I di not care for the front desk management to photo-copy and carbon copy an image of my credit card and the information on it. Many other establishments only 'swipe' the credit card upon arrival, and suffices for the deposit and charge. Copying the card itself only lends to information getting in the wrong hans and contributes to theft and identitiy theft. I discussed this with the manager, but he stated that this was the policy. I was confused.
The staff was wonderful and very nice. Nice location and everything was good until the heat broke and they couldn't fix it and it was terrible after that.
Heat broke for an entire day.
Continental breakfast (cereal and milk, muffins and pasteries, coffee, juice). Free Wi-Fi fast and reliable. Staff printed out emailed tickets for us on their printer. Room was small but clean with NO BEDBUGS. 61 St. / Woodside subway (7 line) a few blocks away. Laundrymats, shops, bars / pubs, post office, and fast food all within a few blocks. Close to JFK / La Guardia. Front desk manned 24 hrs / day.
Rear parking lot (ONLY parking except for streets) too small and cramped; have to back out to street or pull a 7 point turn. Basement level hallway was musty smelling; this carried over into room a bit. Shower's hot water not hot enough.
+ very good location to see the NYC in a very good price + modest but very clean, tidy and comfortable room + friendly staff
- poor breakfest (but it is understandable if taking into account the price)
