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

My wife and I stayed here in mid July 2014 for 5 nights. We selected the hotel from previous Trip Advisor reviews, location and price and we were not disappointed in any way. The rooms are small, as you would expect in any City location. The housekeeping cannot be faulted. The staff are both friendly and helpful and nothing was... More

I stayed at Seton Hotel for two nights in July 2014. The hotel is centrally located within a 3 minute walk from the airport express buses, and 5 minutes from Grand Central Station. The staff was kind and helpful, and the whole hotel has a high standard for that price. Room is not large, but has the basics including toiletries... More

It was our fist trip to New York my girlfriend and me. We chose the Seton Hotel due to its high ratings on tripadvisor despite its budget-friendly prices. We were more than pleased. The hotel is a few blocks away from Grand Central, were all the subway and train lines stop, so you an basically go to anywhere from there.... More
