5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2005

We go to NYC every Thanksgiving and have stayed for the last few years at the Doubletree Times Square. This year the Doubletree was booked, so we decided totake a chance on The Blakely, as we wanted a suite hotel for our family of four. The descriptions on the Blakely's internet site sounded nice, but we knew that it might not live up those descriptions.
We found the suite to beautifully appointed with hardwood floors and oriental rugs. It was also very roomy, with a sitting area and work desk in the bedroom in addition to the living room. The entire hotel has free wireless high speed internet access. My only small complaint is that there was more street noise filtering into the room than at the Doubletree.
We had a lovely stay and next Thanksgiving, we will look to the Blakely first.
