Upon arriving very early I was accommodated . This hotel is a good bang for the buck. This is the only Queens location that provides a shuttle straight into the city and each room has a fantastic view. Paying more for a city hotel would be unwise. The $$ saved for the minor inconvenience of being in Queens is well worth it. Some criticism: The earliest […] shuttle does not leave on time so, if you have an appointment they will have to call a taxi for you . If you want to come home after 11:30 p.m. you need to call a car service. The super young staff gives it a feeling of immaturity and "trying too hard". The rooms heated floors do not work and the bottles hanging above the bed make you wonder what would happen if they ever came loose? Otherwise, this is a diamond in the rough.

"I cannot tell you hoe pleased I was."
When I booked this hotel I had no idea what a beautiful venue it was. Great European styling, clean, up to date accommodations, Excellent food and all well prepared. Loved the breakfast buffet, pleantiful and tasty. Room service was quick and always with a smile. The staff was really outstanding! Renita Guyanand, Sam ( "Uncle Sam" ) Elberg, Igor, Your […] Sous Chef Reuben, The Bar Manager Liz, Maria Echeuarria, the waitress and super friendly Hospitality girl. Everyone we came in contact with went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable and memorable one. Matt Moody even came to rescue us on the roof when he thought we were trapped in the elevator. :-) Don't let me forget the young man who drives the shuttle bus, Amin, he also did a great job! You have a Five Star Hotel with OUTSTANDING employees who treat the guests like royalty. Thank you for a memorable experience and rest assured I will recommend the "Z HOTEL" to everyone traveling to New York City. Thank You!!!! Paul F. Spinelli Queensbury, New York.

"Average at best"
Room was small, but well decorated. Service was nothing to brag about. I went to the lounge to get a bite and couldn't get service to save my life. Nobody smiled and apparently there was some sort of low budget film shooting going on at the bar, which created too much a distraction for the staff to do their jobs. Asked for maid service when I went to […] lunch...came back 2 hours later and room still the same...not touched. There is only street parking available in the area...I probably would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, great view, Not the nicest hotel."
The only problem I had was the room was somewhat small. Which is to be expected with a city hotel. However the bed was not comfortable (extremely hard and bed was squeaky). Also poorly made (sheets were not tucked in properly, the bare mattress was visible, which was a little uncomfortable). Maybe I've been spoiled by other hotels but there were not […] proper amenities (no iron, no hairdryer, no toothbrush/toothpaste). Aside from that, it was rather clean and an overall pretty place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"View of Manhattan from every room"
This was a great hotel if you want to visit Manhattan. I was skeptical when I read that all the rooms had a city view but it's true. All the rooms are arranged on the Manhattan side of the building. There are no rooms facing Queens. We were on the 4th floor and had a great view. There is also a bar on the roof (wasn't open since we visited in January) […] where you can get some nice pictures as well. There is a shuttle that goes to Manhattan. It leaves every hour (on the hour) and picks up every hour (on the half hour). The drop off and pick up spots are near Bloomingdale's which is about two or three blocks from the south eastern corner of Central Park. The food for breakfast was good but pricey. We didn't try any other food so I can't comment on that. Drinks in the room were super expensive (bottled water was $4). If you don't want to pay top prices, I suggest bringing your own stuff when you come back from Manhattan cause there isn't anything near the hotel. Our only complaint is about the bathroom. The room/shower is tiled but it hasn't aged well. It looks dirty simply because of age (I think). Also, the shower head is nice but not detachable if you want that kind of thing. Finally, whoever thought glass doors to the bathroom was a good idea was not thinking it through. I don't know about you, but when someone is using the sink outside the bathroom (directly across from the door), it's kind of hard to go to the bathroom even if the glass is frosted.

i loved the package the hotel offered me for my anniversary. It was the naughty or nice package. We picked the naughty package and enjoyed every bit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to city very convienent."
Overall it was nice the bar is cool. Rooms r comfy and bathrooms r nice. But I did have issue w staff opening room door in the mourning wo my permission. That's rude another thing is I still haven't got money back in debit card from deposit. I checked out on Jan 30 it's now Feb 4. Almost forgot 2 for one drinks at the bar that's a plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff from the front desk to the bartender and security were fun, friendly and helpful. The shuttle convenient (free!!) and the food in the bar/restaurant was good and not overpriced. We actually cancelled our reservation at the Waldorf to stay here the remainder of our trip...only heads up to offer - the rooms with 2 beds are twin size but very […] comfortable.

