“not bad for the money”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

not a bad hotel, but nor great either.

I like Marriott courtyards. Fairfield Inns - the cheaper end of the chain - tend to show it in
many ways - mismatched wallpaper, missing bathroom tiles, etc. A lot of little things - nothing that really matetrs, but you can notice them.

A few other things.

the shuttle works as advertised, but waiting for it and then waiting for the subway makes getting into Manhattan pretty time consuming.

the neighborhood is commercial and industrial but not a problem - but also not a lot of fun to walk around in. If you have a car, spend some time in the more urban parts of Queens (e.g., Steinway Street and Broadway in Astoria) - its close and is pretty interesting. Google "cheap eats" for greeat lunch spots in very ethnic neighborhoods.

the breakfast is crowded and slighty below average.

parking is a little odd - but we had no trouble parkig on the street.

Stayed April 2012, travelled with friends

This reasonably priced option, a great alternative to pricy Manhattan hotels is only a short metro ride to/from Times Square 42 St for connections all over Manhattan. There is an included Breakfast, including some hot items, good coffee, quality juices and more plus a very convenient complimentary hotel shuttle service to/from the closest metro station on line 7, 33-Rawson. Shuttle runs on the 1/2 hour, or more frequently if you call the hotel. Lobby shop has drinks and snacks (including beer) to purchase and complimentary internet in the lobby. I highly recommend this hotel, the staff are very friendly and helpful from the maintenance and housekeeping crew to the front desk.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during a long weekend trip to NYC. We were very excited to visit the big apple for the very first time. The location of this hotel was okay, they offer a shuttle that leaves every 30 minutes to the nearest subway station which was helpful. However, they don't offer any type of assistance figuring out what trains to take and how to get to where you want to go. If it weren't for our iphones, we would have been lost. The staff was friendly enough, but not overly so. The room was nice, great view of Manhattan at night time. The pictures of the exterior are very misleading. This property is located in an industrial area and the "free" parking is all on the street.

I stayed at this hotel from 3/13-3/17 & I must say that this hotel is truly the best thing in New York area. The front desk was very helpful especially Nita. The rooms were a great size also. The area is a little isolated but it offered local restaurants around. The continental breakfast was awesome. Even though I wish they offered the waffle maker everyday & they need two of those because the lines get long. The shuttle bus was also awesome, takes you to all the places you need to go(Locally). Had to walk from the train station one night but it was only a fifteen min walk, but the shuttle last until 11pm. Now one thing I wish they could change is the wifi in the rooms & also the cable channel's, The cable channels would be lovely for males since it offers 6 ESPN channel. Females need a variety of channels. I wanted to make a recommendation, since many people are tourist I recommend that you download HOTSTOP on your android/iphone, it will definitely help you to get around town. HOTSTOP gives you all the train stop & streets to get off if you dont know where to go. But I Highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed a few nights here as I had business in Long Island City and it was close to my client. This is a nice relatively new Fairfield Inn, 12 stories high but not many rooms (tall and skinny). No wi fi in rooms, but the cable internet worked fine but very slow unless you want to pay for it. The rooms was clean and the bed was very good. As this is an urban hotel the street noise starts about 6 AM. While the hotel is fine, the neighboorhood leaves something to be desired. It is mostly industrial and there are no decent restaurants or bars in walking distance. The breakfast was nice, with waffles, and all the typical Fairfield ammenities. Parkling is also a problem as the hotel has no real parking lot. I was able to find street parking behind the hotel, and fortunately my car was still there every morning. This is a nice hotel for business in the area but not for a family vacation

Took a bit to find, as my nav system did not understand the 52-34 (52 lead us to a warehouse about a mile away). The surrounding area here was not much better, but some civilization, yet surrounded by warehouses and broken down areas. Free parking consists of 9 spaces in front, 8 in a garage, and the rest on the surrounding streets (sketchy area). They do offer a free shuttle to select destinations (subway and a few nearby select restaurants). Free breakfast is also included, consisting of cereals and yogurt, make-your-own waffles, bagels, and refrigerated egg sandwiches (adequate for us, esp for free). Staff were very friendly and courteous.
The room was spotless clean, standard size fare. The ONLY negatives about the room was a very noisy bathroom fan (not critical to use), and a shower that necessitated a call to the desk to see how to turn it on (a sign in the tub telling you to pull down on the faucet aerator would be helpful).
There is nothing nearby, and due to the premium on parking spaces, I did not want to lose my space, so we shuttled and subway'ed everywhere (probably not a bad thing - took 40 minutes to get into downtown Manhattan from the hotel).
All in all, if you need to be in this area, for the price, decent place. But the area and minimal off-street parking (yet free) are not welcoming.
