0.24km from Spring Shabu ShabuWe have lived near Flushing Queens for many yrs, long before Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel was built. We believe this hotel building started the rebirth/renaissance of this area. The hotel has provided a modern structure to accommodate our friends and families for more than 15 years or even longer. Before that, our quests would stay in Manhattan and then come back to Flushing to enjoy the restaurants. The #7 subway provides the shuttling for people to get to the museums, the bway shows etc. in the city, and then come back here for less crowd and less noise. Flushing neiborhood provides an oasis in the heart of Queens and this hotel stands strong as a landmark in Flushing. We have taken pride in Queens, the so called "another China Town” because the abundance of excellent restaurants in every corner. For that token we also are appreciative of this hotel for its foresight to build a hotel here putting Flushing on the map. We stayed here for one night on Christmas Eve/Day; and we have done that at Christmas time for the past 4 yrs. The hotel has two separate entrances, from there one can walk out to shops, restaurants, bakeries, and Chinese grocery stores on the Roosevelt Ave, 40th Road (the Food Street) and Main Street. In the morning, we would make the stop to "Won Jiaw" (on the 40th Rd, in Chinese it means "prosperity corner") where one can get the most delicious dim sums with complimentary soy milk/coffee. Right next to the hotel, there is a bakery, "ah pou lo" (the Sun God Apollo) where one can get a variety of bake goods, the bums, and the most delicious steamed buns. This time, we were upgraded to an executive suite; in addition to the lounge access, we were offered a buffet breakfast as well. We were treated so well, it left an impression with a brief stay. We are impressed with the consistent warm and wonderful greetings throughout the hotel, from checking-in to the parking level attendants, from the house keeping staffs to the services at the lounge. It was never a moment one feels overlooked, or feel that the hotel was too crowed or too loud~ This hotel should take credit for giving a new look, a rebirth for the old Flushing neighborhood. Sheraton LAG East is very much appreciated for knowing how to take care of travelers and customers as they were most important people for a few days. Like people, hotels do not get old without leaving a great history behind. In my opinion, this landmark hotel is made of good history, of respect, and of pride and charm.
