Prior info: Information sent via email prior to our arrival was useful. The private car pick-up that was scheduled prior to our arrival through the Hotel Manger never took place.
Location: Hotel is
located in Long Island City, just across from Manhattan and Roosevelt Island, only 3 Subway Stations from Manhattan.
Car Pick-up at Airport: Never happened. We lost a ½ hour waiting for a private car pick-up that never showed.
Check in: Quick and without hassle.
Outside and entrance: The Hotel outside and entrance looked rundown and could be better, the screen door needs redone.
Lobby: Once inside the hotel looked fine.
Room: Carpeted room which was roomy, clean, and quiet. As promised from the name of the Hotel, there was a view of Manhattan from the room. However, windows in room could be cleaner. Room had no safe. However, room did have a telephone, wide screen TV, refrigerator, closet, and a desk with chair.
Bathroom: Clean with a bathtub/shower, wash basin, and toilet.
Breakfast: Included in the price of the room. The Breakfast Room could have a better appearance and windows and window sill also need washed. Breakfast consisted of Pancakes/French Toast, scrambled (hard not watery) eggs, (no to-order eggs), home fries, link sausages, beans, coffee, cold milk (but one had to ask for it), orange juice/apple juice, toast, bagels, English Muffins, butter, jelly and fresh fruit. The first morning the wall mounted TVs we on and one could watch and read the close captions news while eating put on the second morning only one of the TVs was still mounted on the wall.
Dinner Restaurant: The Breakfast eating area is also the Restaurant eating area during lunch and dinner. The Menu selections are limited but the prices were fair. We had the Caesar’s Salad with chicken strips for $9. What they did not tell us as we were seated for dinner in the restaurant was that they were remodeling outside and using a drill to put on siding, which was disturbing during our meal.
Wi-Fi: In the room not so good. In the Lobby and Breakfast/Restaurant area it was fine.
Check out: Quick and without hassle.
Price: Fair for New York
We would stay here again. [Less]
