“Amazing hotel, with amazing staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

This hotel was awesome! The staff was so friendly especially Elizabeth and Mekil! They always greeted you when you came out of the elevator and walked in. The hotel was super clean, it had a very modern feel to it. The hotel was in a great location the subway station was a minute walk, and only two stops from Manhattan. I definitely recommend this hotel and ask for a room looking at Manhattan the views are breathtaking!

My dad and I stayed in this Hotel for two weeks during summer 2014. The area around the Hotel isn't the nicest but the Hotel itself is really good! The Rooms are being cleaned properly everyday and they have everything you need included(very nice soft beds, fridge, TV, Air conditioning) The Hotel Staff is very friendly and helpful. There are at least four different metro lines going about 200m from the Hotel so that is a huge Plus as you only need about 15min to Times Square.
The breakfast buffet in the Hotel is very little but it the bar and the main restaurant are good. If you are traveling from Newark Airport it will cost you about 130$ So I would recommend taking the train or get a limo what is still cheaper at 110$ ;-)

All in all we enjoyed our stay in the Holiday Inn Manhattan View and we would recommend it for everyone no matter wether Family or Solo.

Room Tip: Well all the cheap rooms are located in the lower Floors so I would recommend the suites with the ac...

We spent five nights in a king balcony room. The room seemed a little "tired" with stains on the carpet & the only armchair. The balcony, only one chair again, technically had a view of Manhattan (uptown, none of the famous building) but a power station was the main feature. No tub but good sized shower. A/c seemed hard to set for all night, & NY is hot & sticky in August.
The district is semi industrial; didn't feel threatening but not very attractive & interesting. The main reason for staying at this hotel has got to be that the Subway is only two minutes walk away.
At over US$260 a night it seemed to me expensive.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your time and feedback regarding your stay in LIC. I apologize and hoped we could have made your stay a bit more enjoyable. The hotel staff are ready and able to assist you should you feel at anytime, the room appeared not up to standard, needed an extra chair or a simple room move to a better location, could've changed your experience. The views are wonderful even with the Raven's Wood Power Plant in the distance which adds to the NYC skyline. The area continues to improve both with more retail and restaurant locations and residential properties. I wasn't sure if you ventured into some of our great cultural institutions and lovely outdoor spaces? However, we certainly understand we are not in Manhattan but the convenience to there is what is also important. Should you find a way back to NYC I would like to ensure you are well looked after. Please contact me at rbianchi@himanview.com. It will be my pleasure to have you return. As you travel abundantly, your feedback is very helpful. Thank you and travel safely.

My Dearest Thanks and

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights recently and loved it! I had stayed here a few years back, and nothing has changed. Being IHG members we wanted a holiday inn hotel close to the centre but to avoid to ridiculous NYC prices, and this fits the bill perfectly! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are spot on and the facilities the hotel provides are perfect. Rooms are trendy, clean and have all the amenities you would expect. The hotel is in a brilliant location, only a quick metro ride into Manhattan (metro station only around the corner), but far enough away to avoid to hustle and bustle - and at great nightly rates this hotel is a perfect stop for a New York City trip! We will definitely be booking up for a third time on our next visit to the big apple.

Room Tip: Request a room on a high floor, and with a Manhattan view. You won't be disappointed!

Arrived very late, fast easy check in. Front desk staff was pleasant. Hotel is nice and up to date, rooms are small but overall clean and comfy. Not too many restaurants surrounding as far as i could see, but we took the train into Manhattan which is easily accessed from the hotel. I would return again.

The Holiday Inn Manhattan View is in a great location, within easy reach of the city, from the metro station round the corner. We had a very spacious and well appointed room on the top floor, with a whole wall of floor to ceiling windows, providing a stunning view across to Manhattan. You can watch the sun set over the Empire State Building and Brooklyn Bridge. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The only negative is the bar. What could be a nice space to relax in the evening, after a busy day in the city is completely spoilt by the VERY loud music, which makes conversation impossible and presumably is why it is always empty. Otherwise it was great and we would definitely stay there again.

I travel a lot with my job and I must say at first I was a little taken back with this hotel and not sure about things but Danny and Elizabeth made up for everything! I am a Platinum IHG member and they do recognize that. I was surprised with the parking arraignments with only 20 spots but they accommodated me (even though my car was hit in their parking lot I was still grateful that I didn't have to park in a junk hard on the corner). The location is awesome right by the subway, and the Brazilian Steakhouse Restaurant inside the hotel is to die for!! Absolutely amazing food and service for affordable prices!! The view from this hotel is by far the best value for the money! I will be on a stretch assignment in NY, and this will be my home away from home no doubt!!! Thank you HI!!!
