I had a problem with the bathroom toilet which repeatedly was autoflushing every hour; waking me up throughout the night. I complained several times but it did not get fixed properly. Everything else about the place is excellent and I have stayed her numerous times.

Thank you for your review. I am delighted your stop for a drink in King Bar by David Burke turned into an overnight experience at The Garden City Hotel. I will add your compliments about our staff to the ever growing list of accolades received from very satisfied guests - we consider them the best in the business - professional, dedicated hard working - and thank you for your acknowledgement. Word is spreading about King Bar by David Burke and Red Salt Room by David Burke - and the word is culinary creativity at it's best - whimsical, never boring and always delicious! Having the Long Island Railroad train station across the street from the hotel is an extra bonus for our guests. A few steps and you're on your way to your New York City adventure - easy, simple and much better than sitting in holiday traffic! Please come back soon for another cocktail/overnight stay at The Garden City Hotel.

4:00 check in was late and inconvenient for a hotel of this stature but we were accommodated by 3:30 after waiting for some time. Everything else was excellent including the extremely efficient and pleasant customer service. We would return but think they should do something

Thank you for your review of your stay at The Garden City Hotel. I am pleased we were able to accommodate you a half hour before our 4:00 PM check in. Early check in is dictated by occupancy and housekeeping and 4:00 PM is fast becoming the standard hotel check in time. This allows ample time for our housekeeping team to prepare and inspect each guest room ensuring the condition of the room meets the extremely high standards of The Garden City Hotel before the next guest occupies the room.. Please be assured if your guest room was ready when you arrived, you would have been checked in. I apologize for the inconvenience this caused you and was delighted to read the remainder of your stay exceeded expectations in every way.

Let me start by saying that I have never been to a hotel where the staff was as kind and pleasant as the staff at the Garden City Hotel. From the moment I entered to the moment I left, literally everyone I met was considerate and pleasant. I am including doormen, reception,

Thank you for your review and accolades about your stay at The Garden City Hotel. Thank you also for coming clean that your son is Chef de Cuisine at the hotel. I also have a confession to make - your son is the son-in-law of my friends and neighbors - small world! Thank you, again and please come back soon.

Thank you for your assessment - both pro and con - of your recent stay at The Garden City Hotel. Of course, we all prefer compliments, but thru your posting, we were made aware where improvements in service may be warranted. Case in point, our housekeeping team has been instructed standard operating procedure must include making sure all alarm clocks are turned off when preparing the guest room for a new occupant - thank you! Based upon the numerous complimentary reviews posted from very satisfied guests, we hope you will give us a second opportunity to prove ourselves to you.

What does a "haunted retirement home" feel like?
Yes I read that review and I have no clue what a haunted retirement home would feel . Certainly not my experience at that hotel

does the sofa change into a bed
I'm pretty sure not - particularly the beautiful rooms I have stayed in however, many of the deluxe rooms have two beds in so there is no need to sleep on a coach. Hopefully by now you have already communicated with the hotel - sorry for the late reply - I have just returned from staying at the Garden City Hotel - wonderful as always!

Is there a shopping mall nearby and does the hotel provide a shutttle to it?
The Roosevelt Field Mall, one of the largest in the country, is a very short ride from The Garden City Hotel and we do offer shuttle service in the Hotel's 2017 Cadillac Escalade for a slight fee.
