We stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions for weddings in Long Island in August and in October 2012. This seems to be a popular place for overnight stays when out-of-town people are attending events in the area and for wedding parties. The area really does not have a lot of choices when it comes to hotels. Garden City itself is an uninspired and relatively newly-developed Long Island town with shopping malls. The hotel is a good 45 to an hour drive away from Manhattan so a car is necessary in the area.
In one of my stays at this hotel, we were charged a little over $200 just for the night's stay, which we thought was too steep for a hotel that is really only a step or two above a budget motel. There was also a baffling note written in a yellow post-it by the bed that noted that the sheets and the duvet cover have been cleaned (Of course, when you stay at a hotel you would expect these to be changed and cleaned at all times! I don't know why that note was in there in the first place. It was just odd (and quite disturbing)!)
We did not experience any other issues with the hotel or the staff but then again we only stayed for a night on both occasions. There is a hotel right next door too called Hyatt Place which also seems to be popular with bridal parties and guests for Long Island weddings.
