If you don't like modern style and decor, this hotel is NOT for you. Industrial metal combined with natural wood, glass and chrome is the vibe here. The rooms are spacious and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We loved the views of Manhattan and where the hotel was situated - just beside and slightly under the Queensboro Bridge. We were able to easily Uber back and forth from Manhattan and really appreciated that our car was in a safe area at the hotel until we were ready to leave. There was a bit of confusion as to what amenities were in each of the buildings and where things were located, but we found our way just fine after asking the staff. We definitely felt like this was a hotel that appeals more to millenials, but, as baby boomers, we were very comfortable and would come back again.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a conference, and I would not recommend this place. Rooms are spacious but rather stark. As others have noted, the hotel is about a 15 minute walk from restaurants, metro stop and other resources.

Large bathroom but first time in staying at hundreds of hotels that a bar of soap was not provided. There is a dispenser by the sink but none in the shower.

Internet worked ok - but not rapid.

Front desk people were friendly and helpful. Gave me good maps and gave us a ride to restaurant area.

With So many housing options in NYC, I don't see this as a particularly attractive one.

This was a very unpleasant place to stay. Nothing worked either. No internet almost ever. The fan was incredibly noisy. And the traffic sounds VERY loud-- you are right by the bridge. The coffee was awful and to get good coffee you had to walk blocks. The gym was tiny. Really crazy location.

Sorry to be so negative but I would never go back.

Nice hotel with free parking and Breakfast with great views of Manhattan. Decent sized rooms with good bathrooms. Staff at hotel seemed nice and hotel offer free shuttle to local Subway stations. The downside is area doesn't seem so safe to be walking around at night ( hence the free Shuttle ). I visited midweek but with rooftop bar not sure how loud it'd be at weekend
