“New York Elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

This boutique hotel is charming and sophisticated. Centrally located, the decor is old world charm and comfortable. The bar and restaurant are cozy and the food and drinks are great! Our room, a one bedroom suite, was spacious, comfortable and very well appointed. We had room to host 7 for cocktail hour. The room had a mini bar area with sink, glasses, a few dishes and a microwave. The bathroom (and I LOVE a fantastic bathroom) was exceptional. The glassed in shower and marble tile were beautiful. We had 2 televisions, an extremely comfortable bed and the room was quite with very litte street noise (we were not on the 55th side of the building). The concierge staff was extremely helpful and accommodating!! Very reasonably priced. As it is an older building, the elevators are small and slow but, hey, we were on vacation! We would definately recommend the property and plan to stay there again!

Room Tip: Our room, on the back side of the hotel, was quite. We did not hear much street noise or anything f...

I stayed there in May 2011 and came back with the kids in October 2011. It was a great experience. The room was big, nice w/ big beds, andthe bathroom is spacious. Staff was very good and ready to help. Locations is fabulous, probably the best thing about the hotel! You are a few blocks away from Central Park and all the best NYC corners!
Breakfast is honest, the room staff is a bit slow.
We would definetly come back!

1. Largest rooms in NYC
2. Great location in mid town
3. Affordable rates with the essentials included: breakfast & wi fi
4. Desk/concierge staff very helpful /Breakfast room staff is slow
5. Elevator is very slow

Room Tip: Ask for room on low floor because the elevator is very slow. Take the steps.

The Blakely probably isn't for everybody but it was great for us! Our son was singing at Carnegie Hall and we sought a nearby location through Luxury Link. (By the way, we got a good price, bottle of wine and were upgraded to a suite through this website) My husband who goes NYC often in the advertizing business said it is the nicest and biggest room he's stayed in in New York. The kitchenette was a plus. The bathroom, lounge bed for our college age daughter, the comfort of the beds, staff, wi-fi was all exceptional. The concierges directed us faultlessly to Italian, Chinese, and American grill restaurants that we couldn't find in guide books that were delicious, reasonable and perfect! Location, location Location is right! The little lobby, no skyline and slow, small elevators all should be noted for people who are seeking these things in the Big apple. We met many loyalists who consider this part of the
Blakely experience and we hope to join them as repeat customers in future visits.

Room Tip: They started us on the 13th floor which smelled like smoke. We asked for a change and were pleased.

Me and my boyfriend just come back from New York and i don't think we could have stayed in a better hotel, we originally booked the Wellington and when we got there we got upgraded to the blakely (their sister hotel) as it was Luke's 21st birthday. The staff were very friendly and did everything they could to help, it is a 5 minute walk to times square and central park ... We would defiantly book this hotel again. Great hotel great staff.
