About Verve Hotel, an Ascend Collection Hotel
Situated right off I-495 for easy access to airports and central Manhattan, the Verve Hotel, an Ascend Collection Hotel in Long Island City has everything a visitor to the city might need, from refrigerators and free Wi-Fi to city views and convenient access to Midtown’s top attractions.
Long Island City is a trendy and somewhat industrial-looking neighborhood on the Queens side of the Queensboro Bridge. This neighborhood offers visitors affordable accommodations that are off-the-beaten-tourist-track but still within easy reach of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, too.
Guests will find the Verve Hotel, a six-story corner building, just two blocks from Queensboro Plaza subway station and about a half-mile from the Hunterspoint Avenue Long Island Railroad Station. Travelers with vehicles can park in the hotel's garage. The stalwart Roxy Studios is directly across the street, and has been offering hourly recording sessions to musicians for more than 30 years. Long Island City (LIC for short) is a trendy and thriving arts community so guests should also allow time to check out its artsy offerings, including the experimental and innovative MoMA PS1, Socrates Sculpture Park, the Museum of Moving Image and the serene Noguchi Museum. The Verve Hotel is also within walking distance from the film and television production facilities of Silvercup Studios.
Rooms at the Verve Hotel, an Ascend Collection Hotel are basic but not at all lacking; guests will find quality bed linens, flat-screen TVs with cable channels, refrigerators, coffee makers, complimentary Wi-Fi, a desk and additional seating. Some rooms feature microwaves and whirlpool bathtubs. Rooms also offer a star amenity – stunning (and bargain!) views of the competing spires of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings.
Additional hotel amenities include on-site laundry facilities, a game room, exercise room, a business center with computers and printers and a complimentary hot breakfast. The hotel also offers a relaxing outdoor patio with barbeque grills so extended-stay visitors can really feel like locals.

Budget travelers will appreciate the in-room refrigerators and microwaves (some rooms), the free breakfast and Wi-Fi and the outdoor patio with BBQ grill.
