Z NYC Hotel
Ranked #10 of 34 Hotels in Long Island City
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I stayed here for a week with my teenage daughter. I was looking for something affordable, with easy access to Manhattan, that would feel like a treat--so this little boutique hotel was just what we needed. The views of the city are AMAZING, the staff is very warm and helpful, and the decor and rooms were perfect.

The shuttle in and out of the city was always on time and always available. And, the few times we missed it (our own fault) and didn't want to wait for the next opportunity, the subway was only about a ten-minute walk away. In the evening when we were out too late to catch the shuttle, a taxi ride was pretty cheap, too (I think around $15?).

Standout features:
- The minibar is stocked with plenty of drinks and snacks, and reasonably priced.
- The bathroom, shower, sink and vanity are very upscale.
- The decor in the lobby and the rooms is fun.
- The staff at the front desk is friendly.
- The staff in the kitchen/bar area in the morning is helpful and nice.

The sound level on the upper floors might be an issue for some people. The night we arrived was a Friday and they put us on the 2nd floor. At first I balked and asked for a room on a higher floor, but he explained he'd put us there on purpose because there was a party on the roof, and that we could move later, so we stayed there that night and it was reasonably quiet. The next morning we moved up to the 9th floor. That night it was pretty loud, mostly just bass thumping, but we were worn out from our day's excursions so we slept fine anyway. Your mileage may vary.

Room Tip: As mentioned, the top floors can be noisy if there is a party on the roof.

This hotel does not offer any amenities like fitness or big rooms it is a good value for the money with the free shuttle service to manhattan every hour.

As mentioned the rooms are rather small and I really don't get, why one has a huge shower but the sink in the bedroom.

View is spectacular. Bar/restaurant is way to expensive. Rather go around the corner to 5 star.

A friend and I spent a week at the Z hotel. I have to say that there were no complaints. I was greeted and attended by a friendly staff. Shout outs to Samantha, Henry, Richard, and Rob! They are the best! They were friendly, approachable and always available to contact at any time. My friend and I became friends with them and by far they told us what bars to check out, they were on point with their information and their work ethic. The bar tenders of the hotel are also great people especially Derek. He was very friendly and always having us get great drinks. Overall, rooms were comfortable, staff are amazing, the hotel has a nice comfy lounge where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a drink. The hotel also provides a Z bus which drops you on 59th and Lex which is perfect for shopping. Thanks Amin, who drives the bus for telling us the hot spots at night. Amin is also very professional, approachable and friendly. Definitely check out the Z!

There were 11 girls in our group, all of our first time being in the City. We got to the hotel around lunch time and decided to go down to grab a bite to eat while they got our rooms ready. We found a GEM down there, her name was Maria! The food service was slow but we enjoyed that time chatting with her. She is a valuable asset to the Z Hotel. Her personality shined and she was so helpful and pleasant. The hotel itself was nice, shuttles were great, and the view was AMAZING! There is nothing to do or walk to around the hotel, but the can arrange a car service for you which was pretty reasonable for dining etc.

We def enjoyed our trip and all hope to return!

We spent 6 days at the Z NYC hotel and had the best time in NYC. This was my first visit to NYC and all i can say is that i will definately be returning to Z hotel. The staff were faultless. Friendly and knowledgable and very hospitable. I have to say a big thank you to them all for making this one of our best holidays ever and we were so sad to come home. Special thanks goes out to Henry, Shanice, Sam, Amine, Ryan, Alyson to name a few (apologises if i forgot anyone) who made our time at the Z hotel a pleasurable and fun experience.

The hotel was amazing, yes its outside of manhattan but you are only 10 mins away on the subway or via the free shuttle service provided by the hotel. The neighbourhood is mainly industrial but is generally pretty quiet, no taxi's hootering keeping you up all night. The rooms are very comfortable and have heated flooring as well. But the biggest feature about the room is the view you cannot beat it, its the best view of the skyline and even better if you go to the rooftop!

I can't wait to go back again!

We spent a pleasant weekend at the Z we came to NYC to celebrate a wedding. We were impressed by great service from the reception staff. There was a glitch with our room the first night, and they went out of their way to make it right. Our room on the 10th floor gave us a magnificent view of the Queensborough Bridge and Manhattan, especially at night, and even in a little fog! The bed was extremely comfy, with great pillows. The free shuttle is great - drops you in Manhattan at 59th and Lexington, or you can walk a few blocks to the subway. The location was perfect for a little walk to the Noguchi Museum as well as to MOMA/P.S. 1 (and absolutely do not skip the M.Wells Dinette at P.S.1!). Thanks again Z folks, we will return.

Room Tip: All rooms face Manhattan, and I think all rooms above the 3rd floor have some sort of a view! The h...
