We booked far in advance and were pleasently surprised when we arrived. The accomodation needs a little renewing but the staff are all extremely friendly and very knowledgable. The free shuttle to and from the subway is excellent and runs into the late evening so no worries about safety. Cocktails in the bar at penthouse 808 are fab too!

This hotel is located in the heart of an industrial area, however the views from my room were indeed spectacular. Looking over onto Manhattan lights was great. If you are seeking a different New York experience, maybe this is the hotel for you. This hotels hosts a nightclub on the fifth floor, which is sometimes rented out for private parties....

While planning our trip to NYC in October 2011 we knew that we were going to be faced with high prices for Hotel rooms. We decided to look outside of Manhattan and found the Ravel. We were a bit hesitant because of the area but it was mainly industrial and the walk to the subway took only about 10 minutes...

Ravel was the venue that my daughter chose for her wedding. The event coordinator assigned, Annie, was great in every way. The venue was beautiful, the food outstanding and the accomodations were great. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the weather which was out of our control. I highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a wonderful...

Planning a short visit to NYC we decided to stay outside Manhattan for two reasons - and the Ravel hit the mark on both. First - cost. Manhattan hotels feel the need (and seem able) to charge inflated prices because of where they are. Ok for many thats the buzz but there is more. Second - the view. On Manhattan...

We stayed at the Ravel hotel for 4 nights and didn't think it was too bad at all. Let's be clear - this is not Manhatten but we didn't pay Manhatten prices for our room either. Yes, it is in an industrial area but we didn't once feel unsafe and we walked back from the subway every night. We also...
