Belvedere Hotel could deck itself out into something so bright and bold
that you’d never want to leave, but then you’d miss out on the landmark
that you came for. Sure, this hotel gives you its own dose of character,
offering not only a café, but a Brazilian churrascaria. Still, with its
flashing lights and vivid videos, Times Square eclipses pretty much
everywhere else on Earth in personality, and that’s why this property –
right around the corner and down the street from the iconic plaza –
otherwise keeps it simple and straightforward.
Wake up in the
most energetic neighborhood of the city that never sleeps, and stroll
five minutes over to the main drag itself, where the skyscraper-side
screens never stop cycling through ads in high-definition technicolor.
Take coffee and a pastry up to the electric-red steps rising high above
the bustling pedestrians, and hop back down to score Broadway tickets at
the TKTS booth. Hit any of the 10 nearby subway lines to travel almost
anywhere you want in the city, but make sure to head back by 11:57pm.
That’s when the billboards all change to modern art for exactly three
minutes, for the nightly Midnight Moment display.
There are 352 rooms at Belvedere Hotel, and each is
designed to serve as a cozy base between your sightseeing outings. Your
room will have marble floors, granite bathrooms and luxe bathrobes; top
it off with a queen bed in plush bedding, and you can count on a great
night’s sleep – if the city’s exhilarating energy doesn’t keep you
you’re hungry and want to stay in the hotel, you can choose between
Belvedere Café and Churrascaria Plataforma. The first serves breakfast –
you can choose between a continental or American one – while the second
specializes in rodizio-style Brazilian meats, paired with your choice
of salad-bar fare or wine.
As a guest at
Belvedere Hotel, you’re just up the street and around the corner from
Times Square, as well as legendary Broadway theaters. Tack on another
few blocks, and you’re at the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center
or Madison Square Garden, and should you want to hit another neck of the
woods entirely, you’re within six blocks of 10 subway lines that can
take you to almost every Manhattan neighborhood, and beyond.
How to Get There
My daughter and I stayed at the Belvedere for 2 nights in September. It is on a nice quiet street but close enough to walk to anywhere you would like to go to in the neighbourhood. We stayed in a renovated Executive room with two double beds and it also had a small fridge and microwave. However.....there are no glasses, cups, cutlery or crockery to use in the microwave or to make a hot drink. Just some plastic and cardboard cups. What a shame. No milk, either. We did request a couple of wine glasses and they were promptly brought to the room. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and everything is clean. I know the area well and there are plenty of great restaurants and bars in close proximity to the hotel as well as easy access to all the Broadway theatres. I would recommend the Belvedere for it's excellent location, especially for first time New York visitors.
The Belvedere is close to the Broadway Theatres and Times Square.
Friendly, Comfortable and very convenient. Does a great breakfast.
If you like exploring a city on foot this is a great place to start from and a restful place to come home.
Sirens in the middle of the night can wake you but I guess that's NY!
The friendly welcome helps to make one feel at home. This was our second stay here, and we were not disappointed. This hotel has all the basics one needs when visiting NYC. A comfortable room and bed, and a well functioning bathroom. A good position for nearby restaurants. Helpful staff. The hotel also has a breakfast room offering both continental and American breakfasts.
A nice touch this time round was the complimentary glass of wine offered in the foyer late afternoon. Great to make acquaintances and exchange stories.
I really enjoyed my stay, me and my two kids.
Everything as described.
We booked for executive and the hotel gave us a better room - superior.
It was very comfortable, big enough and very clean!! which was the most important to me. I also has a nice view.
Location is amazing. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is an option, and they have two classes for your choice. It was very good.
I will definitely come again.
Thank you Belvedere Hotel.
We booked a Superior Double Double in case we had both of our adult children with us. Both were and it was large enough for 2 parents and 2 adult children for 5 nights.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
The buffet breakfast was a bargain.
The free drinks at 5-6pm were appreciated.
We will be back.
