“Perfect stay in an always incredible New York City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

There really is no need to search any further if you are looking for a place where to stay in New York! It may not be located in Manhattan, but why spend more to be there if you can stay here - just right over Queensboro Bridge - for much less and still be only three metro stops away from 5th Avenue and 59th Street and six metro stops from Times Square? We had booked through Expedia two rooms with queen size beds for six nights. At our arrival, and during all our stay, the staff at the Holiday Inn were always very kind and helpful! A special mention has to go to Luis at the reception who went out of his way to ensure that the rooms assigned at our check-in were of our satisfaction. The hotel is literally only 20 meters from the metro stop 39th Avenue in Long Island City and we always felt safe in the area. The hotel's location meant that we were in Manhattan in minutes! What a perfect stay in an always incredible New York City.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I recently stayed in the Holiday Inn Manhattan View whilst taking part in a conference in New York. The reason why I didn't leave a 5 star review is due to the internet connection. In the lobby the internet worked okay, but I was staying on the 4th floor, where the WiFi was extremely slow and unreliable. On the first day of my stay it was fine, but for the remainder it was slow and you couldn't have more than one tab open at a time, which made doing work from the hotel room difficult. At one point, the page wouldn't load at all and I kept having to refresh it. It was very frustrating.

Aside from this, everything else was excellent. The location was perfect; Getting to the centre is a short subway ride away, and the subway itself is a 3 minute walk from the hotel. Straight across the road from the hotel is a wonderful deli/shop, and a 3 minute walk away (next to the subway station) is a Greek-run diner, so you won't be stuck for services if you don't want to eat in the hotel. I didn't eat in the hotel myself, so can't comment on the food. However, the bar is perfect for a quiet drink in the evening.

The staff were all lovely and so friendly, I can't compliment them enough. The room was a good size for New York, and had the usual facilities...a television, tea and coffee making facilities, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, mini toiletries, air conditioning. It was very comfortable.

To sum up, I would return, however, I'd hope the WiFi connection is improved by then.

The Holiday Inn Manhattan View in the Long Island City, New York is a nice neat hotel. The rooms are nice and clean and the property itself is good. It's a small hotel close to Queens and only 2 minutes walking distance from the Sub way station (39th Avenue, Ave Be Station) which makes it very convenient. Stayed there for only two nights and then had to move out to another hotel when we extended our stay for more two days as the hotel was over booked. Our overall stay for the two nights was good.

Room Tip: Choose a higher level room to have the better view.

My wife and I spent 7 nights here. Our first time in New York. It was a relief to get here after staying in a less than reputable hotel in Jamaica the previous night. The staff were amazing, letting us check in early, giving us directions hints and tips for getting around. We loved the brazilian restaurant below and fell in love with Astoria. Even better our friends from philly came up and stayed in the same hotel. Thanks for the great stay.

Without going into details, thanks go out to all the staff, especially Danny S., Elizabeth T. and Daisy. The gentleman who brought a roll-away bed late in the evening (twice, as the first one wasn't suitable for an adult-sized teenager--she ended up sleeping on the floor) deserves a shout-out as well. We were assured that the first roll-away would be replaced 'in the morning' but we had to call upon return in the evening to have it replaced. Sadly, the replacement roll-away wasn't much better than the first. This was the only negative of the entire stay. We had a lovely room with a fantastic view and a balcony. Our room was super-quiet. The (non-roll-away) bed and pillows were very nice and those of us in a bed slept well.

The hotel room and public areas were in great condition, very clean and attractive. It's a short walk (a block or so) to the N or Q lines of the subway, and maybe 4 stops to Central Park and 6 stops to Times Square. A cab from LaGuardia cost us $21 (including tip) and a hired car return trip was $30 (with tip). We ate breakfast in the restaurant one morning and it was good. The Brazilian steakhouse dinner seemed like a good deal, but we weren't at the hotel during dinner time. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to NYC.

Room Tip: We had a nice view of Manhattan from the 11th floor.

Came back to NYC for the second time in six months. First stay in Maspeth was horrible.... But this was amazing!

We were welcomed and helped from the moment we walked in. Nice to see a fellow Brit on the desk too! Location was a 5 minute stroll to Queens Plaza and from there 10 minutes to Times Square.

The room was lovely although we paid extra for a balcony room and the view was terrible. Staff were really helpful tho and moved us to room 1508 which had an amazing view across to Manhattan. The area around the hotel is peaceful and we felt safe. There are schools, delis, cafes locally and it feels like a happy community.

The breakfasts in the hotel restaurant were lovely although a little expensive. The bar was really busy and a lovely place to escape to last thing at night.

Only gripe was that we booked a cab to Newark airport to come home and were told by hotel staff the fare was $90 incl tolls. When we got there we had to pay $140. Other than that this was the perfect stay and we will come back! We all now love New York!!!

Great location and value. My room was well appointed by NY standards. Had a rather large corner room with a balcony and a nice view (by ny standards). Very bright and airy. More importantly (as I spend little time in the rooms) was the staff. Rambo at check in greets me with a smile and by name. I've been here a few times both on business and pleasure and she always makes me feel welcome. I'm actually a long time SPG member and they are only two blocks away but I chose to stay here. Too bad I didn't know the pool was no more though, it's why I wanted to stay here instead this time, but Rambo and Janette (bartender) made the stay worth my while. janette was great, very responsive and attentive! If you're not already, become a IHG member, free drinks at happy hour and aside from that they really make you feel welcome. The icing on the cake is the $20Churrascaria (Brazillian Steakhouse), can't be beat! Good meats, an unbeatable price,free drinks, free wifi a prime location (to access NYC) makes this a must stay for me. Hope you get to experience the professionalism of Rambo and Jeannette when you visit!
