About the Marco LaGuardia Hotel & Suites by Lexington
One of the newer properties in the Flushing, New York area, the Marco LaGuardia Hotel & Suites by Lexington was built in 2006 and continues to be one of the more modern, upscale and affordable options for travelers on layover or catching early flights at LaGuardia Airport. The hotel’s friendly staff are used to guests checking in and out at odd hours, so they're particularly accommodating – whether they're providing hungry arrivals with a bite to eat or sending the hotel’s free shuttle to pick up a guest whose flight landed later than scheduled. The Marco LaGuardia Hotel & Suites by Lexington also offers a free shuttle to anywhere within a three-mile radius of the hotel.
The hotel's north-central Queens locale allows guests the opportunity to visit many worthwhile attractions that might be a bit off the beaten track for those staying in Manhattan. Sports fans will want to take in a game at nearby Citi Field (home of the New York Mets) or a match at the National Tennis Center (site of the U.S. Open and home to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center). Flushing Meadows–Corona Park is also home to the Queens Museum of Art, the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Zoo and the Queens Botanical Garden. The park was the site of two World's Fairs, and two structures from the most recent fair in the sixties – the Unisphere and the New York State Pavilion – are the most iconic symbols of Queens to this day.
The Flushing neighborhood is a foodie’s delight and a fun place to spend a day exploring, shopping, and above all, eating. With the second-biggest Chinatown in New York (soon to outgrow Lower Manhattan’s Chinatown), Flushing is a mecca of Asian dining, especially Chinese and Korean. It’s also a popular destination with local foodies looking for authentic Indian food. While Lower Manhattan’s Chinatown is overrun with tourists, the lively Main Street in Flushing’s Chinatown is a magnet for hungry New Yorkers, especially on the weekend.
The 81 guest rooms at the Marco LaGuardia Hotel & Suites by Lexington are spacious and well maintained, with a few touches not standard to many area hotels (and certainly not standard to “airport hotels”), like the comfortable pillow-top mattress and luxe linens on each bed, the Moen Revolution showerhead and the two free bottles of water. All rooms are also equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, flat-screen TV with premium movie channels, complimentary Wi-Fi and spacious work desks. Deluxe suites offer extras like a kitchenette and a separate living room.
The hotel offers you two delicious options for breakfast, both from the on-site Italian-inspired Magna Ristorante. Choose from a hot and cold buffet, including French toast, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs and home-style potatoes, or order a la carte from the menu. Lunch and dinner offer Magna’s signature homemade Italian fare, with salads, paninis, pizzas, meat, pastas and fish available at lunchtime and an expanded menu offering appetizers, soups, entrees, and seafood specialties at dinner. The Patio Bar and Lounge on the second floor has a full bar and offers outdoor seating when weather permits.
The Marco LaGuardia Hotel & Suites by Lexington is just minutes from the Flushing-Main subway station and the Long Island Rail Road; have the hotel shuttle drop you at your preferred station and you’ll be in Midtown Manhattan in just over half an hour.
Did you know?
Flushing's diversity is an appropriate legacy for a neighborhood that has been preaching tolerance for more than 350 years. In 1657, a group of residents sent a letter – the Flushing Remonstrance – to the governor of what was then the Dutch colony of New Netherlands, arguing the cause of religious freedom. The letter protested the Governor’s
Ordinance declaring that any person entertaining a Quaker was to be fined. Today, there are signs welcoming visitors in many languages along Flushing Freedom Mile.
The Marco LaGuardia Hotel & Suites by Lexington is a no-brainer for travelers looking for a place to stay near LaGuardia airport. It’s also ideal for those in town for the U.S. Open or for baseball fans catching a game at nearby Citi Field. A free shuttle takes guests anywhere within three miles of the hotel – try finding a deal like that in Manhattan!
