Sheraton LaGuardia East is fine if you need a location near LaGuardia airport or have to stay in the downtown Flushing area.
-Location is convenient and in the vibrant downtown Flushing area (i.e. Chinatown) near excellent restaurants serving authentic Asian cuisine. Go to Asian Jewels for dim sum, Nan Xiang for soup dumplings and scallion pancakes, and the New World Mall Food court, among others.
-Hotel rooms are clean
-Client service is friendly
-10% discount for NY residents. Book online.
-The windows in the rooms do not open at all which strikes me as odd. Besides the safety concerns this raises, it also means that if the previous guest smoked in the room (which sounds like it happens pretty regularly) the room smells like cigarettes and is difficult to air out. The hotel sent someone to spray the room with air freshner which was cloying and sweet. I actually decided that it would have been preferable to have the cigarette smell.
-They bungled our airport pickup badly. We ended up waiting almost an hour for a shuttle that they had said would take 20-25 minute to arrive. The front desk apologized and provided free breakfast buffet vouchers when we arrived to the hotel. Nice gesture but unfortunately the incident left a very poor (and lasting) impression on me.
Summary: Sheraton LaGuardia East is ok. There is a new Hyatt opening on the next block which we will probably consider for future visits.
