Reviewed December 7, 2013

Just come back from or first trip to New York. We stayed at the Belvedere Hotel which we cannot praise enough. We had two rooms, a double and twin. Rooms were a great size, enough room for luggage and all of those souvenirs, and very clean. Beds were so comfortable that we always git a good night's sleep. Bathroom was clean and the amount of amenities in the rooms was great. View from the room was wonderful. There was a lot of choice for breakfast - full american and continental. Food was of a good standard and piping hot. Hotel is also in a very good location - not even a 10 minute walk to Times Square. Easy walking distance to the theatres and several tourist attractions (we were able to walk from the hotel to the Empire State Building, Macy's, Radio City, Madison Square Gardens and the Rockafella Centre). The hotel is also very near several restaurants such as Planet Hollywood, TGI Fridays and the Hard Rock Cafe (which is very good!) Overall, this hotel added to a perfect holiday and we would definitely book to stay here again.

Room Tip: Twin rooms are much bigger than a double room!

I stayed at the Belvedere over Thanksgiving weekend. The convenience for Broadway shows, Times Square and seeing the Rockettes was exactly what we were looking for. I stayed with my two grown daughters. The room was big enough for us and nicely appointed. We weren't looking to be in room other than to freshen up and sleep, which is what we did. They held our luggage for us before our room was ready and again on our checkout day, they held our luggage so that we could go out and enjoy our day before heading home. We were on the 14th floor and had a lovely view of the tall buildings. The previous reviews I read stated that the elevators were terrible. I didn't find that at all. We never had a wait longer than two minutes for an elevator. I would highly recommend the Belvedere when in New York City.

Room Tip: Definitely request the upper floors.

Just finished our. Thanksgiving getaway with the kids. All Nice and helpful staff but one bellman maybe he's having a bad day. I agree with other reviewer as far as room temperature control. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay. We are family of 5.

This hotel is a solid 3 star based on the AAA or Expedia type ratings. The location is fabulous if you plan on going to the theatre and Times Square. The walls were very thin, as we heard our neighbors on a regular basis. We could not control the temperature in the room so I suggest bringing PJ's for hot or cold.. we were hot. The elevators are extremely slow and in demand, so allow extra time when going in and out. There was no "quick stop by the room". Seems that the hotel offers many discount packages for many different prices so check around or even call the hotel to find the best deal you can get. (Some rates include breakfast... ours did not). Bring your own extra hangers. The Concierge and Bellman were very helpful and provided accurate information. The front desk provided accurate information if you asked the right detailed question, so I would suggest asking one of the Bellman or the Concierge. I might stay there again, if the price is right, but will compare other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Up and away from the elevators seemed ok, but the walls are thin.

We just finished an exceptional stay at the Belvedere. Things started out quite well when we arrived several hours before check-in and were immediately given a room. The staff were courteous and helpful in every interaction. This was Thanksgiving week and things were busy, but everybody was very cordial

We were on the 15th floor and had a great view of the city. The room was ENORMOUS especially by NYC standards, and the Kitchenette was very nice to have. Pay the extra few dollars for an executive room, they are very well appointed.

The location was awesome for catching shows on Broadway, watching the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, and taking in the sights. It is a couple blocks from Times Square, far enough to get a good night's rest but close enough to all the action.

I would absolutely recommend this place.

The hotel is located just a short stroll away from Times Square. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. I will definitely stay here on any return visit.
