Small boutique hotel. Great location, clean, comfortable room, no hustle and bustle, fair price. Will definitely stay there again! Mid-town location, walking distance to theatre district and restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed at the Blakely recently for 9 nights to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We had e-mailed the hotel prior to leaving the UK in relation to transport from JFK to the hotel. The concierge promptly replied with the best mode of transport and prices. We opted for the private car and were met by the driver at the gate...

We stayed at the Blakely for 8 nights at the end of April/beginning of May. I wasn't certain that this hotel was the best choice for us, but I was proved wrong. The downstairs lobby, though small, was charming, and we loved the library motif throughout the hotel. We even had shelves of hardback books in our room. We were...

This was our second trip to the Blakely, having stayed there 12 months ago on the recommendation of New zealand friends. It did not disappoint. Pros-small hotel, attractive library like entrance, most helpful staff ( just ask them if they don't come forward), large rooms, kitchenette attached, and a living room area ( small and dark but still extra space...

This is now the 6th hotel in New York we have stayed in and rate it as the best. It is small - there was only 8 rooms on our floor - and may not have all the facilities of large hotels but what it offers is first class. We had a 1 bedroom suite - the bedroom was large...

This hotel is a gem. Perfect location, spacious rooms, exceptionally comfortable beds and very helpful staff. Their attention to detail was second to none. We travelled to 3 other hotels in different states and were disappointed given how high the standard had been set by the Blakely.Highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is pristine. It is clean and very, very classy. The location cannot be beat. Blocks from Central Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, the subway is at the corner, and numerous restaurants are all over the place. The staff is super helpful and proactive about making sure you have the best possible stay and that you get everything out...

We recently spent a week in Manhattan to explore the city. Our seven year old chose NYC as her preferred destination and wanted to see all of the sites. I read many reviews online and wanted a hotel that offered a little more space for our family of three plus my mother. One standard hotel room would not be enough...

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.
