Travel Blogs from New York City


A travel blog entry by theriverstyx


Today, we decided to go to Brooklyn and cross the Brooklyn Bridge. I've always wanted to do that. Oh, I had an amazing hot dog there. It was so good. I wish we had some in Texas. Well, we go back in the morning.

Back in US

A travel blog entry by theriverstyx


It is our first day back in the USA. We are still 1,627 miles away from home. It is a really big city. We rented a car for the three days because you need a car to go any where in New York City. Today, since it was getting towards the end of the day when we arrived, we decide to just go to the hotel. We will drive around tomorrow.

Lion King

A travel blog entry by theriverstyx


Today, we drove around the city a little to see what it is like to live in NYC. It is a very busy place. We managed to buy tickets to see the Lion King tonight on Broadway. The play was amazing. The costumes were amazing, the special effects fantastic, and the sound was so clear. I would like to see it again someday with my family later in life.

The Big Apple

Hey everyone,

Here is the next part to our journey which finds us in lovely New York City. Firstly on the flight in it was spectacular flying over New York by air and seeing how big it really is.

Once we settled into our accommodation Case and I set out to visit Times Square. From our place it was only a 10min walk. It was …

New York, New York

A travel blog entry by 72kelly


New York City On Thursday morning we ventured out & had breakfast followed by a bit of exploring to get our bearings. We walked to the Rockefeller Centre to buy our New York passes (a great idea if you're there for a few days) and proceeded to the "Top of the Rock". A fast elevator ride saw us again on top of a tall building. The visibility …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bedford Hotel New York City

    Walls are very thin


    The hotel is in the quiet part of town, so there were no street noises to be heard in the room. Had a view of a brick wall, but still got light into the room, plus we didn't spend much time in the room. Hotel staff was kind. The room was smaller than the measurements I had read about. It seemed to be clean except the stain on the bedspread. While taking a shower, the water temp. was affected by other people using their water (i.e. flushing of toilets and other people taking showers).

    Do Not Stay Here


    Do not use this hotel. Items were taken from my room by staff prior to my checkout. No night manager after 7pm - only a disinterested front desk clerk. If you have any issues like the one referenced above, you have to wait until morning - even if you must leave for the airport prior to the day manager arriving. So much for a good night's sleep! I travel a lot and this ranks as one of my worst travel experiences.

    Bedford was excellent value


    My son, daughter and myself (all adults) stayed at the Bedford 12th til 16th January this year, I can thoroughly recommend this hotel, the location is excellent, right around the corner from Grand Central, rooms, (we had a 1 bedroom suite )are very spacious and clean, a bit old fashioned but the hotel is that style. Staff were helpful and we allso had a great view of the Empire State building, we are going back to NY in August and will definately stay at the Bedford again.

    Not brilliant at Christmas


    the hotel was clean and did the job. we have just spent the last christmas there with two children. a small cristmas tree was present but no spirit at all. the bar and rest'nt closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day no explanation from anybody. Very poor also they had no cash to change traveller cheques. Do not spent Christmas here if you have children



    My buddy and i have used this hotel twice now on our infamous trips to nyc. We wanted somewhere with easy access to al the hot spots, tourist sites etc. This hotel fitted the bill to a tea.

    The place to stay on a budget in NY


    Just returned from a week's stay at the Bedford. We (4 adults) stayed in a tower suite. Was spacious, so that we were not stumbling over each other. The sofa sleeper is like other sleepers, not as comfortable as a bed. Very quiet--we never heard any sounds from the hall. Exactly as described in the other reviews. The staff was very accommodating and friendly--immediate response to requests. Be sure to explore Grand Central Station upon arrival, as there is an excellent market to purchase food for the room. We normally ate our evening meal there, while getting ready for Broadway. Cabs are very scarce so we appreciated being able to walk, use the subway, or bus with ease from the hotel. C. Nelson

    Excellent location


    Gave this hotel 5/5 for its location.Yes,it needs updating but it is situated in a fantastic location.90 secs from Grand Central station and 60 secs from the New York Airport Service bus stop that has return fares to JFK for $23...much better than a taxi.Staff very friendly and in a very safe area.As far as prices go,its cheap.We had avery spacious 1 bed suite.If you want luxury,go somewhere else.If you want excellent location and valu for money,choose the Bedford!

    Bedford - good value for money


    Thought this hotel was great for the price - we booked through ebookers. We thought there was a free breakfast but there wasn't. Rooms were quite large for new york, plumping was quite noisy at times but the toilet was a very efficient flusher. Good location near Times Sqaure and Grand central station. Overall we were happy with the choice Catherine

    Good value


    My friend and I found and booked the Bedford Hotel through ebookers... although there was some initial confusion at first, which was quite aggravating, this was more down to ebookers and not the hotel. Upon arrival, the Hotel is quite smart and chic and the concierge (?) are very pleasant and helpful. The room on first impressions was a bit of a let down, but we got used to it. The beds were comfortable and the room and en-suite were clean.There seemed to be a bit of a problem with the plumbing in that the water temperature changed erraticly and couldn't be controlled... one second I was being scalded by very hot water, the next I was being frozen. The room overall could do with a bit of redecoration and was a little noisy at times, but we felt that the service provided was good for the money... but I cannot promise I would stay there again.Overall I think it was good value and in a very good location of the city centre - a few blocks from Times Square and the Empire State Building and about 3 minutes walk to Grand Central Station.

    Good place to stay


    On a trip to Broadway stayed at the Bedford. This hotel is a great little secret right in the center of everything that is going on in New York. I recommended the hotel to a great many friends at home, and will use their services again in the future. Thank you so much!
