Quiet Little Gem
Quiet little gem of a hotel conveniently situated with a bonus of the Tile Dome of City Center framed outside my window.

Exceptional 10.0
Lovely visit. I always enjoy my stay at the hotel. There is a theater right across the street. I love running around all day and then just going across the street to see a play. It’s also very convenient a block from 5 th Avenue And lots of choices for different kinds of restaurants. Free WiFi too

Very Good 8.0
good location, small rooms but very clean. Elevators very slow and cramped

Poor 2.0
Terrible hotel
The hotel is in desperate need of a renovation. Everything is old and extremely worn. My room did not have some of the amenities as advertised. The construction outside was so loud during the night I could not sleep at all. When I mentioned it to the hotel, they tried to say it was “garbage trucks”. I stay in NYC about 75 nights a year, I know what garbage trucks sound like and that was not what I heard all night long! I never will stay there again and recommend you do not either!

Stop Looking The Blakely is Where to Stay
I have stayed at The Blakley sereral times. Each time I enjoy it more and remark to friends and family just how wonderful it is. This hotel is a Gem in the very best location to all the sights, central park, museums, and the theater of midtown. Just the best!

Great location in the city!
Great location! We chose it in order to be close to the majority of the attractions in the city. Our room was perfect for our family, we traveled with our two little ones. Radio city music Hall and Times Square all within walking distance, as well as Central Park and its ice-skating rink. We were able to head out in the morning see the sights and then return for an afternoon nap before heading back out in the evening. A continental breakfast offered every morning was also super helpful with having little ones. Subway to the museum and down to the statue just a couple of blocks away.Our room was clean and had a fridge and a microwave which we took advantage of! Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Loved it!
We enjoyed everything about our stay at The Blakely Hotel! The room was a wonderful size for a family of 3. The staff was amazing! The location was very good. The bathrooms could use a facelift but were very clean. We will definitely stay there again!

Classy AF
HVAC / Plumbing systems are a bit noisy but otherwise it was a very nice room albeit an older style an a bit stuffy for my normal taste but it worked
Eric, us2 night business trip
Fair 4.0
NO INTERNET!! How is it possible in NY?
The hotel failed to tell us that they did not have iNternet for more than 7 days. They lied, telling us that they were fixing it and was a matter of 1 hr. We never had Internet while we stayed there. This totally affected my work. We only found out that they did not have internet for more than a week on the second day, and that day I was busy with meeting and not able to move from that hotel. Also the town car we used to take us to JFK basically stole from us, they agreed on one price and charged another! The car didn't even have a business name! Lots like some sort of a scan is going on there.
