Take a break from the ordinary at our hotel on the Cornell Tech campus. Accessible by the F Train the tram, NYC Ferry, and car, Graduate Roosevelt Island is a scholastic retreat in the middle of the East River.

Designed by internationally renowned design firm Snøhetta, the hotel combines bright, modern spaces with scenic views of both Manhattan and Queens. Here, old school meets New Age as futuristic themes, colorful motifs and pops of color blend with nods to Roosevelt Island history.

With breathtaking views Manhattan and Queens, Graduate Roosevelt Island is the smartest place to stay in New York City. A scholastic retreat in the middle of the East River — easily accessible by the F Train, tram, NYC Ferry or car — the hotel blends island history with the innovative energy of Cornell Tech and its campus.

Here, the futuristic, fashionable and the functional meld to create a space that’s bright, open and always interesting. A 13-foot statue of artist Hebru Brantley’s iconic Flyboy welcomes you to the hotel. In the lobby, 5,000 square feet of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves take you back to the stacks. Grab a coffee and settle into one of our comfy, colorful couches.

Up in our guest rooms, enjoy unobstructed views of the New York skyline from every window. Looking to the past, present and future for inspiration, rooms are infused with Americana, Roosevelt Island history and touches of that Cornell Tech spirit.

So whether you’re seeing New York for the first time or looking for a new view of your favorite city, we’re here to make your visit memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip-smart staff will show you around Roosevelt Island and help you see NYC from a fresh perspective.
