We recently spent 2 nights at the Wyndham Garden Long Island City Manhattan View Hotel. The hotel is clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and we got a good rate on the room in comparison to options in Manhattan. Our room was on the first floor--right next to the icemaker. We heard a bit of noise from that. We had a view of a parking lot and an adjacent brick building. I imagine some of the rooms on the upper floors on certain sides of the building might have a decent view of the city.
There are several subway stops within walking distance, but it's a bit of longer walk. The hotel does offer a free shuttle service to and from the subway stations at intervals throughout the day. We utilized this option when we were leaving the hotel.
There are numerous restaurants on Vernon Boulevard within a 5 - 10 minute walking distance from the hotel. There was also an Italian restaurant on the lower level of the hotel. We would have gone there for breakfast but were told that they are in a transition process and not currently open for breakfast. There's a small coffee shop next door which offers a few inexpensive breakfast options. I wasn't clear on the room service options. The literature stated there was room service (from an area restaurant?) but there was no menu provided.
The subway ride to Manhattan was probably less than 10 minutes--not bad at all.
The accommodations were nice enough--but our particular room was not in a good location. Downside was the walking distance to subway stations, industrial feel of the immediate area around the hotel, lack of hotel bar and room service. Pros were the friendly staff, the price, and the short subway ride (once you got to the station). I'm rating it 3 stars.
