Good location and room was VERY large. Quiet and comfortable. Check in/ out staff were disinterested but bar/ restaurant staff were lovely and friendly. Very small restaurant and lobby for the size of hotel. No buffet breakfast - all a la carte. A lot of airline staff staying. A bit dated and needs a facelift, but clean enough. Good aircon but windows need a wash!

The location is perfect. Hop the train to Manhattan right from the hotel. Restaurants and shops in the Skywalk off the lobby and the main restaurant is good as well. The room is huge and comfortable, but the bathroom is on the small side.
