Reviewed 21 November 2013

This was our first trip to NYC where we did not stay in Manhattan (the prices were insane the week we were going) so I was a little apprehensive of how convenient this hotel would be, but the price was right. The location was great, very close to 2 subways lines so even with the crazy weekend schedules you could always find your way back. We had pretty late nights, walking back around 1am and the short walk was safe. The room was lovely: comfortable bed and pillows, balcony with great view of Manhattan, and I was very pleased by the breakfast. I actually need to call them and find out where their bagels were from because they were delicious! Seriously. Pleasant surprise! The staff was always helpful.
We had one small incident upon check out with poor communication with the front desk regarding transportation to the airport. I really didn't want that to ruin what had been such a great stay so I called and spoke with the manager to explain the situation and she was able to resolve it to my satisfaction. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to get a better value than Manhattan prices and I definitely hope to return again.

Room Tip: The rooms are a little noisy so request a quiet side if that bothers you. Our views were amazing bu...

We stayed at the contemporary & attractive "Hotel Vetiver" from 22oct-01nov13, more precisely in a "Condo-room" (with kitchenette, microwave & refrigerator) ... a really nice & spacious room with a balcony & partial Manhattan view ... it had all necessary amenities : bathroom with shower & toilet, flat screen tv, Ipod dock, phone, safe, free wifi ... and it was well cleaned every day. We also had a daily complimentary breakfast at the hotel, so very easy in the morning. The hotel is idealy located, only one block away from the subway station "39th Avenue-Beebe Av." & after only a short ride, you're in the middle of Manhattan. The staff is very kind & friendly, very professional & are always there for you when having questions or special needs. We really enjoyed staying at this hotel & when we're visiting NYC again, we'll surely stay there again.

Thank you for reviewing Hotel Vetiver on TripAdvisor!

I am just delighted to see that you enjoyed your Condo Room with Kitchenette. It is by far my favorite room type that we offer. I am so happy to know that you enjoyed all of the amenities in your room as well as our complimentary breakfast in the morning.

I am also glad that you took advantage of close location to the metro station. It truly is the best way to get around the city. The staff is happy to know that you found them to be professional and kind. We hope to see you again soon and thank you again.

Kind Regards,
Brittney

This hotel is situated right next to the 39th ave station (QN lines), which makes it very easy to get to the major city attractions. The hotel itself is situated in Queens, next to the Queensboro bridge. We found a couple of great restaurants nearby, and everything you need is close to the hotel -- pharmacy, liquor store and food market.

The room itself was really tiny, but had everything we needed.

PROS:
Good location -- we could actually see the queensboro bridge (along with the skyline) while sitting in our bed. Gorgeous view!
Friendly staff -- don't hesitate to ask questions. Altough the hotel didn't have a restaurant, they were able to recommend good ones nearby.
Cheap price -- we paid 280$ for 2 nights taxes included.
SUPER clean

CONS:
Tiny tiny room, but as I said, we did not pay much so the room was perfect.
No fridge in the room.
The hotel itself is pretty well-decorated, but everything looked unfinished to me. Not sure for how long the hotel has been opened for though...
If you want to eat in the morning, make sure you get there first. I arrived at 8:30, and there was no croissant left :( no big deal, but still.

Overall, good hotel, good price! I will definitely go back the next time I visit NYC.

Friendly staff, good - spacious rooms, comfy beds, good location very near the subway which brings you in 15 minutes to Midtown/Times Square. Breakfast was fine and sufficient (i've seen less in more expensive USA hotels). Small point of improvement: it would be great as the European travellers would certainly prefer some bread/toast over the bagels. But that's only a small detail. Last but not least: excellent value for money: 110€ per night in NYC (about 140 dollars) is bargain for a 3 star hotel like this. All in all excellent stay in Hotel Vetiver!

Recommended, perfect hotel for a citytrip to NYC.

Stayed here for one night, got a free upgrade and awesome view of the city. Elevator is a tad bit slow, but whatever. Comp breakfast is convenient, nothing crazy, but nice and simple. Super nice staff, thanks Marquis for a quick check-in! Only caveat for me were the bed sheets --- kinda itchy on my super sensitive skin, maybe i'm just used to a higher thread count :-/ ??

All in all, Worth it! would stay here again and again.

+Good locations, amazing view on Manhettan from the room, relatively low price for living not far from Manhettan. Friendly staff.

We was enjoyed our stay at Vetiver hotel and will recomend it.

Room Tip: Higher floors have an amazing view on Manhetten
