Mid-priced Uptown Lodging
Posted Feb 3, 2017
The Bellclaire hotel is a decent, modest, clean hotel at 77th Street and Broadway. It's convenient to the Subway and West Side attractions, notably the Natural History museum. The rooms are small but adequate and are reasonably up to date. No restaurant, but an adequate breakfast bar in the lobby, featuring newspapers, coffee, tea and pastries in the morning (breakfast is not included in the room rate). A few blocks from Central Park. The breakfast bar morphs into an adequate regular bar later in the day. Perhaps since the building itself is vintage, the rooms are quieter than we expected. The Bellclaire is probably not a particularly good choice for a long stay, but adequate for a few days.
