The Seton Hotel was the perfect spot for our quick NYC trip. We selected the Seton for its value and location and would definitely return. The front desk staff, Da'ryl and Maurice were so incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are small, but very clean with good showers and beds. There are plenty of great restaurants nearby and its a... More

We stayed in this hotel in October, four friends travelling from Scotland and Belgium. Every aspect of our stay was perfect. The rooms well thought out and spotlessly clean. I am amazed by some of the reviews I have read here, the one complaining that there were was no film choices flabbergasted me. Who goes to New York to sit... More

This Hotel is well located within easy reach of most tourist places. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but had everything you need. Free internet & coffee, house keeping was good, but what would make me come back was the service. Darlyn was tops when it came to making you feel welcomed, she went above what you... More

What a great hotel in mid town Manhattan. It was my first visit to NYC from the UK and I really shopped around for a hotel and found it really hard to choose. I'm so pleased I went for this hotel. Nothing was a problem and I was made to feel so welcome. The hotel reception was always manned. There... More

Got relatively good deal on this hotel (245 USD/night). Hotel is completely renovated and looked clean and fresh. Room interior was chic and bold at the same time, I liked it. Room size seemed ok for NY standards. Bathroom clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well. Complementary coffee and tea all day in the lobby. Staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

The location in Mid Town is indeed very good. The hotel staff are very nice and always available. The rooms are just average, they're not big, but are very clean. It´s a good HQ to explore NY's Mid Town

I have just completed a three-night stay at the Seton Hotel in Manhattan and what a pleasant experience it was. From the moment I arrived at the hotel to the time I checked out, the hotel staff was very courteous and extremely helpful. The room (with a shared bath) was of an adequate size and very clean. I had been... More

Stayed at the Seton hotel for 2 nights. Staff are friendly and helpful, room was small with a small double bed as expected. Bathroom was modern with a good shower/pressure. Heating in the room was quite poor, air con unit was cool only and heat was via some central heating system. The lift is very old and slow and more... More

We wanted an inexpensive hotel for one night in New York before travelling north to visit friends and it was a last minute booking. We booked a double room with shared bathroom but were upgraded to private bathroom. The room was small but adequate, since we only wanted somewhere to sleep after a long flight. The staff were friendly and... More

We blindly booked into this hotel by way of a package deal offered by Southwest Airlines. Not having ever seen it, and having read some negative reviews about it after our non refundable booking, we had a bit of trepidation about the property. But our fears were unfounded. It's a perfectly comfortable boutique hotel, recently tastefully renovated, and it's very... More
