This is the second time I have stayed here. Once for 4 nights back in 2008 and my husband and I stayed here for 5 nights this past week while in NYC on vacation. Not much has changed at all in the past 8 years. The plus points are the location. It's just a short walk to Grand Central where... More

First time to NYC and LAST time at this hotel. Having stayed several times at the Hale Koa Hotel in Hawaii and the Marines Memorial Hotel in SF I expected this military hotel to be over the top being in NYC. Great website looks nothing like the room we stayed in very low rent. Use to being on an adventure... More

You pay so much less to stay here, than anywhere in NYC! you may have to climb a few flights of stairs and share a bathroom, but they give you free bagels so it evens out. Pretty good location, walk through fashion district to get to Times Square or Broadway. Close to Central Station. Staye with kids, and will return.

First: bring a hair dryer if you want to use one! The write up about this club says hair dryers are available for a $10 deposit, however, Not One was available this past weekend. But since I got past my bad hair day, I have to agree that the experience was quite enjoyable. This is more like living in someone's... More

Just got back from our first trip to New York. This was our 2nd anniversary trip and we were so thankful to find such a great place to stay for such a great price! We stayed two nights and not one complaint! Very clean, cozy room and facilities were well kept. Bathroom close by and showers just one floor up.... More

I am so glad we found this place! Super affordable. Clean. Friendly staff. A bit like being back in college with the public bathroom and shower, but it was very secure and for the price, I can't complain. I loved just looking around the old building at the pictures. Great experience!

If, this military facility wasn't available, we probably wouldn't be able to afford to stay in NYC. This is a beautiful, old building on Lexington Ave. The location is great. The facility is very clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. My husband and I, booked the "VIP" room, which is a queen bed and shared bath and showers. To... More

First let’s be clear this is NOT the Park Plaza. The rooms are small, usually twin beds and shared bathrooms. You’re in the heart of Mid town with a room that is like $65 bucks’. I have stayed here a number of times both in winter and summer. The last time was about 2 or 3 years back. We went... More

We've stayed here a few times only because the price is right and it's in a great location - a short walk to Grand Central. The employees are very rude/the service is slow but I have gotten used to it and just understand that you get what you pay for. The bathrooms are fairly clean. The rooms are dark and... More

Stayed there recently month for the eighth time, and, once again, got exactly what I bargained for. I have a hard time reading "terrible" reviews for this place. Wake up, folks! You're paying ridiculously low rates for a place in the heart of Manhattan!! I've always found it clean and never had a problem with anything. Yeah, they aren't great... 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.
