Z NYC Hotel
Ranked #10 of 33 Hotels in Long Island City
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Hotel Z is a great place to stay if you're looking for a good experience in NYC. The rooms are really nice and the view is phenomenal; especially at night. I could have stared out the window all night. Parking is free is you get a spot out on the street. The hotel also provides a free bus to downtown which is great. The only bad experience with the hotel is the resteraunt downstairs. A simple hamburger is $10 and that doesn't include fries or a drink. It didn't taste very good either. Also because of the huge windows that provide the beautiful view, everything in your room gets very dusty quick. But overall a great hotel for your money. You probably wouldn't find a better view in New York.

Fun place to stay at! 10mins from manhattan. Great, friendly staff especially Renita and Alex. Great rooftop view as well. My only complaint would be the lounge, menu was not extensive and the food sucks. Other than that its a nice lil get away from home!

We stayed at this hotel the weekend of Februray 15,2013. We had a room on the 3rd floor with an amazing view of the bridge! The room was vey clean and funky, the bed was comfortable, so were the pillows, and there was a window that could be opened which is nice for a room with out a balcony! The service was incredible, every person was ready and there to help with any request needed, Anna was great. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, great crepes!! We will definitely be back to stay at this hotel!!

Room Tip: This hotel is so close to Manhattan, its about a 5 min drive. We were on the 3rd floor great view!

My fiance and I stayed here back in October 2012. He wanted to splurge as we have never stayed in a fancy hotel before. At over $200 a night we thought this was about as fancy as we could go without breaking the bank. We were blown away by the decor, the room and the view, which were all amazing. However, we woke up in the middle of the night *freezing* and were told by staff that they were not allowed to turn the heat on but could give us extra blankets. Really?! I do understand it is state law but would it have been so much trouble to tell us when we booked the room so we could have come prepared or made other arrangements? I just feel that for such an upscale place (and upscale price!) with otherwise great service that this is a detail that certainly should not have been overlooked. I would recommend this hotel, but really only in the months when the heat can he turned on. The walls must be a little thin because it was 52 degrees in our room. Not exactly the comfortable stay we had envisioned.

The area surrounding the hotel is very seedy. No foot traffic, no restaurants within walking distance, very industrial.
Valet parking is almost 4 blocks away or you need to park on the street.

The lobby and check-in process was smooth. Upon walking off the elevator to my room, I felt a weird breeze because the one "wall" across from the rooms is a weird plastic "window" with a hole in it. Talk about cheap.. Not sure which idiot thought this up. But horrible idea

My room was small and clean. AC/heater didn't work very well. No premium movies just a few basic cable stations on the tele. And the shower was jus plain weird. There is NO shower curtain, not even a door for some privacy, jus a piece of flimsy glass that barely separates the toilet from the shower. So the shower water splashes all over the bathroom.

Also, you get charged for early checkout. I stay at a LOT of hotels and have never heard of this "rule". They charge $50, so lame.

Decided to try the restaurant downstairs, food took forever to prepare even though we were the only ones eating. Came out almost 20 mins later and tasted like it came from the school cafeteria.

This is a weird place, wouldn't recommend staying here

I stayed at the Z Hotel when I brought my daughter to NYC to drop her off for an early morning flight at JFK. The hotel was a wonderful surprise! The rooms were small, but very nice and modern. The hotel was very hip and inviting. And the view was spectacular!!!! The view of the Manhattan skyline, with the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building right there, was unbelievable!! We arrived as snow started falling, and it was so beautiful looking across the river at the skyline! I would like to go back and stay, just for the view! The staff was wonderful, very friendly and helpful in every regard. The price was great, considering you are so close to Manhattan. And also, the fact that you can park on the street for free is a big bonus, considering the hefty parking fees downtown hotels charge. The area surrounding the hotel is a little sketchy, but all in all, we thought the hotel was a great find!

Compact but very comfortable rooms with an unparalleled view of Manhattan, near several riverside parks (including Gantry State Park, which is a small gem) and other attractions. Area has many warehouses and other industrial buildings -- that part is not especially scenic, to be sure, but with that view (and very easy access to Manhattan via shuttle or subway, not to mention to other corners of Queens and Brooklyn) who cares? Also, a good price. I'd return to this hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms face Manhattan. Higher is probably better.
