The Hyatt Place Long Island City Hotel Review is part of the TPOL in NYC Trip Report.
Getting There: The best part about staying in LIC is how close it is to LGA. Minus the terrible Uber setup at LaGuardia, getting to the hotel is a breeze.
As a blogger, I do my best to publish my posts as quickly as possible. I often fail. That’s why you still have not read about my adventure in Russia which included Etihad Apartments or the conclusion of my Tahiti Triumph Trip Report. By the time I write some posts, the facts on the ground may have changed. I use the Hyatt Place Long Island City as an example. I was going to write how this hotel, which goes for 8,000 points a night, was the best deal in NYC, dethroning the previous champion The Four Points LIC. Luckily, I waited because the hotel has shot up to 12,000 points a night making it less attractive than before.
With no deal to boast about, here is a review of the hotel itself.
Like the Four Points, the Hyatt Place LIC is conveniently located next to the subway station. In fifteen minutes, I was right in the heart of Midtown.
The Hotel Itself
The lobby is pretty snazzy for a Hyatt Place.
The Suite Upgrade
As a Globalist, I received a suite upgrade. The room was huge but not necessary as the only time I am in the room in NY is when I’m going to sleep.
This is what the typical Hyatt Place looks like. It is more than adequate.
Seen one Hyatt Place, seen them all. Here are the pictures for completeness.
One thing I found odd/gross was that the toilet paper was used and not on a holder. There was not a toilet paper holder which is weird because this hotel is brand new. How did they overlook that?
The view was not as good as the Four Points which provided an impeccable view of the NY skyline. It was better than the typical view when I stay in Manhattan which is usually of a brick wall.
How many Park Hyatt pens do you have in your possession? I’m sure it is more than Hyatt Place pens.
Why did they have to ruin this great value by upping the points from 8k to 12k?! It would have been my go-to hotel otherwise.
