Whenever I visit in New York I always stay somewhere in Queens, simply because you can get real value for money hotel wise and its only a $25 cab ride in and out of the centre of manhattan. You could pay say $6-700 a night for times square but I really cant see why you would waste your money when... More

We were looking forward to staying at the Ravel and getting a great view of the Manhattan east side skyline. Well we got a king size room on the first floor with a view of the street through the metal bars on the window. We should have made sure we could get a room with a view and not doing... More

Ravel Hotel Review Our stay took place in May of 2014. My wife and I were stopping in NYC for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We chose the Ravel Hotel based on three major things: 1. The location in proximity to Manhattan 2. The luxurious appearance of the hotel and the rooms themselves; and 3. The view! It... More

Super friendly front desk and very professional. Absolutely loved the decor and layout of the room. I could see where some people would not like the open bathroom design though. I tend to like some privacy while going to the bathroom but I travel alone so it was not a problem. Great view of New York City skyline and the... More

A lot to like about this place. Great bathrooms, spacious and modern. Fantastic view from the penthouse level. Funky restaurant on the top floor. Free shuttle options from the hotel to stations and vice-versa And only a short Met ride into Manhattan However, it is a long way away from anything. The nearby area is a bit dodgy, you wouldn't...

We chose to stay at Ravel for our mini moon night after our wedding on the way back home. The views and balcony from the room were excellent and this is probably what we loved about it the most. Disappointed at how run down the hotel was since they consider themselves to be a "Boutique" and trendy hotel. The chair... More
