I stayed at Seton Hotel for two nights in July 2014. The hotel is centrally located within a 3 minute walk from the airport express buses, and 5 minutes from Grand Central Station. The staff was kind and helpful, and the whole hotel has a high standard for that price. Room is not large, but has the basics including toiletries... More

It was our fist trip to New York my girlfriend and me. We chose the Seton Hotel due to its high ratings on tripadvisor despite its budget-friendly prices. We were more than pleased. The hotel is a few blocks away from Grand Central, were all the subway and train lines stop, so you an basically go to anywhere from there.... More

This hotel is a charming place in a very convenient location. Everything is within an easy walking distance. Grand Central Terminal is around the corner. The shared bathroom was not a problem at all. I was a little skeptical but we never had to wait. We did take out showers at night so we wouldn't have to wait in the... More

Have just spent three nights at the seton, really enjoyed our stay, really good location, helpful friendly staff, very clean rooms, it was refreshing to stay at a hotel that doesn't look like all the others in terms of decor. We stayed in a two bed room, it was very clean, decent size for NY nicely decorated and comfortable (really... More

We came to this hotel not knowing what to expect as we weren't sure of how the 'shared bathroom' system would go, but we were pleasantly surprised. Not once did we have to wait to use it and the hotel was clean, easy access and our room was a little small, however enough for us as we were only going... More

My partner and two friends and I stayed at the Seton Hotel on a weekend trip to see three Broadway musicals. The hotel is lovely and is situated in an excellent location right near Grand Central Station, Times Square and the Broadway theatres. Even though the hotel is close to all of these places it is on a quiet street... More

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights on February. It was ok for the price I paid in that area, a great location, with just a 5 minute walk from grand central station. The staff were friendly and the free wifi was so helpful. The room isn't that big but ok for 2 luggage. Bathroom was clean, too. Highly... More

The hotel is within walking distance (10 min) of major areas such as Times Square, Empire State Building and 5th Avenue. Our room was cozy and had... More

Several friends of mine and I stayed at the Seton for four nights very recently. It's in a great midtown location very close to the Grand Central terminal, making subway and train access (and thus access to most of the rest of the city) a breeze. The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean, modern,... More
