About the Ramada Long Island City
Perched along the East River in the emerging, hip neighborhood of Long Island City (LIC for short) in Queens, the Ramada Long Island City offers travelers comfortable, affordable accommodations that are off-the-beaten-tourist-track but still within easy reach of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, too.
A short 15-minute trip on the 7 train from Grand Central or Times Square, LIC is known as the outer-borough art capital. This trendy and thriving arts community is home to the experimental and innovative MoMA PS1, Socrates Sculpture Park, the serene Noguchi Museum and the Museum of the Moving Image. Nearby Astoria – also known as Little Athens – is popular with visiting and local foodies seeking authentic Greek cuisine. LIC’s proximity to Manhattan and stunning views of the city skyline make it a popular choice for locals who enjoy an urban lifestyle but can’t exactly afford the price of precious real estate on the Manhattan side of the East River. Visitors will appreciate the neighborhood for the very same reasons.
The Ramada Long Island City is conveniently situated just off Manhattan’s east side, near both the 59th Street Bridge and the Roosevelt Island Bridge. Nestled between Astoria and Greenpoint in Brooklyn, the hotel is a perfect choice for foodies and art lovers. For those who prefer taking in Manhattan’s dining and arts scene, the Ramada Long Island City is within minutes of the reliable N, Q and 7 train lines. The hotel is also convenient to JFK International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.
Rooms are clean and comfortable, appointed with comfortable beds and modern decor in soothing earth tones. Each room includes a refrigerator, flat-screen TV with cable and satellite channels, complimentary Wi-Fi and a coffee maker. There’s also a free hot breakfast every day – which includes the usual tasty suspects of eggs, bagels, pastries, coffee and juice – and a fitness center for those who want to counter the calories of all those delicious spinach pies and sheep’s-milk feta from nearby Astoria. Kids under 17 stay free with an adult.
