Great Deal – I searched far and wide to find a great hotel and great deal for our vacation in July and this was it. The lobby is beautiful, there are plenty of restaurants nearby and easy walk to times square and central park. We will stay here again.
Nice Hotel! – Quiet location, clean rooms, king sized bed (very unusual for midtown Manhattan rooms) were plusses. The only drawbacks are that the bathrooms are very small and there is no room service - but all of New York is basically room service since you can get anything delivered. High speed internet access was also unavailable in our room ("standard" room, perhaps available in "suites"). The kitchenette was great to have around, too.
A Little 'Big' Hotel in the city – In a city renown for overpriced tourist traps, the Belvedere is clean and unpretentious. You can choose valet parking or opt to park a block away in a valisated garage. Two blocks to Times Square and close enough to the Olympia Diner for an economical meal. The rooms are clean and fairly spacious, with in-room coffee, internet access & games, etc. Nothing will take your breath away, but if you want that, pay the money and go to the Plaza. The Belvedere gets you a nice room in the heart of the city at a price that will bring you back.
great hotel – Hotel was great. Clean, updated, good breakfast, good value. My only complain would be the very small bathroom sink. Water gets all over the place when you wash your face. That was my only gripe. The location is fine with subway lines very near. It is near times square but far enough to aviod the noise. Our room was spacious and very quite. (we were on the 12th floor -very good!). Service was excellent and people very nice.
I would return to Belvedere anytime! – We just spent 3 nights at the Belvedere and we were very impressed. The staff is extremely helpful. The hotel is very clean (I'm a stickler on this!) and it was so close to everything that we wanted to see/do or was close to a subway entrance that would get us there. It was far enough away from the avenues and on a one-way street, making it relatively quiet, except for the fire station nearby.
Great location, wonderful staff – This European style boutique hotel was very conveniently located in Midtown, though not directly (rather right off of) a busy street which kept the noise level to a minimum. The doormen and staff were very accomodating, and you got a strong sense that the doormen and other staff had your security in mind at all times (I was a woman traveling alone on business). A very eclectic mix of nicer restaurants and even nice cheap restaurants were very proximal, making it easy to find good meals at the end of a long day. The rooms were larger than most for this price. I couldn't have been happier, and will be a repeat customer.
1925 Gem – On a quiet street but very close to lots of action and restaurant row, this affordable hotel is hard to beat. Friendly staff and cool art deco lobby, plus decent rooms with fridge, coffee, and microwave in case you want to eat your leftovers - but who can, with all the great dining choices so close. My husband stayed here on a business trip, and I tagged along to take in the city. I hope the prices stay reasonable here.
Stay here when you come to NYC!! – Great overall experience, resonable room rates (even during new years) Nice service and friendly housekeepers (very rare in NYC). Stayed here for 5 nights after Christmas and through NEw YEars. Location is great, far enough away from TS to not hear too much noise, but close enough to get just about anywhere quickly on foot. Will be staying here again in Spring. Bathrooms are roomy.
Great Value and Comfort – This hotel was great. It is in a perfect location for sight seeing and walking to key places. The room was very clean and beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the service was excellent. The prices are also very good. I would stay here again. We stayed for 8 days and they took good care of us!
Location,Location,Location – For the price, location, cleanlines, and unbelievable staff, I can't imagine ever staying anywhere else next time in New York. This was my 5th time in New York. I finally found my 'home away from home'.
