Overview

A hotel in the heart of it all, blocks from Times Square, the Museum of Modern Art and Rockefeller Center

The Lowdown

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.

Rooms

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
awake.

Dining

When
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.

Location

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.

Mum and daughter trip

Hi, my daughter and i stayed in the belvedere for the first time and loved it. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful, very clean and well stocked with toiletries, coffee etc which was a bonus. The hotel is a great spot, 5 mins from time square so its central to everything. I would definately recommend this hotel to stay and if or when we go back to new york i will be staying in the Belvedere.

RIP OFF
Reviewed 3 days ago

Beware!!! Old Hotel, Room too hot, with air conditioner in window. Too many added charges which are not needed. $30.00 hidden charge per night for a free breakfast, WIFI, a glass of wine. NOT Needed. They force you to take it even if you do not want. So this is not FREE even though they promote it as FREE. The free so called breakfast is terrible, bagels and juice. Plus they tax you on the $30.00 even though you paid tax on the entertainment mandatory tax. Staff does not want to hear anything Antiquated check out. half hour wait. Parking was $55.00 when I was told it would be 40.00 Only redeeming factor is the hotel is clean and convenient area. I will not stay here again. Too many added hidden charges.

Management sucks/hidden fees
Reviewed 4 days ago

When I showed up to check out, i was told that there was a fee of $35, first time it was mentioned to me. I obviously said I was not authorizing that payment.

Then they got the manager who came over and pulled out a piece of paper claiming that I signed the paper, I NEVER signed that paper. That was someone else's signature on the paper. I explained that to him he didnt care. Extremely rude on top of this false claim that I signed a contract that I never did.

This hidden fee brings the price up to what the other hotels are in the area. I would just go to one of the others that is actually nice

Great Stay!

We were extremely pleased with our stay at the Belvedere hotel. From the outside of the building, with its beautiful facade, to the well appointed room and lobby we were pleasantly surprised by the 1920's charm of the place. Check in was easy and the staff quiet friendly. I mentioned it was my boyfriends birthday and was upgraded to the executive king. The room was a very good sized room for NYC and comfortable. The only "complaint" we have is that the walls are not sound proof and you can hear pretty much everything in the halls too.
They offered a free wine hour between 5-6 pm which was a lovely little perk. We also took advantage of the valet parking service which was so convenient for us. (You pay one price for a 24 hour period).
I would definitely consider staying here again!

We stay at the Belvedere about every two years when we visit the city to celebrate my wife’s birthday and our anniversary. The service is always outstanding!
This trip we were upgraded to an Executive King when we mentioned our anniversary. David in housekeeping was able to find us the perfect pillows when we had trouble sleeping with the first ones. We both have to have very thin pillows due to neck issues. Everyone on this staff goes to extremes to take care of their guests. The hotel is beautiful, clean and within two blocks of Times Square. But you would never know it because it is so quiet.
The Belvedere is our favorite place to stay of all the places we visit around the country.
