Book our Long Island City hotels to absorb iconic views of the Manhattan skyline and intriguing contemporary art at P.S.1, all close to five subway lines running directly to midtown Manhattan.
Our hotels in Long Island City, Queens, are a short walk or bus ride from the P.S.1 art gallery, renowned for showcasing experimental artists, musicians and filmmakers. P.S.1 is affiliated with New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, home to masterpieces by Picasso and Van Gogh. When you visit the Museum of Modern Art, a short subway ride from Long Island City, your ticket provides free entry to P.S.1 on the same day. Guests at our Long Island City hotels enjoy unprecedented views of the midtown Manhattan skyline from the riverfront Gantry Plaza State Park. Claim a lounge chair directly facing the United Nations building across the East River. Kids can play on the grass in the shadow of Long Island City’s vintage neon Pepsi-Cola sign. A quick ride on the no. 7 train whisks you to Citi Field, where you and your family can cheer on the home team, the New York Mets.
Our Long Island City hotels are close to Vernon Boulevard, between 50th and 46th avenues, lined with affordable restaurants, cafes and bars. During the summer at dusk, you can head directly to the riverside Water Taxi Beach, a seasonal bar and burger shack decked out with fake palm trees and imported sand. Kick back with a chili dog, fries and a beer before joining the local crowd dancing to DJs and live music.
Book a room at one of our Holiday Inn® Long Island City hotels in the summer for the rocking P.S.1 Warmup Saturday concert series or in winter for speedy and direct subway access to Manhattan’s glittering holiday decorations at Rockefeller Center.
