Best Western Convention Center Hotel

Hotel | "Best Western Convention Center"

The Best Western Convention Center is on the west side of midtown. It's 4 blocks from the Port Authority subway. It was quiet; the room was clean; the staff were friendly; and there is a free breakfast that includes more than continental items.

If you are taking a cab from the hotel to a local airport, they will call a private company, otherwise you need to stand on the corner of 8th Avenue to hail a cab.
