This hotel is CLEAN, SAFE and the IDEAL type of accommodation you're looking for when visiting New York for the first time or for the 10th time. It's a brand new hotel beautifully decorated with modern decor and fixtures and the beds are ultra comfortable with fluffy bedding not to mention their Bath & Body Works toiletries. I had a view of Manhattan on the 7th floor and it was incredible waking up to the skyline every morning.
The subway is a short 3-block walk from the hotel if heading into Manhattan or to any of the other boroughs. The subway is incredibly fast, safe and fairly easy to navigate with the help of a map, planning and front desk help if need be. Free shuttle service is also available to hotel guests. Also, free internet service to all guests who've brought their laptops.
Now, the REAL gem of this hotel is its staff team. They are extremely professional and their service is impeccable. The front desk team I dealt with (Danielle, Jennifer, William, Sean and Tico) were exceptional and had the answers and solutions to anything I needed or asked for including lost card keys, directions within Manhattan and early check-in. They were also very friendly with welcoming smiles, SMILES!!! (can you believe it?!) initiating conversations and overall, making me feel like I was at "home". Also, the complimentary continental breakfast was ideal complete with scrambled eggs, different selections of breads, pastries and cereals, fresh fruit and milk/juices/coffee/tea enough to keep you going right up until the lunch hour or later. The Breakfast Hostess herself was so friendly, warm and gracious I felt like I was talking to my best friend or a family member.
The Wyndham Garden Long Island City hotel is not pretentious nor does it have an atmosphere of "you-don't-belong-here-unless-you've-got-money-to-spend-in-our-City". It's a friendly hotel looking to host friendly people. It is ideal for families, couples, business people and solo travelers. When I return to New York, I'll be staying here. This is my home base.