Great view, very clean, close to many restaurants, bars, and a comedy club! Hotel staff was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
"No need to return"
The positives are the great view of the New York skyline, shuttle to the city and the staff. This is a glorified motel. Their is nothing in the neighborhood to do or see. Spend a few extra bucks for a better location and hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Billion dollar views and convenient"
For the price, you can't beat it... the room was very comfortable. And the view... OMG!!! I would dine someplace else... the restaurant only had 2 staff persons... they had to do everything... pour cocktails, take orders, run food, seat guests and take to go orders... You could see how stretched they were. I ordered chicken wings and a burger... both […] were served cold or Luke warm. Flavor of wings were decent, however, the burger did not taste particularly good... it seemed like they overworked the burger patty. Chinese food at Friendly Chinese Restaurant was terrific!

"you get what you pay for"
Not a bad place. Clean, friendly staff, cool decorations. Hotel looks new and modern but its in the middle of a pretty ghetto neighborhood. Closest subway is a few blocks away, however they were closed during our entire trip so we ended up having to walk to a further subway, which was about 20 mins walk from the hotel? They do offer shuttle service […] to/from Lexington/59th Ave every hour. They also offer a hot breakfast but only if you have a voucher (extra $$?). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Really nice! Definitely a do-over!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The outside looks really cool, and where you check in also. The staff was super friendly and quick... The hall ways were a tad bit weird, I dunno what was going on with the walls they were like plastic with a hole in them... And it happened to be raining hard the wknd I stayed and the floors were very wet and slippery... Now the room design was great […] and super cool. But the room was tiny! Very tiny... I was surprised by this. But it was clean and pretty. The view was amazing. Overall it was okay. Nothing blew me away. I probably wouldn't stay again because of the price and size of the room. I've stayed I'm wayyyy bigger rooms in other LIC hotels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay for the view"
Decent hotel with a great view of Midtown Manhattan. Waking up to that view was spectacular. It will make you feel rich for a few minutes. The room was a little on the small side and the bed wasn't the most comfortable. The bathroom was clean, but thought the room could have been cleaner. Also, not enough places to sit, besides the bed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great low-cost alternative to staying in Manhattan"
The service was outstanding. The front desk staff was friendly, proactive & efficient. The hotel has great modern style. The rooms weren't huge, but were well laid out, comfortable, clean and decorated in a tasteful & hip style. Room service and mini-bar items were - quite remarkably - reasonably priced. I wasn't there long enough to take advantage […] of it, but the offer free & frequent transportation into Manhattan which is right across the river. Sensational views, too...

You may not be in Manhattan, but you're close enough. The free shuttle service more than makes up for any inconvenience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"modern room with a great view!"
I Love the view, the restaurant, and the staff. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice updated place without the manhattan price. The only side note is that it's on an industrial block and a little out of the way. I have a car so it was no big deal. Also...you are in nyc so there are numerous ways to get around so it shouldn't be a big deal […] but def worth mentioning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Interesting but Fun"
This hotel is not close to the train line!!!! This Hotel location is not in the livest spot with a bunch of empty warehouses around so at night I wouldn't advise you to walk around. Other than that everything was perfect except for the heat. It only worked on High at 90 degrees or we had to turn it off....Room 306.

"Inconvenient, Bad Neighborhood but great views"
Room was very clean, modern. Breathtaking view over the river towards Manhattan! The hallway was under construction and had plastic over the windows. Very cold and windy, 7 stories high in the winter. Location is the primary downside of this hotel. In a pretty dark and seedy neighborhood, with hardly anything around. My keycard didn't work in the door […] at first. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel. Rooms were nice and clean with an amazing view of Manhattan. Staff was very friendly and always helpful.

"Hotel in Long Island City"
Hotel was nice, boutique style hotel with "hipster" interior design. Everything was quite new and clean. We stayed there only for one night, TV didn't work,(or maybe we couldn't figure out the remote control) but it was late and we didn't feel like contacting the front desk. The hall way was quite cold, and our room was the end room, and also a bit […] chilly. Restaurant in the hotel on lower level with average food. No other restaurants within close walking distance. Hotel is located in a "warehouse zone", so scenery around the hotel was stark. We parked on the street, it was free parking. There is a free shuttle to downtown Manhattan every hour, but we did not use it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good price for a good view"
This place was interesting - I think they possibly opened recently, unless the staff were just new. The rooms are nice (small, but bigger than some Manhattan hotels I've stayed in) and all have a view of the Empire state building. The lounge/bar is nice but when we went to get the complimentary coffee, the girl working seemed to be annoyed that we even […] asked. The hotel offers bikes, but I think there were 3 total, two of which were being used when we got there so we (my husband and I) couldn't use them since there was only one left. It started raining so we asked for an umbrella, which really confused the guy behind the desk, but he did find one to give us to borrow (could have been his own personal one). The location is a little weird, with not much surrounding the hotel itself, but good neighborhoods filled with coffee places and restaurants/bars are only a 15 minute walk away. Overall, its a good place for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
