Convenient to subway station and provided easy access to all of New York City. as first time visitor to New York City, the Best Western Plaza was a real deal, financially and location. Would stay there again on next visit to New York City.

We were impressed by the friendly, efficient service of the staff, the overall cleanliness, room size and breakfast offered by the hotel. The area doesn't look pretty, but it is safe and relatively quiet, and only a short walk to the nearest subway or bus station. It's ideal as a base from which to explore Manhattan, Brooklyn etc and is... More

I have stayed there a few times and have recommended it to my famliy. Hotel is nice and clean. Train station to Manhattan is 4 minute walk away. Train ride into heart of Manhattan is about 12 minutes. Great place for those that want to be close to Manhattan but also want to be budget conscious. Rooms are comfy and... More

We looked at staying in Manhattan but prices were cheaper here and the hotel is 3 mins away from the 21st Metro Station that gets you into Manhattan in minutes. The area is semi commercial so not the prettiest but the hotel is clean, beds were comfortable and offered free wifi (patchy in places) and continental breakfast which can get... More

I stayed at this same hotel before and the service was bad. I returned a second time only because the prices are affordable. But this second visit, I must say was very good. I was very satisfied with the overall experience. I would stay here again.

Company employees stayed at this hotel for over 40 room nights in May/June while doing a project in New York. It seemed to be in a good location with parking. However each day as the staff changed so did the hotel policies. Free parking at check-in but yet on certain days with some employees they insisted there was a charge... More

Good value for the money, subway station near by that took us to Manhattan in about ten minutes. No restaurants nearby exept subways that provided us with breakfast every day. The breakfast is a typical american hotel breakfast, nothing for us scandinavians. The breakfast eating area was also very small and crowded the one day we went to try the... More

This was our first visit to New York City, and we found this hotel to be reasonably priced in comparison to other hotels. The staff were very pleasant, and the hotel was clean and welcoming. However, both elevators were very slow. Breakfast is extremely busy, and it was difficult to get a table, although there are two eating areas. There... More

Booked it for just one night. Loved the fact that you can just take the F train a block away and be in Central Park 2 stops later. They had breakfast, that was good.
