“Great hotel for the budget conscious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

We had a great stay at the Hotel Vetiver (we pronounced it Veti-vay so as to seem fancy). For a New York hotel, it was very inexpensive, the wi-fi was reliable and fast, the breakfast was plentiful and included with the room, the rooms clean, modern and secure. The hotel is very close to the subway and it is a quick ride into Manhattan. We didn't encounter any problems (although the elevator is a bit slow but you just have to be patient) and would recommend it to others.

We didn't mind the lack of an in-hotel restaurant. There's a place called "Michaels Café" in the Sheraton just up the road that does a nice dinner, and an amazing sushi restaurant near the Subway entrance called Tokyo Sushi Bar. For a free breakfast, we were pleased with what the Hotel offered. If you want the best selection, go earlier in the morning - fresh bagels (the best I've ever had), yogurts, cereals, fruit and pastries. Sit outside for the best experience. Great way to start a big day of walking around NYC!

Room Tip: Note your preference for a view of the Manhattan skyline when making the booking. We asked when chec...

Hotel was very well located for the subway into manhattan 15-20 mins will get you where you need to be. Hotel itself was very clean and well kept, However having booked a balcony room we were given a room with no balcony with the proviso we could move 1 or 2 days later when one came available. We declined as we did not want this hassle. Then when we returned to the Uk the hotel had charged us another 1000+ dollars which was promptly refunded- Good Customer service, Overall hotel was excellent and I would recommend it, However we felt slightly let down we did nto get the room we requested.

My Stay at the Vetiver was one of pleasure. The staff was cordial and always had answers to my questions. The area around the hotel may look unsafe but it isn't. Just a minute form the Metro station. Breakfast is nice, not to much selection, but nice, coffee was great though. Room was good the view from the balcony is awesome too. When i got in the bathroom handle was kind of broken, no biggie, i went out and when i came back they had fixed it! and i didnt even said anything at the front desk! I highly recommend the Vetiver and i would most definitely come back and stay with them.

The hotel location is excellent, just 2 mins distance from subway..

Hotel rooms are clean and spacious.. The service is perfect..

Most important the staff is v cordial and friendly.

I had an issue with the agency through which I had booked the room, the manager at Vetiver personally took care of the issue with the agency and helped saved my money!

I would love to stay over again here, when in NY!

I enjoyed my stay very much. The room was very nice with a splendid view and morning sun. The area around the hotel is not too pleasant but it is safe. Importantly, it only takes a few minutes to get to Manhattan. The station is a quick walk away. There are nice restaurants and cafes if you take the subway the other direction further into Astoria. The breakfast wasn't that good but the coffee was great. In sum an excellent experience. I'll be back.

On behalf of the entire Hotel Vetiver staff, thank you for an excellent review!

We cannot express how truly delighted we are to see that you enjoyed our property! I am glad that you took notice of the view from your room. Our neighborhood is still being developed, it is by all means safe, however we are anticipating the arrival of new restaurants and shops on our street. I am glad that you also mentioned the stores just a few blocks further into Astoria, which boasts some cultural cuisine hot spots as well as some excellent free museums. I am also glad that you mentioned our complimentary continental breakfast. It is a favorite among our guests who want to grab a bite to eat conveniently before they get their day started.

I thank you again for sharing your experiences on TripAdvisor and we hope that you may come back again to visit us!

Kind Regards,

Brittney Mosley

The location of the hotel is perfect. Easy access into the city and queens. Extremely clean and excellent decor. The services were out of this world. The guest services were super attentive and very knowledgeable of restaurants and venues to visit. If you're traveling to New York and need a great place to stay, i highly recommend Hotel Vetiver! Do not forget to visit the cafe - if you're in New York, you must have a New York bagel.

Thank for reviewing Hotel Vetiver on TripAdvisor,

I am pleased to know that you were able to take advantage of our convenient location just one block from the subway into Manhattan. I am also delighted to know that our front desk agents were able to give you some insight on restaurants and sight seeing. Many guests stay with us with the intentions of being conveniently located to the subways so they may explore the city with ease. I am glad that your were able to take advantage of some insider tips! I love the suggestion about being sure to pick up a New York bagel.

We look forward to having you here again.

Kind Regards,

Brittney Mosley
