“Good when discounted. Location can't be beat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

Promised us an early check-in, "room will be ready by 1pm," which we confirmed at 11AM. When we arrived at 1pm they couldn't find any record of this promise but they said they'd get the room ready ASAP. We waited in the lobby an hour. I asked one of the desk staff twice for an update because I didn't think he would check with housekeeping on his own initiative. Indeed, on the second request he reported the room was ready. It would have been nice if he'd taken a tad more initiative. Room was very good (family suite), actually quite spacious for NYC. Yes, AC is via window units which will make some noise when on, but quieter than the individual AC units one sometimes finds at places like M-courtyard. Temps never got over 80 and we only ran them briefly in the afternoon. Furnishings were mostly very good, but one dresser was a bit worn down with a drawer that wouldn't close. Bath was ok. Very small (you could brush your teeth while sitting on the commode), and needed some attention from the staff (sink wouldn't drain, no stopper so rings and contact lenses would go straight down). Door trim held on with sheet rock screws (yes exposed but painted over), Beds and bath linens were as good as I've experienced anywhere (incl 5 star hotels), and service other than check in was outstanding. All the table lamps had usb plugs, which was a big hit with the kids and wife, who always want to be plugged in and charging. Nice touch that most of the big chains still sometimes lack.

Location is ideal, depending on what it is you will be doing in NYC. Subway is 2 blocks away. Mille-Feuille's 2nd shop is right around the corner for breakfast (Zabar's is 2 blocks away as well). Columbus ave (2 blocks) is chock full of great restaurants. Mid-town is 3 stops away on the #1 line. I prefer this location over most mid-town hotels I've used in the past.

It's not a high-end hotel like Le Parker Meridian by Carnegie Hall (modern/new/immaculate). Think if it as a nice, slightly eclectic, smaller hotel that offers good value, good service and a great location. Highly recommended if you get a discount off their rack rate.

Room Tip: I'd pick rooms on 77th (e.g. not on Broadway) for less noise. There are some rear rooms facing t...

Dear globalservices.

Thank you for spending the time telling us about your excellent experience at Hotel Belleclaire!
We are delightful with your comments regarding our wonderful location and amenities. I love hearing that you loved our spacious Family Suite and were able to take advantage of Belleclaire Hotel, conveniently located a few blocks from Central Park, museums, restaurants and bars.

I apologize for the negative experience in the check-in time when your room was not ready. Our check-in time is at 3.00 pm. I supposed the staff at the Front Desk placed your room on queue to have it ready as soon as possible.
Also I apologize to not confirm you the estimated time to fix the sink. We will make sure this will not happen in your next stay.
We really appreciate your comments related to the usb plugs and the linens.

We hope to see you soon.
Please feel free to contact me directly at reservations@hotelbelleclaire.com or by calling (212) 362 7700 in case your future plans bring you back to New York City.

This hotel was the perfect hotel for our US open Trip. We where on a budget so we drove to Manhattan from Detroit area. It was easy to get to by car. In a great neighborhood, Next to the 79th street Subway, Zabars and central park.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Hotel Belleclaire. We are happy with your comments regarding our comfort.

We love hearing that you were able to take advantage of our prime location. I notice as well your mention about the safe and convenient location of our Hotel Belleclaire. Is true that it’s in a perfect location, just a stone throw away from Central Park and is situated in a friendly neighborhood on the Upper West Side, where there are lots of bars, shops and places; which is very appreciated by our guests.

We appreciate your business and we certainly look forward to welcoming you again soon at Belleclaire!

Have just returned from a six night stay at the Belleclaire before moving on. We were very happy with our time here. The Hotel is in a good position, close to many restaurants, shops, subway, central park and the Hudson river. You felt you were in a local community. Our room was on the 6th floor so had a skyline view but was very quiet which enabled us to have a good nights sleep. The beds were very comfy and clean and the room had a free digital safe, fridge which was useful.
The rooms are compact but adequate only. the wardrobe space was minimal but there wasn't any unused space for a larger wardrobe.All in all we would highly recommend Hotel Belleclaire for a stay in New York.

Room Tip: Higher floors give a skyline view.

We used a groupon for 3 nights. Room was nice, we had a closet and safe. Bathroom was tiny and the shower door didnt seal when closed so there was always tons of water on the floor. Told the front desk but it wasnt fixed before we left. Other than that, we were completely comfortable. Staff was friendly. Concierage was helpful. Would definitely stay again!

This hotel was very nice to stay at and only a block away from the subway which worked very well for us. The front office staff were extremely friendly and I liked the option of keeping my luggage pre and post check in/out free of charge. The free water/juice in the hotel lobby was a nice touch too. The hotel seemed to be in a quieter area and we had a great sleep every night. I would definitely consider staying here again on my next trip to New York.

The rooms are fabulous. Super clean. Bed very comfy. Staff were fantastic friendly and helpful. Great location. Complimentary ice tea which was lovely. Concierge booked my shuttle for me very friendly happy man. Only things that were slighty off putting were the proce of the mini bar $10 for a bottle of water and also sometimes the electronic key for the door wouldnt work but the staff were more than friendly to sort this out. Overall 10/10 fantastic!!

Room Tip: 214 was really nice and quiet!
