I have just returned home to Ireland after my Husband and I spent five days in New York. We stayed in The Holiday Inn, Manhattan View,Long Island City, New York. We arrived very late at night due to flight delays, and were made feel very welcome by the duty manager Louis in spite of the late hour .Throughout our trip the hotel became our home from home, due to the attention given to us by the staff, especially, Elizabeth, Rambo, Melissa and the Brazilian lady in the bar whose name escapes me at present. We would recommend trying the Brazilian restaurant at least one evening of your trip. The hotel is situated only one hundered metres from the Subway station , which is only two stops from mid town Manhattan. Just one word of caution, I thought all local calls were free but on checking out found that just applies to calls made to the immediate area and had to pay for calls which I made to mid town Manhattan . This cost approx five dollars for a call to a destination which is only two subway stops away. Otherwise , we had great time at the hotel, and hope to revisit. Well done all. Mary t Quirke-Carroll.
