NYE in NYC

Hotel was a perfect location for us to explore, the beds were slightly too small, the view we had from room 1203 was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and courteous. We had a fantastic visit to NYC and The Bentley.

Not perfect but I would stay here again.

The hotel is attractive (contemporary decor), clean, and our room was a generous size for NYC. Good view of city,area felt safe. We didn't have hot water for first 12 hours. Problem was hotel-wide. Free coffee available 24 hours in lobby or top floor (restaurant.) Hotel fix prix breakfast too expensive. Good diner one block away. Staff friendly but several requests took 2 calls (could we have a clock in our room) or took way to0 long (45 minutes to get ice delivered to room on Sunday night.) Assuming the water problem was isolated case, we would consider staying at the Bentley again.

Nice view!

We enjoyed the view from the 17th floor and liked the style of the interior. It cost a lot though, and the location was a long walk from the subway.

The price is right.

The only thing I didn't particularly care for was the shower lacking complete closure. (It's literally a glass that you can't budge covering half the shower) The other I didn't like was that their tv only had component input. (no hdmi, dvi, vga, etc) I was consequently unable to connect my laptop to the tv and use my own media on their screen. In this situation a usb port would've been handy as well. But everything else was rather wonderful especially for the price. My complaints are probably at the fringe of what people want and or expect but I wanted to throw this out there.

Really Nice Hotel

The hotel was very nice. It was right off RFK drive and was in a nice section of NY. The rooms were clean and neat and had great views of the city. No complaints for a quick weekend stay. Staff was great, and low cost parking. Outside there were always cabs waiting and open. Lobby was nice and hotel bar was great. Close walking to resturants and bars. Will stay here again.

Great getaway

We were in NYC for a night and wanted a perfect hotel. The location is great and views are stunning! The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I personally called down several times to ask for directions etc and the guys at the front desk were always friendly, courteous and ready to help. I would definitely recommend the Bentley hotel if you are staying in NY. The Staff is great, rooms are beautiful and well equipped and the view from the rooftop restaurant is just AMAZING.
