When I got the room I was extremely nervous about the shared bathrooms. I was pleasantly blown away by cleanliness of the bathrooms and my husband and I didn't have to wait once over our five day trip. The room was basic, mirror, chair, sink (which is great so you don't have to leave the room for brushing teeth, washing... More

This hotel is what it is. It is a room with a bed, sink, mirror. The room and shared bathroom were super clean. This is a hotel you use for price and location! It is great for both. If you are looking for posh and lots of time in a hotel room, then look elsewhere. This is just a nice,... More

We stayed here for 4 days, and were very satisfied. The staff was friendly and helpful, room was comfortable,clean and with plenty of space for New York standard. The room had everything we needed just like the (shared) bathrooms which at first we were a little nervous about but we didn't have to wait a single time to use it... More

It was our first and exciting trip to NYC. My daughter and I wanted to spend New Year in Times Square NYC. Everything was fine until we arrived at the hotel room and discovered there are only shared bathrooms :( which is very uncomfortable. We tried to cancel our hotel reservation and they will not give us any reimbursement. Then,... More

It was our first trip to NYC. We were going for two weeks, and two weeks in NYC does stretch your budget. We had to decide early on with comfort vs location, and quickly settled that we do really want to stay in Midtown with much of the sightings reachable on feet. So we ended up with Americana Inn.

i needed a cheap hotel near Penn Station for one night. It turned out to be not cheap in comparison with other hotels. I was amazed that I did not have a bathroom. The room was like a prison cell. The bed was hard and uncomfortable. It was noisy. There was nothing good about this hotel. The best part of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
