“Nice little spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

My second time staying at the Bentley, nice place in a great neighborhood. Subway station a few blocks away and it's within our walking distance to Central Park, 5th Avenue & Times Square. Nice clean room, helpful staff, great views of the 59th street bridge & East River. Only thing I'd change would be the wifi situation, pretty pricey, but overall the hotel is great.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Stayed Bentley 3 nights in March. The location is OK, next to FDR entrance but a bit far from subway station. The room is quite small and make sure to book a room on high floors since the room window on lower floors could face the wall of another building a few feet away. Since it's next to FDR drive, you might hear lots of noises on lower floors. Lobby is very small and the bar only serve quick bites but there're plenty decent restaurants in neighborhood. The staff were nice and friendly. A decent hotel for modest budget.

Room Tip: book a room on high floor with nice view.

This hotel is in a safe area in the upper east side. The hotel is very clean and rooms are spacious for NYC with an updated design. The rooms have a great view of the east river and queensboro bridge. Close to dining. Rooftop/ penthouse restaurant in hotel with nice views as well. Unsure of subway location took mostly cabs. Only negatives for room were the shower design made it so the floors got soaked every time you showered. Also all the light sockets/ plugs were loose and and plugs fell out. Staff nice, helpful and welcoming. I would return on my next visit.

Very nice rooms, with comfortable beds and workspaces. Not too many shops or restaurants in the surrounding area, and quite far to the nearest subway. Beautiful view from the rooms, especially higher up. Considerable noise from the traffic outside and from surrounding rooms. Wifi ridiculously overpriced.

Room Tip: Higher is better...

My husband and I travel to NYC at least every 6 weeks, and always stay at the Bentley-which we consider to be our Manhattan home. The service has always been welcoming, warm and attentive...and the view is outstanding. We would recommend The Bentley to everyone and anyone visiting New York.

Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff and lovely room with a wonderful view of the Queensboro Bridge. We recommend to use the hotels services when you are going to Woodbury Common if you are a group of four. I would definitely go back and stay at the Bentley Hotel when I am going back to New York.

It's a very pleasent hotel. The Bentley is located on the Upper East Side, nice and safe neighborhood, but a little too far from the metro. The staff were always very helpful. We would like especially to thank Su, who made all the difference during our stay.
