TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

Our 3-night stay was wonderful and everything we could have hoped for. The property is smaller, "boutique-style", and cozy. It looked to be about 15 stories with around 8 rooms per floor. The location was perfect for us--easy walking distance to Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Central Park, several subway stations, and 5th Avenue shops...but, far enough away from the crowds and craziness of it all. The room was clean, well-appointed, and larger than we expected! It was nice to have not only the large bedroom, but a small "living area" with a couch that was easily large enough for our 10-year old daughter to sleep on, and feel like she had her own space to watch television and relax after our long days of touring the city! There was quite a bit of street noise and construction near our room, (even on the 12th floor) although it didn't bother us too much--as we always sleep with the television or white-noise machine even at home! All staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. My husband wishes he would have got the name of the concierge that helped us out during our stay...he was so very helpful with any questions and recommendations. We loved that we could take advantage of making a reservation at the Black Tap restaurant to enjoy some burgers, shakes, and beers without waiting in the long line that accumulates every day outside! The "continental" breakfast provided was more than adequate for our family in the mornings (but we aren't much for a big breakfast). It was very convenient and a nice touch to offer it though. The only issues that I would point out for other travelers would be that the elevators are extremely small and although we didn't find them as slow as others have stated...if you are traveling with a larger family, or with large strollers, etc. The size of the elevator could be a deal-breaker for you. Also, if you are traveling with anyone with mobility issues or a wheelchair, the entrance to the front desk has a few small stairs, and didn't appear to have any other accessibility? I would contact the Blakely regarding arrangements if the stairs would be an issue. Overall, I would recommend the Blakely and would stay there again in a heart beat.

On our recent trip to NYC we stayed here for two nights. We were surprised to see the size of our room in comparison with other hotels we have stayed at in the same area. Also like the décor which gave you the feeling you were staying in an inn rather than a sterile hotel room. The hotel is very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. Will definitely stay here again.

Arrived at The Blakely prior to the 3pm check-in. Our room we requested was not ready , the young lady at the desk promptly radioed housekeeping and within 30 -40 min our room was prepared. The young lady also got us into the Black Tap restaurant. Our server was Dee and she as well as the food, were excellent!!( You get priority seating with a 2 hour notice as hotel guests ) My daughter went to the room while I went down to a small supermarket (Klein's) on the corner of 6th and 55th. Yes , the lobby and elevator are small and the hallway off the elevator is a bit dated , but the rooms are beautiful! Very large bathroom with a big tub with wonderful water pressure. Lots of mirrors with a marbled vanity. The toilet flushes on the side and it takes a bit of time but worked fine . The kitchenette was a blessing. The young lady at the front desk had housekeeping remove the mini bar items from the fridge which left us tons of room for water , pop etc. We had a family room, so we had 2 double beds. The linens were crisp and the beds were very comfortable. Pillows were a bit small ,but I just doubled them up. The location could not be beat !! Within 3-5 min to 2 subway stops. Times Square, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Centre, All Broadway shows , 5th ave and Central Park are within a 15-20 min walking. Tons of cabs or uber readily available . Took GoLink air shuttle to/from LGA. for around 32USD . We purchased a New York Explorer Pass which I would recommend if you plan on doing any sightseeing. Our favourite was "The Ride" it's like a combination of a bus tour/comedy show/with live entertainment. We also did Late Night with Seth Myers, Madame Tussaud's, Empire State and saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Broadway. In conclusion, I wouldn't hesitate to return to The Blakely Hotel. I actually will plan on returning next summer as well.

We stayed at the Blakely for 4 nights. Our room was spacious and very clean. The hotel location is great: close to many attractions and 2 main subway lines. The breakfast was OK: lots of choices of danishes, croissants and various pastries, but knives were hard to find so we used spoons or forks to butter our bagels. Not the greatest breakfast we've had but certainly not the worst. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I liked this hotel a lot. The room was large it had a living room area with a kitchenette. The staff was friendly and very helpful. My room was clean and I even got a news paper each morning. I did not visit the breakfast bar due to time constraints so I cannot comment. The only 2 things not so great was the tiny elevator and the street noise. The elevator was very small and could hardly fit 4 people. I like personal space so that was a bit uncomfortable for me but I was fine with it. The street noise could not be helped I understand but each morning I heard trash truck after trash truck roll through. I would recommend this hotel because the comforts far out weigh the not so comfortable.
