This hotel has a terribly rude front desk clerk. He is a gentleman with an accent. His associate was nice enough until she tried to move my sister's luggage outside. Don't touch our things. I called three times to two days before we arrived and was disconnected twice until someone finally answered. Bad service. I feel verbally assaulted for disagreeing... More

This charming hotel and its staff put a silver lining to our honeymoon/10th anniversary in NYC. The room was small, but adequate and there was ample room for storage. The bed was one of the best hotel beds we have ever slept in – almost like home. Bathroom amenities were of good quality and supply. We had worried about bugs... More

Thank you so much for your glowing review. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't like our tea bags. We use Lipton which is considered a reasonably good brand in many restaurants. I too am not a fan of Lipton tea. I wish I had known. I would have been happy to share my private stash of Mighty Leaf green... More

Location, comfortable beds, great staff. The Seton Hotel keeps it simple. The location is great, near Grand Central Station and very close for buses as well. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean with ample supplies of towels, very good water pressure, we had a bathtub as well. Our room was quiet and helped by the air conditioner which... More

The hotel is located at a great location - about 15 minutes walk to Times Square, 5 minutes walk to the Grand Central station (subway), NY Public Library and Bryant park. Large and cheap convenience store nearby (CVS - 42nd and 3rd av.) There's no breakfast, but two great places just around the block - "Bagel Express" and "Pret a... More

We had a very good experience at the Seton. First and foremost it was spotlessly clean from the public areas to our room and bathroom. That is always number one on my list of requirements and the Seton is 5 star in that area.The staff was great, always smiling. Freddie in particular went out of his way to speak with... More

I selected this hotel due to its reasonable price, perfect location and quiet surroundings. Everyday you are greeted by nice concierges and get free coffee and tea. Very fast free Internet available throughout the building!

Definately stay here... More

I apologize for not getting back to you personally on the final day of your stay. I had my front desk manager handle the call back for me . However I did spend a considerable amount of time that day figuring out what happened to cause your early departure. We have no record of you reporting a bathroom lock that... More

Visited in the beginning of September with my boyfriend. Location was good. Staff was helpful and friendly. The room was clean and quiet. Bed was comfy and the bathroom was modern and nice. Besides that staff helped us out with a taxi to the airport and getting suitcases from lounge area to the taxi. The reason why I rate this... More
