Firstly my partner and I would love to thank the staff of the seton, especially the manager (sorry forgot name but had Irish accent) he couldn't do enough for us. We stayed at the seton in early April and although we had some issues with getting the right room at the start it was made up for by the manager... More

So I visited NYC with my girlfriend at the end of March and without having done any particular research we chose to stay in the Seton Hotel. We stayed there for 7 nights in a Double Room with a Shared Bathroom and we literally could not have been more satisfied with the Hotel. Our room was very well decorated and... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed in the Seton Hotel for 10 nights. The minute we walked in, the staff welcomed us with open arms and ran us through the Hotel policies i.e Checking out times, room-keeping hours and the fact we had to drop the room key in at reception before we left the hotel. Now dropping the room key... More

The Seton Hotel is a jewel of a small hotel just perfect for a few nights or more. I had to go to NY from Miami for a couple of nights and its great location on 40th Street made for easy navigation to downtown. Also, restaurants are close by. This hotel has been recently renovated and they did a very... More

If you are visiting New York and seek a unique central location this is the place, you can walk everywhere from there and you are so centrally located that it is Irresistible Indeed ! If you have mega bucks and can afford The Pierre that is different. The crux of this is that I the visitor can remain central to... More

Just back from an amazing stay in NYC and the Seton hotel did not disappoint! Was slightly worried because our room was right next to public bathroom and apart from a few ignorant, drunk and noisy guests we slept very well! Beds were slightly smaller than the average British bed, but that's been picky! Staff, especially the gorgeous Emmanuel, were... More

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at The Seton. We had a pleasant check-in and an explanation of the free coffee and wi-fi. The room was small but comfortable, with en suite bathroom. As we have never been to NYC before, it is difficult to compare hotel rooms, but this one was fine. Each day we seemed to get fresh... More

The location for this hotel is perfect. Walking distance to Grand Central station and just over 10 minutes to Times Square. I had a double bed private bathroom which was very clean and plenty of room. Staff were helpful whenever we asked them a question. The rooms don't have a safe but I believe they have security boxes behind reception.... More

We had a room without bathroom which I was nervous about I needn't have been! The bathroom was extremely clean all of the time and we didn't encounter anyone else trying to use it at the same time!! We paid half of what other NYC hotels ask for per night and believe we found a diamond! The hotel is so... More
