Fodor's Expert Review The Rockaway Hotel + Spa

108-10 Rockaway Beach Dr., Queens, New York, 11694, USA Fodor's Choice

The Rockaways had been gaining popularity for years but its status was cemented with this trendy newcomer, giving surfers and sunbathers a reason to stay overnight—guests can expect a beachy and mid-century modern decor, with lots of light teak wood, rattan and linen accents, and marine blues and grays that catch the sunlight. The plant-strewn rooftop restaurant offers views all the way to the Manhattan skyline, and of course there's a serene pool with loungers and a snack bar, plus a spa, if you want to get away from the beachfront masses. One- and two-bedroom bungalows include kitchenettes.
