I was looking for someplace cheaper to stay outside of NYC that would not be awful. That's what I found here. It is very close to the George Washington Bridge, so easy access to get to the city. I even walked across the GWB for fun - it was nice, but a long walk. I couldn't understand the person at the front desk when I checked in. I asked him to repeat himself a couple times, but to be honest, I'm still not sure what he was saying. But the staff did all seem nice. There was no TV remote in my room when I arrived, so I had to call the front desk that night when I noticed. They said they would send someone with a remote - within 10 minutes I had it. Pretty clean, but not perfect. Bed was very comfortable. Shower pressure very good. Couple of times during the night, I heard the neighbor's door slam, but it didn't keep me up. I did not hear the traffic at all, as other people have noted. Fridge worked fine for me - I had brought a couple drinks from home. Put them in when I arrived; when I got back that night, they were plenty cold. Breakfast was ok. Waffle maker, oatmeal, cereal, toast, bagels, pastries. Cramped tables was the only part I didn't like, but they make do with the space they have. Free parking is definitely a plus. Was it the best hotel I have ever been in? No. Did it serve it's purpose? Yes. less
