    This hotel has an excellent location - a stone's throw from Carnegie Hall and lots of high end shopping. A bonus was being across the street from a theatre we were previously unaware of, MTC - Manhattan Theatre Club - home to the theatre company, The Pearl. We saw an excellent play there, Wittenberg. Yes, the hotel is too expensive, but this is Manhattan.

    Having us pay the entire stay as a non-refundable down payment is a little harsh.

    Thw Blakely hotel was one of the best hotels we have stayed in for a long time. From the front of house staff to housekeeping, everyone was so helpful and obliging. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds were the most confortable we have ever slept in, in a hotel. It is very central to most places and best of all, we were only a short walk to central park where all the world is on display. Would highly recommend this hotel.

    We had included a continental breakfeast and paid extra to avail of this and it was just as we thought it would be which was fine, however, the only disappointing experience we had was, as we arrived every morning, we would be shown to our seats, handed a menu and a small piece of paper on which you put your room number, and the recommended tip of 2 dollars per person. There were four of us and we were staying for seven days, so a total of $56 extra was to be given to a staff who coulden't really understand us as their english wasn't very good, never, never a smile or a "good morning". Now, this is America, New York, where everyone and his mother gets a tip but I had serious issue with this.

    The location was perfect to access all the sites. Was able to get around easily. The concierge was very helpful, as well as the doorman, but the front desk staff were less approachable and not very friendly. The rooms were very clean, and very comfortable in size. The water pressure and hot water for showering was great ! a must after a long day walking.

    It was too noisy. I realize that given the fact that we were in the thick of the city, some noise was expected, but our room faced the back and there was way too much noise all night from the trucks loading and unloading things all night!

    > small room for the price ... > not a large choice of food for breakfast... > a slowly elevators...

    excellent location, close to everything, spacious rooms for NY.

    One of the only two elevators wasn't working during the 4 days we were there but luckily we were on the 3rd floor. The generator outside of our hotel window didn't let us sleep at night, get a higher floor, but make sure the elevators work.

    An old style hotel in midtown with excellent service. The staff have right attitudes for their jobs.

    Only one elevator was working. It took 20 minutes to went down one day.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Room comfort, heating was excellent, excelent choice of soap and shampoo brand, keeping the new toilet paper wrapped

    Breakfast could be better and more seating spaces needed

    Good location for mid town business. Hertz rental location next door. Good room, comfortable bed. Very kind house-keeping staff.

    Elevators are very slow and wait-time excessive. Even on the 16th floor (I stayed in #1603 during 4 nights), the street noise gets into the room - the windows are old and close poorly. Staff is not too dedicated. Lobby is very small and not inviting. The hotel is used as overflow hotel for other, tourist hotels, and the lobby often crowded. Internet speed is frequently slowing down. Ny has many old hotels - this is one that kept well. But elevators, public spaces and rooms show the age. The price is at the top-end for the quality offered.

    Great position and friendly helpful concierge

    The staff in the breakfast room, not friendly and one person at the point of ignoring you when their toaster was out of action, they also give you a recommended tip ticket, regardless of poor service.We went out for the last 2 mornings and paid for our own breakfast.

  • Group of friends

    Bad and rude behaviour of staff. Everytıme try to force you pay more and force for tip. I was realy disappointed of this hotel. Never will go again.

  • Family with children

    Very good location. Just minutes walk to central park, restaurants, and shopping area fifth avenue. Easy get to subway stations link to several subway lines going to Time square, Penn railway station and jfk airport. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Our room is in reasonable size (we stayed in family room, not samll) and clean.

    Wifi signal is very poor in our room (502), difficult to get internet connection. Air conditioner working sound is loud, and room is noisy as subway run all days and nights. We turn off airconditioner at night but still hear buzzing noise outside.
