I took my wife to New York for her 40th, I'd been recommended the Bentley Hotel by dialaflight rep Marco when i asked for a hotel not amongst the hustle and bustle as my wife is a light sleeper! I had been studying these reviews after booking the hotel, prior to staying, and knowing all these reviews are based on each persons stay, I was quite anxious about the hotel as everyone seemed to be have some sort of bad experience however, I can honestly say we had a fantastic 4 night stay here, having emailed prior to arriving asking for a room with a view and on a high level, due to suggestions on here and it being my wife's 40th and surprisingly we were upgraded to a superior king room - big thank you Mr Gallo!
I would definitely recommend upgrading, the view was fab, room spacious, bed SO comfortable, mini bar/fridge (not used but looked lovely), cleaned/bed made every day, lovely bathroom, air con - switch on/off as u like, iron & umbrella in room came in very handy - only flaw would be the thin walls(!).
The subway is a good 10-15 minute walk away but the street is not as steep as certain people have made it to be.
Hotel staff were friendly, called us taxis several times in the rain, reception staff always greeting and cleaner, well never saw her but rooms were always clean.
We ate breakfast and late snack at Ritz Diner, 2 blocks away, was really nice - plenty of tea and coffee top ups! Pizza takeaway just opposite also wine/beer shop too. We didn't eat at Bentley as restaurant was busy on our arrival but it looked lovely.
Taxis are not that expensive, we regularly used them to and from certain locations as we had attractions booked at certain times, although we used the subway and hop on and off buses aswell.
Taxis from Bentley to Newark Airport is 80 dollars plus a 10 dollar toll charge whereas we caught taxi to Penn Station (would of walked to subway and got to Penn station but our suitcases were very heavy!) which was 15 dollars and then train tickets to Newark Station were 25 dollars for both of our tickets, however these trains run every 45-60 minutes so leave in plenty of time.
Great Stay :)
