Having researched intensively the vast number of hotels available in NYC, I opted for the Carvi based on location and cost. To summarise the hotel was excellent with the staff going beyond what was required to ensure our stay was memorable. At check in we were greeted by Lucie who was extremely friendly and took the time to explain thoroughly... More

I'm actually afraid to rate this hotel because it's such a hidden gem, I wouldn't want to get shut out in the future because it gets too popular! I stayed there last night with my family of 4 -- a quick overnight to NYC. The Carvi is a tiny boutique hotel with a European feel in Midtown East, tucked mid-block... More

We have just returned from a 5 day stay in June 2015.

The Carvi is a boutique hotel located in Midtown East, NYC. The staff were very professional and courteous, and the room was comfortable and very clean each day. Of particular note is the 7th-floor outdoor lounge area, a feature not often seen in NYC hotels. The lack of unnecessary and pricey amenities makes the Carvi a cost-effective pleasure to stay...

We booked the Carvi through my Delta Sky miles Marketplace. We stayed here for 3 nights on our way back from Jamaica to Los Angles. The hotel is small with just a handful of rooms on each floor.

It's clean. Location is great (between Central Park and Times Square). Staff are nice. Good sized rooms for the price. Not a 5-star hotel, but a good find. Check out the noodle place down the street: Real Kung Fu Little Steamed Buns Ramen. My stomach is growling just remembering the great meals there!

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.
