This is excellent
Reviewed 23 February, 2020
I had mild doubts when we booked this from the UK. Doubts soon dispelled.
It is excellent. the staff are wonderful. The eating areas are good. The menu caterers for all - three veggies in our party.
Ask for a view room as the aspect across Manhattan is glorious.
Having stayed in the City before I much more appreciate a 7 minute walk to the tube and then 10 minute ride into Manhattan.
Comfort & Excellent Customer Service At A Great Value

Hats off to the Holiday Inn L.I. City for an excellent stay. I’m a tour manager for a professionally touring band that was gigging in Brooklyn that evening. We weren’t able to check in before our show and ended up getting stuck in the city quite late. A quick call to the front desk and the attendant there was completely understanding of my situation as a tour manager, staying at his post until 2AM in order to check us in. Excellent customer service!
This Holiday Inn also offers parking, which is an absolute blessing whenever you’re traveling in NYC. Unfortunately, our van was too big but there was a lot right around the corner that was not only accessible all night, but manned 24-hours and completely secure.
The rooms themselves were spotless and clean with two queen-sized beds that knocked me out as soon as I laid down. As promised, the hotel itself overlooks the entire city of Manhattan, which was also a really cool little perk.
A quaint little diner right around the corner from the front desk offers some really neat NYC vibes and makes a great breakfast. Perfect place for your morning coffee while people watching.
I will definitely be bookmarking this one for future travel. An all-around excellent and stress-free experience that’s affordable is a rarity in NYC.

This hotel is a transactional hotel. They give you a clean bed and bathroom and you pay your money, that’s it! The hotel is not in the hospitality business but simply there to make money. Period. Do not expect any welcome or meaningful or helpful interaction with reception or hotel staff. Expect to hear loud amorous noises in the wee hours of the morning and the occasional whiff of special cigarettes in the corridors. And expect to be woken up, in the morning, by very noisy cleaners, nattering at will, in the corridors. You can make hotel staff aware of these issues but expect extreme nonchalance, in return. The upside to this hotel, is its proximity to the heart of NYC, clean bed and bathrooms but it is not a 3-star hotel. Its correct designation is a 2-star hotel!

This hotel was good value for money. The location perfect and only 300 metres walk to the Subway. Once on Subway only 3 stops to 5th Avenue.
This hotel was clean, very comfortable and all we needed for our 7 night visit. Our room was cleaned daily, our bed changed whenever we wanted and all staff were helpful and welcoming. We would recommend this hotel over any on Manhattan.
Room 204 is LOUD
Reviewed 3 December, 2019
Stayed in room 204 on a two day business trip. The noise from the lobby area is noticeable. There is a dumpster literally right out your window. It got dumped at about 2:00 am both nights. It woke me up even with white noise on in the background. House cleaning needs to focus more on the bathroom. There was hair all over the bathroom floor. Bed was comfortable. Decent gym. Restaurant on-site and many within walking distance. I would stay here again, only if I could guarantee a higher floor.
