Looking for a discreet, quiet location in mid-town, with stylish, comfortable rooms at an outstanding value? Check out and check in to the Carvi Hotel at 152 East 55th Street. On a recent solo business trip, the Carvi provided all the basics and luxuries that I needed to rest and work. I requested, and received, a room with a lot... More

On our most recent trip to NY we booked the Carvi hotel and were extremely pleased with everything about it. The location was just what we wanted, only 2 blocks from the nearest subway which made getting around very easy. The hotel is small by NY standards, probably about 25 rooms but the staff were very welcoming and friendly and... More

Stayed for 3 nights, spacious (for NY standards) 7th floor room with direct view to balcony and outside (the window room is by the balcony, so someone there may view inside). The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is small (about 3 rooms per floor), well located, and the staff friendly. My only complaints were the noise coming from the... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Carvi because it was a very clean and updated. I stayed for 8 days. The room had a very comfortable bed, appeared to be very new (carpet, paint, and furnishing) and had a excellent a/c and flat screen TV. The portable fridge and coffee maker were a nice touch. The washroom was good,... More

Stayed in the hotel for a week and had a great time. The rooms are in good size, the shower is nice and very clean, the staff is wonderful and very helpfull. It would have been nicer to have more lights in the room - they only have one light and the room is kinda dark.

A small and new hotel. Very clean. The bed, as other people said here, was really comfortable. Shower was also great. Staff was always helpful with us. I also enjoyed the fact that they didn't charge for the crib -- in other hotels I was charged 20 USD each night. Location was perfect. There's no breakfast, just a cafeteria across... More

55th & Lex is a great location...only short walk to 5th Avenue stores and Bloomingdales. We used an Internet booking service and got a better price than what was offered on the hotel's website...under $160/night for a double. Our room was on the fourth floor facing 55th Street and amazingly quiet for central New York City. Slept through the night... More

I arrived in NY with my friend for a birthday party and we were unsure of what to expect from Carvi because it is so new. Needless to say the beds were unbelievable! I have never been in a bed more comfortable in my entire life. The rooms were very clean and tidy and the staff was very helpful. I... More

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.
