This is a pretty nice place in a nice quiet neighborhood. The lobby offers easy access for your luggage and the elevators are only steps away. The elevators are slow, clunky and noisy but that is not a big deal. The room was quite spacious with a work space area but I wished it had a larger fridge instead of the little one that was there. A person like me, coming from a different travel location with things that need to be refrigerated, may run into a problem. There wasn't much of a view (LIRR? train tracks) and passing trains are a bit noisy but not too much so. The remote controller was a bit temperamental as it only seemed to work when it wanted and not at angles. The valet parking was something I had not experienced at a hotel. I didn't know if I should tip (I did) and even though the longest wait in 3 nights there was only about 5 minutes, I prefer a place where I can get my car when I want without waiting. The valets were friendly and polite. There is parking for 2 cars directly in front of the property but the meters there come on at 9 am so have lots of quarters on hand if you want to use them. In conclusion, I tried this hotel because it had high reviews and I definitely saw the reason: it is a really nice, clean place and seemed to have a lot going on each day in their meeting rooms, with lots of people milling about in the lobby. I didn't get a chance to have a drink at the bar in the lobby but it looked like a nice cozy spot. No major problems at this place.
