A good location, near subway (either 5 minute walk or free shuttle from hotel every 1/2 hour) 2 stops and your at Grand Central Station. Its lovely being on Long Island with a great view of the city especially at night. For the best view go to Gantry State Park on Vernon Boulevard and they do really good coffee there and instead of subway you can take the NY Waterway over to Manhatten.
The hotel has all you need for a stay in NY especially as most of the day & night was spent out and about.
The rooms were clean, serviced every morning and the hotel front desk were always friendly - even let us borrow an umbrella (which we didn't need to use as fortunately the day brightened). The only downside was that there was no restaurant on site but we knew that before booking as read other reviews but next to hotel is 'Small Kitchen' where you can pick up a sandwich and some coffee before heading off for the day. They do close early so if you get back and your peckish you can order take out just ask at front desk for info.
All in all a pleasant stay and we would come again.
