I've stayed at the Blakely many times and always for business. The staff is always very welcoming and the hotel offers unique rooms that are spacious and well appointed. I had a separate sitting area from the bedroom which would be great for someone with a family. The bathrooms are good and the showers offer great water pressure. I never...

I made a non refundable reservation through Booking.com for Dec 6th for one night. I was a half block away from the hotel at around 4:15pm when I saw a call on my cell from an unknown number. Moments later I came to the hotel and stood at the front desk waiting for two staffers to complete phone calls from...

Dear PAM_from_LINY Thank you for your review, I take all guest feedback very seriously. I apologize you had to be relocated to our sister property.

The Blakely Hotel is centrally located and filled with attentive staff and well proportioned rooms that you would normally expect to cost a lot more. In an easy 10 minute walk, you could be strolling in Central Park, windowshopping down fifth Avenue or taking on a fabulous show in the theater district. And, if you don't mind going underground, you...

I have to say we really liked the entire stay for my wife and 17 year old son.

We were moved to the Blakley during the busy Thanksgiving season. What a wonderful surprise. Although older, the attention to detail, room conveniences, great front desk service, & delightful adjacent breakfast room made this the best hotel expericence in a long time! We would certainly return & highly reccommend.

After years of staying at the Park Central where prices have skyrocketed since remodel decided to give the Blakely a try. Rooms are traditional, but very comfortable. The staff couldn't be more accommodating. In walking distance of Time Square, Central Park, Columbus Circle and so much more. I look forward to staying again.

The public areas are small but the rooms were more than spacious, including a completely separate living area along with the bedroom and nicely appointed bathroom.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
