These days, Queens, NY, is less a “hidden gem” and more a destination in its own right, with the best hotels in Long Island City putting you in the heart of it all. Locals and visitors alike are drawn to their trendy bars and restaurants, thriving comedy clubs, waterfront parks, and art museums. The rewards for overnighting in Long Island City and Astoria include access to eight subway lines (N, W, R, F, M, 7, G, E) for easy trips to other boroughs, a 5- to 20-minute commute to Manhattan, and tremendous value.
