This is a little gem. Staff was great, very friendly and accommodating. Lobby was glowing and room was very clean. Nice soap and shampoo. Shower faucets a little hard to figure out - had to call to desk clerk (pull out the ring - you'll see).
Breakfast nook with continental breakfast was very nicely stocked and a pleasant place to sit. Other travellers that joined us were tourists, US and foreign, and business travellers.
Our 8th floor room had a fabulous view of the Citibank building and a glorious sunset. (If you stood to look out the window, you could see the junkyard. So sit down. You've had a long day.)
The neighborhood was a little seedy but I felt pretty safe. Take the usual precautions, you're in NYC.
The Comfort Inn is a half block from the elevated Queensborough Plaza "R" train station - if you are at the back of the train coming from Manhattan you can almost see it from the station.
And the Queensborough Plaza station is 5 min from Manhattan (E 59th St) - and in range of anything you want to do in Manhattan. Go the other way on the subway to Broadway or 30th Ave and you have your choice of excellent Greek, Indian, Italian and other ethnic restaurants, most very affordable.
We never would have been able to stay in NY if not for this great place. With AAA discount, less than $130. Great place, great staff. Thanks!
