This was our first trip to NYC, so we don't know what other hotels are like in the area, but here's our opinion. We flew into LGA and took a cab, which was over $20, because there is no shuttle to the hotel even though they aren't too far away. The hotel didn't look as nice in real life like...

First impression - (negative). We had arrived after a long overnight flight and were on foot with 5 bags, trying to find the hotel in the middle of a news making thunder & lightening storm. We knew BWCVI offer a pick up service from the closest station, but she said it was not available anymore. We arrived after a while...

After calling and speaking to the front desk receptionist, I didn't even want to stay here. She was so rude to me on the phone, I couldn't even imagine what kind of service they have once you get there.

Ok for the actual price. Pretty Old but some rooms are slightly renovated. The short walk to the next subway Station is a Good Thing. When you stay in this Hotel you should also have a look in the Irish Pub right beside this hotel.

I usually like Best Western but this place was bad smelly and the breakfast was cold and served like it was for dogs. The smell of weed was always there when you entered the main lobby. I could write more but it would take to long

My friend and me spent a week in thia hotel over New Year's. Altogether the hotel is adequate. Arriving at 2am in the morning, we were greeted by the smell of marijuna in the lift and corridors. It was there for another day or two, but the smoking guest seems to have departed fairly soon. Our room was great, it...
