If you would like to enjoy views of the entire Manhattan skyline, I recommend you take a closer look at the Z NYC Hotel. It is not only one of the 16 hotels on my list of top New York Hotels with great views, but also a budget tip for the shoulder season. It is located directly at the 59th Street Bridge (Queensboro Bridge) in Long Island City and offers tremendous views across the Hudson River onto the Manhattan skyline. Getting from Manhattan to the Z NYC Hotel does not take any time thanks to the complimentary hotel shuttle (a renovated yellow school bus!) between the two boroughs.
Another option – my preference – take the water taxi. In just a few minutes you will be across the East River.
As expected (otherwise the Z NYC Hotel would not be included in my best of list), the property is very popular and has a very high recommendation rate. Guest reviews are also very good.
In the past, you could make reservations at this hotel via Booking.com, but this is no longer an option.
Guest rooms at Z NYC Hotel are stylish and characterized by a dark, harmonious color scheme. The views are fantastic: along the Queensboro Bridge, you can see across the Hudson to the Manhattan skyline. It is truly something special!
