Z NYC Hotel
Ranked #10 of 34 Hotels in Long Island City
Reviewed April 7, 2013

My wife, my 15 yr old son and myself stayed at the Z for three nights on Easter weekend. We usually stay in Manhattan when we visit NY but this time decided to try something different, the Z hotel in LIC, an area I had heard of but never visited. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The room was a good size for the 3 of us (we had a Deluxe King suite) and the view was breathtaking. The free shuttle to midtown is a great advantage. We parked the car on the street for 4 days (free parking in the area) and only used the shuttle. The drivers were very nice and polite. Actually, the whole staff was really nice. The breakfast is ok but for 10$, in NY, nobody can complain! Note that the wifi is absolutely free and with a 15 yr old with us, this was essential!!! For us it was a reaaly good experience and we will be back for sure next time we visit NY.

this hotel was a very good one, i spent 5 days in this hotel also the view from the rooms is SO GREAT and most of it cleaned and good room service , also the shuttle bus is good but i take a very little of passenger.but the most unlike thing is the location of the hotel , it's too far from subway and from city centre.

Hotel was an excellent value. Rooms were large by NYC standards and had some interesting features such as deep tub, heated floors, very modern design...
Location is a little odd, but once in the hotel views from room are scenic. Parking nearby about 4 blocks away for <$20 per night. Shuttle back and forth to city every hour and cab fare reasonable if you don't want to wait for shuttle. Overall very good experience, would stay there again.

We've spent seven days in this hotel. We were on the 3th floor and also had a nice view on the skyline. The room was more than big enough for us and the bed is just great! We we're here in march so didn't experience any noise at night. Most of the times we walked to the metro station (Court Square/23th str) : it was only like 5 minutes walk and the neighbourhood is very ok, we have never felt unsafe as two women walking the streets at night in this area. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpfull as well. I liked the free international calls as well! If we would go back to NYC I would reconsider to stay in this hotel again, you get very good quality for the price you pay!

We spent 10 days at Z New York hotel in Long Island. The view was just as amazing as we hoped it would be!.
The transportation to and from Manhattan worked well, we experienced a few times that the old official Z hotel limo couldn´t hold everyone of us waiting to be picked up, but there was always another car dispatched quickly to pick up the rest of us waiting. At more than one occasion we were "upgraded" to a modern stretch limo :)

We got a room on 8th floor. Amazing view. The room is small but is well designed and decorated. We had everything we needed.

-Free Wi-Fi
-Free phone call, domestic AND international.
-Great bed
-Fair prices for the mini bar
-Basic breakfast

The negative experiences were

-Very loud music from the top bar thursday-saturday. We were told that the hotel worked on the problem with the sound so we hope it has improved since July 2012.
-Our mini bar didn´t get restocked after the first refill, which we thought was a bit odd.
-The A/C didn´t work proberly in our room, and died completely on our last night.
-The staff at the reception. They were all very polite and friendly BUT not very efficient. I made 2 complaints about the A/C(it was very hot in our room, 30 degrees celsius outside warms up a small room pretty effectively) but nothing ever happened. The last night before our departure we didn´t sleep at all because of the heat in the room as the A/C completely stopped working.

The only real problem was the A/C not working proberly. Without this issue we would love to stay at the hotel again.

This hotel is only two years old. The beds are extremely comfortable. The rooms are small as is all rooms in NYC but big enough. We stayed on the 9th floor and the view was great. Shuttle service was very convenient and always on time - and free. The internet signal was spotty and mostly could not get a good signal in the room. But service was free. I read other reviews about the food being bad. I thought the food was good. The drink specials were also good. Price for food was very reasonable. All in all a very good hotel on the up and up.

Room Tip: All rooms look at Manhattan. I'd suggest the higher the better but any floor above the 2nd floor...

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.
