Overview

Top-notch customer service at this centrally located hotel
Small fitness center
Looking for an intimate stay nestled inside midtown Manhattan's bustling city blocks? Then The Blakely is a good bet. Located on 55th Street, just steps away from high-fashion streets and iconic city landmarks like Rockefeller Center and the Museum of Modern Art, this swanky boutique makes an excellent home base for travelers planning to sightsee. Plus, each of the stylish accommodations comes appointed with oak baseboards, sumptuous down comforters, marble bathrooms, Frette bathrobes and complimentary Wi-Fi access – all much-appreciated amenities, according to recent guests. But previous visitors say that this hotel's best perk of all is its immaculate service, from the courteous hotel concierge to the attentive front desk staff. However, some wished the on-site fitness center was larger and offered more equipment.

The hotel doesn’t scream “Big Apple” but it’s a pleasant conceit nonetheless, and the staff bend over backwards to make guests feel like they’re members of the club.

Styled like an old British social club, the quaint, 118-room Blakely boutique offers a hushed vibe, great Midtown West location between Central Park and Times Square, and large rooms with coffeemakers, microwaves, Frette robes, free Wi-Fi, and marble bathrooms.
