We are from L.I. , very experienced travelers, and now living in Austin, Texas. Hands down, we feel that the GC hotel is the best place to stay on Long Island ... for many reasons. 1) Location: If you want to visit NYC but not always be in NYC or deal with the noise and parking expenses of NYC .......

This hotel has beautiful charm it has a classic style unmatched. But it's beautiful decor is not what makes it special. It is the wonderful employees like Gabrielle at the front desk that make the experience magical. Gabrielle was so extremely helpful when we visited to celebrate my wife's first mothers day. We booked the reservation online and it didn't... More

For the money you pay, this hotel is definitely not worth it. You can't order room service after 11pm. They do have a snack menu available from 11pm until 6am. We called at 11:47pm and was told there was no food! Definitely not good service. We were starving and was told they had no food. What a disgrace.

This is a stunning hotel. I travel frequently for work, and typically I stay in less-than-amazing properties. This was a major exception. I am not sure how I got lucky enough to stay in this hotel, but I am glad I did. The rooms have been completely renovated, and still smell like fresh paint and carpet. The bed was incredibly... More

We spent our wedding night here and I was really looking forward to returning to this hotel with our children. The hotel is very nicely done and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.

In an area where there are few fine hotels, Garden City Hotel is as close as you may come. Yet even though it's handsomely "refreshed", it is an experience in frustration to stay there. By that I mean that the proprietors have overlooked some basic amenities, and have excuted others badly. The rooms are generally attractive and quite clean, yet... More

We stayed in a recently renovated room, so it was very clean and comfortable. The room still smelled of paint and varnish, but I don't think there's a way to avoid that with new materials. The hotel staff is really excellent, they're very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. I can't compliment... More
