Expected MorePosted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: Staff was friendly
Cons: The valets could be more professional. The furniture could be better maintained.
Location: The hotel was in an industrial area. Very dark and deserted at night.
Online the hotel listed "free parking". Parking lot held about 15 vehicles, it was filled to overflowing. Young men were there who announced themselves at valet's, I didn't trust them. Late at night I parked two blocks away. The sofa had burn wholes in it. Furniture was scratched. I was uncomfortable there.

Paid additional fee for breakfast that didnt existPosted Jul 23, 2014
Water leak, uneven floors. Not worth the price. I had to request a room cleaning. This was not performed as a daily duty. The assigned waiter mixed my orders several times. First and final stay at this establishment.

stayed in room 206- it was ok until the roof top disco (floor 6) started its music that did not end until 4 am- needless to say, it was hard to get much sleep with the music reverberating throughout the hotel-

No, no, no, no, no, noPosted Jun 29, 2014
Neighborhood is not family friendly, to get to restraurants or places of interest takes significant time and money. Under construction and view was nothing like pics. There is no way I would let my family stay there knowing we would be out after dark, especially with children. Seemed to cater to rooftop parties. Room was ok, the privacy between bathroom and beds was a slide out petition so you could hear every fart made. We stayed 30 minutes, then moved to hotel in downtown area

Pros: Clean, comfortable, spacious, well run, attentive. We really could not fault this hotel. We were very happy to have stayed there.
Cons: They are doing a big expansion at present which entails some daytime noise and a bit of dust sheeting here and there. Due to complete later this year
Location: The local subway stations serve a number of lines into Manhattan (just one stop !) and to the airport. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle
Booked this on-line after reading encouraging reviews. The hotel is a bit off the beaten track and our cab from JFK got slightly lost. (The hotel have a laminated card for guests with precise taxi directions) We had a large ground floor room with a couch as well as a double bed. It was quite quiet although we kept the blind down at night as there is a sidewalk passing the window. The local area is a bit grungy but we felt quite safe as we walked to and from the subway (We are in our 70's) The room was well appointed and comfortable with adequate storage space and a very roomy bathroom albeit in an unusual layout. The absolute highlight of any stay at the Ravel is the rooftop. The restaurant is good (but not cheap) and the view is just fantastic. You see the whole Manhattan skyline across the East River. The rooftop is also set up as a night spot with disco lights and we saw guests arriving on most evenings. We didn't try it out ourselves though and it wasn't in any way intrusive. They also serve breakfast there - again what a setting ! The breakfast is very good - cereal, yoghourt, eggs, bacon, toast ,juice, coffee, tea,and if that's not enough they will cook you a fresh omelette !- OK so it's $13 a head but it's worth it.

Cannot fault the Ravel HotelPosted May 23, 2014
Pros: The staff are the standout memory of the hotel for me! The rooms were also amazing!!
Cons: I don't think I found anything that would need to be improved.
Location: There is a bus shuttle service available to the local subway station. You are only about 10-15 minutes away from Times Square!
I stayed at the Ravel with my mother. I had booked the holiday as a surprise for my mothers 70th birthday. The staff are incredibly helpful, and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. On the day we were heading home, instead of sending us away to find an internet cafe, they printed off my boarding passes for me. The shuttle service was brilliant. and we definitely needed one day, when the heavens opened with a vengeance!! The rooms are HUGE!! so clean and plush! Bathroom was amazing.
