Recently renovated rooms, tasty cuisine and on-site spa
Recent guests had mixed experiences regarding the restaurant service
Built in 1874, The Garden City Hotel exudes an Old World glamour that many recent visitors (and particularly brides) love. Elegant white marble encases the lobby, while a rich color palette of golds, reds and browns maintains a sophisticated atmosphere. Plus, the hotel underwent a renovation in 2014 that completely gutted and refurbished all the rooms, as well as the spa, salon and pool areas. Visitors say the new decor and furnishings are impressive, praising the comfortable beds with pillow-top mattresses and amenities like Keurig coffee makers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. And travelers are equally as impressed with the gracious front desk and concierge staff, who they say go above and beyond to provide attentive and pleasant service. Another hit: Polo Steakhouse, an eatery that dishes up inventive American fare. You'll find this hotel on Seventh Street in Garden City, New York, right across from the Garden City Long Island Rail Road station.
