My husband and I booked a week-long stay at the Seton for mid-September, then suffered a major setback when hubby fell 15 foot off a ladder and broke a vertebra in his lower back, necessitating major surgery. What does this have to do with the Seton Hotel? Well, being medically unfit to travel, my husband was daunted by the prospect... More

Picked this hotel for the first part of our honeymoon due to the great reviews and the location. We were not disappointed. Everything from checking in to checking out was just perfect. The staff were always very friendly and going out of their way to be helpful. The free tea/coffee was great. The location was perfect, a short walk to... More

Whenever I go to NY on business, I try to stay near Grand Central as I always need to either get on Metro North or go out to Queens. I found Seton Hotel for my last trip and booked it because it is in a perfect location for me, and I was not really fond of Pod 39, which is... More

My wife and I stayed here with two friends, and having booked from Australia we were not sure what to expect when travelling on a budget. We were very pleasantly surprised , particularly by the location , close to Grand Central Station and walking distance to Bryant Park and Times Square. The best feature of this hotel was the staff,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel in July 2014 with my Mum, Dad and Sister. This is a great place to stay if you are going to New York for the sights and the shopping. From the moment you enter The Seton you are immediately greeted by the fantastic and polite staff there, who were very helpful and made you... More

Good hotel. Very noisy on the street side. Wifi keeps hanging in certain rooms. Gothic room on 6th floor is too dark. Lobby/reception are not the most friendly. Well half of them are and half of them are unfriendly that is just unproffesional. Memo to those: people!...your job is to provide service. Location is great and its one of the... More

It,s impossible to add to the comments already posted on this site about how good this hotel is.From the moment you enter the Seton you are treated like family,nothing is too much trouble for them and it would be unfair to single out any single member of staff because they are all amazing.We only stayed for three nights but will...

Walking through the door and being greeted by Emanuel was the beginning of a very pleasant stay. This is a small, personal hotel with spacious and very clean rooms, a guest lounge and a separate vending area to get coffee etc. on a quite street. I have traveled extensively for the past 17 years spending at least 3 nights a... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for 4 nights recently and were extremely impressed with this hotel! It is in a great location right near Grand Central station and is very clean with lovely staff and frequent maid services. We stayed in one of the rooms with a shared bathroom and I was initially apprehensive about this but quickly found... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. Experienced both shared toilet facilities and private en suite. Excellent guest service, attentive and efficient from check in to check out. Not to mention the Housekeeping team! As a kiwi living in Australia working in hospitality, the Aussies could learn a thing or two. I mistakenly unknowingly booked a room with shared toilet facilities,... More
