If you’re travelling to Long Island this holiday season, you may be wondering where to stay. There are plenty of hotels to choose from, but the fact of the matter is, some are of higher quality than others. To alleviate the stress you may have while searching for the right hotel, Ollie’s has put together a list of highly recommended Long Island hotels for the holidays.
Long Island Hotels for the Holidays
When you’re searching for Long Island hotels, you don’t want to end up staying somewhere run-down that has poor service. You want to stay somewhere that places a high value on hotel quality and customer service.
Suffolk County Hotels
Hotel Indigo of Riverhead is located in a great area and comes with many amenities. It’s right near the Long Island Aquarium, which is worth a visit any time of year. Bistro 72, a restaurant with fantastic food made from locally grown, organic seasonal ingredients and a list full of world-class wines, is also located right inside the hotel.
Residence Inn of Islip
The Islip Residence Inn, which is owned by Marriott Hotels, is quite a steal in terms of quality and pricing. The rooms are always spotless and spacious. As far as amenities, the Residence Inn has its own gym and an indoor swimming pool. Not to mention, it’s awfully close to MacArthur Airport.
Hampton Inn of Commack
Also located right near MacArthur Airport, the Hampton Inn of Commack is home to a friendly staff and tidy rooms. They offer a variety of foods each morning for their free breakfasts. If you’re on the run with no time to sit down and eat, they offer on-the-go breakfast bags for you to bring on the road.
Nassau County Hotels
The Garden City Hotel
The Garden City Hotel is a gorgeous lodging just 24 miles outside of Manhattan. Exceptional accommodation is what you’ll find here. Inside the hotel is the Polo Steakhouse, which won OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice Award in 2015. Like the rest of the hotel, the restaurant is simply luxurious, with great atmosphere and even better food.
The Inn at Fox Hollow
The Inn at Fox Hollow is a boutique hotel located in Woodbury. Every suite sports a spacious bathroom and kitchen. Inside of the hotel itself, you’ll find the Vintage 25 Wine Bar & Lounge as well as the Volpe Restaurant & Lounge. Also, there are three world-class steakhouses located just a short drive away: Rare650, Blackstone Steakhouse and Insignia Steakhouse.
The Inn at Great Neck
A proud member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the Inn at Great Neck is one of the top Long Island hotels. Excellent, individualized service is the top priority of this boutique hotel. Their on-site restaurant is called Brasserie Americana, which utilizes fresh, seasonal ingredients in the American and French cuisine they serve. The bar and lounge has been recently renovated and offers some of the finest Italian, Chilean, Argentinian, South African and local Long Island wines. They also offer domestic and imported bottled beers in addition to a six-tap beer fountain with local brews.
