Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed with my kids. A little dated, but very, very clean. Great location with subway, Central Park, Hells Kitchen, Times Square, etc all within walking distance. The staff was helpful and extremely nice. I would stay here again.

First trip ever to New York and they made it amazing. Rooms are big and clean and staff are so friendly. Nice atmosphere in the reception. Use of computer for the internet would often use in the middle of the night as I was jet lagged still. Not too far from everything, nice location. Didn't have breakfast as we wanted the freedom of trying breakfast through New York. Would return! Amazing trip and experience.

We traveled with over 50 youth choir members for a concert at Carnegie Hall (1 block away). From the moment we walked in, we knew we were at home. The concierge, waitstaff, housekeeping personnel were absolutely hospitable fantastic and customer oriented. They made sure every one of our needs or desires were met. Constantly asking about what they can do to help us. We would not hesitate to come here again. The rooms were absolutely fantastic. Beds were super comfortable spacious bathrooms and updated beautifully. I don't usually give high marks for hotels, but this one deserves every bit of the 5 stars. Well done!

The Blakely is a great small hotel in an ideal location. It is within walking distance of all the places we wanted to be - Broadway shows, Columbus Circle and the Lincoln Center Jazz venue, MoMA, Central Park and, of course, 5th Avenue shopping. The subway was also just down at the end of the block to get anywhere we wanted to go.

All the staff are very helpful and very pleasant. Our room was clean and comfortable, well-equipped with coffee maker, microwave, mini-refrigerator and dishes. We could easily have taken a simple breakfast in our room but the continental breakfast included in the room rate was very good. The rate also included free Wi-fi, a necessary amenity.

We will stay at the Blakely again the next time we visit NYC. It meets all our needs and wants.

Recently had six days here, room was spacious, good big comfortable beds. Clean rooms, not much of a view and make sure if you want non-smoking to confirm at reception. We had to move as put on a smoking room. Breakfast is adequate. Good location with short walk to Central Park and time square. Staff friendly and helpful.

... to stay. Very central location. Nice English library style foyer and rooms. We started on 13th floor. No issue with lifts. Complimentary breakfast OK. Was given the hotel SUV to take us to JFK airport.

Room Tip: Rear rooms look out over 54th Street.
