Holiday Inn LaGuardia Airport

Reviewed December 30, 2007

We recieved a gift certifcate for a Dinner cruise that leaves from the other side of Shae Stadium and with it a night at this hotel 5 minutes away.

Our impression of the hotel and people were all very nice, but our daughter would've slept with the large GINGERBREAD HOUSE that they had on display in front of the restaurant if she could have!

The stay was fine, but her memory of that and the smile on her face for us was a gift in itself!

Warning: Beware of thieves that work for Holiday Inn! My husband and I were asleep at 2:30PM in the afternoon after checking into the Holiday Inn LaGuardia at 3:30AM that morning. We suddenly heard someone quietly trying to break into our room! He had a homemade device that he had slipped under the door, guiding it to unlock both the latch and the door itself. My husband grabbed the device and told me to call the police and the front desk! The man started yelling “give it back, give it back!” When told the front desk had been called (for some strange reason I couldn’t get through the switchboard to call the police) the man took off. Seven minutes later two people appeared. The only reason we knew they worked for HI was that they were wearing uniforms with NO NAMETAGS. They told us first that the person breaking into our room with a homemade device was one of their maintenance men; then they told us that he was trying to check our room since the maid had not cleaned it. “You should have put the ‘Do not Disturb’ sign out” the Head of Housekeeping stated. Now it was our fault the man was breaking in! They never once questioned the maintenance man about where he was trying to break in, why he didn’t call the room first, why he didn’t knock, or why he didn’t check with the front desk before trying to break into our room. This could very well have been an inside job, with the Head of Housekeeping, the Front Desk, and maybe even the manager, who refused to talk to us as we were leaving the hotel, not feeling safe enough to stay there. This is very true! They won’t respond to my e-mails or telephone calls. This is the only way I can warn potential guests. Stay someplace else if you don’t want your vacation ruined by thieves!

Cleanliness:
It's great in this department. The rooms, sheets, & showers were clean.

Staff:
More than willing to help. Provided subway maps which were invaluable to get around New York. Asked for additional towels and 5 min later they were brought up. They'll call Taxi's or Limo's for you at a moments notice. The shuttle was timely with all our experiences.

Location:
Well... this is a double edged sword. It's very close to New York City. Just catch the Purple #7 Manhattan Bound Train at the 111st stop. It's about a 5-10min walk from the lobby. Once you get on the train you'll be in Grand Central or Times Square about 30-40min later. Plenty of time to admire all the spray paint on the buildings.
The walk from the hotel to the subway station is very ghetto. It's a poor, minority community in upper Queens. I probably wouldn't stay out too late, the latest we came back was 10pm. No one bothered us. Subway fare is $2, or pay $24 for a Metrocard and use it unlimited for a week. Buy the card at the Subway station.

Cost:
Got it on Priceline for $100, beat that in NYC.

Conclusion:
If you want to visit New York on a budget and don't mind the long train rides, stay here. It's clean and the staff is friendly. Next time I'll probably stay in Manhattan just to save time.

First of all, we flew into LGA. After leaving baggage claim, we used the nearby phone to call the hotel about the shuttle. They said one would meet us outside in a few minutes and it did. While driving we didn't know what to expect but we did like the view of Shea Stadium. Upon arrival and entering the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised: It was beautiful. The lobby was clean and the check-in staff was quick and accomodating. When we reached our room, we were happy that it was also clean and a good size for two people. (1 dble bed & sofabed). Although the bathroom was a little small with no counter space and the view wasn't great, it was expected for the price.
There was a station nearby (in walking distance). It's at 111 St/Roosevelt. You have to purchase a MetroCard. After a day of activities we returned the first evening after 11pm. We ordered a hot & delicious pizza from the local Papa Johns (didn't find good NY pizza). That night's rest was wonderful and warm w/ the bed covers (no heat necessary).
The next day we chose not to order breakfast, but to start our shopping early. All I can say is Chinatown (Canal St.) & SoHo! You must go the top of the Empire State building at night. There you can see the city (& the 5 boroughs) and the Statute of Liberty lit up.
Check out was easy at 4 am. The hotel shuttle left at 4:20 to take us to LGA. It was a wonderful trip & first experience in NY

My 11 year old daughter and I stayed at this hotel this past weekend. We were there to see the Mets but alas, no playoff game to be seen. The hotel is 5 blocks from the 111 stop on the 7 subway. We walked there every morning and called the hotels' shuttle to pick us up when we came back at night. Be forewarned: the neighborhood looks a little rundown compared to most upper class neighborhoods in America. The area is primarily hispanic and the local groceries only take cash. I think the stations at 111 and Shea are manned 24 hours. The hotel was pricelined for $100 a night plus tax. The hotel has a nice bar, didn't eat at the restaurant. The pool has a lifeguard and is only open when he is there. Also, the hours are pretty early in the evening. Would not stay anywhere else if I was there to see a game. The lobby was nice and clean and so was the room. We took the subway both ways each day and only slept about 5 hours a night. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was small but clean. I didn't hear noise from the other rooms around us (the crowne plaza in queens was bad about that). We never felt threatened or unsafe at any point while we were walking back and forth to the subway. The shuttle drivers were the gem of the hotel. They were willing to take you on an errand if they weren't busy. The front desk staff namely a person I won't name would tell us they weren't available but call back and speak to another person and the shuttle was at the station 3 minutes later. The drivers also offered to take us to a local restaurant but we decided to order in. There was a local chinese place that delivered that was wonderful. Would definitely stay here again. Not a 5 star hotel but clean and a good value. Feel free to contact me about this hotel or our trip.

Booked this room for a one-night stay (we landed at Laguardia after midnight and just needed a room before traveling into Manhattan the following morning). Paid $120 or so for a double on Hotwire -- for that price, room was a steal! Clean, small but served its purpose, lobby is nice and free airport shuttle was very convenient. Front desk staff was accomodating and helpful (though be careful if you ask for a car into town in the morning -- price is not always what they quote you!). Directly across from Shea Stadium, just about 2 miles from the airport, and view from the higher floors is very nice. Would definitely stay there again for similar price ...

There are few reasonable options as a business traveller in NYC. Try sorting for a room on Tripadvisor in NYC for less than $200! The Marriott was available at $329 which I personally can't spend for any Marriott. After an extensive search I found this property. My contract rate was $255 per night. After taxes, you are @ $300. Keep that in mind. Your $330 rate at a competing hotel will be $400 when you are done. I wouldn't call this hotel a value, but it is less expensive than most of your options and is clean, with a good location. One of the pluses is the restaurant and lounge. The food is very good with a varied menu from sandwiches, pizza and pasta. I had a pizza, but everyone around me was happy with their food. The bar can get a little loud or perhaps I am getting a little old!:)

Business Center is downstairs, and the internet connection was very good too. Front desk staff was very polite and efficient. The room itself was standard Holiday Inn. Bathroom was clean, new shower head. Bed was firm but comfortable and made with comfortable linens.

I have no problem recommending this hotel.

This property is $25 dollar taxi ride from JFK, and I understand they have a shuttle to LaGuardia.
