We stayed 8 nights at this hotel. Chosen because the price was good, the subway and close to Manhattan. I was in NY for my birthday and found a little gift and a card for me in the room. I thought it was really nice of them. I had hoped that we would get a room with the Manhattean view. Unfortunately they could not arrange this for us. But that's okay we really enjoyed ourselves. We have no regrets that we chose this hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, everything was clean and worked wel. Weak wifi, which is a shame but we did not complain as we are gone all day and only briefly using it. We slept wel, bed comfortable but in our opinion the pillows can be replaced. Two minutes walk to the subway N&Q lines and within 10 minutes you're in the heart of Manhattan. That's a big plus for us as we did not want to pay the price of Manhattan hotel's. There is a smal grocery around the corner, very convenient. The neighborhood is not bad at all. We felt very safe, even at night.
Next time visit we'll definitely go back to Holiday Inn LIC again.
