Contemporary chic. Modern touches such as zebra-print carpeting, brushed steel tables and houndstooth throw pillows feel markedly more downtown than Upper East Side. The nailhead trim, mock-croc elevators lead to 21 floors of similarly mod guestrooms, a rooftop restaurant and long checkered hallways adorned with boxy flower installations.
Bed & Bath
All 197 guestrooms have a contemporary style, with black studded ice buckets, white tufted headboards and dark wood desks. Oversize windows frame expansive views of the East River, the twinkling Queensboro Bridge and the Roosevelt Island Tram — just be sure to use the blackout shades if you want to stay cocooned in the luxe Frette linens. Tech comforts include iPod docking stations and 32-inch flat-screen TVs, and the marble bathrooms have cushy bathrobes and aromatherapy-infused Lather products.
The small gym and business center are welcome extras in this space-saving city, and though the on-site Prime restaurant doesn’t offer room service, it’s worth dining in for the views alone. On the rooftop of the 21-story building, Prime serves upscale kosher fare, such as kobe beef sliders, roasted kabocha squash and a variety of sushi options. The lobby bar is perfect for a nightcap or morning cappuccino, especially during the warmer months, when you can take your beverage alfresco on the connecting patio.
How to Get There
We originally book for with The Bentley for the great price but the customer service we received from Wilson at the front desk will definitely keep us coming back when we take our next trip back to New York.
The bentley hotel was a great hotwl for us. We only spent a little time in the hotel between shopping.The feont desk staff were lovely , friendly and so helpful. 63rd street subway is easy walking distance. Loads of diners and bars nearby.
The Bentley has a good location, my first two visit great room with a magnificent view to the bridge and good bathroom. this time no view at all and the bathroom very old. Lobby old and cheap but I dont care
