If iconic New York views and an extensive guest list have been keeping you from finding a wedding venue then put The Ravel Hotel in Queens on your list to check out. This updated hotel has stunning views of the Manhattan skyline as well as many different ballrooms and comprehensive services for weddings. The Grand Ballroom can accommodate an astounding 900 for a standing cocktail dinner (or stations) and up to 45 seated with room for a dance floor. The windows around the room provide the backdrop of the skyline and also have an outdoor patio for hosting your guests during cocktail hour.

For outdoor weddings the Ravel Rooftop has breathtaking views of the city and the East River and is Long Islands only climate-controlled rooftop wedding venue. Since the roof is retractable, it allows you to be able to choose if the event should be hosted indoors or out, but either way the views never stop. It seats up to 225 for a sit-down dinner. And let’s not forget about the other rooftop experience, the Ten Rooftop, which has a private pool and a bar! Ten can host up to 225. The sunset views at Ten can be spectacular!

Outdoor terraces, firepits, and small areas for guests to mingle comfortably are all over the property. They really have thought of everything you might need!. The Revel Hotel is an excellent location in Queens for a wedding with a "destination" feel for your guests. It’s a great little getaway but not too far to travel for anyone in the city.
