About the Ravel Hotel
The Ravel Hotel is an upscale, boutique hotel with an almost-in-Manhattan location just across the bridge from Midtown Manhattan. Long Island City’s proximity to Manhattan, trendy reputation and stunning city views makes it a popular choice for locals who enjoy an urban lifestyle without the Manhattan-price tag; visitors will appreciate this up-and-coming neighborhood for the very same reason … and the swanky rooftop bar, luxe rooms and sleek décor are not too shabby, either.
The Ravel Hotel is situated off Manhattan’s east side in the borough of Queens, just at the edge of the 59th Street Bridge. Long Island City’s 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 – known as Little Athens – is popular with visiting and local foodies seeking authentic Greek cuisine. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the 7, N, Q, E, R and M train lines so the museums and galleries of Manhattan are easily accessible. Shuttles leave on the hour, every hour, from 7 am to 11 pm. You can also request a pick-up from the station; just give the hotel a few minutes’ notice.
The 63 rooms at the Ravel Hotel are modern, spacious and luxurious. Rooms are decorated in shades of grey, orange and white, and feature plush beds that are outfitted with pillow-top mattresses, 400-thread-count linens and cushy down duvets. Other in-room facilities include large flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, a minibar, a coffee/tea maker and an in-room safe that accommodates a laptop. Bathrooms are luxurious, too, featuring rainfall showers and designer toiletries. But perhaps the most decadent amenity of all is the city views; high ceilings and big windows make the most of this stunning feature but these quintessential NYC views are perhaps best enjoyed from the hotel’s rooftop restaurant and lounge, Penthouse808. Here you can nibble on tasty Pan-Asian fare, like tuna tartare tacos, short rib flatbreads and Japanese barbecue salmon, while you sip on artisan cocktails, soak in the city skyline and bask in the cool Long Island City (LIC) vibe – all accentuated by a live DJ and glowing firepits. Suites feature a separate sitting area while Superior suites include a private outdoor balcony and deep soaking tub. Additional amenities at the Ravel Hotel include a gym, a small onsite café and a stylish lobby lounge.
This hotel is perfect for visitors who want a cool boutique atmosphere with killer style, amenities and views. The lively rooftop bar, modern décor and cool location is a hit with trendy travelers.
