  • My fiancé, our moms, and I took off work to travel into Queens to visit the venue. We had scheduled an appointment 3 days before the visit with someone (I don’t even know because their name wasn’t in the e-mail). The appointment was for 3pm, so we left around noon in order to combat the weather the traffic. We arrived around 1pm and sat down for lunch in the area when we received an e-mail saying that they could not honor our visit because of “engagements already scheduled to take place out of the office.” We were told the the host did not want to travel in the rain and traffic. We were all disgusting and upset that we had all taken off work to visit the venue. We called and asked if someone else could briefly show us the space since we were already in the area and they said NO they proceeded to ask if we could take off work again the next day to visit. There was ZERO respect. Glad they showed their true colors before I wrote the check.

  • Ravel Hotel is an amazing venue! My (now) husband and I are both from California originally. We’ve had so many weddings the last few years and wanted to do something different/ ”very NY.” I visited SO many venues, literally 20+ and they were either not what we were looking for or way out of our budget. To be honest, when we first visited Ravel we were not in love with it. We had toured Penthouse 808 on a rainy winter day. It was dark, the windows were all down, we saw no view. However, we decided to give it another chance because of the great package selection offered. On our second tour, we were shown the rooftop and absolutely fell in love. It was exactly what we were looking for, a rooftop wedding with a skyline view. We ended up using all three of their venue spaces, and our guests loved all of them. They took so many pictures. Angel, our coordinator, was great to work with as well. She answered so many of our questions and concerns throughout the planning process. Th... Read more

  • My (now) husband and I had already toured MANY wedding venues in Manhattan (one of which we had just received a contract for) when we stumbled upon Ravel Events at Ravel Hotel online. We are the type of people who say we need to get a visa just to leave Manhattan so when we decided to take a “trip”’ to Ravel Hotel, we joked about having a “destination” wedding. Upon arrival, we were impressed with the views but were concerned about being able to utilize/afford different locations within the hotel. Also, we read multiple mixed reviews about the property overall. As we were discussing this with the representative giving us the tour, Frank (co-owner and manager of Ravel Events) just happened to be in the foyer area. He came over and sat down to address our concerns. Frank was so candid about the history of Ravel, the restaurant, the club and more (they were in the midst of renovations and re-launching “Ravel Events”). Frank quickly earned our trust in such an unexpected wa... Read more

  • AMAZING - the food and staff were outstanding! The food alone will leave your guests impressed and it was more than we expected. The view is breathe-taking and will blow your guests away. Our cocktail hour took place on the rooftop and our reception was in the new beautiful Grand Ballroom with almost 350 guests. They were flexible and we had everything we asked for - ice luge, pig roast, photo booth, cigar table, bag pipers, money guns and more. We also worked through the hotel to provide our guests with transportation to and from Ravel Hotel to our ceremony at St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC. The hotel made an extra step to accommodate our guests by allowing an early check-in and upgrading our guests with a beautiful view from their rooms. When the reception ended the celebration continued on the rooftop at the Penthouse and we were provided great service and danced the night away....Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you to all the staff at Ravel Hotel - Delores, B... Read more

  • My husband and I were married here back in August 2017, but we booked our wedding at Penthouse 808 way before the ballroom was even complete! We could not have been happier with the final product. Our ceremony and rehearsal dinner were up on the rooftop - the most beautiful views! Our guests were gushing about them! Our very large wedding reception was in the brand new ballroom, which is absolutely stunning, and super modern. While I can go on and on about the beautiful space and even more amazing food (AMAZING food), I have to say Elyse and Dolores were the absolute best. Elyse was with us the entire ride, answering questions and updating us along the way. She was beyond professional, helpful, and quick to respond. We had started looking at the venue about 2 years before our wedding actually happened, so by the time it ended it felt as if we were old friends! The weekend of our wedding (we also had our rehearsal dinner at the venue) Elyse and Dolores treated us like royalty and made s... Read more

  • The team at the Ravel Hotel/Penthouse 808 made planning our wedding as easy as can be. We had both our ceremony and reception in the Penthouse 808 space and you would have thought we spent far more than we did. We, along with our guests, were beyond impressed with the venue, the food, and the décor. Everyone had a blast celebrating our big day. Betsy and Delores were attentive, accommodating, creative, and beyond helpful in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding day. The team worked seamlessly with us (the grooms) and our wedding coordinator, Melinda—who happened to be LA-based—to ensure a wedding to remember. The same can be said for their coordination and collaboration with our photographers, DJ, and photo booth vendors. The day of our ceremony and reception went off without a flaw. The team worked hand-in-hand with our wedding coordinator to make sure everything thing was buttoned up—timeline, vendor arrivals and setup, and the flow from ceremony, to cocktail h... Read more

