About Belvedere Hotel
The Belvedere Hotel, just steps from New York City’s theater district, offers modern comforts and a little grandeur with its amenities and Art Deco decor. Built in 1928, this boutique hotel boasts a European-inspired façade featuring windows embellished with arches and columns. Inside, guests are greeted by friendly bellmen and touches of Jazz Age opulence, including terrazzo floors, sleek furnishings and golden elevators.
Located just a few blocks from Times Square, the Belvedere Hotel somehow feels tucked away from the noisy, bustling hubbub. Nestled on the west side of Midtown, the hotel is just a few blocks from Restaurant Row — the food-laden strip of West 46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues — and easy walking distance to Central Park, Rockefeller Center and a number of Midtown attractions.
In Italian, Belvedere means “beautiful view,” and indeed, a few of the hotel’s west side rooms offer lovely glimpses of the Hudson River. Executive rooms offer luxurious marble flooring in the bathrooms and showers, plus comfortable, stylish furnishings. Standard rooms, decorated in warm tones, are simple but modern. Hints of ‘20s-era charm can be found in the hallways of the Belvedere Hotel, with its slender doorways, decorative molding and old-style mail chutes that drop your letters into the basement for safe sending.
It’s the thoughtful amenities that make the Belvedere Hotel feel like home, especially for extended-stay guests. Every room features a kitchenette complete with microwave, mini-fridge and coffee maker — perfect for preparing small meals and storing restaurant leftovers. Plus, there’s a coin-operated laundry room in the basement, a 24-hour fitness facility with multiple cardio machines and DVD players for in-room use (available upon request). Above all, the staff — including the general manager, concierge and doormen — is friendly and helpful.
Did you know?
Madison Square Garden was located near The Belvedere on 8th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets from 1925 to 1968. Rumor has it that many athletes and celebrities, like Fred Astaire, who played at the Garden stayed at the Belvedere Hotel.
Before the restaurant Churrascaria Plataforma opened on the hotel’s first floor, the space was once a ballroom, and in later years, a nightclub.
The Belvedere has been a non-smoking hotel since 2006.
The Belvedere is an ideal hotel for visitors who want to sightsee in Midtown, but want to return to a quiet, comfortable respite at the end of a long day. Foreign travelers, who tend to stay six or seven days, enjoy the self-service laundry facility and kitchenette where they can prepare a few meals (and save a little on their meal budgets). Business travelers will appreciate the meeting rooms, business center and 24-hour fitness center.
