My wife, my 15 yr old son and myself stayed at the Z for three nights on Easter weekend. We usually stay in Manhattan when we visit NY but this time decided to try something different, the Z hotel in LIC, an area I had heard of but never visited. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The room was a good size for the 3 of us (we had a Deluxe King suite) and the view was breathtaking. The free shuttle to midtown is a great advantage. We parked the car on the street for 4 days (free parking in the area) and only used the shuttle. The drivers were very nice and polite. Actually, the whole staff was really nice. The breakfast is ok but for 10$, in NY, nobody can complain! Note that the wifi is absolutely free and with a 15 yr old with us, this was essential!!! For us it was a reaaly good experience and we will be back for sure next time we visit NY.
