This was a wonderful hotel to stay at and the staff was very friendly. They include a continental breakfast with the room fee that starts at 7:30AM. The room was very large for NYC standards and we felt very safe, it was very clean and we would stay there again.

My husband and I recently stayed at Le Parker Meridian and just felt the hotel way too large, noisy and the elevators to our tower room too slow. We just happened to be out walking and passed The Blakely and decided to go in and take a look...the front desk staff were extremely nice and helpful when I asked if...

My husband and I spent six nights at The Blakely in June 2013. We'd travelled from Brisbane, Australia for a week of sightseeing, dining, shopping and absorbing New York City. We found The Blakely to be ideally situated, our suite spacious and quiet, the breakfast exactly what was needed and the staff efficient and friendly. Big thanks to concierge Alex...

My boyfriend and I decided to take a city break to New York back in February over Valentine's Day. We chose The Blakely because the location seemed ideal and very reasonably priced.

Full disclaimer, we got a deal from a travel site for this stay which made it a steal as far as value is concerned. That said, this hotel was a great find. It is small, as in not many rooms, but the rooms themselves are large by New York City standards. The location is actually quiet despite being equidistant from...

Just got back from our first trip to NYC. LOVED the location of this hotel - a couple blocks south of Central Park and walking distance to Times Square and most other attractions.

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.
