fit my needsPros: This hotel was what we needed it to be. We were visiting family in LIC and just needed lodging, we were not spending a lot of time here. This was perfect for that. Cons: They have extremely minimal vending. After getting in for the night, my husband wanted a soda. They had 1 machine with a very limited selection of cans. Since you need to walk several blocks to find a store, this had to do. Also, on our second day, we returned to the hotel at 5:30 PM to rest and clean up and housekeeping had not yet been to our room. They came to clean our room at 7:00. We found this odd and inconvenient.
Pros: It's very nice hotel
It's located in very silent area with no traffic too much
All facilities are available near by surrounding of this hotel
No restaurant and broken showerheadPros: The restaurant was closed for renovation - we would never have booked this hotel had we known otherwise. This was never mentioned on the hotel website. The diner next door was hardly an fair substitute.
Room #701 - shower head needs to be replaced. The hotel was quick to bring in a repair man who told us that it need to be replaced - his temporary fix, not his problem, did not hold. Showering was extremely awkward.Cons: The view.
Pros: Great view of river and bridges. Responsive staff. Cons: Limited dining options.
Cons: The shuttle to and from the subway station was not running. The staff provided no apologies or a reason why it was not running.
Clean, affordable accommodations near ManhattanPros: Pleasant atmosphere just across the bridge from Manhattan. We rented CityBike bicycles outside the hotel and rode across the Queensborough Bridge to Central Park. Took about 45 minutes one-way but good exercise and a fun and different way to experience NYC.Cons: Our room was on the first floor very close to the reception desk. In the mornings, it was a bit noisy outside our room - but only the first two first floor rooms are close - ask for different rooms if you get them.