  • At first I admit I was a bit skeptical of Penthouse808 based on reviews I had read, but I am so glad I took a chance. I was searching for a place (and we visited A LOT of venues) where we could host a true "New York City" wedding and the Ravel Hotel's rooftop with its breath-taking views could not have been more perfect. Penthouse808 has the full package - amazing food, an accommodating wedding coordinator (although there were a few unforeseen bumps in the road, Karina was great and helped us through it all) and an in-house DJ who crafted the perfect playlist to keep the party going all night long. We had our ceremony there, followed by cocktail hour, reception and after-party (on weekends the venue turns into a club at 11:30). Our guests took countless photos of the NYC skyline and gushed over the food all night. Our cocktail hour consisted of passed appetizers (meatballs, risotto balls, lobster rolls, chicken & waffles, and spicy tuna, to name a few) and 3 stations (Mediterranean, Pa... Read more

  • Penthouse 808 saved the day for us! After 6+months of unprofessional and terrible communication with our planned rehearsal dinner venue we canceled and booked with Penthouse about a week before our date. They were incredibly kind and helpful, and their package was such a better value too! Our guests got so much food and everything was delicious. Benny and his staff were also amazing at helping us dodge and stay comfortable/dry during a hurricane rolling through their open air lounge. We had been to the restaurant several times last year and were confident our guests would enjoy their unique cuisine and amazing atmosphere and city views. We are so happy we switched and can't wait to go back soon!

  • I'll start by saying that our friends and family have labeled our wedding ceremony - The Best Wedding Ever! our Venue Coordinator, Elyse Williams was always responsive, detailed oriented and informative. It was our first wedding, we wanted simple and fun, timeliness and great food. that's exactly what we got out of the non-traditional wedding for a couple like ourselves.

  • I was born and raised in Queens NY moved to FL. I had attended the restaurant and hotel years ago. I seen the retractable glass rooftop and it was beautiful then. Recently the hotel did a massive renovation to Penthouse808 which added more square footage and more spaces to cater to many different events. They have great backup plans in case of rain which is super important for a wedding or any occasion for that matter. The view was amazing regardless of rain/cludy or shine. Overall the service was great. I must say that it was a bit stressful since the event planner staff was changed 3 times during our wedding process which caused alot of anxiety because all the staff would have a different response and it ended up being our words versus the ex-employee. At the end we did recieve what was originally promised. The overall hotel was dirty due to construction of a new hotel adjacent. But the venue space and space in which the guest would walk through was overall clean. Staff wa... Read more

  • So happy we chose Penthouse 808 for our wedding! We were a little worried about how things would turn out on the wedding day because of all the construction and some changes in staff. But on the day of everything was great. The staff of the restaurant and the hotel were amazing all weekend, they were professional, kind, and very accommodating. Whenever we needed something by the time we turned around someone was on it. The food was delicious and the guests love the tuna option. And of course the view was amazing, all the guests couldn't stop talking about how great the venue was and they had the best time. Its not your typical hotel ballroom and i loved that about this place. Also its deceivingly big, i was worried about how many tables would fit on the upper ledge and that it would be tight, we had plenty of room. One heads up about the hotel, just like other reviews i read, the club is very loud until 4am, so put ear plugs in your guests welcome bags! Overall I definitely suggest ... Read more

  • We went through 4 event planners during the planning our wedding. They made a million promises to get us to book this place. After we booked and signed those promises were null and void. But now we were locked. When we got to the actual day we were both a mess, stressed and nervous. The sound system didn’t work correctly and kept cutting, the time line was a mess and my husband and I were running around trying to keep things together. We were promised that the items we wanted including Jameson, Jack Daniels etc, was a part of our package. Later, we found out that our GUESTS WERE ACTUALLY PAYING FOR THIS. The worst part was that at 9:56, 4 minutes until the wedding ended the planner asked if we wanted to do the bouquet toss, I agreed and she literally reached over and pulled out the plug from the iPad. No warning, no asking to get our MC to tell people just family and friends on the dance floor stuck. Right away staff started removing the belongings of our guests and put them in the c... Read more

  • I stepped out of the elevator on the 6th floor, looked straight ahead and fell in love! I am talking about the Penthouse 8-08 at The Ravel Hotel. The memorizing view was enough to soldify the deal, and I hadn't even talked to the Event Director and priced it out! Aside from the view, because I can go on and on about that, the coordinators are awesome and attentive. Responses to my EVERY questions were quickly answered and also solved within a day. I felt at ease when planning my wedding. They provided practical suggestions that would make my wedding not only look amazing in pictures, but feel that way as well. The food was A.MA.ZING! The guests actually continue to rave about cocktail hour. From the chicken and waffle kabobs to the cinnamon crust lamb chops, every single item on the menu was delicious. What's great food without OPEN BAR! My guests definitely enjoyed that part as well, and with our specialty cocktail drink that matched the color theme of the wedding, I was extre... Read more
