Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn LaGuardia Airport Corona
We went July of 2004, and were very happy with it. The staff was extremely helpful. That was VERY important, since we didn't know where ANYthing was in NY. There was an indoor and outdoor parking lot. The room was VERY clean and comfortable. There weren't enough places to set things down, so I opened the ironing board, and used that, the entire time we were there. There was an indoor pool, but the hours weren't very long. But it didn't matter, because there was a lifeguard. I swam all alone, and felt as though I was being guarded while in a giant bathtub! So obviously, I felt too odd to stay in more than a few minutes. But that just goes to show how very caring they are to all their guests. Both my husband and I would go there again.
I recently stayed at the Ramada Plaza Hotel La Guardia and forgot my Rolex watch in the room. When I called the hotel, the Room Attendant had already handed the watch to "lost and found" and the rolex was secured in the hotel safe.
Needless to say, I would always return to the Ramada Plaza Hotel in La Guardia
Noisy, but OK
Stayed at the Ramada for three days in early August. Shuttle to airport every twenty minutes was always on time. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to subway (about 5 block walk). Both nights I was there, the alarm in a car in the parking lot went off for 10-20 minutes before it was quieted. This was very bothersome. Conversations in next room could be heard. Since I had received a very good rate through Priceline, I registered no complaints.
Good Hotel, Poor Staff.
This Hotel is quite good, if you can get a good room rate. The shuttle bus was as described and we had no problems getting to the airport. The room was descent enough and clean. The only let down I found was the check in staff. Couldn't confirm the rate would be what we had booked, and wasn't going to provide the breakfast which had been included in that rate. Generally the guy was very unhelpful, even forgeting to return my Credit Card. This wasn't sorted out until the next morning, even though I had emails stating all the relevent information. I would advise anyone staying here to make sure they had copies of all emails etc with them. One other point worth noting, We got a Taxi here from JFK airport to the hotel, make sure you tell the driver it is not beside the other airport hotels but on the other side of the motorway facing Shea stadium, it was easy enough to find, but our taxi driver insisted taking us to the other airport hotels area even though we had passed this hotel and had pointed it out to him.
I stayed at the hotel with my Fiancee and we had the best treatment ever. The rooms were fantastic and conveniently located across from Shea Stadium. You can also walk from the hotel to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. I Would definately stay with the Ramada again
I loved my stay at the Ramada Plaza Hotel La Guardia
We had a layover in New York, due to bad weather conditions. The Airline sent us to the Ramada Plaza Hotel in La Guardia. The hotel was nice and clean and we had a wonderful room overlooking Shea Stadium. We loved it, because my husband is a huge METS fan. The staff was extremly helpful, especially a lady in the lobby who helped us with our luggage and made us feel welcome. Next time we go to New York, we will stay there again and I will make sure I bring my swim suit, as they have a really nice pool area with a sundeck.
Would Stay Again
I made an internet booking through Ramada for a transit night for my daughter. After a 30 hour flight to New York from Australia and a few mishaps with ground transport between JFK and LaGuardia, a very tired and slightly distressed girl arrived at Ramada check-in.
On her arrival she found the hotel staff to be pleasant and very helpful. She described it as "a real nice hotel, clean with comfortable rooms". My daughter also made mention that when she rang the hotel from LaGuardia to collect her they were there within 5 minutes.
She would have no hesitation in staying again.
I am making this post because after making the booking for my daughter I then read a couple of very worrying reviews. At one stage I was going to cancel the booking and make another elsewhere but am now very glad that we stayed with the Ramada booking.
Thank you Ramada for taking such good care of a novice world traveller.
Very disappointed by Ramada Plaza at LaGuardia
I chose to stay at the Ramada Plaza near Laguardia airport after having a GREAT experience at the Ramada Plaza near O'Hare. The hotel was simply awful. The room, elevators, and hallways smelled musty and everything felt a little grimy. The room doors have deadbolts but do not have safety latches, which surprised me since they claim this is a new hotel. Although they claim the have installed soundproof windows, the traffic noise from the nearby highway was enough to rattle the lamp on the desk. Upon checkout, there was a $1.00 charge for a "Safe Warranty Fee" which they claim was disclosed at registration, but I certainly did not notice, and it was not disclosed when I made the reservation on line. I would pay $100 more a night to stay anywhere but this hotel.
