We traveled as a group of 6 adults at the beginning of May/ end of April. We had been recommended to stay in the middle of manhattan but we really liked the contemporary image of the ravel hotel.
We are glad we decided to stay out of the hustle and bustle as it meant we could have a view of New York from our beds! The staff were very helpful and friendly, if there was a problem it was solved without a fuss and quickly (we couldn't open our safe).
The rooms were clean and spacious, the bed was amazing comfortable and we really enjoyed the open plan bathrooms.
The hotel is expanding so there is building work, this isn't a problem as rooms do not overlook it and the building was not noisy at all...so it should not put you off booking.
There is a shuttle bus to the metro stations which we had no problems with and was defiantly better than walking!
Overall we really enjoyed New York and The Ravel Hotel and would thoroughly recommend it!
