Of a very good standard and superbly located for exploring all the sights of New York. For what you compared to what you can pay in New York exceptionally cost effective small hotel. Good sized rooms with the usual amenities and relatively quiet, important in a big city. Would certainly return.

Like most Manhattan boutique hotels, the Blakely gets a lot of the details right: not only good lighting for the bed, but a comfortable reading chair and ottoman with its own 3-level reading lamp. Mirrors galore. A jetted bath-tub. Well-designed and equipped mini-kitchen area with Keurig coffee-machine. Comfortable King bed with feather pillows. Well-trained, courteous and helpful staff. The room...

Our third stay here reminded us why we love this place so much. Absolutely perfect location -- midtown, hundreds of restaurants, walk to Central Park, walk down Broadway to theaters. So different from big chain hotels, it's like a small European boutique hotel. Large bathrooms with marble showers, strong water pressure, and all the amenities. Really good service, employees are...

The Blakely had some very good qualities, but one issue truly annoyed me and with this I will start as it affected our stay and over all few of the hotel. The breakfast is provided by the Italian restaurant attached to the hotel, Abboccato.The staff were appalling in their service and more so by their down right rudeness. Matters are...

The hotel was recommended by Trailfinders when we booked our holiday with them and wanted to spend extra days in NY. What a find, staff very helpful and friendly I know there have been comments about the waiting staff in the restaurant but they weren't that bad and let's be honest they rely on the tips. It was a complementary...

Nice summer get-a-way for us, cute boutique hotel just above the "noise" of mid-town Clean rooms, friendly people. NYC prices of course, but what are you gonna do? Great breakfast in the restaurant, very accomodating (appetizers and cocktails at the bar one night were too die for too!)

Great boutique hotel in a great location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Have stayed here before and we will again. I travel with a mobility scooter and they were most accommodating. The restaurant is excellent-even had dinner there one night.

We just returned from a trip to NYC. We had tickets to "The Book of Mormon", and wanted a hotel that was nearby, had some individuality, great rooms and great service. We got that in the Blakely New York hotel. The room was huge, the bath was clean and well lit. The staff was professional, courteous, and friendly, without being...

Just returned from five nights at the Blakely and we could not have been happier. The location is very convenient and our room was very nice. Loved having the little kitchenette in the room and loved having real glasses to make drinks for cocktail hour. The breakfast was perfect to get us going for the day. Staff was very professional...

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.
