We were there for overnight stay, LOVED the great food, service and the room was perfect - and most convenient location! Easily see it all here from mid-town, NYC. Most elegant dining, service & stay in an elegant townhouse in convenient mid-town!

The Box Tree is sort of a stage set. It looks great in photographs, but in reality it's a cheap imitation...lots of paint and spit and make-do cover-ups. But more importantly is considering how one would get out of there if there were a fire. The restaurant food is superb, so there's no problem there. Expensive, but worth it. I... More

My husband and I stayed at the Box Tree in June after returning from our honeymoon. We booked the room on expedia for about $200. When we arrived at the hotel, the people at the restaurant carried our bags in the room. We stayed in room # 3, the Egyptian room. It was beautifully decorated and had a fireplace, a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2004. The room was comfortable, bathroom tiny, had a great shower and plenty of hot water. Enjoyed the fact that it gave the feeling of staying in a New York neighborhood and it was very quiet. Disappointed in the advertised "complimentary breakfast delivered daily to guestrooms" ...this consisted of a coffee maker... More

My friends stayed at the hotel in May 2004. The windows couldnt open and it was in front of a wall.!!! the room was dark like in a cave.

The Box Tree was a perfect place to stay for a romantic weekend in New York. The fact that each room is decorated in a particular style makes it special. Absolutely exquisite. Breakfast was served in our room in the morning, with a fire burning in the fireplace and a rose on the table. We will never forget it.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
