The Blakely New York
Ranked #130 of 471 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Great stay at the Blakely! This hotel is conveniently located mid block on 55th Street between 6th and 7th Ave., tucked away from the bustle. The location can't be beat as you are walking distance to Times Square, Rock Center, Radio City, Central Park and so much more. There's a Hertz Car rental and parking garage located right next door, and a connecting Italian restaurant in the Lobby where they also offer a nice complimentary continental breakfast each morning until 10:30am. Our room was very clean, the bathroom spacious, the closet large, the king-sized bed super comfy and the Keurig coffee maker with complimentary supplies very handy. Our only negatives were the super slow internet and very early 8:15 am Saturday morning knock on the door from housekeeping, but other wise the Blakely lived up to its well-deserved TripAdvisor rating. If you're looking for glitz and swank this is not the place for you, but the Blakely is a very affordable, modest, and quiet place to stay. We will absolutely be back - great job Blakely!

We recently stayed at the Blakely for 8 nights. The room we had (we got upgraded to a suite) was quite and moderately clean with very comfortable beds. My understanding is that all rooms have a frig. and sink. A basic complementary breakfast is available. Housekeeping was excellent during our stay. Even if we were gone for only an hour the housekeeping staff would get in and quickly clean our room before our return. The hotel does not have a pool, but it does have a basic exercise facility. It is very close to the N,Q,R subway line. There is no grandiose entrance hall to this hotel--it's just a hotel with quality rooms. Staff were always friendly during our stay. My only complaint is that there wi-fi was of inferior quality (speed). Overall, a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Upper floors tend to be quieter. Overall, I felt that this was a safe area of mid-town for my daugh...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nites. Great location within walking distance of many NYC attractions. Public parking facility next door. Room was clean, roomy with excellent furnishings. Bathroom was also roomy. Staff was very personable and exceptionally helpful. Will definitely stay there again.

We were presently surprised by this hotel. This hotel is a great find with very clean rooms, solid luxury furnishing. It has the feel of the top hotel and the price was right. Very large rooms with nice bathrooms.

Room Tip: high rooms have not much noise.

The Blakely is a great hotel, in short walking distance of many NYC attractions. The room was larger than expected. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The lady at the front desk printed us Mapquest directions for both walking and taking the subway to a few places. The free breakfast was a welcome surprise, but was somewhat lackluster. Overall, this is a great place to stay.
