I'm new to the neighborhood and to WLA, but I'm hoping this might be a good forum!
My parents are coming to visit in a few months, and are wanting to stay in a B&B (or hotel) walking distance to me at the Broadway stop. I had found an awesome network of B&Bs in Brooklyn, and thought maybe there might be something similar here in Astoria? Anyone know of anything? Or can you recommend a decent place to put some parents for the weekend? I'm afraid my couch doesn't quite cut it for them. :)
I appreciate any recommendations, thanks!
try using vrbo or homeaway.com, I use it all the time when travelling!
and airbnb.com is great
great site, I use it to pay my rent for the most part (oh yea, so Shannon, http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/195424 )
I think I had actually already found your room on the site and sent my mom the link! Thanks Kyra. :)
I don't believe there are any in Western Queens, but I would love to see the a B&B pop-up in Astoria, for the record.
I think the closest hotel is probably the one on Astoria Blvd around 46th St....it's a chain, although I can't remember which one! There are a few in LIC near Queensboro Plaza too. Neither really in walking distance, but probably the closest options.
I think that's a Marriott. Z Hotel is really hot, but DEFINITELY isn't walkable. The Holiday Inn is (surprisingly cozy and) a tiny bit closer (and more affordable), but also isn't walkable.
Awesome, thanks for all the suggestions! This is super helpful. :)
Astoria BnB on 49th or 50th Street and Grand aka 30th Avenue.
Very nice people and close to the goes that runs on Grand.
Have stayed there and it was good.
Never heard of that and live very nearby. Do they have a website or Facebook page? Curious about this place...
