
The room had a balcony which we didn't use (no furniture on it) but it was a nice touch. The staff were helpful, but if you can do NOT book this with Agoda! I booked and pre-paid, but they never sent the money to the hotel. Fortunately I had an iPad I was able to call up my credit card bill and show them that I had already paid; otherwise I would have had to pay twice and then try to get my $ back from Agoda!
Free wifi was a nice touch as some other hotels charge for it.
We will definitely consider coming back.
