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.

Negatives first...
First arrived... rude man on the desk when we wanted to know more on the $160 facility fee as we HAD to pay it regardless! We Was not made aware of it and quite frank absolutely pointless as we didn’t use nothing off it!

Concierge helped when we arrived with luggage and then after that concierge who??
Not once did they ever open the door for us they just stood about.

The room: we had to ask for a kettle, cups and spoons... it has a kitchen but yet only a microwave? So yeah totally not helpful!
Beds were ok.. bit hard but that’s just a risk you take when sleeping away from home.
Heating was way too hot.. they turned it down but it was still way too hot and had air con on every night.

Badly stained bath and hairs on tiles

Watch out for the step bit between the floors as through the night you forget and bang your toes!
Fridge had no light and part of the inside racking missing.

Good points
Tv
Maid came in everyday
Good location
Deli round the corner had nice food for lunch!
Mamas down the road did a fab breakfast!
One male member of staff on the front desk was sooo funny he kept my dad talking over an hour just talking about everything, it was good knowledge and he was so kind and helpful.
Safe in room
Toilet flush is amazing in New York! Haha

I wouldn’t come back to this hotel I would certainly upgrade if I ever came back to New York in the future. But that’s just MY opinion and not everybody agrees but each to their own and that’s my view.

Great sleep

This hotel was a superb find .I loved the 1920s look of it .it was clean and very nice size for me and my daughter we each had a double bed to ourselves.the beds were so comfy we were fast asleep for a good 10-12 hours a night. Very snug .there were no kettles available for me but I asked for two mugs for our room and was able to boil water in the microwave in the mugs so we could enjoy our coffee that I bought in my suitcase .the staff were friendly and helpful. We loved our stay.they kindly held our bags for free after checkout so we could spend one more afternoon shopping before going back to the airport. Would not hesitate to stay again.Thankyou to the staff at belvedere.

Stayed here for 6 nights 24th Dec with hubby and granddaughter. Lovely spacious room with kitchenette and a fab view of the city.never tried the breakfast as granddaughter is really picky ! But did pop in restaurant to have a look and a good selection available . Got a chance to see Bruce Springsteen coming out of the theatre he was playing in which is just a block away . Added bonus . Also little corner shop near by if needed . Over a lovely hotel and would definatly recommend

The Belvedere hotel is a lovely Art Deco hotel within a couple of minute walk of the Theatre district, Time Square and many others.
The rooms are of a very good standard and most of the staff are very very helpful however, the hotel does not deliver on the website promises.
We were a family of 5 inc a child of 7, the site promised coffee makers in every room. My wife and I were lucky to be upgraded (the hotel obviously wanted the larger and lees equipped rooms)to a room with a very large bed and coffee machine but the other room had nothing but a microwave!!! My wife asked for coffee making equipment for the other room and after much to and fro over "but you were upgraded" and "I'm intrigued by which website you saw that on" they delivered a kettle to the room.
There is a cafe onsite offering free coffee from 06:30 - 11-30 and a buffet breakfast for $19.95 per head. There is also a restaurant offering all you can eat buffet at $65 per head.
We were there for 5 nights and loved it. The things mentioned were easily remedied.
We would stay there again.
One word of warning and not for the hotel. The cost of food and drink is extortionate, £10 for a small glass of wine and $15 - 20 for a burger and chips. Pay for attraction passes in advance and save lots of money.
