눉The location is a little far from the subway/metro. We were backpacking. Therefore, we took the subway/metro a lot. The nearest station was 1/2 mile (800m) away. Despite being a little suspicious at first sight, we walked safely late at night without any problems. If you don't have any trouble of walking a little bit, then it's not a serious problem. At nights, there are parties on the hotel's penthouse. We were on 2nd floor, so we didn't heard any noise from there, but we were close to the hotel's entrance, so we heard some people talking and laughing loudly late at night. It could have been more annoying, but we were so tired that we sleep nevertheless.
눇The staff is very kind, the hotel has a very good appearance, except that there is an expansion ongoing, then the carpets on the corridors were a little dusty from the workers. But the room was nice, big, clean, with good bathroom, wi-fi available, many TV cable channels, nice conditioning air. They also offer a shuttle service that helps to get to the nearby subway/metro stations. From Queensboro Plaza, it's very quick to get to Manhattan's main attractions.