Nightmare at Ramada Plaza La Guardia
I received very poor treatment from the Ramada Plaza Hotel at La Guardia Airport when attempting to check-in to the hotel. The hotel failed to honor a fully pre-paid reservation, denied me to check-in to the hotel despite that I provided a written confirmation, and left me stranded for the night.I had a pre-paid reservation with the hotel through a well-known third-party booking service and was provided a Ramada confirmation number. At approximately 10:30 p.m. when checking-in, I was informed by the assistant manager on duty that my reservation for that evening could not be located in their system and that the hotel was completely sold out. I informed the assistant manager that I had a pre-paid reservation for the hotel, and showed him a copy of my printed confirmation with the Ramada confirmation number printed thereon. He instantaneously dismissed the confirmation and said that the hotel did not have anything in their system regarding my reservation and placed the blame on the third-party booking service for allegedly not making a reservation at the hotel. I do not find this convincing, however, as I confirmed the reservation through Ramada¬ s 800-reservation line approximately one-week prior and they had no difficulty locating the reservation through the Ramada confirmation number I provided. Accordingly, Ramada did have the reservation in their system prior to my check-in.Due to the assistant manager¬ s unwillingness to cooperate after producing sufficient evidence of my pre-paid confirmation, I immediately called the third-party booking service and informed them that the hotel alleged they could not locate my reservation and had refused to check me in. The booking service called the hotel directly and faxed additional documentation as evidence of my pre-paid reservation. The hotel still refused to accept the fact that I had a pre-paid reservation even after the third party booking service provided the hotel with the additional documentation. I find it very interesting how the Ramada confirmation number that did in fact exist previously now mysteriously disappeared when the hotel became sold out for the evening.Despite having a written pre-paid confirmation, the hotel did not offer me any assistance whatsoever to help me find alternative accommodations. I was not able to secure a hotel for the evening as the major hotel chains I contacted in the area were already sold out for that evening. I stayed in the hotel lobby awake the entire night because I had no where else to go. I had been traveling from California until my arrival in New York at 10 p.m. that evening. After remaining in the hotel lobby the entire night with no opportunity to shower, I took the hotel shuttle to La Guardia Airport at 6:30 a.m. to return to California. A miserable experience indeed.
UK citizens in New York
We stayed for two nights at the Ramada near La Guardia and found the hotel very comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. The hotel is very similar to what we are used to in the UK - this is a compliment! Although breakfast was not included there was a good restauarant which served a good breakfast which kept us going for most of the day. It only took us 20 minutes to get into the heart of Manhattan by Subway. I would certainly stay here again when visiting New York. Well done all at the Ramada!

... entertainment & a great feeling of walking amongst the buildings. We got off at 34th street, had lunch & then checked out free wi fi at Maceys (not bad), the Madison Square Park area - Flatiron Building (so sensational up close), Eataly NY (fantastically busy & such a great concept), walking through NYU & Union Square (psychology classroom with a window facing THE STREET!) and a cement dog park. Another huge day of walking and saw so ...
... so I left and went back to my hotel to pack and then went to the club KuDeTa to say goodbye to everyone. At 10pm, we were to leave for the airport and the car came with the French piano player who was with Joan Minor. As we were about to leave for the airport, the car stalled and wouldn't start. This was not the same vehicle that we took to the country. It was a very nice Land Rover. Well, everyone looked inside the motor again and they put in ...
... before I fall into bed, I check my FB messages and read lots of birthday well-wishes from Oz. It makes me both happy and sad. I am feeling very blessed, but also a bit sad to be so far away from the people I love and care about! The good part is, I get another birthday tomorrow! Thanks everyone for all your birthday love- it means so so much to feel loved when you are so far from home. I have to emulate Judy Garland here, but mean it absolutely- there really is no place like ...
... to sit down right away. Carmine's serves Italian food family style so we had to decide on a dish that we would both enjoy. Our bartender said that the white clam sauce was one of the best so we decided on that with linguine. Holy yum. It was amazing! We almost finished all of it and there was enough for me to take home for lunch the next day. By now it was after midnight so the next natural step was to order a dessert and a cappuccino. We had some mini chocolate ...
... a big marquee was the Space Shuttle and on the dock by the side of the Intrepid was a British Airways Concord plane that was open for inspection, it would have been good to have had time to look around but we had an organised tour planned, we had a booked to see Lower Manhattan and the 9/11 memorial site. We started off by a bus trip from the ship to one of the ferry terminals for us to catch a water taxi to Battery Point park, the water taxi took us past all the sights we had ...
