The Queens Center Mall, anchored by Macy’s and J.C. Penney, is less than a mile away. And you’ll be just 3 miles from Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, and Arthur Ashe Stadium, the main venue for the U.S. Open tennis championships. A quick subway ride will also take you to some of Queens' best-known ethnic neighborhoods: Grab a Greek gyro in Astoria, or enjoy a pint of your favorite Irish beer in Woodside. Astoria is also home to the Museum of the Moving Image, celebrating the art and history of film and television.
Italian and American favorites take center stage at Duke's Restaurant and Lounge, located on the Pan American's 1st floor. Duke’s serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is open until 4 AM on Fridays and Saturdays--perfect after enjoying a night in the City That Never Sleeps. Room service is also available (limited hours). If you want to keep up with your workout routine, just stop by the front desk and pick up a complimentary pass to the nearby Bally's Health Club.
After a day in the city, you'll return to a room with amenities rivaling those of many higher-priced Manhattan hotels. Set up your laptop at the desk: All rooms are equipped with wireless Internet access (surcharge), and complimentary Wi-Fi is available in public areas. TVs offer cable channels. Soundproofing and blackout curtains help ensure a good night's sleep, and hypo-allergenic bedding is available on request.
