I have visited Manhattan a number of times over the last 20 years and have always stayed in Midtown. This year we fancied a change. We picked the Be Hotel mainly because of it's ratings on Trip Advisor & because it was in an area of Manhattan that we did not know very well.
We were greeted upon arrival by the Manager and although we were a bit earlier than check in should be, we were delighted to find out that our room was ready.
Our room was on the 6th floor overlooking the Manhattan Bridge & was a good size for a New York Hotel (some are more akin to postage stamps...). The bed was huge, there was also a desk with a big TV, a small wardrobe, a folding stand for unpacking your suitcase (most useful) and, most surprising of all in a Manhattan bathroom, a small but perfectly formed bath! (Perfect for soaking sore legs after walking miles & miles around the city!) I hadn't been able to find details on their website about the provision of hairdryers so had taken my travel hairdryer with me, but was delighted to find there was a dryer provided - and it had a flex long enough to reach the full length mirror in the wardrobe.
This is a small hotel by new York standards - only 6 stories high. You have to be prepared for some road noise - Manhattan is after all the 'city that never sleeps'. For us this was all part of the experience of visiting Manhattan - especially as a fire station is located a few blocks away! We slept well every night as we packed a lot in to our days!
