After may trips to NYC, I've never stayed at the same hotel twice. The Hyatt 48 Lex will be my home away from home. The hotel employees from Front Desk to Housekeeping are polite and seem genuinely happy to be there. The second floor lounge is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours reading on a rainy afternoon... More

Very friendly staff and welcome. I stayed there for 3 nights. There is a 2nd floor that has a light breakfast then cheese and crackers and wine at night. One night there was an event in the restaurant so it was closed but they were serving on the 2nd floor. The library was never very busy and was decent space... More

Since I saw a couple of comparisons to Grand Hyatt, I would like to add a few lines on that topic. Entrance to the hotel is quiet, inconspicuous whereas, Grand Hotel is definitely grand but 48 Lex matches Grand Hyatt in most respects. The rooms are definitely better than Grand Hyatt for comparable prices. Doe not have the crazy light... More

I would have had nice things to say about this small Hyatt, which has a nice lounge area with free all-day coffee, tea and newspapers and I much prefer it to the Grand Hyatt on 42nd. The staff on the ground floor are also quite pleasant. This is the second visit in a row that I have received minibar charges... More

This hotel has a great boutique-y feel to it. The rooms are small but so nicely appointed. The hotel has complimentary continental breakfast in the morning and a wine and beer and cheese hour in the evening that was lovely. The staff was super courteous and helpful.

This is a limited service Hyatt that is well located and surprisingly quiet and comfortable. Staff was friendly but you may find service limited. Works very well for mid-town business and tourist that knows they will not need the hotel for meals or extra services. Price was reasonable for the Hyatt quality room and furnishings, close to good dining. 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.
