While searching for a hotel in Long Island City, we looked for a hotel that was in an area that was accessible to the subway, had a breakfast provided, had options for parking our car, and had unique charm. Hotel Vetiver provides all of this. There was a big mixup with our reservation which was made through Travelocity. Although the hotel was unable to provide us with the room that Travelocity sold us (because it no longer existed, and they were booked to capacity) they did make an excellent effort to rectify the situation. We were very pleased with the resolution.
While at the hotel, we felt safe, slept well, and really enjoyed the breakfast (yogurt, fresh bagels, fresh fruit, juice/coffee/tea). Everything was pretty well stocked--we were there at about 8:30am. We parked our car in a nearby U-Haul parking garage, which was about 2 blocks away, and cost $20 (cash) for the overnight. The street parking was filled up. We felt a bit more secure being in the garage anyway.
As another reviewer stated, there is a deposit required on the room to cover any expenses that you may have while you are visiting. We were there for one night, and the fee was $50. This is refunded upon your departure, if you pay cash. This is what we did. If you put it on your card, it takes a couple of days before it is removed. Don't misplace your receipt!!
