I wanted to be close to the Rockefellar Center and I was. There are great places to eat including the hotel. Nice place on the 7th floor for drinks and dinner also with a good view of the tree. Free filtered water and bottles to take with you for the day. Free cappuccino in building next door if you dont... More

First off, the Jewel is not a posh, luxury hotel. We'd wanted one of those, but couldn't get the booking dates we needed. The Jewel had a few available rooms, the description and reviews were positive, and the location looked good, so we took a chance. We're so glad we did. The location was absolutely perfect, particularly for our plans.... More

Location, location, location. Loved it and hope to return. Iris and other staff so helpful. Beds need to be replaced, but can't beat the location for Rock Center. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here-treat to have bottled water on each floor.

My friend and I stayed here and we got a great deal through Expedia for flight and hotel. I think we may have stayed here soon after they first opened, but that's beside the point. We got to NYC a little earlier than expected and to the hotel about 2 hours before check in. Without hesitation, they allowed us to... More

Our stay was a fabulous experience. Staff was extremely kind, very friendly and helpful. They provided clear directions to destinations with subway and bus options making travel to outer boroughs for college visits a snap. You cannot ask for a better location from which to explore the city. Weekday breakfasts were in next building and they were great. Rooms are... More

This hotel is located in an excellent place, in front of Rockefeller and round the corner of 5th Ave. The rooms were nice and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay for a couple of days.

We traveled with 4 other couples to NYC and all stayed at the Jewel in October. The location is awesome! The staff was so helpful and took the time to print out directions to places we wanted to see. They offer water and refillable water bottles on every floor and that was a bonus to us, plus a little coffee/library... More

I echo the sentiments of the many reviewers that have stated "best price for the location" as staying across from Rockefeller Center smack dab in the middle of midtown puts you in excellent proximity to everything. Even though it was a little bit touristy, I enjoyed having breakfast watching the skaters on Rockefeller Center as they were putting up the... More

We spent one night in this small quite hotel that is right near Rockefeller Center. The room was on a smaller side but very modern and clean. Check in/out was very quick. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area.

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.
