Checking in to the Ravel Hotel
The Quick and Dirty
As Long Island City’s first luxury boutique hotel, The Ravel Hotel features sixty-three chicly designed guestrooms, each overlooking a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. From the lavishly spacious rooms that boast 9-feet-tall ceilings and the relaxing cityscape view from your own private balcony to the luxury of its spa-like bathrooms, the Ravel offers guests a true outlet to relieve the stresses of life. At the Ravel Hotel, guests are sure to experience the excitement of New York City blended with the serenity and comfort of an out-of-city getaway.
Why This Place Rocks
This was the amazing view from our room’s balcony. Nuff Said.
Basic rooms run for $140-$199 per night (plus they often have additional specials / discounts). I guarantee that you won’t find a boutique hotel in Manhattan with the same kind of luxury amenities as The Ravel at this bargain basement price.
Chic and modern rooms featuring top of the line Kohler faucets, a 42” Phillips flat screen TV, and hypo-allergenic goose down bedding.
Be sure to take advantage of Ravel’s complimentary shuttle service to the nearby subway stops. As this area is still “up and coming” and still developing, walking around is not advised, especially at night.
Dining at Penthouse808, the Ravel’s rooftop restaurant, is a must. Nosh on affordable pan-Asian fair while taking in a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline. Menu highlights include the sesame tuna sashimi flatbread ($15), the Japanese BBQ salmon ($19), and the pistachio tempura ice cream with caramelized bananas ($9).
Beautiful hotel. Beautiful clientele. Budget friendly rates.
