Long Island City lodging

We are a group of 5 adults looking for hotel options in Long Island City for a 3-night stay in early May.

Looking for a hotel quite close to Manhattan I have narrowed it down to these options:

- Hotel Vetiver

- Howard Johnson Inn

- Best Western Plaza

- Country Inn & Suites

- Wyndham Garden

Are any of these in a better or worse area or more or less favorable location considering the distance to subway lines to and from Manhattan? Which of these would you choose?

The Vetiver and Country Inn are in the better locations for subway but none will have comfortable room for 5 in one space. The Country Inn has rooms with 2 queen beds but the Vetiver is a bit nicer. The othr options you list are not close tothe subway. Poster GreenWhiteBlue has written as collwos

"The usual Long Island City hotels that we recommend based on the convenience of their locations are the Verve, the Vetiver, the Country Inn and Suites, the Quality Inn on 40th Avenue, the Holiday Inn Manhattan View, the Fairfield Inn and Suites Queensboro Bridge, the 4 Points by Sheraton Queensboro Bridge, and the Comfort Inn on Crescent Street.

Not quite as convenient, but possible, are the Ramada, the Wyndham Manhattan View, the LaQuinta (which is really in Sunnyside, and not LIC, near the 40th Street station of the #7 subway), and the Quality Inn on Queens Boulevard (which is really in Woodside, near the 52nd Street station of the #7.)

The hotels with Long Island City addresses that are not as well located (either because of distance from transportation, or noisy/ugly/ inconvenient /questionable site) are the Days Inn on Queens Boulevard, the Z, the Best Western City View, the Fairfield Inn Manhattan View on Van Dam Street, and the Queensboro Hotel."

Thanks. We have booked two rooms at Vetiver, one with two queen beds and one with one queen bed.
