Famous Hotels in Great Neck

Although there is a village on Long Island called Great Neck, the term also generally applies to the general region of a northern peninsula of Long Island that, in addition to the village of Great Neck, includes other villages such as Great Neck Estates, Great Neck Plaza, and nearby Lake Success. The region has a population of about 40,000. The city is part of the greater New York City metropolitan area, and the Long Island Railroad serves many commuters who live in the Great Neck area and work in the city. The area is famous for its role in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. The fictional city of West Egg is probably modeled after Great Neck. Other celebrities to live in Great Neck include Sid Caesar and Oscar Hammerstein II. According to the movie the Miracle on 34th Street, St. Nick was a resident at a home in Great Neck. There is also a well known shopping center in Great Neck with over 300 shops and restaurants.

There are two luxury hotels in the Great Neck area. The first of these is the well-known Inn at Great Neck. The hotel has a New York art deco theme to emulate the styles of the 1920s and reflect the atmosphere of the “Jazz Age” and The Great Gatsby. The Inn at Great Neck is decorated with handmade rugs, mahogany paneling, and alabaster chandeliers. It also has several murals that portray scenes from The Great Gatsby. The hotel has a variety of guest rooms, including suites and jacuzzi rooms with marble bathrooms. Rates for these rooms range from about $225 for the standard rooms in off-peak seasons to $400 for larger suites. The Giraffe Room, a luxury restaurant, is also at the hotel. Other amenities at the hotel include fresh flowers in suites, free wireless internet, and complementary DVD movies.

Another highly rated luxury hotel in the Great Neck area is the Andrew Hotel. With custom designed oak and cherry furniture, limestone floors, ostrich skin, mohair and raw silk in its guest rooms, the Andrew described its decorating style as “luxurious minimalism.” Like the Inn at Great Neck, the Andrew Hotel has several types of guest rooms, including standard rooms and luxury suites. The prices at the Andrew are also similar to the Inn at Great Neck, with prices from about $200 to $400. The hotel also has amenities like a complementary continental breakfast, a fitness center, and room service available from several Great Neck restaurants. You can also choose to have a fruit bowl, a gourmet snack bowl, or a chilled bottle of champagne awaiting you when you arrive at the hotel.

Both the Inn at Great Neck and the Andrew Hotel are only a 30 minute train ride into the heart of Manhattan, so one of these Great Neck hotels are a good option for those who are considering a New York vacation. In addition to being less expensive than Manhattan’s luxury hotels, the hotels in Great Neck could also provide a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city.
