A new Roslyn hotel celebrated a successful first 90 days with a ribbon cutting and reception Tuesday night.
Town of North Hempstead officials and local community leaders packed the Magnolia Room of the Hilton Garden Inn Roslyn to officially welcome the hotel to the North Shore.
“June 12 was the first day we opened the doors for our guests, and today is Sept. 12, so today is our 90th day,” William Gomez, the general manager, said. “As for as the operation is concerned, we are already No. 1 on TripAdvisor out of all the area hotels.”
According to the site, the hotel on Harbor Park Drive on the border of Roslyn and Port Washington has a 4.5-star rating from 58 reviews in the hotel’s first three months in operation. Rooms start at $161 per night.
Hotel guests in all 165 rooms and suites have access to amenities like 24-hour fitness and business centers, complimentary WiFi, in-room Keurig coffeemaker, microwave, mini-refrigerator, and on-site dining and laundry options.
The Hilton Garden Inn Roslyn also features an indoor pool and whirlpool.
Co-owners Larry Levine and Paul Amoruso thanked the Town of North Hempstead for helping secure the first branded hotel on the North Shore that Amoruso said strives to work with local companies as much as travelers.
“We’re looking forward to working with all the corporations in the area and seeing how we can accommodate you,” Amoruso said.
The hotel offers more than 6,000 square feet of meeting and event space in both indoor and outdoor spaces, and the new location has been a popular with businesses in the neighboring Harbor View Corporate Park.
Concord Hospitality CEO Mark Laport, whose company co-owns the hotel with Levine and Amoruso, said his company has partnered with 95 hotel developments across the country and said he was thrilled to have a stake in the Roslyn community.
“I hope you all will challenge us again and again and stay here or direct folks to stay here, because I think you’ll agree once you’ve experienced this hotel, you’ll say ‘I’m going to come back and I prefer to come back here,'” Laport said.
