Stayed for 5 nights at the Seton Hotel recently and it made an ideal base for our NYC trip. It is well located for the subway to take you on longer trips up or down town, and we also went a lot of places on foot. Midtown is maybe not the most exciting neighbourhood but there are still a few... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent a week at the Seton Hotel and had a fabulous holiday. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and are a credit to the hotel. The décor of the hotel is nice; I believe it was recently done up so most things are in good condition. The reception area, communal lounge and hallways are... More

So I visited NYC with my girlfriend at the end of March and without having done any particular research we chose to stay in the Seton Hotel. We stayed there for 7 nights in a Double Room with a Shared Bathroom and we literally could not have been more satisfied with the Hotel. Our room was very well decorated and... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed in the Seton Hotel for 10 nights. The minute we walked in, the staff welcomed us with open arms and ran us through the Hotel policies i.e Checking out times, room-keeping hours and the fact we had to drop the room key in at reception before we left the hotel. Now dropping the room key... More

The Seton Hotel is a jewel of a small hotel just perfect for a few nights or more. I had to go to NY from Miami for a couple of nights and its great location on 40th Street made for easy navigation to downtown. Also, restaurants are close by. This hotel has been recently renovated and they did a very... More
