Recommend to visit The Surrey roof top for lunch , so had our concierge at the friendly Blakely Hotel call up to be told we would be welcomed ! What a different story when we arrived, no lunch the roof top does not open for lunch so we go to a small over crowded "cafe" for a $300 lunch ! After which we want to retire to the roof top for a drink - then the fun begins apparently even though we have rung ahead we can't use the roof top , no record can be found of our hotel talking to them etc - well he is the rub we are guests we have just spent $300 on a mediocre lunch in their restaurant - it's an overcrowded cafe . The manager spoke to us as if we were dirt , so I urge you not to spend a dollar in this overrated arrogant, over priced hole . I have retired to the elegance and calm joy of The Pennisula to enjoy a " welcome" and welcomed drink On their spectacular rooftop!

Nice and quiet hotel on the UES. Great roof deck - very comfortable rooms. The work out facility is tiny and could use some extra space. The restaurant is delicious but quite expensive - would recommend breakfast elsewhere if on your own dime.

The hotel has gone terribly down hill this past year with poor service, reduced menu with overpriced sandwiches (literally. There is nothing else on the menu) dusty rooms and run down hallways. This hotel is mediocre at best.

I would give the hotel itself an A. Lobby is nice, good sized rooms, wonderful rooftop bar. Service, however, gets a D. Not an F because I think the staff was trying. They were just trying and failing. Examples: Check in is at 3:00. We arrived at 2:00 and were told the room would be ready at 3:00. At 3:15 they apologized and said it would be another 30 minutes. They had upgraded us to a suite (sounds great!) and there were not other suites available. At 4:00 they brought us to our suite. The view looked directly onto an air conditioning unit. You couldn't see anything else besides that. So not only were we delayed an hour but got a room with a HORRIBLE view. If you get "upgraded" to room 501 you should pass. We asked to be moved to a regular room with a better view which they accommodated. However, by this time it was 4:30 and it totally screwed up our schedule and timing for the evening. There were two other parties in the lobby also waiting on rooms at 4:00. The staff seemed unable to figure out why it was taking so long to get people into their room. The rest of the customer services failures were a bunch of small things. However, the small things add up. Good, expensive hotels SHOULD pride themselves on getting service right. The Surrey got it wrong at every turn. Minor examples: I went to the bar around 11:45 PM to get a cup of ice (no ice maker to be seen in hotel). I was told the bar was closed. I said I just wanted a cup of ice and the bartender said they had no ice. His attitude was as if I had asked him to seat me and serve me a 5 course dinner just as the restaurant was closing. I asked if he seriously had no ice. He looked and lo and behold, they did have ice! He just didn't want to serve it to me. I asked if they had ginger ale and he said yes, but it was hot and flat so I should not get it. I didn't. Next example - we were told we'd get the NY Times in the morning. We didn't. Next example - we ordered a glass of champagne at the rooftop bar and were brought a Moscow Mule instead. Next example - while waiting for our room, we wanted to go to the rooftop bar. I asked the concierge if there was a bathroom up there and was told there was. There is not. Next example - their electronic key system sucks. You have to put the key in and out of the key slot on the elevator several times to get it to recognize your key and allow you to your floor. At one point my key stopped working entirely and needed to get a new one. Next example - at 11:45 on Sunday morning I asked the concierge if I could get a cup of coffee from the restaurant in the hotel. She said they would not have coffee at that hour. It was 11:45 on a Sunday morning!!! Outside the horrible check in, all the other issues were not major, but when combined together it made for a horrible service experience. If you enjoy good service while staying at a hotel, avoid the Surrey.

We stayed late April for three nights and over the years have been here three or four times. We love this neighborhood and the deal was great (3 for 2 suite). We always ask for a quiet room and we were not disappointed; it even had a peak-a-boo view of the park, surrounding roof gardens and had great light. It was small, but that seems picky, since we've stayed here before in larger suites that faced Madison, along with accompanying noise. There are needling complaints about consistency here: housekeeping, room service, technology in the room, even the room a/c. There was filming during our stay, so the bar was off limits and the roof deck was not yet open for the season, and even though it's feels a bit cool to stay in a hotel that is being filmed, it was a bit challenging to entertain friends. There was also a baseball team staying in the hotel and their entourage was intense and loud. If you're into that, again, cool, but for us un-Nationals fans, it just meant loud, people holding court and slowing down elevators. The game changer came when we asked the concierge (two of the BEST we've ever encountered have been here forevah) for a last minute reservation for 6(!) at Cafe Boulud. The restaurant accommodated us, gave us a great table, excellent service and food, and we felt pampered and privileged. Management also made a few large accommodating gestures that pointed to personalized service, as well. I can never get a consistent read on this hotel. It's beautiful, in a great neighborhood, and has an unbelievable restaurant (room service french fries!). The clientele is varied; folks who look like they haven't washed in days and then, incredibly friendly and engaging folks. It could be one of the reasons the front desk staff sometimes stare at you with faraway eyes when asked a question - they never know what they're going to get, either. I would advise you to stay if you get a "great rate" and then never forget that once a negative experience occurs..It will help keep you focussed on staying positive about the money you've pocketed and can spend on a great meal at Cafe Boulud.
