Clean, but not as depicted in website pics – Small creepy rooms, same for the hallways, window air conditioner, poor elevators, not interested in customer service, room not ready until after 4pm, when voicing disappointment manager charged $50. Not worth the value.
nice and quiet – We've stayed at the Belvedere twice now. It's just off 8th avenue and it 's very quiet. It's a short walk to all the theaters. Rooms are average size for a room in New York. We had a king size bed-it was so comfortable that we fell asleep quickly and hated to get out of it. Bellmen are fantastic. They will help you with whatever you need and are NOT the kind that hold out their hands for a tip. Good courteous service from everyone. The only drawback is that the elevators are small and take too long to get to you. They can probably fit 6 people if crammed in and maybe 4 with luggage. Most people don't know to use the side elevator. It's to the right of the lobby near the stairs. The left side elevator is a service elevator, but we go on it a few times out of frustration. There was also no air conditioning in the hallways which made waiting for the elevator seem even longer. The air in the room was fabulous.
If you want a good hotel that is clean and decent and friendly, it's worth the money!
Wonderful choice – A friend and I stayed here and we were absolutely pleased with such wonderful service, clean, comfortable rooms, and affordable price. The hotel is located two blocks from broadway... so take in as many shows as you like. Next time I return to New York, this hotel will be where I stay!
Excellent Hotel, Very Accommodating – We stayed at this hotel for Thanksgiving 2003. It was a wonderful stay! The staff was friendly and very helpful. Always right there when we had special requests for extra towels, etc... They even switched our room when one of the beds in our first room was too firm for our taste. It is right in the heart of it all with a wonderful little Mexican restaurant right next door. It is within close walking distance to the Times Square area and the Subway is just a block away. The rooms are decent sized for NYC and the water pressure in the shower was excellent! The rooms are clean and the lobby is beautiful! If you are looking for a wonderful hotel in the heart of it all... I would definitely recommend the Belvedere!
GREAT PLACE TO STAY HERE! – My wife & I just returned from a six night stay at The Belvedere Hotel. We booked the "NY1" through the Belvedere and loved it! We made some requests when we made the reservations in April including arriving late(midnight) and our requests(King bed, 8th floor above) were set when we arrived without even asking! That was the first example of a week long attachment with quality service from all staff. The room was very nice and clean with good A/C. The only thing we would suggest is to have dresser and mirror in room together to allow another dressing area with power outlet. Bathroom could be larger especially the sink, but it is NYC and I have stayed elsewhere and bathrooms are always small in city. We enjoyed breakfast each morning and saved $ as a result. Incredible price value with this convenient location!!!
Comfort smack in the center of New York City. – The Scene
It's easy to be impressed with this Midtown hotel--just take a look at its first-floor Romanesque facade. Inside the spacious lobby, which is highlighted by a marble floor with a large sun in the middle, you'll find a concierge desk and a business center. The center offers Internet, fax and copy services. The front desk staff is eager to please.
The 400 boutique-style rooms are loaded with standard amenities. They include hair dryers, safety deposit boxes and ironing boards. In-house movies and Nintendo video games are also provided. The kitchenettes have microwaves, refrigerators and coffee makers. The hotel hosts conferences and offers a 900-square-foot meeting room with all the necessary equipment.
This Hotel is a 10! – My friends and I came to NYC last summer for a weekend trip and we stayed at the Belvedere. This hotel is amazingly CLEAN, the staff is very friendly/helpfull. (We wanted to know where we could find some cool places to eat and they were eager to help us and look through the phone book) The rooms are well put together and the marble bathrooms make a nice luxurious accent. The hotel is in a great, quiet location, only a short walking distance from Timesquare which makes everything easy to reach. My friends and I are going to NY this May and I made sure we booked this hotel again. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Great Value! – Wonderful hotel! First time staying in NY. This is a great value for your money. We changed rooms three times and hotel staff were very accommodating. I work for a hotel in Canada and am very picky about things. The first room was wonderful but beside the elevator. I had read previous reviews stating the rooms beside the elevator got unbearably hot. The second room was quite old and unrefurbished to the new style they are offering in other rooms. The third room was perfect. Great view and nicely refurbished to updated standards! We were also checked in before noon! Very spacious rooms with handy little sink and fridge for storing drinks and snacks. Great little bar right next door to the hotel for nightcaps as well.
WHAT A DEAL! – This hotel is wonderful. I have stayed at Helmsley and Salisbury. The Belvedere makes them look like 1 star hotels.
The rooms were clean and spacious. No wallpaper was peeling off of the walls. The bathrooms were marble and tastefully deocrated. The beds were comfy, too. The staff was more than delighted to help us anytime we needed something. It is close to everything. I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The price is right so "come on down." You won't be disappointed.
Very Clean!!! – My husband and I stayed at the Belvedere on our vacation in July of 2003. What a great bargain! I also have never been in such a clean hotel room! Excellent location! We also loved the kitchenette. Nice to have a sink, countertop, and refrigerator. I can't say enough about this hotel. We will definitely stay at the Belvedere again! It was a bit hard to catch the elevator when we were checking out as it was full of other people (and their bags) trying to check out too, but that is a small price to pay for all of the positives about this hotel.
