“Go-to hotel in NYC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

I visit New York several times a year and always stay at the Hotel Belleclaire at Broadway and 7th on the Upper West Side - been doing so for several years. It's far enough from the bustle to provide a decent (quiet) night's sleep but is within a short walking distance of Central Park and the subway (1 train, which goes straight down Broadway for easy connections). Around the corner from are fantastic cafes, like Cafe Lalo (amazing brunch) and Good Enough to Eat. The hotel has recently renovated, upgrading some of its features. My first ever stay, the hotel upgraded my friend and me to a two bedroom suite, which was a welcome surprise. I am torn recommending the hotel because I'd like for it to remain a hidden gem, but such a high quality and affordable option in NYC is hard to come by and definitely worth a share.

Great location in the heart of the Upper West Side, with just a short walk to the Natural History Museum, subway stop, Alice's Tea Shop, and lots of cute resturants and bars in the area. We had the broadway king room on the corner and it was a LARGE room with a small bathroom. I was suprised how big the room was. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My only complaint was that there was construction going on across the street and it started EARLY in the morning so we didn't sleep much..maybe that's just what it's like in NYC..

Room Tip: Ask for the Broadway king corner room

Dear Razorbackgirl7,

We are delighted with your comments regarding our Broadway King accommodations, the cleanliness, our qualified staff and their excellent services.

It is situated in a friendly neighborhood on the Upper West Side, were there are lots of bars, shops and restaurants, which is very appreciated by our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon at Belleclaire! It will be our pleasure to have another opportunity to show you the gracious hospitality and superb service.

This was my second time staying and I was just as pleased! We stayed in the queen this time and for NYC it was very spacious and clean. The bellboys greeted us and parked our car again for us on the street. No hassle with that or checking in. Juan at the front desk was very friendly. The new renovations are lovely and I want the new couch you have! Linens were fresh, bed was comfy and bathroom was clean. I see other people have mentioned that the rooms are small.... The room size is not huge but it's the right price for rooms like this in NYC. They are great! Besides...why are you in your room if your vacationing in NYC! The hotel is wonderful and I recommend it again!

I came to the Hotel Belleclaire with my college friends last week and we loved our stay. Although the rooms were a bit small, the location and the service at the hotel was amazing. When I called to the front desk, Brittany was incredibly sweet and helpful and for a small fee upgraded us to a much larger room. Brittany went out of her way to make our stay memorable and relaxing. The lobby is adorable and the restaurants near the hotel were great! Next time I come to NYC, I am definitely returning to the Hotel Belleclaire.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by the hotel staff and checked in without a hitch. The lobby is a nice communal area to sit & wait for your traveling companions or read the paper.

The rooms are on the small side but just what you need as a traveller - most of your time will be spent out seeing NYC!
The beds are comfortable & linen clean.
Shower had good pressure though the water could have been hotter.
We were facing Broadway so it was quite noisy & the windows don't shield a lot if the traffic. It didn't bother us too much but if you're a light sleeper it might affect you.

Rooms were cleaned daily and were to satisfaction.
Each room has a safe & hairdrier. TV is great; we didn't use any pay per view.

There is a media room with Macs and printers so that you can log in & print boarding passes etc.
there is also a gym if you're feeling energetic!

There are no restaurant facilities in this hotel. There is a coffee bar to buy breakfast items. When we booked the room we were promised complimentary coffee etc so when we saw this disappear after our first day we mentioned it to staff. They were very helpful & gave us kettles & cups which satisfied us. (There are no tea-making facilities in the rooms)

Nearby there are lots of places to eat & breakfast so id recommend that for breakfast.
The Subway is really close on W79 street. The 1, 2 or 3 lines will take you to Penn and Times Square or farther downtown.

Overall I was happy at the hotel. Yes the rooms were on the small side but were clean and comfortable. Staff were courteous & always happy to try & help.

Feel free to message me with any questions.
