About Bentley Hotel
The Upper East Side is dotted with boutique hotels, but few are as close to the East River as the Bentley Hotel. And while this elegant spot boasts stellar views of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge – also called the 59th Street Bridge – looking out towards Queens, it is nonetheless a prime location close to Midtown East businesses, shopping hot-spots along Fifth Avenue and Midtown must-sees like Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Central Park.
As for the hotel: The bright, airy rooms are stylishly outfitted with handsome, high-end furnishings and sleek, marble-lined bathrooms. Expect a host of boutique amenities, including high-thread-count Frette linens and designer toiletries. Ample room windows might have you gazing out at the East River, but any guest can see that stunning vista from the Bentley Rooftop, a spacious rooftop bar and restaurant where you can enjoy cocktails surrounded by a sparkling cityscape.
And if you’ve got the time and inclination, head about a mile uptown – along the river, if you’re the walking kind – and at 84th St. you’ll discover the leafy Carl Schurz Park. Often called one of “New York City’s best-kept secrets,” the park features a promenade, sloping greenery, dog runs, a playground and the 18th-century Gracie Mansion, which is the Mayor’s official residence.
Did you know?
The Bentley Hotel is actually built in a former sky-rise office building.
The Bentley Hotel is near two acclaimed hospitals, Memorial Sloan-Kettering and New York Presbyterian, so the hotel is popular with those who are visiting friends and family at the hospitals.
The Bentley Hotel’s unique location, rising over the banks of the East River, makes it popular with tourists who like to be slightly off the beaten track, yet still within walking distance to Midtown. The hotel also appeals to business travelers, with its sleek style and boutique amenities.
