The hotel acted as a great base for our stay in New York. You can get to/from the airports easily - we got the Air Train from JFK which was about $7.50 per person and took about 40 minutes dorm the terminal to the hotel which is about a 15 minute walk from Queens Plaza and a short 20/25 minute taxi ride to La Guardia Airport which cost about $20. Transport into all the main attractions was really easy and fast using the metro which is less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel - you can buy one metro card which can cover multiple people and add credit, each ride is about $2.50 each way. If you are in NY for a longer period you can buy week passes etc. we used the no. 7 metro and Q lines for most of our trips.
The hotel in itself was what I had expected. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and average sized and we had a fridge and microwave. We booked a City view room and had a good view of Manhattan and the bridge across to it. There were no safes in the room but there were some located at reception. These were all taken during our stay but you could request no one entered your room. You also get free wifi which was really useful for booking our trips in advance. The free breakfast has a range of basic hot food, cereal, waffles, bagels and donuts - more than adequate for what we needed.
Overall I would recommend this hotel as a great base for your stay in New York.
