We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Actually, Hurricane Irene hit metro NYC in the middle of our stay and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. It gets a bit crazy on weekends with the club scene on the roof, but it's just a...

Staying mid-week is a dream! Everything always goes very smoothly. Friendly staff, continental breakfast, comfortable rooms, sometimes even a free upgrade! I stayed once on the weekends and though the hotel was more crowded and difficult to get a cab from (because of the night club on the rooftop), I would still recommend it. The rates are good for NYC...

I have just come back from the Ravel this week and had to write a review. The hotel is approx. 40 minutes to an hour and 20 minutes from JFK depending on the time of day you travel. We landed at 4pm so we hit the rush hour traffic and the price for a taxi to JFK was $40. The...

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....
