AAA Inspector 592: If anyone asked, “Why stay in Long Island City?” the answer lies at the splendid outdoor lounge area here. It’s all about the view, of course.
Next to the subway, this comfortable, contemporary hotel boasts some real killer Manhattan views from the stellar outdoor lounge. Rooms have the standard modest-size layout the brand is known for. A handful of suites expand the floorspace and design sensibility; those rooms up the ante but are worth it for families.

AAA Inspector 19: Wow! The lower lobby did not prepare me for the enchanting views of Central Park or Midtown that I could see from the main lobby and restaurant areas.
Expect rooms with contemporary luxury and cosmopolitan Asian flair. Its location in the Time Warner Center affords proximity to shopping, entertainment and some of the city's best restaurants. Guest rooms are not overly spacious but are well designed and have a sophisticated style. The fine marble-clad baths are roomy with sleek, modern enhancements. Some rooms have stunning park views. Some guests and couples may prefer the rooms that face the Hudson River as they have a slightly different layout, including even larger bathrooms with a window over the deep soaking tub.
