Stayed for 5 nights. The hotel is functional rather than luxurious. Superb location in midtown within easy walk of Empire State, Grand Central and The Rock. Rooms were very clean, bathroom good although decor was a bit tired. Staff friendly and efficient. The main negative was the very noisy plumbing and heating. Free tea and coffer in lounge although they... More

As a partner in a small business, we are a lot more conscious of hotel spending vs. our old expense accounts. In NYC, it's hard to find a great place for a great price. Seton Hotel is my new great find! Totally updated....really comfortable. Wonderfully taken care of. Really friendly. Rooms are small, like most in NYC, but you don't... More

Our double room was very clean and perfect for the short stay that we wanted. The rooms are air conditioned and there is free wifi which is easy to connect to. Staff were friendly and welcoming all throughout the stay. One place to improve would be to say there is only one bathroom per floor between all of the guests... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 5 nights in mid Feb. First of all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, but would point out that hotel can be quite noisy at night, and the beds are rather small. The hotel is located on East 40th St, which is about a 5 minute walk to Grand Central station (quite... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in March 15 and found it to be perfect as a base for exploring new York, 2 Blocks from Grand Central Station, 15 minutes walk to Times Square and surrounded by eating places. My room was a bit dated, but very comfortable, and there is free coffee & tea available, and a good sized... More

We arrived at The Seton on Dec 31st. When we arrived, we became aware that there was a mix up in our booking, a communication error either by the hotel or our travel agent resulted in us turning up to the hotel 1 day later than we had booked. We had pre-paid for 5 nights accommodation at The Seton. After... More

leslee60, Owner at Seton Hotel, responded to this review

I apologize that management could not accommodate your request for a refund on the night you had to relocate . The so called "mix-up "occurred because you failed to show up on the 1st day of your reservation 1/30 and did not let us know that you would be arriving the following day instead. When a guest is a "no-show"... 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.
