The Hyatt chain unfortunately would be quite disappointed in this hotel and I understand why at the end of August it will no longer be under the Hyatt banner. When you are paying more than the Grand Hyatt you expect more and Hyatt 48 Lex did not reach this for me. The lounge is purely that, a comfortable place to... More

My fiance and I stayed here in August 2015. I was in town for a work related trip. This was my first time staying at this property, and I was very pleased with the experience. The room was relatively small as is usual in New York, but with a layout that utilized the square footage well. I was pleasantly surprised... More

Stayed one night in a standard room. Very small but comfortable, overlooking 48th street. Very clean shower and relatively quiet. No particular charm but nothing wrong. Typical business hotel with an efficient and friendly enough service. Worth the last minute deal i got!

I spent the weekend of July 4 here and it was a great home base. The room was big, clean, and quiet. The location is superb---right across from the Waldorf Astoria, with easy access to everything in midtown Manhattan. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They quickly knew me by name, and one handed me a free drink ticket... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hyatt 48 last weekend. This location is close enough to tourist areas and far enough away to escape the crowds. This area is also a residential area. Great restaurants. Blommingdales is close enough to walk to. Subway lines are close by. We rented bikes and cycled around the area. Safe area.

Most Hyatt's are huge but this Hyatt tucked on 48th is low key and the vibe is like a small NY boutique hotel with the $500+ per night price tag. It still offers all the amenities of the typical hyatt but the lounge is much hipper. The staff do a nice job managing a continuous flow in the small lobby... 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.
