This hotel is right by Grand Central so you can get the Green Line subway to uptown and downtown at easily. There are lots of great places for breakfast close by. The rooms are somewhat small, but very comfortable and the baths are new and clean. The staff is very friendly.

Pros - where to start? Such lovely, helpful staff who couldn't do enough to help you whether printing tickets or recommending places to eat/visit, amazing location in walking distance to everything you need, lovely room, peaceful, great maid service. Cons - nothing. I can't think of anything negative to say about this place! We visited last year for our honeymoon... More

The location of this hotel is great, but I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet the room was. Most NYC hotels are noisy, but room 406 (where I stayed) was so quiet, and I slept extremely well. The hotel itself has a nice sitting area, and the rooms are perfectly nice and clean.

We had an issue with our room during the booking process. I was confused about how many beds were in our room. When I went down to the front desk the amazing concierge found my friends a room with a bath for the same price we had paid for our other room (which did not have a bath attached)! Amazing.... More

Stayed one night in a single room with shared bathroom down the hall. The room had all the basics you need including a sink, aircon, alarm. The reception staff are very helpful with local recommendations. Excellent location - close to central station.

A clean, tidy and newly refurbished hotel. We weren't sure about sharing a bathroom but decided we needed to save money! The shared bathroom was fine, always clean. The room was tiny but I guess that's what you can expect in New York! Overall, we were happy with our stay.

Myself and a friend stayed here in January. The hotel was clean and very accommodating! Nice large shower which was a bonus! About a 2 minute walk from Grand Central Station! Brilliant place to stay for people who want a clean and friendly hotel in the midtown location with a very affordable price! Go to Scottys diner on Lexington avenue... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in May. It is a great location - close to Grand Central Station and lots of restaurants (including a burger place next door). The staff were helpful. The room was small but clean, quiet and comfortable. The WiFi was slow. I suspect this is the standard for midtown hotel.

Stayed for a total of 5 nights but with a break in the middle. 2 nights were spent in one of their larger rooms with two queen sized beds. It was expensive but huge by New York standards but not really value for money as were only 2 people. The other 3 nights were in a smaller (much smaller) room... 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.
