Second time staying at the Blakely. Other than the rugs in the lobby have seen better days, our stay was as good as the first and we will stay there again. Other reviews are accurate with large clean rooms, friendly and able staff and a central location to central park, times square, etc.

The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were changed every day, lovely! the armchair was the most comfortable I have found in any hotel and had a footstool, very nice. Each room has a kitchenette, with microwave and fridge and coffee...

As others have said, great location but also great staff, particularly the concierge staff who can't enough for you. We had a 'no ask' upgrade to a suite and this is now our hotel of choice in New York, whether we get upgraded or not !

We have stayed with my husband in a hotel for 5 nights in August. We have chosen the hotel for the location and we were not mistaken. The location is perfect to explore the city: close to Central Park, Broadway, Times Square, 5th Avenue. Still being just few steps away from the active city life the hotel is in a...

My wife and I just returned from staying at The Blakely. The hotel staff was wonderful - friendly, professional and very helpful with all our questions. I had business - the wife had some free time. So, it was a great location for both. Just blocks from the park, shopping and the theater district. Our room was clean and spacious....

The Blakely was really just perfect. When we arrived we were surprised to find we had been upgraded from a king to a king suite which had a great layout. The sitting area with tv and a second closet, the coffeemaker area and the bathroom were separated from the bedroom by a door. The early riser could completely shower, dress,...

I have stayed at the Blakely twice now, both times in one bedroom suites. Each time there were three people staying in the rooms. The space was well done and the beds comfortable with a Daybed in the living room. This hotel is well located and has a continental breakfast included.It is not a large hotel and the staff is...

Got a great deal for the Blakely for a rwo night stay. The staff was exceptional. The rooms were fine -- clean and spacious and quiet. Breakfast and free wi-fi were much appreciated.

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.
