I have stayed in a number of 4 & 5-star hotels across the US and Canada. While I like them I have a soft spot for boutique hotels that have charm over polish. The Belvedere is one of those boutique hotels that reminds me why I like them. The 1920's building shows that it has been around for awhile, but has had love applied to it. The staff is excellent! We were greeted with professionalism and warmth. Each staff member met us with a smile and a yes Sir/No Sir. Our room was 1719, top floor, King Executive. Like others have said it has marble hall and marble bathroom. Room has a Ref., microwave, coffee maker and sink which is nice to store soda's and misc snacks. The room was a good size for NYC standards. The bathroom was on the smaller size, but the mirrored walls give it a bigger feel. Does it have a lot of bathroom storage space? No, however, there is a stand-up shelf in the hallway that is perfect for all your bathroom items. Each room has a safe to store you valuable items. The AC was effective and easy to control. Many say it doesn't keep the room cool if you close the curtains. Our room had black out shades that meant we did not have to close the full curtain. For me, letting the sunshine in the window as a wake-up is so much better then any alarm clock. ONLY small issue was with the TV. We did have to turn it on by the button on the side. We had a service man up, but decided to keep the tv that was in the room. He offered many times to replace it. If the TV is that big of an issue in NYC then you are not doing the city right. Maid service was effective and the room was cleaned each and every day with plenty of towels, etc. The bed was WONDERFUL!! My wife had not slept that well in a long time. Tip is to Tip! Tips are the lifeblood of the service industry in NY so tip first and often and you will see the best service available. If you buy a metro pass use that as a final tip for the staff. It is an excellent final tip and always appreciated. We did not eat at the hotel with Amy's bread being just a few blocks down the street. You get use to the fire trucks going out on call on 8th Ave. It is just part of the charm of NY life. 48th is a great headquarters to see any part of the city with taxis available and 3 subway stations just a short walk away. Riding the Q will take you from Queens to Coney Island and land you right back at Time's Square with no issue. The Belvedere will see us again and at under $300.00/night it is a great deal for the quality.
