“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

It's a very nice business hotel - close to Manhattan, quiet and the views of Manhattan are spectacular. The room I stayed in wasn't large, but I didn't expect huge sizes and I was very happy about the stay. The neighborhood is a bit industrial, but what do I care :).

Room Tip: High floor, Manhattan view.

To find a hotel for less than $100 a night, 1 subway stop from Manhattan, and Manhattan views to kill for, would be almost impossible. Well, not really. This is all at this property. It is clean, fresh, smart, warm service, killer views and almost in manhattan.

The surrounding area is gruffy right now, but it is going through a gentrification, with many hotels and condos coming up. However, it will take a while before the area is fully spruced up. But, except for the walk to and from the subway, you will not spend any time in the area, because there is nothing else to do here. No restaurants or any other activity. In fact, it is best to hop on the subway (2 blocks away) and get to Manhattan for a whole different world.

My room (1501) was smallish, but was made to look spacious with a wall of reclining glass windows floor to ceiling, facing the bed and looking west towards midtown Manhattan. Yes, you will also look over the rooftops of the adjoining neighborhood, but you will have to pay some price for this value oriented place. I look the new Holiday Inn style of a shower stall instead of a tub, far more practical and modern. The new Holiday Inn beds are very, very comfortable, firm and cushy. The staff that greets you at Reception is one of the happiest lot I have encountered in a while, all cheerful and helpful.

Wifi was a bit of a problem. It was inconsistent and at times dropped completely and was very slow.

But overall, if you can snag a room here for less than $100, you will be lucky!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floor with a Manhattan view.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent review of our property! We appreciate the time and consideration in choosing our hotel compared to Manhattan. You will find value outside of Manhattan as the outer boroughs are increasingly becoming a destination for guests traveling to NYC. Our property is close to major airports and offers the convenience, as you explained, to get in and about the city by a short metro ride. Our area indeed is gentrifying and there are a few nice restaurants along side our hotel. Our very own Brazilian Restaurant offers an authentic style rodizio BBQ which I suggest trying next time your in our neighborhood. I do apologize, I wasn't sure if you contacted anyone for the Wi-Fi issue as we have staff available to assist you to ensure you have a better experience in the future.

I will pass on your kind feedback in regards to the cleanliness and friendliness of our hotel to the men and women who really make our hotel the best in NYC. Thank you once again for staying with us!

143 cities Reviewed is quite impressive, and you have helped 359 guests with your useful tips. Travel Safely and I hope you continue to have great experiences everywhere you go.....

Sincerely,

There is not so much to add to all the raving reviews about this hotel.
Considering the unbelievable savings comparing to any Manhattan hotel, I would definitely stay there just for the price.

But there is more to this hotel than an attractive rate.

First of all, very friendly and helpful staff . If you need a good restaurant in the area, or some advice on transportation – they are always there to help you.

Second, a very clean and spacious room. ( We had one with a small balcony – not so much of a great view, but still a nice feature). Door to ceiling windows, a lot of light.

Third, and for us some of the most important features that nowadays many hotels ignore: a small real frig ( not the one with the mini bar temperatures), free Internet and a coffee machine.
It happened so that a weekend before staying at the Holiday Inn L.I.City, we stayed at DoubleTree hotel on Lexington Ave in Manhattan. Not only the rate was much higher – than on top of that you had to pay for the Internet, no refrigerator, a tiny room and no coffee maker. There was even no comparison.

As for the parking, it is a very safe neighborhood. Instead of paying the garage rate, we just parked off the street for 2 nights. No problem.
We did not eat at the restaurant, but it was packed at the night time .
We sent couple friends to stay in this hotel and they were more than happy with it; we definitely will be back.

This hotel is located a block and a half from a subway stop and will get you to Times Square in no time flat. If you're lucky enough to get a city view room, you'll be bowled over by the nighttime view. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is limited parking on site, but there is a parking garage next door, where you pay Queens, rather than Manhattan rates. Overall great value for the money.

We recently took a vacation to NY, and staying at this hotel was a great choice! Upon our arrival at LGA we took a cab ride to the hotel for only 20 bucks! We walked in the hotel where we were greeted by Elizabeth, who was amazing. Super friendly and helpful since it was our first trip to NY. She explained the subway system, where to get on/get off for our hotel. She had great recommendations for things to do in the area and was a great source of information.
Elizabeth was warm, friendly, and very hospitable, as was everyone else at this hotel. We'd definitely recommend our friends/family to stay here.
