Boutique Hotel with Contemporary Guest Rooms near Downtown Great Neck Restaurants and Shopping
F. Scott Fitzgerald set his classic American novel The Great Gatsby in the town of West Egg, a fictitious New York suburb modeled after the author's hometown of Great Neck, Long Island. Though the town in the book is characterized by affluent residents and lavish mansion parties, Great Neck—just 20 miles from New York City—is now recognized for its relative tranquility. Certain establishments, however, still recall the sumptuous allure of the Gatsby era: nestled in the heart of town, The Andrew Hotel decorates its guest rooms with marble, mohair, suede, and raw silk.
The hotel's white-stucco exterior and black window awnings announce its sleek, minimalist aesthetic. Inside, marble accents and cherry and limed-oak furnishings lend to the classy vibe in the guest rooms. The leather-paneled beds in executive king terrace guest rooms are dressed in decadent suede and silk fabrics, and in junior suites, suede couches and large black-and-white prints style the sitting area.
The hotel's just a short drive from New York City and other nearby attractions, including the Miracle Mile shopping district. Here, you can visit Americana Manhasset to dine at an intimate Italian trattoria or to browse more than 50 high-end shops and designer boutiques.
Great Neck, Long Island: Upscale Boutiques and Restaurants Just Outside of Manhattan
Many notable figures, including Paul Newman and playwright Eugene O'Neill, made their homes and to-scale butter sculptures of their family members in Great Neck, which sits on the North Shore of Long Island. The town is a 25-minute train ride from Manhattan's Penn Station, though visitors need not travel far to find entertainment. Two blocks from the hotel, more than 250 boutiques and restaurants dot the Village of Great Neck Plaza. Here, in the bustling town center, English Tudor buildings, Victorian-style churches, and sepia-toned city maps offer a glimpse into the town's 350-year history.
