Clean and convenient!!

This was our second time at The Bentley. We enjoyed the clean rooms and nicely appointed bathrooms. Linens and comforters are very snazzy. Very convenient to Weil-Cornell Medical Center. The rooftop bar offers a wonderful view at night.

Great service. Nice rooms.

A little bit far to walk to subway, but bus service worked very well. Good places to eat a few blocks away. Staff always friendly.

Great for a mid week getaway!

The Bentely is great if you need to be on the Eastside of New York. It was perfect for me.

weekend getaway

The hotel was perfect for what we needed, which was mostly sleeping and showering . The room was very clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The air in our room was broken and within 10 minutes of calling the front desk they had addressed and fixed the problem. The hotel was a little bit of a walk from the subway but not too bad. We would stay here again.

Great view of the 59th st bridge. Good continental breakfast. Room decor very uneven, some 5 star items and some 2 star items. Overall a good value for the dollar in NYC.

Good for Price

The room was small, but not crazy small. Comfortable and chic. I ended up with two full size beds instead of the queen size I reserved, but no big deal. I think they're "european style" beds, because my feets definitely hung off the end, and i' only 5'10'', but it was still comfy. The staff was friendly enough. The elevators were slow. I don't know why elevator speed is a concern for people on [...], but in case it is for you, they're definitely slow. I liked the dimly lit hallways -- it felt relaxing and modern. The air conditioners were definitely having a hard time keeping up -- and it was only about 75 degrees outside. I'd be hesitant to stay there in the height of summer.

a bit run-down

The best thing I can say is that the bed was VERY comfortable. the room also had a HUGE window with a great view. downside's were furnture was battered, no drawers for clothing, tiny closet (we stayed for four days so it mattered). Worst thing was the hot water - it was unreliable. Not a lovely hotel but OK for the price. It's off the beaten path which makes it a little pain to get to the subway, etc. but overall, a good value for the money. also, could not get the maid to leave two sets of towels to save my life (even though two of us were registered)

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.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

I like to walk a lot in New York City just to venture out and find unique things. Just bring some comfortable shoes to walk in.
