From the street The Blakely looks old and dark, but once inside you find a quaint little hotel with very friendly staff. My room is a great size and everything is very clean and tidy. There's free wifi as well. I am very happy with the location it's a short work to 5th avenue and Times Square and all the... More

We won a trip to New York CIty for the weekend which included a private jet and hotel accomodations in New York. The Blakely as our hotel for two nights. The location of this hotel was fantastic, central to everything in Midtown, i.e. central park, radio city, times square, AVenue of the Americas. The suite we had was beautifully decorated,... More

We stayed at the Blakely over the Labour Day weekend and had a wonderful time. From the front desk staff and housekeepers to the concierges, this hotel has a very friendly, knowledgeable and polite staff. The hotel location is conveniently close to Central Park, the theatre district and within walking distance to many attractions and the subway. Our room was... More

Location was great (close to Times Square and Central Park), staff was super friendly (special thanks to the front desk who found my missing package and to Jose and Pedro!). There's a subway station right around the corner, or you can just walk around the area, or even to 5th ave. Would most-def stay here again! Breakfast could have been... More

The Staff of the Blakely NY is excellent. They are always polite, kindly and helpful, really excellent!! The location of the hotel is amazing: near to theater's district, without the noise; three blocks from Central Park; half-block from MTA 57st-&av station; and a walking distance to AMNH, MET and MOMA. I really recommend the Blakely!

The hotel was in a location making it easy to reach many parts of the city. The rooms are large, but have not had many updates. Our room had a musty smell and the air conditioning did not work well. Also, the bed pillows are too soft. Your head sinks into them. They do have a bellman on duty all... More

Friendly and helpful staff plus clean rooms and a nice continental breakfast make The Blakely a great option for those seeking a reasonable midtown hotel. The location is perfect, but do ask for a room on an upper floor. We were first offered a room on the 2nd floor, but decided to wait for another room on the 7th floor... More

The hotel is located on 55th between 6th Avenue 7th Avenue. So that it is located somewhere in the middle. Near the hotel there are several tube stations which allow to reach all parts of the city. Staff are welcoming and give excellent service. Rooms clean and tidy. Ask for a room on a high floor room facing the road... More

Hotel is small, nice and clean. Rooms are very nice, perfectly equipped, only air condition is loud. Complementary Breakfast was in price for room but for European people is very simple and you have to wait in line some time.

My family and I began our trip down the east coast here. We had 4 nights in the blackly, in a suite. The room itself was huge, two big queen beds, a sitting area with a sofa which was easily big enough to be a single bed, and a huge bathroom as well as a mini kitchen area which coffee... More
