Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by timbo57 Not worth the view
First let me say the view was all that was advertised. Unfortunately it was all down hill from there. One of two Treadmills in the gym was dangerous with a loose belt and the other inoperable. The overall ROOM noise level was atrocious and we were awakened at extremely early hours from the incessant beep beep beeps of nearby ongoing construction. By the end of our stay we were exhausted from a lack of decent rest. The staff were medicore at best in terms of proffesional courtesy and at times actually seemed annoyed at our presence. Our prior visit to NY City was at the Holiday INN Midtown at 57th street. We chose LI City Manhattan View Holiday Inn this time because of the promised view and proximity of the hotel to the city. Proximity was not a major issue, the subway was only a block away, but the value for what we paid was not delivered. Bottom line: We walked away from our HONEYMOON experience feeling that what we paid per night was a poor value. Although we made the best of it we definitely should have stayed at the Midtown Manhattan location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by otelo Good Service not so nice location
The name of the hotel is somewhat misleading because you can only see Manhattan from a few rooms. The neighborhood is not so nice and though the subway station is very close, I didn´t feel comfortable coming back at night time (and I come from one of the most dangerous cities in the world...).
You really need to do something about the pillows. Those are not pillows, those are cushions.
Staff were very nice

Staff and Service was probably the best I have experienced. Clean rooms and a great location. The only negative was parking; don't plan on parking at the hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by B12345 Parking not provided
The room was excellent, however, note that parking is not included, and the parking around the hotel fills up fast. I had to park somewhere else every noght of my stay, which was a huge inconvenience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Irishlad New York City at its best without the high price or small room
Fantastic bargain, great Manhattan views, ease of transportation in and out of Manhattan (one block from the subway) and extremely friendly and supportive staff. I stay at this site several times per month for business and I will stay no where else...once again, fantastic!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suskath Comfort and service
The room was very comfortable. I appreciated having WiFi at no extra cost. The restaurant was amazing we had a wonderful dinner and breakfast at a reasonable price. It would have been nice to have a cafe or something for lunch and snack. Because our stay was immediately after hurricane Sandy we were limited to staying in the hotel but the hotel stay wa very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SienaBruno Great hotel for a Midtown conference
I stayed in this Holiday Inn while attending a conference in Midtown Manhattan. Ideal location with very easy access to the city, plus very nice rooms and a decent restaurant. A bit lacking in other spaces in which to sit and relax, however. Also, not quite sure where one gets the Manhattan "view". Staff were great in all respects. I recommend the hotel highly and will stay there again if attending another conference in Manhattan.

Great value - comfortable, clean, spacious room. Quiet at night. Would certainly return! Friendly staff, good restaurant facilities. Would have like to have made more of the gym and pool but maybe next time! Subway two minutes away, getting one to Manhattan very quickly. Local ambience okay, though on fringes of industrial estate-type location. Good deli and diner two minutes away also. Defnitely recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbyrd AWESOME VIEW
Very nice hotel with an awesome view. The room we had was very big, clean, and comfortable and all of the staff we met was great. This was our first time to New York, so commuting took a bit to firgure out, but the hotel is within walking distance of the subway station so that was convenient. We started in Philly, and rented a car and drove to New York, and the only down side of this hotel we encountered was parking. Very limited parking space, but there is a garage close by. I felt the room was a bit pricy, but most everything in NY is. The staff, location to the subway, and the view, helped cover some of the sting of the cost for sure. I would definitely try to stay here again if I'm ever back in NY.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thom Great staff and the best views
We stay at the Long Island City Holiday Inn at least once a month, but we used to come every week for about a year. The location and proximity to the subway have totally converted us from staying In Manhattan. And it's much better to look at Manhattan rather than look at wall when you stay on the island.
We complained about six months ago about the constant problem with your television channels going blank and the food in room service. Since then the television has been working properly every time and the room service breakfast has improved dramatically. Your staff continues to be one of the best we have experienced. Last weekend my sister and her family of three plus two exhange students from Spain stayed at your Hotel. We had to cancel joining them at the last minute. They had nothing but raves for the hotel and staff. The front desk really helped us out to place them in 1601 and 1602 for the true experience. And they made it all happen and we can't thank them enough. See you soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by C007 Very good hotel with excellent service
We stayed here for the US Open. While not in the luxury category we had everything we needed and the service was always friendly and helpful.
The subway station is a block away and trains take 15 mins to Flushing Meadows or 20 mins to Time Square.
We were mostly out but had a very nice dinner in the restaurant and used the PC and Printer provided free of charge.
Very reasonable for a quality hotel in NY.

Staff was very freindly and helpful. Comfortable bed and great service. Room was very clean. Very close to the subway to get into the city. Nothing to do in the area. Not many places to eat but the hotel. I would stay at this hotel again.

My wife and I currently stayed at your hotel. We were on our honeymoon and never been to New York and you had a gentlemen by the name Luis Maldonado that assisted us in everything. Luis was very helping and went above and beyond to help us and make sure our stay was pleasant. Luis was very helpful when it came to asking directions and he went as far as to recommened things to do and places to eat. We are hoping to visit New York next year on our anniversary and hope to experience the same excellent service.

The rooms were clean, comfortable & nice. The front desk staff was confused they over charged my card two days after I checked out. I called & I was told it was their mistake & the money would be returned & it wasn't. I had to file a dispute with my bank. The housekeeping staff are stingy with the towels & wash clothes. I asked for fresh towels & wash clothes the next morning & they sent up one towel & one wash cloth for four people. I needed two rooms & I booked two rooms but when I arrived I was told only one was ready therefore I had to wait until 4 pm for the other room. Next, time I visit that area I will not chose to stay there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John89 My overall experience.
THe staff at the Front Desk was unfriendly, cold, not hospital at all and they did not wish me a Happy Easter or say a Good morning greeting on Sunday morning when I checked out of the room. All the ameneties worked great including the A/C and a very clean and HOT shower. The marble bathroom was a beautiful touch. The sliding doors on the balconies need to be updated. THe outside windows were clean. The TV worked Great. The parking system NEEDS to be improved. I booked way in advance and STILL I was NOT guarranted a parking spot. I am a priorty member and i stayed on a deluxe floor, I should of had a parking spot SAVED for me anyway. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give the overall hotel a 6 rating which is Fair and can be improved to a GOOD rating if these problems I stated are addressed in the appropiate manner.

This hotel is quite new. he is located in quiet and nice neighborhood in queens, close to manhattan. he has a pool that works mostly on weekends. the breakfast buffet is exellent and the staff is very nice. the only problem is that in the winter the rooms are very cold and the air conditioner system is insufficient. not much facilities but enough for relaxation and travel vacation. i recomend for this hotel.
