Yotel is to open its second property in New York by late 2020.

Located in Long Island City, this Yotel property is 20 minutes from Manhattan, and within 45 minutes from LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The 178-key hotel offers a perfect blend of business and leisure amenities. Guests can access multi-functional public areas, co-working and meeting spaces here. They can relax and unwind at the indoor and outdoor rooftop terrace and bar, which offer stunning views of the Manhattan skyline.

Hubert Viriot, Chief Executive Officer, Yotel said, “We stepped onto the global stage with our first city hotel in New York City. It was here that our clever design and technology-driven concept, offering guests extraordinary value and convenience in the heart of Manhattan, was embraced for the first time. Since the launch, our city brand has expanded into many sought-after global locations. We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to be back where it all began, and together with our owners, Eastone Equities, can’t wait to introduce our unique hospitality offering to Long Island City.”

The new hotel announcement comes at a time when Amazon is preparing to open its new headquarters in Long Island City — which is fast growing as a technology hub and is thereby attracting young and rising entrepreneurs. yotel.com
