We recently stayed here for three nights and found this hotel to be extremely convenient. It is about a $20 cab ride from LGA and a block away from the 39th Ave subway that goes straight to Manhanttan in less than 2 stops ($2.75 per ride pp each way). Even though it's called Manhattan View, I think only 4 rooms on each floor have a view onto Manhattan, ours was not particularly exciting. The room was clean and there is free wifi. The beds were a little soft for our taste. The $10 buffet breakfast that was available on a Saturday morning looked really pitiful. We walked in to take a look and then walked out immediately. This was the best value that we could find while searching for places to stay during our weekend in NYC, we thought the location was very convenient and were happy with our stay. The room size were also very decent considering what we had seen in pictures of other Manhattan hotels. The service at the front desk was also very friendly. Collapse
The worst Holiday Inn property I have ever seen!

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. And I am now sure, it really was not just an off-night. May I never have to stay here again! After reading the reviews, I am shaking my head. People say it's a great location. Um, no, it is not. It has one subway line relatively close. The other ones, like the 7, are a half mile away. A half mile might not seem like a lot, until you are walking back after midnight, exhausted from spending the day walking around Manhattan, and more than one member of the local neighborhood starts following you because you CLEARLY are not from around there. There is a Hilton property right next door, and they are having the same problem. The local 'clientele' hang out in front of the two hotels because they cannot be seen in front of the Hotel Verve. The former Hotel Verve is only one block away, and is now a homeless womans shelter. Which explains why my husband and I witnessed (on all three nights of our stay), men crawling in or out of the first floor windows after hours when the lobby doors are locked. We overheard an intelligent conversation between one rather spry man negotiating fees with a female occupant on the other side of the open window before he jumped up on the sill and slithered into the room. And that will explain why the employees at the front desk will NOT, under any circumstances, help you get into the hotel unless you get yourself inside using the hotel key. It is such a sketchy neighborhood. Even if they see you struggling with the key. there allegedly is this strict policy that they cannot open the door for you. They will just stand there and look at you. Which is great when you are a late arrival and have no key because you haven't checked in yet. In my case, the guy would not simply buzz us in the regular door. He made us go through the revolving door, with a tiny little wedge of space, with all of our luggage. No one wants to drag their suitcases through a tiny wedge of a rotating door and fight with their bags when they are exhausted and just arriving. That's the first sign that this is not like any other Holiday Inn I have stayed at. It would also explain why the same guy would not let us in when we clearly had a key and kept trying to swipe the entry box, and it was not reading our key. We had to wait until another guest arrived and opened the door with their key. The best part of that scenario was that we were just followed by several intimidating males and it started to pour rain on us before we got in. So we are trying to get away from the sketch and be safe, and are standing there soaking wet, and the front desk guy refused to help us. LAZY and incredibly unconcerned for our well-being. We stayed in room 1509. Maybe they can fix the compressor on the air conditioner. It only works in spurts, so in the middle of the night, you wake up sweating and the temperature is 78 degrees regardless of the settings. We had to open the balcony door to get some air into the room, and were up all night with the noise. While they are at it, maybe they can fix the toilet that constantly leaks. Then the water fills the tank up LOUDLY every couple minutes. Because if the street noise or stuffy room temp doesn't wake you out of a sound sleep, that will. And it goes on ALL NIGHT! Oh, and maybe they can replace the cement mattress and rickety frame in the room. Because if the previously mentioned reasons do not keep you up at night, the Fred Flinstone bedrock sure will. Or if one person rolls over because his or her back and hips are screaming in pain, you will certainly be jiggled awake by the excessive movement of the frame. Oh, yea. And while they are at it, maybe they can seal the shower stall to the wall, so water doesn't leak out everywhere when you take a quick shower. Because I find it annoying having to use all my towels to soak up the water that leaks out because someone didn't use their head. The view was nice, and the shower actually worked. Those are the only redeeming qualities about this location. I can pay about $40 per night more and stay at the Staybridge Suites in Times Square, which is remarkably quiet, in the middle of everything, has excellent customer service and the property is well-maintained. The Holiday Inn LIC is no longer a bargain, especially if you risk getting mugged, cannot sleep, have to pay for a crappy breakfast (I know of ZERO Holiday Inn locations that charge for breakfast), cannot control your climate, and the employees are atrocious.

I stayed in the Long Island City "Manhattan View" Holiday Inn over a frigid weekend in early March. Thanks in part to my IHG membership and in (perhaps greater) part to the fact that the hotel wasn't full, I got upgraded to a western-facing room on a high floor. The view over Long Island City, the Queensboro (59th Street) Bridge, and Manhattan was truly amazing. Other aspects of the hotel were fine too, just as you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. Staff members were friendly. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean (although one of the window shades was broken). The nearby subway station was convenient, and so was the Queensboro Bridge: I walked to and from Manhattan a couple of times. Only one caveat: The room heating system turned off when it detected no activity in the room. This seems perfectly reasonable to me, except that it worked at night too, and I woke up at around 2 in the morning every day I was there with the room temperature in the low 60s (the single-pane windows that provided a great view didn't offer much protection against cold). I complained and was given a warmer blanket, which helped. Also, a building engineer came and fiddled, but he definitely didn't fix the problem. Collapse

Hotel was pretty good. no complaints! Room was very clean and housekeeping was great! Very close to subway and pretty much a few stops to Time Square. Parking is very limited and $25 a day. parking is not well managed though as someone was always parked in my spot and i just parked in any available spot which i had no issues. area was not too bad either to walk at night. Overall very happy with our stay. Also the food at the Brazilian restaurant was fantastic! a little pricey but great! Collapse

Rooms are large, updated, comfortable. I've always had striking views of the Manhattan skyline. Hotel is very close to 3 convenient subway stations with non-stop access to midtown Manhattan. You can also easily walk over the nearby Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan. The area the hotel is in is "up and coming" without the amenities comparable to Manhattan, but the price more than makes up for this. Collapse
