My husband and I stayed in the Ravel hotel for 7 nights for our tenth anniversary trip in June 2014 and found it to be very good value for money. The room itself was absolutely lovely, very spacious and very quiet although we were positioned on the ground floor. The hotel was approximately 10 minutes walk from the nearest subway... More

Have known of The Ravel for 6 years, having enjoyed their rooftop lounge on numerous occasions. From the Long Island City side of the East River, their rooftop's lounge offers a magnificent unobstructed view of the entire East Side of Manhattan. We were doing a photo shoot nearby but had to book a hotel at last minute. Was very fortunate... More

I've been to this hotel numerous times and decided to return with family. The rates are much higher than a couple years ago and there are plenty of hotels in Manhattan for cheaper. Our TV remote didn't work. We went downstairs twice for 2 new remotes which also did not work. 3 broken remotes later, we gave up. Also the... More

The hotel is currently under construction, no enough parking. The hotel location could be the only pro. I was thinking that I can see the Manhattan skyline. However, 1st, it's not close to the river bank, 2nd, there is some other wild construction/industrial zone between the hotel and the river, 3rd, the hotel is in the middle of no where.... More

Having read so many negative reports on the Ravel Hotel I was a little apprehensive. This disappeared the moment we walked into reception. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Our room was ready for our 7 day stay and was exactly what I booked. If you are expecting rooms like the Ritz stay in Manhattan. Yes there were scratches on... More

Hotel was very nice and modern. Rooms were smooth! Night life on the roof was cozy and not rowdy. Drinks typical $12-14. Blueberry Mojitos is a must natural Blueberries. However, DO NOT, again DO NOT consume ANYTHING from the room fridge or goodies that stand out! Peanut jar was $14, come on! Since I am an honest man, when asked... More

The good: decent rooms (though that can vary from room to room...ours was nice). GREAT price. Good location relative to Manhattan. For the price, I would stay there again but NOT on weekends (read below). The "Not So Good": This hotel isn't is an area with many amenities within walking distance, mostly surrounded by warehouses and industrial buildings. Parking lot... More

Where to start...We booked here because it was close to a wedding venue. We got a suite due to wanting a place where people could gather if needed. We arrived to no heat in the room, were told the maintenance guy would fix it, but he did not. We were moved to a room on the 5th floor that was... More
