We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. I would say it was perfectly located to all the sights, central park, rockafeller center and 5th Avenue shops. Subway located on 53rd not too much of a walk away. The staff are very attentive. Room was very comfortable, beautiful bathroom, fluffy towels and the most luxurious bedding I have... More

We stayed for 5 nights and had such an amazing time. The location is excellent, only 3 blocks from central park. The staff was very kind, professional and helpful, always trying to make us feel comfortable. Even when our flight was delayed for a couple of hours, they offered us the spa facilities for the waiting time. We went to... More

We had a great time, felt very secure and cared for in this hotel. The location is amazing across from the St. Regis my other favorite hotel. This hotel does have a better rooftop bar that they were accommodating to their guests getting seats for them almost immediately on a busy Friday night. The rooms were nicely appointed with plenty...

My stay was in February, and was nothing short of perfection from beginning to end. Everyone I encountered was lovely, professional and accommodating. I even wound up having to stay an extra night due to cancelled flights, and I couldn't have been happier about it.

Hotel staff are very polite and are the professional individuals I've ever come across. Had a slight issue with our room but had an immediate upgrade in rooms to compensate for the inconvenience. Hotel is v. expensive but not overpriced; you get what you pay for! 23 floor Gym exceptional with jaw dropping views of Manhattan. Would strongly recommend.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
