From the web site you are left with the impression that the Blakely is an elegant hotel with the aura of an English country house. The reality is that the Blakely is simply an old hotel with rooms stuffed with old furniture. The restaurant? Well it’s closed for re-modeling but this fact is something that the Blakely prefers to tell... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location but is very old with outdated and worn decor and features. The restaurant lounge was closed for remodel on our visit without our prior knowledge and was very incovenient. The work out area/room has no ventilation and very subpar. We did have a double room that was generous in size but very dowdy.

We are anticipating the opening of our new restaurant "Black Tap Craft Burgers and Beer" to open late fall of this year. They will be serving a... More

The Blakely is so well located. West 55th street is a good location for the park & for getting anywhere in Manhattan. There is a subway on the corner & the street is remarkably quiet with less traffic than most roads in this area. The Blakely is a small 4 star hotel that is well appointed, clean & tidy. Our...

I stayed here a few years back, and loved this hotel. From the doorman on wards, this place offers the best. Our family room offered 2 double beds, a TV / sofa area, complete kitchenette (so not reliant on the hotel breakfast) and bathroom. A wonderful stay!

I stayed at The Blakely for three nights in March 2016. I would absolutely stay there again! The person I checked in with was lovely.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
