We absolutely loved our stay at The Blakely. I could not believe how huge the rooms are. We had two beds in the bedroom (which alone is bigger than most NY hotel rooms). Then there was the sitting room with a daybed, and plenty of room for a rollaway as well. Also great for sitting around to talk or play game. Then there was a kitchenette, and a beautiful, huge, clean, stunning bathroom. 550 square feet of heaven.
The floors were wood, which I love in a hotel. The bed was very, very comfortable, the decor was so charming and classic. Really beautiful. The room was super clean as well.
For a hotel with this great location in the city that never sleeps, noise is always a concern, but request a room high up and also at the back of the building if you are worried about it.
Turn either right or left out of the hotel to get to many restaurants, bakeries, cafes (Carnegie Deli is literally a one-minute walk away). We never ate at the on-site restaurant--too many other options in NY to get stuck there. Their free breakfast was toast, bagels and english muffins, so we didn't even try it.
There have been some reviews commenting on the elevator situation, and it is true, sometimes they were slow. But only when you were trying to use them between 8-10
am. There are no service elevators, so the staff uses the guest elevators to get their housekeeping stuff up and down, and they use a key that bypasses all other floors. 95% of the time, it was not a problem. But staying here is absolutely worth the hassle of the elevators.
