The Gotham Hotel charged me $45 for a bottle of wine that I purchased at a local liquor store and brought to my room. Their housekeeping staff claimed I took it from the mini bar. I have left four messages with the manager, but no one has returned my call. This is an unbelievable scam! Do not stay here.

This hotel doesn't deserve a star. Terrible customer service, cancelled a reservation with them over the phone and weeks later they still charged me for a stay I never came for! Make sure they give you a cancel reference over the phone, cancellation confirm through email, and document every call otherwise they will completely rip you off!

I found this hotel on a discount website that revealled the name after purchase. What a nice surprise! Located within walking distance of broadway, 5th Ave, Grand Central, yet on a quiet block. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. We had a rear facing room that was so quiet we slept long past our usual wake up time. Decor is basic... More

Cleanliness and Rooms are great, Great Staff, I did get a big deal on February so it was great value for Money. I would stay again here definitely. Only downside was safe deposit (was closed and had to ask front desk to come and open it)

The Gotham hotel is unlike many others you might have visited. It is small (I figure only about 40 rooms), yet high (22+ floors). It is located in a very busy, very urban, very chique area (close to 5th Av and the Rock), yet it is rather quiet, almost 'introvert'. It is fairly new, yet the rooms have been decorated... More

The rooms are large and well appointed with a balcony - although you might have a view of the wall. The bed was big and quite comfy. The bathroom was somewhat cramped, but otherwise clean and modern. Upon arrival, there was a welcome note from the management on the desk with a bottle of water and bag of nuts, leading... More

This is a return visit to The Gotham. Small, neat,caring and the most comfortable bed! My husband became ill and they referred me to a physician and were extremely conscientious and there for us. I can't wait to come back and stay there for our next visit to NYC. The rooms are small but definitely fine. Nothing fancy but clean... More

This hotel was the perfect place to stay in NYC. It was in walking distacne to most major attractions such as Times Square, The Empire State Building, Central Park and Grand Central Station.

After months (almost 3) of reading reviews, googling images, and looking for deals I finally booked The Gotham. Many other hotels in the same price range had many mixed reviews and nearly all of The Gothams reviews were very good. Conveniently located and in close walking distance to Times square, Central Park, Grand Central Station, etc,. Rooms are exactly as... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
