Hotel Review: Holiday Inn Manhattan View Long Island City


Did you know that Queens is now the new Brooklyn? Well, whilst I was in New York I wanted to stay outside the city, save some money, be close enough to the subway and still feel safe as a single girl travelling on her own. I stayed for 11 days at the Holiday Inn Manhattan View Long Island City and it was a perfect fit to my needs.

Holiday Inn Manhattan View sets the bar high for Manhattan area hotels. With views of the unmistakable New York City skyline,  the hotel is an exceptional backdrop for both business and pleasure.  This Queens hotel is just minutes from Manhattan, New York City’s legendary landmarks.  Explore the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Museum of the Moving Image, and the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Broadway, and Madison Square Garden. Holiday Inn Manhattan View is a nearby neighbor to many Fortune 500 companies, offering easy access to Citibank, MetLife, the United Nations, JetBlue, Delta, and Mount Sinai Medical Center.  The hotel is conveniently located within a short drive of all the major New York airports: LaGuardia, JFK and Newark.  I was at the Holiday Inn Manhattan View within 45 minutes of arriving at LaGuardia Airport.

I loved being able to get into the city in ten minutes in the morning.  Even during those long days in the city – I would roll back to the hotel around 11 p.m. and walk the two minutes back to the Holiday Inn Manhattan View.  I never had any issues in regards to safety.  The street was quiet but the hotel is in a sleepy neighbourhood alongside a few other hotels nestled within the same block.

The Holiday Inn Manhattan View offers free high-speed Internet access. Ideal for international travelers and vacationers, this Astoria, Queens hotel is located just one block from the N and Q subway lines and just a few blocks from the E and R subway lines.

I’m never going to hesitate to book another with the Holiday Inn Manhattan View Long Island City the next time I am in New York.  I hope you consider them as well!
