Me and my partner stayed here for 8 nights December 2014- Jan 2015 and I cannot praise the hotel enough. It was beautifully decorated, always clean and the staff were fantastic. Really helpful and friendly. Our baggage was delayed and they helped us with advising about nearby stores where we could get toiletries and provided us with extra complimentary ones... More

First time in NY with my mother, visited during december 2014, we were looking for hotels with affordable price and, hopefully, a good service. Seton Hotel surprised us much, starting with the amazing decoration of the place. Only three blocks away from 5th Av. includes working wi-fi, tv, private bathroom and free tea and coffee. Everything was always neat and... More

We stayed there in December 2014 and found the staff very friendly and the hotel very central, walking distance from Times Square etc. We were anxious about reviews of hotels having small bedrooms...we found they were small but still very adequate. We had loads of room for shopping bags (so many bags!!!!) aswell as our caress over had no complaints... More

My son, niece, sister-in-law and myself stayed at this hotel at the end November (21st-24th) for 3 nights. Booked through Travel Republic at a bargain price after reading great reviews. We grabbed the Newark Express bus (nice and cheap) which dropped us off at Grand Central Terminal, right around the corner! Five minutes later after a very quick, friendly check-in... More

A festive trip to New York with my mam. Really had a great time. Had a mix up with the room and the staff really went the extra mile to help us with something that wasn't their fault. Make sure you know if the room is shared or private bathroom. Rooms are small. Beds are small if sharing, especially if... More

I was happy to hear that your stay at the Seton Hotel worked out well. In the future if you do not want to share a bed with the person in your room we have rooms with 2 separate beds that might be a better solution for you. More

We stayed for 6 nights - Our room (612) was comfortable, spotlessly clean with a great view. We shared a bathroom which we were slightly concerned about before we arrived but it was absolutely fine, again it was spotless and we never had to wait to use it. The staff were excellent and really efficient. The location is brilliant with... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
