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.

Fine Choice

The Bentley Hotel is a fine choice for Manhattan. It is close enough to Midtown to give easy access to that area, yet far enough way to make things quiet and restful.

Great East Side location

This hotel is within easy walking distance of eating places on 1st and 2nd Avenues. It's really within walking distance of shopping on Lex, Park and 5th and an easy walk to Central Park. It's a quiet neighborhood. The bar/restaurant has great views. The room rate was very reasonable for NYC. It's our new place to stay!

Upper East Side Delight

The staff that checked me in and out were most courteous and accomodating; they gave me a room high up which I prefer. And it had a great view of the East River, the busy Queensboro Bridge, and the Roosevelt Island gondola. The room was really good sized for Manhattan; the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom beautifully done. The only odd thing is that a white electric stove was located along one wall and sort of stuck out into the room. Although it had a fridge in it and a microwave above (which I am sure some guests would take advantage of),it looked decidedly out-of-place in the otherwise rather chicly decorated room. You should know that it is on York Ave. and there are no stores or restuarants right next door, but if you take the block-long walk up to First you'll see everything you need. And I found it quite convenient to the 79th Street Lexington Ave Line. I did note that their restaurant on the top floor - again, the views are fab - was closed on weekends for dinner which I thought inconvenient for a first class hotel. But the bar there was open, and actually has quite reasonable prices for NYC! I think travelers to NYC who want to hang in the Upper East Side will truly enjoy this hotel.

The hotel's restaurant is open every day for a buffet breakfast you can buy, but if you just want coffee to bring to your room, they will give it to you free, and it's good!
