We stayed at the Plaza for 3 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. Our rooms were adequately sized, exceptionally clean, and the mattress was exceptionally comfortable. The staff from the front desk (Stephanie in particular) to the housekeeping staff, to the breakfast room workers were so friendly that I had a hard time realizing I was in New York! Speaking of breakfast,... More

I have nothing but good things to say about the staff at this hotel. Everyone that we encountered was helpful and very nice. We arrived quite early (11am), after a full overnight flight and were exhausted. Originally, we were going to just leave our bags with the front desk staff, go for breakfast and get in some sightseeing, while we... More

Stayed in this hotel with family. Front desk staff was very nice, courteous and well behaved. The location is great, near the Manhattan attractions and two blocks away from the F line of subway station . Room size was big. Breakfast served was nice. Had comfortable stay.

Disembarked on 21st St – Queensbridge station, walked for a block. Arrived late at night around 11pm and was really tired. Thankfully, check in was a... More

Very good place. Great location, close to the subway which takes you to JFK and La Guardia and all the attractions of Manhattan. Hotel well maintained, clean rooms, serviced daily, very good breakfast but could be cheese or ham.

We selected this hotel based on the positive Tripadvisor reviews. The hotel is relatively easily reached on the Airport Train and then the MTA but is a little distanced from downtown NY. However for us, we are walkers, it was fine as within an hours walk was Central Park, Times Square etc. The hotel is clean and well appointed with... More

We stayed for two nights over Veteran's Day Weekend and our family loved the Best Western Plaza. Our room had two queen beds to hold me, my sister and her kids. There was a sleeper sofa in our room that was more comfortable than you would expect. The room was large enough for us to move around and certainly bigger... More
