Individual guest reviews

  • Location and great price, its near Grand Central Station. Times square in may and small lobby. The staff were very helpful, rooms were spacious.

    The decor is fine; i was worried would be depressing and suites do not live up to photo expectation.

  • The location is excellent, position very close to most of the places to see/ and staff could only make a little better. Bathroom is clean and great restaurants around every corner in 4 directions.

    Fitness centre in different hotel and to sum up we would have no hesitation to go back to the bedford and recomend to anyone. The furniture is outdated.

  • Location is the best, just a few minutes by foot to Grand Central Station and hotel is accessible to nearby tourist spots. Therefore a great view on the top of the Empire State Building, the lobby is nice and comfortable, the staff are all very friendly and helpful nothings to much trouble also booked trips. A big water spot on the ceiling , and 2, lots of good resaurants and bars close by, value for money make the Bedford a reasonable choice.

    Decor a little dated, price is high and the reception is very small. Tv didnt work properly.

  • Location and courteous staff, one block from Grand Central Station, tower suites were nice and large. Bedford hotel was fine and price was reasonable in NYC terms. The room was beautiful and the small kitchenette was convenient. Towels were clean and changed every day.

    The decor was dated, beds were too hard.

    The suite has only 1 tv , and the hotel has the old fashion air conditioners that are in the window, the rooms need updating and are uninviting.
