A fabulous hotel close to Manhattan & JFKPosted Dec 17, 2014
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful. The delicious buffet breakfast was a good start to each day. The hotel is of the standard of a 4 stars hotel.
Cons: Some hair conditioner for the bathroom.
Location: This is a great location. Bayside is a wonderful NY suburb in the Boro of Queens.
We had a perfect stay here at the Aria Hotel. This hotel had everything that suited us. We would recommend this hotel. The hotel offers affordable accommodation close to Manhattan. The LIRR train station is a comfortable 15 mins walk away. There's a Starbucks close to the hotel. The hotel is located approx. a 20 mins drive from JFK.

Good Spot, Good PricePosted Nov 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Service was 3/5, Breakfast was pretty weak (but at least it was included), the facility itself was aged, but the rooms were okay... The pillows were uncomfortable.

Outdated and smoky, but clean and comfortablePosted Nov 19, 2014
Pros: It was in a good location and the room, bathroom, and bed were comfortable and clean. Staff members were courteous.
Cons: They should get rid of or segregate "smoking" guest rooms. They should keep the (noisy) refrigerator out of the room and only offer it upon request.
Location: Bell Blvd. is within walking distance, meaning there is plenty of food and drink nearby. It's also close to the Long Island Expressway.
The hotel was a bit outdated, as others have mentioned, though it seems that they attempted to update the bathrooms a bit. The room and bed were comfortable and clean. My biggest complaint is that the hotel allows smoking inside. It wouldn't be so bad if the smoking rooms were on separate floors, but they're interspersed with the non-smoking rooms meaning the hallway to get to my room was filled with smoke. Now, I used to be a bartender, but even so I still got congested and teary on the way to my room. Plus, all the smoke follows you when you open your door. The hotel needs to get on board with the rest of the country and ban smoking inside the rooms (and outside the front door). Keep the smoking salons if you must. The smokiness is important if you're meeting people, interviewing, etc. as it gets on your clothes and can make for a horrible first impression. The lobby wasn't anything grand, just a small little room with some places to sit. Even on weekdays, the breakfast isn't put out until 7:30am so I wasn't able to experience it. However, I was reminded a few times that they had breakfast so it seems to be something they're proud of.

Good place to stay in this neighborhood.Posted Nov 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was a short stay,but I was comfortable and would stay here again. The room was clean (the carpet could use a shampoo), the bed comfortable, etc. The breakfast was good offering pretty good choices. The service staff on the floor was very accommodating.
