I chose Hotel Belleclaire as it is in the upper West side and I needed to be in that area for a teaching workshop that I was attending for the week. I could not have selected a better hotel. I got an excellent deal on a
website and considering the location near Central Park in the upper Westside, fantastic hotel for the price. Very easy to check in. The room was near to perfect with a comfy queen bed and great linens. The bathroom is fairly spacious with CO Bigelow bath products and plenty of towels. A perfect bathro for me would have a tub and shower...only a shower I'm my room. The only teeny tiny complaint: no drawers for clothing items! There is a adequate closet but no shelves inside. I had to pile clothes on top of the safe. Of course, this being NYC, there is a bit of outside noise but with the a/ c and earplugs the problem was resolved ! The location is the best: only a few blocks from Central Park. There's also plenty of eclectic eating establishments and the nearby Westside Market was handy. I couldn't have selected a better hotel!
