Four Points Long Island City: Best Place to Stay NYC

2

The Four Points Long Island City Hotel Review is part of the ongoing series of TPOL in NYC.


Getting there: One of the top reasons to stay at the Four Points Long Island City is because it is close to LaGuardia, despite the inconvenience of Uber at LGA during construction.


Long Island City baby! I’ve lived all over NY and surrounding areas. First, I was in Brooklyn, specifically Greenpoint. That was very boring. Then I was in Hoboken. That’s in New Jersey. Then I moved to Bushwick, specifically Gates & Broadway, an area that was a bit dodgy. After those experiences, I thought enough is enough and decided the best way to work in New York was not to live in New York. Instead, I fly in and fly out as necessary.

Searching for the best hotel that’s also the most convenient and most reasonably priced is a challenge each trip. I’ve had success at Four Points in Manhattan, the Hyatt at Herald Square, and the Sheraton Brooklyn. And who can forget when the St. Regis New York was a bargain? This time the cheapest option was in Long Island City, a city in Queens.

Although there really was nothing to do in LIC, the location can’t be beat. The hotel is only two stops from Midtown Manhattan and has multiple lines to get you to wherever you want to go in the city without changing lines.

The Room

The room was a standard Four Points room. I only include these redundant photos for readers who specifically click on this post and have not read others.

The View

The difference between this Four Points and the others is the view. Instead of a view of a brick wall, the Four Points LIC has rooms with a view of the Manhattan skyline.

It also has a rooftop bar and a terrace on the 7th Floor which is great for photos.

The Rate

This is the most affordable SPG hotel in NYC. The hotel can be booked for as little as $120 but I’ve seen it go for $200 plus. If the hotel is pricey then you can be sure that the ones in Manhattan or Brooklyn‎ are going for a lot more.

The Business Center

A business center is unnecessary until it is needed. The printer worked with no fuss. That was huge because Bachuwa Law was en route to an arbitration.

Overall

I believe I’ve found my go to hotel when I’m in NYC for work. It’s close to everything and the price can’t be beat.
