Make yourself at home at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Long Island City, Queens. In no time you’ll be browsing modern art at the P.S.1 gallery and zipping to midtown Manhattan on the subway.
Our Long Island City hotels are close to the celebrated exhibitions by experimental artists and filmmakers at the P.S.1 art gallery. During the summer, the school courtyard is the scene of massive dance parties moving to the rhythms of popular DJs and live bands. After a gallery visit, head to the Vernon Boulevard dining strip between 50th and 46th avenues to grab a cup of coffee and a slice of classic New York–style pizza. Continue on to the riverfront Gantry Plaza State Park, which offers unobstructed views of the United Nations building across the East River in Manhattan. Relax in a lounge chair and watch as ferries, tugboats and even the odd jet-ski motor by.
Catch the no. 7 subway train, easily accessible from our hotels in Long Island City, to a Mets game at Citi Field and join passionate Queens locals in cheering on the home team. If the Big Apple is in your sights, guests at our Long Island City hotels can choose from five subway lines for direct service to Times Square, Central Park, Grand Central Station and Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan.
Book our Long Island City hotels to be minutes from Manhattan’s big-city attractions year-round. But you can also enjoy a slice of the Long Island City riverfront in summer. At Water Taxi Beach, you can wriggle your toes in the imported sand, buy a chili dog and a beer from a beach vendor and toast the sparkling lights of the Manhattan skyline.
