“Great Value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stayed for a week in a holiday journey walking Manhattan during all day. New Hotel in an excellent location for the price compared with Manhattan hotels (we payed around U$ 170/night). Nice rooms with Queensboro Bridge view, good restroom. The next Subway station is 2,5 blocks away. I recommend to take E train: The next Station is 53th and Lexington (next: 53th and 5th Av, etc.). They have a very good Shuttle service (almost every half of an hour during the day) to all near Subway Stations that we used a lot. A MUST DO: walking by the Promenade in Gantry Plaza State Park which is 6/7 blocks away from the hotel and you can see the superb Midtown Skyline....

Room Tip: We stayed in a King Room on 3rd floor facing 44 Rd with Queensboro Bridge. Very Nice ;)

Staff was clueless. We check in at 3:30, and they tell us the room is not ready. We wait in the lobby and sit as other people come in check in, and go right to their rooms. Manager says they had a bunch of late checkouts and there was nothing we could do. I'm sorry how is that my fault!!!! We had all our bags, and things to do in NYC. All the while, the staff didn't know what to do because they lost someone's baggage. I ask what's going on here, and they tell me they are still cleaning the rooms, 30 additional minutes later. Never again staying here.

First time NYC visit for our family, stayed on 4th floor in room with 2 double beds for 8 nights. Sufficient room for 3 adults but tight, thought as you will be out mostly its not a problem. Quite clean, feels and smells new. We found the area to be quiet safe, its in an industrial area though a 5 minute walk has you in the vibrant Hunters Point neighbourhood with many restaurants and bars. Hotel bar and restaurant is now open. We used the subway extensively and you can call up to 10.30pm for hotel shuttle pickup thought its not much more than a brisk 5 minutes walk from the E subway. We found the front desk staff very helpful if you have an issue, especially Dante who is a customer service star. As for value we paid about 50% less than a similarly appointed Manhattan hotel so would recommend if you want to experience a bit of the real NYC. So glad we trusted the positive reviews on the hotel. Definately will be back.

Great price compare to other hotels around the area. Free shuttle to/from subway stations.

Found a water bug as big as my head and scared the hell out of my wife. Showed the picture to front desk. Didn't even get moved to another room. I guess you get what you pay for so no complaints.

My gf and I booked this hotel for 4 nights for our first time in NY because it was much cheaper to stay in Long Island City than Manhattan. Since most of our sight-seeing and excursions were in Manhattan, transportation was very important. Here are some information for those who are planning to stay here and explore Manhattan.


THE HOTEL

Our room was on the 7th floor with a nice view of the bridge and parts of Manhattan.
The room was very clean and from what I read, big for NY standards.
The bathroom was smaller than we liked and we had little room to put our things on the counter.
The LCD TV works and our bed was very comfortable and big.
The front desk was very helpful in answering all our questions and showing us around.
There is free WiFi and a computer with a printer downstairs which we used to print boarding passes.
There is no breakfast which we didn't mind because we wanted to eat more of the different types of food that NY had to offer.



TRANSPORTATION

The taxi fare from La Guardia airport was around $20.
I told our taxi driver the hotel was near 44th Ave and 9th St and he found it.
To get to Manhattan, we used the hotel shuttle to take us to the subway E every morning.
The subway gets very hot and getting to and from Manhattan takes no longer than 30 minutes.
Walking back from the subway to our hotel at night took about 10 minutes and was safe.


Overall, the hotel is nice and quiet. The front desk is very helpful and you can ask them anything. For those who don't mind walking and using the subway, it's a lovely hotel for those who want to explore Manhattan.

With a group of 23 people from The Netherlands, we stayed at the hotel for 5 days. The rooms were OK, but the service was very bad. Especially breakfast was a chaos; no flexibility and because of other groups, we were 'sceduled' to eat before 7:30 (!!). Many reasons not to return again !

Jeffrey R, Manager at Wyndham Garden Long Island City Manhattan View, responded to this review, October 18, 2012
We would like our future guests and groups to know that all groups require a specific breakfast time and that poor treatment of our entire staff was experienced. Our staff had been screamed at and had things thrown at them because of inappropriate behavior of this group and we encourage you to contact us for proper testimonials from Experience Group leaders who understand how group breakfast works.

We are confident that you will see in our previous review that we are very keen on giving our guests and groups the best treatment and most amazing possible service we can. We are very much care for correcting problems and errors that may occur and encourage you to account for all our amazing reviews.
