Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Yearly destination
Have stayed here every year, at least once a year, for nearly a decade. Hotel is clean and well-run with a friendly staff. They have always accommodated us with our sometimes complicated room reservations. Restaurant/bar food is great, and staff is welcoming.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Norjet Convenient location, OK for the price
I recently traveled to NYC to exhibit at a tradeshow held at Citi Field. This property's location close to LaGuardia and within walking distance (10 minutes) of the ballpark was ideal for my tight timeline.
Hotel shuttle from LaGuardia is free and takes 10 minutes, but to hail it, call the hotel directly and do not use the Ground Transportation desk at LGA. The pickup will take place on the upper level (in front of ticketing), not the lower level (by baggage claim.)
The walk to Citi Field feels safe as the first three blocks are in quiet residential and the rest of the walk along a busy city street under train tracks.
The Q48 bus between LGA and Flushing stops 3 blocks away and I found this very convenient with a MetroCard. To catch the 7 subway I'd recommend the Citi Field station as opposed to the 111th St station both for shorter walk time and better perceived safety.
Downtown Flushing is an Asian dining dream - the Q48 bus will take you right to its heart in 15 minutes; highly recommended. There are no convenient off-property dining or convenience-store options within a couple walking blocks of the hotel, however.
Hotel corridors and elevators are narrow, doors are wooden and hallway noise is noticeable; despite fresh paint and decor this is an older hotel that will probably need to be rebuilt to remain competitive. The hotel is under an outbound flight path from LGA - if you are sensitive to such noise you'll probably want something farther away (but for business travel it's an acceptable tradeoff.)

Great location and shuttle service to the airport. Room was very comfortable and the restaurant at the hotel was excellent! If you need to do an overnight at the airport this is the place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ep5194 Great Hotel but Poor Shuttle Service
My co-worker and I waited 40 minutes for shuttle called 3 X was assured driver was on his way. Called for the last time and was informed driver drove by and missed us. Driver never drover by we stood and looked at every vehicle that went by. Management was very apologetic and shook my hand. He indicated he was going to submit bonus points as a good will gesture but I assume he forgot to...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Choose_A_Nickname Well... at least it in New York.
My experience was average at best. My family stayed there for a family reunion. We reserved a table to seat 21 of us and even though there was more than a day of notice and we were seated at 7pm the kitchen still didn't appear to be ready for us. Right off the bat the bar tried to serve us spoiled beer it was cloudy and tasted sour. Then it took over 2 hours for us to get our meals. My wife eventually had to put our children to bed so she asked for her meal to go, which took another 25 minutes so she didn't get her meal till almost 10pm. This was the only unpleasing part of our stay. Normally I would recommend a hotel despite a poor restaurant, but since it's not recommended to walk on your own in the area (Per the locals), you can’t eat anywhere else and clearly you can't eat at the hotel restaurant, this makes it difficult to recommend.
