“Great for a Wedding at the Foundry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

We stayed three nights at the Z Hotel. A few key tips: 1. Arrive later in the day for parking on the street. This is located in an industrial part of the city and while there is on street parking, more parking is available after the workers are done. 2. If you are staying over the weekend, ask for a room on the highest floor possible. On Saturday nights, the downstairs restaurant area is transformed into a night club and the music is blasting until about 2:00 AM. 3. Walk two blocks to 21st where you will easily find a yellow cab. 4. Go to the roof top for an amazing night time skyline view. 5. This is the perfect location if you are attending an event at the Foundry which is two blocks away.

The rooms are small but then this is a boutique hotel. All rooms have a great view of the city. Having the shuttle was nice. The complimentary breakfast consists of pastries, toast, and bagels.

Room Tip: Would get a room on the 8th floor and up for quietness on a Saturday night.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

We arrived a few days after the hurricane, and the rooms were terribly damp. We red it on TripAdvisor that the rooms were flooded during the hurricane. (there's a hole under the doors)
We asked for room change, it took 3 days, to do that. The air condition was very weak. The rooms were extremely small compared to other USA hotels like Hampton Inn. Small bathroom.
The breakfast was ok.
Subway station is not close to the hotel.
We were happy about the complimentary shuttle to the city, but unfortunately many times we had to wait more than 30 minuted to arrive.
We were not satisfied with this hotel.
Country Inn & Suites NYC was much better!!! (for less price)

We stayed here in December last year and have an amazing stay. The staff were very friendly and laid back, the rooms were clean. The hotel is very cool and the views from the rooms are stunning. Its easy to get into Manhattan either by the free limo or the tube stop is just round the corner. Long Island city has some great American style diners and cool bars. We are coming back for New Year and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!!

I loved this place!!! The view is incredible and so was the staff, especially Nicole at the front desk. She went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. This was the first time in all my travel that I was approached in the lobby by the hotel owner asking how our stay was going!!! The shuttle was a great bonus. Would definitely stay there again!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor to fully enjoy the Manhattan Skyline at night!!

Pros:
1. Clean rooms.
2. Nice view.
3. Safe neighborhood.
4. Close to subways.
Cons:
1. No microwave.
2. Refrigerator only for honor bar.
Rooms are small but very nice.
Check your reservation to see if breakfast is included. There are some places enroute to the subway station where you can pick up breakfast if not included. Breakfast at Dunkin Doughnuts nearby was under $5 for breakfast snadwich and coffee.
Parking was not an issue- I got a rental car from Enterprise for one day to drive around along Island. Rental car is less than a mile away.
I arrived on a Saturday night and was worried about the night club. We stayed on the 7th floor and it was not a issue.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Z Hotel for two nights in March and had a nice time. As with any newer hotel, there were a few unexpected hiccups, but the very friendly and helpful staff never failed to take care of us. The rooms were smaller than some, but certainly not too small. The skyline views from the room and the roof are incredible. Would love to return sometime when the rooftop lounge is open. This was a nice alternative to the much more expensiVe Manhattan hotels.

The Z Hotel is a real gem. It's conveniently located in Queens/Long Island City and can be easily reached via various subways and short walk of just a few minutes. The Hotel also offers a complimentary transfer into Manhattan. The shuttle operates once an hour. Depending on how many guests want to go into the city, it's either a mini bus or a 1970s style black limousine, so you definitely travel in style :) It drops you off at 5th Ave / Lexington Street. The last shuttle to the hotel leaves at 11.30 pm.
The hotel is just a few blocks away from the water front, all rooms face Manhattan, so no matter which room you stay, you have a breathtaking view on the skyline.
The rooms are comfortable, clean and beautifully furnished and come with free WiFi and a flatscreen TV. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
There's a bar / diner in the basement which serves great and cheap food. You have to try the sweet potatoe fries!
There is also a roof top teracce which unfortunately was still closed during our stay.
This is definitely a great place to stay and explore the city.
