This was my first stay in an element hotel. It was excellent from the time I checked in. The young woman at the desk was friendly, helpful & professional (as was all the staff). My room had a kitchenette with a fridge/freezer, 2 burner cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, dishes, etc. The shower was huge! Breakfast in the lounge was very good... More

wonderful break - easy location of hotel and with breakfast included - so early starts in morning for our chosen sights - which meant we beat the crowds and queues - would highly recommend as kitchenette in room (which we only used for drinks) but with a family would be really helpful

Just got back from an amazing time in New York. Hotel and staff were so helpful and made us feel so welcome from the moment we stepped in front door until we left. The hotel is so close to everything we wanted to see and do. It was so clean great idea with the complimentary breakfast and the snacks and... More

The location and value are very good. Unfortunately that leads to other problems. Breakfast is like the subway, with 200 of your closest friends. The elevators can be a bit of a wait. But it's a block from fun stuff and the price is right. I'd do it again.

Clean, roomy, well-equipped rooms. This hotel is always the same and that a plus, especially for a business traveler. Full size refrigerator, a stove, micro, some rooms have a couch (thanks SPG status!) Don't worry about the times square area -- this is 39th street, so you are removed from the noise/lights.

We just had 3 nights stay at Element Times Square West. The most important reasons that I choose this hotel are its great location and good amenities in room. Just 1 block from the subway and right in the Times Square area, it's very convenient to go around and explore the City. The room size is acceptable for standard size... More

My boyfriend and I travelled to NYC for my birthday in June and stayed at the Element Hotel. We won the trip through work, so I'm necessarily sure about the pricing, but the hotel was great. It was a fantastic location, stylish and very clean and had great customer service. We had a small issue at check in as our... More

I'll get straight to this - The Lifts - we stayed 5 nights and were only bothered by the lifts twice and it took an extra 120 seconds to get down to the ground floor. So not really a problem at all. The breakfast - Good selection, always got a seat. Sun - Thurs free beer/wine 5pm-7pm - was very... More

Stayed here for a few nights and it was so worth the money. The rooms were clean and stylish and the kitchen was superb and nothing like it in NYC. Also it's a block away from a subway which connects to major areas throughout the city. The staff was so friendly and the breakfast and the drinks and snacks in... 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.
