Yes, this isn't manhattan. So, buyer beware, you won't find ladies walking their dogs in strollers wearing diamond necklaces noshing on patee. However, this hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and we were able to get one of the few parking spots in the garage. My family and I loved the convenience to the subway. It was nice to come out of the city to a quiet room and get a good night's sleep. Pretentious people judging the people who live nearby apparently have bigger issues, so don't let those reviews sway you. No, it's not an awesome neighborhood, but there's no need to assume it's in any way violent/ghetto. My husband got an awesome sandwich from the deli nearby and the people we engaged on the street were respectful and friendly. I travelled with my husband and two young sons and never felt unsafe. The room was clean, well appointed and was totally worth the extra few bucks for the manhattan view. Free breakfast in the morning was a big bonus and Firoz (the breakfast attendant) was awesome to my boys. Fair warning: the breakfast is usually very busy, but not many other hotels had the breakfast included option as part of the room rate. I would definitely stay here again and have already recommended the hotel to family and friends as an alternative to staying in the hustle and bustle of the city. The "F" train took us everywhere we wanted to go and within minutes. One complaint was the housekeeping. They were reluctant to replenish items that you used, example: toilet paper, laundry bags, hand soap. Also, the only ice machine that had ice was in the breakfast room which was very inconvenient for our 8th floor room. Other than that very happy that this worked out for us. Nice job, Best Western Plaza Hotel!!
