“Great Value and Accomodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

After many searches and comments read on Tripadvisor we chose to stay from Apr.22 to 28,2012 at this Holiday Inn. We were so happy on arrival after a short taxi ride from LaGuardia Airport to be greeted by friendly, helpful front desk staff who could not do enough for us. Our room was cozy and comfortable, spotlessly clean, bright with a balcony. The subway was a few minutes away and only 6 or so stops to Times Square. Only dissapointment was the dining room with slow service just okay food. However down the street by the Subway Station is Zante Deli with excellent service and food open for breakfast through dinner. We ate there many times during our stay. We highly recommend this hotel for comfort, immaculate, affordable accomodation. We also appreciated it is a non smoking hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor with Balcony not a great view, but quiet.

Before our trip it we had trouble picking a hotel. Although we wanted to stay in the city everything was booked by the time we was ready. I came across the holiday inn it kind of felt "too good to be true" type of deal. As we arrived we was pleased with the cab ride only being 15$. Let alone the MTA being sooo close to hotel. The Front desk was so friendly and accomadating. We asked if we could upgrade but unfortunately there was nothing available. We were told to check back in the morning. We then made our way up to 1003. As we entered our room we were soo pleased we said forget the upgrade!! Our bathroom was beautiful. Although we did not have a view for manhattan we still manage to see some being on the 10th floor. We loved our vacation that we waited sooo much for after our long adventures in the city our cozy bed was waiting for us. Everytime we decide to come back. Holiday inn will be our choice! Thanks for everything.

Missed my flight out of JFK and Hotwire turned up the Holiday Inn Manhattan View. Property is very clean, staff were tremendously helpful and attentive. It's a new building and everything is very clean and my room was well appointed. View from my 14th floor was stunning. Price was very reasonable too.

(Ate here: http://www.psari-restaurant.com/ - which was a few blocks away - was also superb. Seems pretty close to the subway and this is only a few stops from midtown - if you want access to Manhattan without the prices, this would be a great place to stay)

This hotel was a perfect start of our honeymoon at the eastcoast.

Very friendly front office staff ( thx joe!) with a lot extra things for my gold pc-status and nice balconny view room.

Rooms are clean and new. The metro station is nearby and we walked to the 5pointz building.

Only small remark was the noisy ice maker, next to our room but we're looking forward to the end ofmay for another 2 nights in this hotel to close our honeymoon!

The hotel is in great condition. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff is friendly and ready to help. The location is good, 3 blocks for the subway. In 10 minutes you are in Central Park.

The price for New York is excellent. I will come back. The restaurant is just OK, but in New York who eats at the Hotel.

I stay more than 60 nights a year in hotels for business, I spent few days/nights in Long Island City to visit a customer.

First time that I was staying at a Holiday Inn!

The Room
The room was a King size bed room with a balcony with "view" on Manhattan. Very clean, spacious.

The Location
The hotel is located a block away from a subway station with direct access to Manhattan (trains N and Q), in about 15-20 minutes. Very convenient to eat in the city. I am not aware of any good restaurant in the direct neighborhood.

Pleasantly surprised by:
- The great front desk service

Unimpressed by:
- The Internet connection, too slow for business users.
- The restaurant attached to the hotel. It's not necessary good, and breakfast is pricey (USD17 for a tiny buffet breakfast).
- Malfunctioning ATM in the downstairs area (annoying when the cab does not have a working credit card machine, and you have no cash, and you stayed awake for 24+ hours)

Although I spent good nights there, and location is excellent, I will think twice before coming there again just because of the Internet slowness.
