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 extremely pleased.

The hotel was the perfect addition. My out of town guests who had never been to New York utilized the hotel rooms. They felt comfortable and were treated like royalty.

If I could get married again, I would have it at the Penthouse 8-08, in fact, if you are getting married that is the number one place you should consider. Between the amazing view, attentive event coordinators, and the hotel, you really can't go wrong! Trust me!

I couldn't ask for a better wedding. The venue was amazing, the view was amazing and the staff was amazing too. Our wedding coordinator Natassa helped us through every thing step by step and we felt at home whenever we had a meeting. She was on top of everything and made sure we had the wedding that we dreamed of. I would absolutely redo this night over again.

There are so many wonderful things I want to say about Ravel; I don't even know where to start! So I'll start with the top - Natassa. Natassa is the event coordinator at Ravel. If the view and the food haven't already sold you on this place (and truly, those alone probably could), then Natassa will. She is committed, friendly, detail-oriented, and just plain awesome. It's almost like you get a free wedding planner with the package. She loves what she does and it shows. We signed our contract with Ravel a year out, and Natassa answered TONS of emails, hosted all our visits to the site (and I stopped by a lot!), and always made us feel important and welcome. The actual wedding was true perfection, carried out impeccably by Natassa and her staff. Natassa never just answered yes when you asked if something was possible. She would answer YES, AND... top it with something you hadn't even considered possible. You guys, have your wedding here. Did I mention it's affordable? How I found this price in New York, and got this result, is still incredible to me. So lucky!

We were at the end of our rope looking for a venue in or around NYC that was amazing and fit our budget.... I began the search ALL over again after being completely disappointed with other venues.

We went to Penthouse808 and met with Natassa. She was SO accommodating and positive from the beginning. She is high energy and thinks outside of the box to make EVERYTHING work.

The communication is so quick and we booked the venue within a week or so, had an AMAZING tasting and they NAILED the food. My husband and I are both foodies so the menu was VERY important.
They worked with us to shift things around and make even the menu personal.

We went to the venue 3 or 4 times, with siblings, parents, and to do walk throughs of the timeline. Natassa, Meagan and Katrina are all SO responsive and professional. Not to mention amazing ladies that we will continue to hang out with even though the wedding is over!

Did we mention the view??? We had an amazing evening wedding with perfect weather (even if not, we had a game plan) Our guests were all blown away with the city skyline, the bridge, the lights...

Our friends and family are still talking about it!

We would recommend Penthouse808 to anyone looking for a seamless planning experience with the utmost professionalism and flexibility.

Thanks Penthouse808 & Team!

We had a wonderful and positive experience with the staff and events coordinator. Natassa was very patient and always took the time to listen to our ideas. She made great suggestions and always had good ideas to share. We enjoyed every moment of our wedding planning, from our first meeting with Natassa to the day of our wedding. Our guests enjoyed the food and drinks, and had a great time. We definitely recommend Penthouse808. The view was breath-taking, especially when the sun is going down and at night. We hope to return soon.

I had my wedding ceremony here 8/31/13. I dealt mostly with one event planner leading up to the event, Meagan. She is warm, friendly, and extremely responsive. She took care of details for me including booking rooms at the hotel with an improved rate, confirming valet parking would be available, and adjusting the time of the event to suit our schedule. She had even used the venue for her own wedding, always a good sign. The day of the event, Natassa took the lead. She is very assertive, but not in an obnoxious way. She gets the job done and doesn't come close to stepping on toes. Very graceful and difficult task. She was extremely helpful at controlling an extremely wild Egyptian/Polish wedding with plenty of guests from abroad. She did our run-through the day before also very smooth and time efficient. For someone I had just met she made me feel extremely comfortable. As far as the venue, I really enjoyed the space. I love the NYC view. I'm local but for our guests it was really a site to see. The area is industrial, take it or leave it. We loved it! My husband fancies himself a hipster, and I just liked the contrast of tough nyc meets romantic wedding. It can be as sparse or full of decor as you like. It will look beautiful either way. Our wedding was large (250 people). If that is the case I recommend you look into having valet parking for your guests. The size of the wedding is the only reason we weren't able to have the reception there as well. MOST IMPORTANTLY: The best part of this venue is that you can have an outdoor wedding with the benefit of knowing that there is a retractable glass rooftop that can be closed if the weather turns for the worst. I convinced myself that if it did rain it will still look pretty darn cool!

The place is beautiful and I was happy with everything.
Yet a few things happened during the reception (things that I noticed, and things that my family and friends alerted me about) that upset me a little bit:
1.the way your team started to move around the table was really not as discrete as you had promised us ; they were being not very nice to people and moving chairs and tables that had my guests' belongings on them. Even Giacomo lost his suit jacket for a while and eventually his best man found it again on the other side of the Penthouse. 2. Whenever they were collecting the tablecloths, they were not being attentive to the guests who were still finishing their food. 3. In collecting the tablecloths, they removed and trashed all of our beautiful flowers; my mother had to run in to the kitchen and get MY bouquet from them which was on her table and which was about to me trashed. I know that this might seem a little detail, but since you must know how expensive flowers are and how precious they are, it might be nice to ask the mother of the bride if they want to keep them. 4. your team did not at all arrange my flowers; there were not even the vases to put them in. My mother had to go around and lay them on the tables. 5. The cake moment didn't come out really as I was expecting. None of the guests had the glass of champagne in his hand for a toast, so we could not give a toast. I was also expecting the sparklers as we had arranged just few days before the wedding.. which sounded really exciting but never happened for some reason..?! 6. People started to come into the Penthouse at 11 pm --we had arranged for 11.30 pm. This is truly upsetting and I d like to understand how this could have happened, and I d like explanations on this point. 7. You never mentioned that people under 21 could not stay after midnight. Since you knew we had some people under 21, perhaps more than what your clients usually have, you should have informed us.
