We had some issues with the AC but they were very attentive and accommodating and it was taken care of ASAP. It is an old hotel, with charm, so these things can happen. We normally stay at the Marriott Marque in Time Square, but I wanted a hotel that if I forgot something in the room, it didnt take me...

Great location and certainly good value. Friendly staff and good service. We received an upgrade to a suite without asking. Nice clean rooms and good amenities. wifi throughout the hotel was quite weak. I used the laptop in the lobby to print boarding passed and it was very slow and in the end did nit print, butthe concierge made arrangements...

My wife and I stayed in The Blakely for a long weekend in August 2013, the hotel booking was part of a business class travel offer with a UK holiday company. The hotel is small, but functional, but not '4 star' as advertised, I would say more like a 3 star hotel. Our room was of a reasonable size as...

I loved this location and after several trips to NYC I would definitely go back here. The rooms may be small, however, I find that so little time is spent in the hotel it isn't an issue. It was very clean, very cultured and the staff had a wonderful approach.

Me and my mom went to New York for spring break. This hotel was pretty small. The rooms were small but clean. The breakfast was okay. They didn't have a big selection. But it was very clean. I felt like everything was clean and I'm vey picky about cleanness. The staff were very nice.

We had a short leisure stay in NYC. We wanted to be located convenient to Times Square and Central Park. The Blakely was a reasonably priced option with decent reviews. The accomodations were pretty spacious for Manhattan, included a continental breakfast (which is unusual), and the ambience was perfect for my wife and me. Making our impression even more favorable,...

We spent three nights here on our recent trip East and loved the location. Easy walk to theaters, Time Square, Central Park, etc. The only hiccups were the day they forgot to provide maid service and while it was rectified quickly at 6:30pm when we returned from a long day out and called their attention to it, no apology or...

We stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is in a great location and the 8th floor suite we had was really good. Big, well equipped and very clean. The lobby staff were very friendly and very helpful. The only disappointment was the continental breakfast. Very basic more reminiscent of a budget hotel; choice of jelly was more often than...

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.
