Rave at the Ravel

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: Views, staff, shuttle service, private car service.
Cons: General decoration is starting to tire in places. The knowledge of local taxi drivers could be improved as the majority did not know the Hotel!
Location: The location was very good for the views over the East River to Manhattan and close to public transport services.
Overall a very enjoyable time, good facilities, great views over the East River, close enough to public transport so even though the hotel is outside of Manhattan it only takes 15 minutes to cross over.

Great hotel

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Cons: Breakfast is a little overpriced for what it is.
Only really used hotel as a sleeping bed as out most of the time but really good hotel. Great view (on 5th floor) and really friendly staff. I would definitely stay again. Great free shuttle bus to any subway.

Hotel was nice and conveniently located close to the subway station. Hotel staff is very friendly and accomodating as well as informative. Beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline! Restaurant on rooftop is nice, but the food selection is very limited and pricey. Overall, had a very pleasant experience and would recommend to friends and family.

Good news. . .and bad news.

Posted Mar 23, 2014
First the good: (1) the price, which is hard to beat; (2) proximity, especially to the UES, Midtown and Central Park; (3) the room (comfortable and nicely designed). Now the bad: (1) the walk from the subway is desolate, bleak and unnerving; (2) the hotel wants you to pay $25 to cross the bridge to Manhattan (a cab is less than half that); (3) the woman at the desk was terrible: defensive and unhelpful when asked about the neighborhood and travel to Manhattan. Firing her would be a good start for what could be a reasonable choice for those on a budget seeking a good night's sleep just minutes from Manhattan.
