The room was smallish; however, very clean and comfortable. The hotel had a very interesting decor; and the elevator was like taking a trip through time. I would definitely never hesitate to stay at The Seton Hotel again. Great experience; and, again, SEAN was so helpful and patient!

A Perfect location (Close to everything and at the same time quiet), friendly and helpful staff, clean and nice rooms with A very nice atmosphere. Aircondition a little too Close to one of the twin beds, that's the only negative thing to say.

We moved to the Seton from another hotel in NYC and stayed for 1 week. This small hotel is tastefully decorated, quiet, very clean and well located. Manager Brittany and her staff were very pleasant and helpful. There is a lovely guest lounge and a small courtyard out back where we had drinks at the end of a couple of... More

On our arrival at the Seaton Hotel we were greeted by the bubbly, professional and funny Brittany who made us feel welcome immediately. She explained what the hotel had to offer and offered us advise on what to see and do in NYC. The hotel does not offer a bar or breakfast but there is an excellent pub 3 doors... More

Lovely centralized location! Easy walking distance to bus, train, Times Square, Madison Square Garden. A variety of restaurants and bars near by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as well as, the friendly and helpful staff! When booking I was asked if I wanted a private or shared bathroom. Upon check-in we were given the run down of amenities, as well... More

Very satisfied with this hotel. I was looking for value without given away too much comfort and that's what we got. Service desk folks were great. Not always knowledgeable but they did their best to help and even ran internet search for us. We selected the economy option which is a shared bathroom. I wasn't sure about that but it... More

I just paid $250 a night to stay in a room without a bathroom or a shower. Do I really need to say more? Just in case, I will. I don't expect to have to check if I am booking a room with a "shared shower" when I am paying $1,000 for 4 nights. If you somehow have the audacity... More

It was my wife's first time in the states and we came to New York for an early 5th wedding anniversary and main summer holiday. From arrival to departure the staff at the hotel couldn't do enough for us. Brittany especially was always helpful and pointing out ways to save us money and recommend restaurants. When it came to checking... More

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.
