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.

good choice

The staff was friendly and very helpful. The location was great for our purpose and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. The only annoyance was that the acoustics were bad and we heard conversations from neighboring rooms, and our room faced the street so that was a bit noisy too.Overall though good choice for a hotel.

Great Midtown East Hotel

The hotel is highly recommended. The interior is modern and decent sized for a Manhattan hotel. It is located in Midtown East about a 10-minute walk from the large Lexington and 59th street MTA stop. A cab from LGA will cost about 22 before tip.

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.

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.

no restaurant, cold room, dirty

we had worst experience ever the room was cold and dirty it was our 34 annaversary and wanted to stay in and wanted to enjoy the rooftop restaurant but it was not open to us this particular day. we had to change plans and drive somewhere to eat which meant we had to take our car out of the garage and pay again to put car back in. THE WORST

Good if on a budget.....

The hotel is nice, however, I was there for five nights and received bar soap and a washcloth once during my entire stay. The rooftop restaurant was closed on Friday and Saturday nights for a private party, so room service was unavailable, as well as dining for hotel guests! Walls are thin..I was kept awake by my noisy neighbors and the loud music from the private party. Hotel staff was friendly. Don't think I will stay here again. Too many negatives.

Ups and downs

The best about this hotel was the view from top floor restaurant, but breakfast was lacking. No warm meats or eggs. No freshly baked breads, very basic breakfast for $13.00. Air conditioner in room very noisy, though otherwise room was comfortable, roomy and quite. Worst about this hotel is location, 5 blocks from subway, closest popular department store is also 5 blocks away.
