About the Hotel
A luxurious Long Island destination for more than 125 years, the Garden City Hotel offers world-class accommodations for business and pleasure travelers alike. Rest and relax at this classic, elegant property—a Preferred Hotels & Resorts property, part of the Preferred Hotel Group—in a charming, tree-lined community just 20 miles from New York City where historic opulence meets 21st-century business technology and services. Spacious and lusciously appointed with vibrant artwork, baronial antique desks and sumptuous bedding, 280 guest rooms provide a sophisticated yet comfy retreat. Sixteen suites add ample living quarters, and four penthouse suites invite intimate, in-room entertaining with parlor dining areas and built-in refreshment centers. Meanwhile, a state-of-the-art business center supplies everything from faxing and photocopying to translation and tech support, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the premises.
You'll never even have to leave these fabulous grounds to enjoy a luxuriant stay. Start your day at the Atrium Café with a breakfast buffet of light, casual fare, or indulge in the Rein's award-winning Sunday brunch, which pairs unlimited Bloody Marys and mimosas with upscale cuisine—think lobster, carved meats, sushi and pasta along with your omelets and waffles. Belgian Master Chef Steven De Bruyn also prepares an exquisite afternoon tea and ambrosial New American dishes that are served in the warm and stylish dining room or on the breezy seasonal patio. Follow an invigorating workout in the hotel's state-of-the-art health and fitness facility with a relaxing dip in the heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi or whirlpool, and pamper yourself with a refreshing makeover at the full-service beauty salon or a rejuvenating Swedish massage at the spa. If you do decide to venture from the Garden City Hotel, though, you'll be greeted by a friendly neighborhood bound by Franklin Avenue's high-end retail and fine dining on one side and scenic Seventh Street on the other. No wonder such political and cultural dynasties as the Vanderbilts, the Astors, the Kennedys and the Clintons have all stayed at the Garden City Hotel.
