Nice but technologically challenged

Nice hotel with clean rooms and a modern feel. I had a good experience even though the water heater failed on the second day I was there. The staff fixed it quickly. The restaurant/bar on the roof has views but has a limited food selection. The internet service is horrible. I don't know if they are getting interference from somewhere else but I couldn't get past a 'poor' connection. It's good enough to read emails -- log on, go do something, read emails (gulp!). If you need a good connection or plan on working in your room -- this is not the right place for you.

Not a bad place

The staff was friendly and professional. The location is a bit out of the way, but the rooms are quite nice. Had to pay for internet, and it was quite expensive and slow.

The Ritz Diner is a short walk up 62rd Street to 1st Avenue. It's a great place for breakfast or a late night snack on your way back to the hotel.

Decent Manhattan Hotel. Good Price.

I was in New York for 3 nights visiting a friend. The elevators were extremely slow, I was given the wrong room at first, and then my actual room was very small. Besides that the staff was friendly and the room was clean. The location was good. If you are a walker it is a great place to try. The room service was non-existent. I had to walk to a gas station a couple times to get something to eat. Overall it would have been a great stay, but I had a late flight and wanted a late checkout. It cost me an extra $125 to get a late checkout. Kind of a ripoff.

You can get a room cheap at this hotel through orbitz. Just make sure you are fine with staying in a smaller hotel room.

Reasonably good value

Everything about the hotel was fine. The room was comfortably cool. I am a value traveler. Internet - wifi - was not free. Free internet would have added a lot of value.

Just Ok...

Work related stay. The hotel caters to customers whom reserved there stay directly thru the hotel. Heating and Ac units in rooms are very outdated and below average.

Good Enough

The Bentley staff is excellent. The hotel itself needs some work, but by and large is good. On our last stay, the room we were assigned had a nonfunctioning air conditioner. The bellman noted the problem immediately and got us assigned to a new room, much nicer except that it didn't have enough bathroom towels. This was corrected immediately and cordially.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Ritz Diner is one long block's walk away on 62nd and 1st. There's an excellent grocery store under the bridge at first, with places in the store to eat what one has bought there. Numerous other restaurants are located in the area, on 1st Avenue.

"Worked for me"

This was a quick, overnight trip and the Bentley worked out great for that. The rate was good, room & bath were clean (great bed pillows!) and the desk staff were very helpful in giving directions for navigating public transportation during the little snowstorm that was happening. Can't speak to the restaurant or other amenities. Would stay here again.

Great quiet place

Room was quiet which surprised me considering the proximity to the FDR. Nice view of the East River. Convenient spot - easy to get in and out. Easy to get a taxi. Parking under the hotel (with a gas station no less - a rarity in NY!) at a very reasonable price for hotel guests. Friendly staff.

good customer service

The room was too hot, you can't control the temperature, and the air conditioner is noisy. The customer service was good - they got us a fan and were very prompt.
