The Blakely New York Review

It may be a tried-and-true design motif, but it's hard to resist the English gentlemen's club when it's done right. The Blakely plays it up, with Chesterfield sofas and wood paneling in the lobby. Expect conveniences of home in this boutique Midtown hotel, such as full kitchenettes (sink, mini-fridge, and microwave), free continental breakfast, and free Wi-Fi. Rooms are both functional and comfortable, with large work desks, Frette robes, and pillow-top beds. The fitness center is open 24-hours a day and a complimentary New York Times is delivered daily. Room service is provided by Abboccato, a stylish Italian restaurant with exposed brick walls that gathers a large after-work crowd and also operates the hotel bar.

    The Blakely Review

    Excellent location with easy access to subway or walking to UES or UWS. Rooms are large (by NY standards) and have well appointed baths. The deluxe rooms have small sitting areas and the suites are huge. Wonderful staff and a great little restaurant. Many other lovely dining options very nearby with a great breakfast take-out just across the street. Love The Blakely.
