Great City Escape

The hotel has a modern touch which I like and the people who worked there were really nice. The only downside of the Hotel is the AC did not work at all on the 21st floor at the lounge/restaurant which was really uncomfortable. I live in Houston, TX and it was hard to handle. The views from the top in the evening are breath taking with the lights and the bridge right next to the Hotel. The location was walking distance to Madison Avenue which was convenient and the TAO restaurant was a great place to eat which was close by as well. I will most likely be visiting the Upper East Side again but will have to make sure the AC works better.

Beautiful room with nice ambiance.

I really liked my room. Well kept and modern/ tasteful furniture. Bed was very comfortable for not being a Westin. Corner room where two walls were windows along full lengths. made for an excellent view from the 10th foor. Restuarant/bar was on the 21st floor and I had a meal (dinner) 1 evening. Was very good. I would eat there again. Bar/restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of other places to eat in town. If you are looking for a hotel with a lively lobby with lots of activity this is not the hotel to be in. If you want a great room at very fair price and close enough to the buzz of Rokefeller or Times Square with a short cab ride the Bentley was a good value. I would stay here again.

A very pleasant surprise

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to a hospital. Although located near the FDR Drive and the 59th Street Bridge, the Bentley was quiet--mostly because the heater was on the whole time. The staff was great, the room was spacious, continental breakfast was reasonable (in the "rooftop restaurant"), and I also found restaurants and places to shop in the area. I would stay there again if I need to be in that part of the East Side.

Great location, price and food

I stayed at the hotel because it was a great value close to Sloan Kettering where a friend was having an operation. It was only a 5 block walk. The room was clean, the people were fantastic and I had one of the best Veal Marsala dinners ever. If I had one complaint, it was the first night where my room was a little warm (I like to sleep in a room at 65 degrees). Turing the temperature down all the way did not seem to have any impact. Otherwise a great experience.

Great location

We are two former New Yorkers on a quick trip to visit friends and family. This location was great for us. The room was great and the staff professional and pleasant. Only two minor quibbles: 1) coffee is available 11am to 11pm, but morning coffee would be more appreciated. 2) it would be helpful to have computers available to guests to check e-mail, print return boarding passes, etc. We don't travel with laptops, since most hotels provide this service.

For those who know Manhattan (or are willing to be adventurous), The Bentley is an easy walk to major subway and bus lines, saving time and money on taxis.

Decent European-style hotel

We stayed at the Bentley hotel in June 2010 with three adult guests. The hotel was clean, service was relatively prompt, and there were no issues. It's a European-style hotel, which means there's no shower door, water gets everywhere when showering, and it's a pain to dry the floor again unless you're really careful. The location is rather far from the subway lines, but it is close to bus lines that'll take you to the metro stations if you're not inclined to walk from York to Lexington (maybe a mile or so) to catch the subway.

OK for the money

Although we were on the second floor opposite the elevators, it was very quiet & we were there on a Saturday night.

Several casual restaurants to choose from just a block away - a good diner & a hamburger place.I put a 1 for dining options because we didn't use any of the dining at the hotel & there is no option for that. How do you rate something you didn't use?

Nearby Hospital

Stayed here while my husband was being treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Liked that I was able to easily walk to and from Hotel feeling safe and most comfortable upon arriving. Linens and the view was a bonus.
