This hotel is just wonderful, and quite unexpected because the price was so reasonable. The staff was so attentive, the room and bathroom were beautiful, the bed was comfy as can be, the room was stocked with everything you would need including plenty of free coffee, plush bathrobes, and wonderfully smelling soap. The New York Times was at our door...

The Blakely has it all. Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff, good value and within walking distance of almost everything. We were surprised at how nice the hotel was since it's pricing was more reasonable than it's competitors. Based on other traveler’s reviews it seemed you went with high floor/slow elevator or low floor/quick lobby access. We went with high...

This is a great hotel with the best price near the New York City Center Theater. There are great restaurants, coffee shops on the street. The hotel is very nice, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I will stay there again and again.

Small, friendly hotel with spacious rooms, conveniently located for theatre, shopping, and museums. Walk to Central Park. Elevator is a bit cramped and lower rooms can be a bit noisy. But overall good value and comfortable accommodation for a few days in NYC.

I have stayed at numerous hotels in NYC but this hotel was the most accommodating hotel I have ever stayed. The personal were outstanding, friendly, and very personable. The room was fabulous and the location of this hotel was most desirable. When I return to NYC, I will reserve a room at this hotel. Your wants and needs are all...

We stayed here for a recent trip to NY. I had stayed in the same place years ago when the hotel had different owners but the rooms have been remodeled and are lovely and spacious for a NYC hotel room. The lobby is small but the staff is attentive and friendly. We had no problems with our room - it...

We've staid at this Hotel many times. We keep coming back because of the terrific staff, the hotel is a boutique hotel, quiet, nice simple daily breakfast. It's my experience that there are many europeans that stay there we have been. We have been there on summer spring fall and that the service is consistent. They know us when we...

Initially checked into a studio room having booked a junior suite but moved without a fuss. We were on the 12th floor overlooking 55th St so relatively quiet though there is constant traffic noise which might disturb some and a noisy brasserie on the ground floor in the evening. Rooms very comfortable and clean - continental breakfast is included though...

We stay at The Blakely yearly for business trips in New York City. Location-only 4 blocks from Central Park and very close to St. Patrick's Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. Rooms-Very spacious for NYC. We always get the King Suite that has an extra little sitting room and sofa (that can also be used as a bed). Bathrooms- Well decorated with...

We couldn't have asked for more from a hotel. Great location, clean and comfortable room, and best of all an attentive staff. They cheerfully advised us as to where to catch the bus to the Met and which subway station we needed to get to the 9/11 Memorial. They got us discount tickets to a Broadway show and made dinner...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
