The Garden City Hotel is a Long Island landmark. In its 140+ years, it has hosted Charles Lindbergh, the night before his legendary Transatlantic flight, the cast of "Sex and the City" and members of the Vanderbilt family, among others. 

Though renovated in 2014, guest rooms strive to retain historic touches; custom millwork exists alongside modern amenities, such as Keurig coffeemakers and Luxe Dreams pillow-top mattresses. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, making it easy to plan business or travel excursions in the area. The Long Island Rail Road station right across the street makes exploring even easier.

The many amenities include an upscale, on-site steakhouse that's popular with locals and tourists alike, a full spa, a hair salon, a nightclub and an indoor pool.
