We were originally booked to stay at the Wellington hotel at 7th Ave and 55th. I have stayed there before, and it is just okay. Our trip was my husbands first time to the city, and I was excited about staying somewhere familiar and so close to everything. We got to the Wellington to check in, and they informed us they had overbooked, and had no room for us! I was about to flip out, until they informed us they had moved us just down the block to the boutique hotel, the Blakely. The doorman took us down there, and got us settled. WHAT A GREAT MISTAKE this was. The Blakely is a beautiful, classic, comfortable place to stay. Our room was a king bed room, with a sitting area and a desk, and a mini bar with granite counters, a sink, a fridge, a Keurig coffee machine, a big bathroom with marble and mirrors, it was amazing. I will definitely be back. The hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful even though we were latecomers and originally booked somewhere else. There is complimentary continental breakfast in their hotel restaurant, Abboccatto, and free WiFi which are both very rare in NYC since everyone likes to charge for everything. The furnishings were oak and velvet, and the linens were high thread count, very crisp and clean, and the housekeeping is very good at their job. I couldn't be happier. They stored our luggage for us when we checked out to go see the sites for a while, and called a personal car for us to take us to the airport later on (i highly recommend doing this, so you dont have to stress about getting a cab). Customer service is great. You must stay here.
