This is an achievement that distinguishes the hotel by inclusion on a listing of less than 6% of the nearly 28,000 properties approved by AAA throughout North America.

On Thursday, November 17th the hotel held a press event and reception to celebrate the achievement. Garden City resident and actress Susan Lucci spoke and told the story of working at the old hotel in the 1960’s and meeting her husband, Helmut Huber, there. He was the Executive Chef at the time.

Also in attendance were representatives from AAA North America as well as Discover Long Island President Kristen Jarnagin. The hotel’s owner Morris Moinian, President of Fortuna Realty Group addressed the crowd in the Grand Ballroom as hotel employees stood behind him on stage. Moinian purchased the hotel in 2012 from the Nelkin family and has since completely renovated the hotel at a cost of over $35 million.
