This hotel, their staff, from the housekeeping service, to the restaurant staff, to the bell service, to the front desk, were helpful to anyone they spoke to. I sat in the lobby and watched them with others. It's was heartening. Our room was huge by NY standards, the bed, comfortable. I hope to stay there again someday. The Continental breakfast...

We spent 5 days at this hotel at the end of August. The check-in staff were ok and the room was of average size with a comfortable bed. Overall the hotel is more traditional in its furnishings but clean and tidy. We used the fitness centre once and although small was sufficient. The concierge were all very helpful and friendly...

The location of this hotel is what appealed to us. Conveniently located and close to Central Park, theatre district, Times Square.... everything within walking distance. Complimentary contentintal breakfasts were ample. Hotel staff very attentive and eager to please. Beds super comfortable and higher floors quite quiet for NYC. We walked a lot so can't speak to the fitness area. If...

The Blakeley Hotel is located a short distance from Times Square and Central Park. Making it, one of the best located hotels in the city. Located next door is Hertz and across the road is The New York City Centre Theater. The breakfast in the morning is popular and has a small but excellent selection of food. The juice is...

We have just returned from a 5 night stay in the Blakely, which we found to be a great, quiet hotel near enough to the attractions but far enough away to avoid the crowds and the noise. The greeting from the reception staff was so-so on arrival but throughout our stay, every one of the concierge staff was brilliant -...

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.

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.

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.
