We enjoyed our stay at the Carvi. The staff was excellent--very friendly and very accommodating. Our room was very nice and modern. WE did have issues with the bathtub draining and they sent someone to fix it but to no avail. But a small problem in five lovely nights.

Strategically located between museums and theater districts. Nice CVX near by with groceries, "Dig-In" on 55th had outstanding food (tiny, may 6 places to sit) to carry out at great prices. Close to 1/2 price ticket booth (check on line too - you can do 1/2 Price from on line now). Hotel rooms were clean, water hot, all amenities nicely... More

Modern and confortable room, very well equipped, very helpful employees, very clean, great location. I could easily handle the temperature of the room, which was important for the cold weather, I had iron board, safe box, coffee machine, minibar. But probably if the concern in NY is often about cleaness, carpets and mattress were new. There are many restaurants in... More

The rooms in this hotel may be small, but they have a nice modern look and are furnished with everything that you need. The location is great, situated near several subway lines and within walking distance of Central Park and many other New York attractions. The staff are friendly and helpful, too.

We were delighted to find the Carvi Hotel, a Portugese brand that has a European flavor and flair. Our room, 701, was quite large by NYC standards. Wonderful bed with soft mattress and fine bedding. The front desk staff were quite friendly and helpful. All in all a very comfortable and satisfying stay at the Carvi and at an excellent... More

It's a lovely small hotel with really great staff. The location is perfect and is surrounded by expensive and inexpensive eateries. It is within walking distance to many places.

It was an expensive week for hotels in NYC, and this was relatively inexpensive. I had a room on a high floor (of seven) in the front. It is comfortable, but the closet might be too small for some people. Its location is excellent if you have business in this area, or just for walking or shopping on 57th Street.... More

I've been to many Hotels in NYC and since I've found the Carvi it has become my favourite. The location is great, although quiet, the rooms are small but very comfortable and the staff is very friendly. The hotel has the basic and important amenities, but is somewhat trendy, being perfect for a short stay. I'll be definitely coming back.

Stayed at Carvi Hotel a second time for a visit to MSK and was again very pleased with the hotel, the staff, the room cleanliness, and the overall experience. Will definitely stay again if in NYC. Great places to eat surrounding the hotel, easy to get to. Overall, the rooms are great size for NYC, comfortable, and quiet

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.
