I absolutely adored the comforts afforded by The Blakely. A vintage lobby that's just-so-slightly worn in, old elevators and hallways with wood floors, hallways lined with velvet fabrics; visually, this hotel offers a taste of a life in a pre-war New York apartment building. It was, by far, the cleanest and most meticulously maintained NY hotel room I've stayed in....

I was in NY this January, and chose the hotel for the location, and for having a mini kitchen, it would be very useful on cold days. The hotel is cozy, unlike big chain hotels, so impersonal. The room was spacious, the bed wonderful, linens, amenities: all of the highest quality. Not all NY hotels offer breakfast included in the...

We stayed at this fab hotel at the beginning of May and reception kindly upgraded us to a larger room on the 9th floor on arrival given it was a special trip which was very much appreciated. Gorgeous classic style rooms-well maintained and spotlessly clean. Continental breakfast very good and gave us a good start to the day before hitting...

We had a 'girls trip' staying at the Blakely. We couldn't have ask for better location…just a few blocks from Central Park, the theater district, close to shopping, nail salon, pizza, deli's etc. The employees at the hotel were great and always helpful. Room service was very prompt. The free breakfast each morning was a nice continental. The rooms were...

Having stayed at a very average hotel off 5th Avenue near the Public Library in September 2011, I decided to manage my expectations of The Blakely to prevent disappointment overshadowing my 4 day stay. All my anxiety evaporated from the moment I walked into the reception area. The service was great from start to finish. Staff were courteous and helpful;...

The Blakely is a really nice hotel. Great location. Comfortable beds. However, I will not be back because I depend on internet access in my room when I travel, and that was not available in our room. The hotel advertises free wifi, and once in a while we could get on the internet and view our homepage, but we could...

Staying (unfortunately) for only one night, we arrived before official check-in. We were, however, greeted warmly and told a room was available and we were upgraded at no charge to a lovely suite! It is a narrow hotel, with c 25 floors but only 5 or 6 rooms per floor so while it feels a little 'tight' on space in...

We booked our anniversary stay for 3 nights using SniqueAway.com. The price was right and we thought the location would be good. Boy was that understated!

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.
