Easy to find and close to subway and walking distance from lots of sights and shops. The rooms were spacious and clean, and great beds. The Hyatt hosts were very helpful and service minded. Great wine hour everyday with a selection of beer, white- and red wine and some cheese and crackers. Free wifi that worked really great, very helpful... More

We travel to NYC often and this is by far the best hotel in this price range. If you prefer high end but don't want to pay for it in NYC, this is a great choice. Very clean, excellent service at all hours, high end rooms. The rooms are on the small side but if you're not planning to do... More

Hotel is very nice, very quiet even though it is in a busy area. Much better than almost all other hotels in Manhattan, Has small boutique feel but gives the benefits of a large chain (Hyatt). Great location for business travel.

We are Hyatt fans and time share owners. Everything was great but I think we just prefer a larger hotel with restaurant inside. This one was off to the side and they were not accommodating to us and the hotels was rude:(

The Hyatt 48 Lex is the perfect hotel for tourists in NYC! It's located 1 block from Grand Central and 15 minutes by foot from Times Square. The area is quiet (for Manhattan) and has several restaurants, kiosks and shops close by. Service in the hotel was impeccable and the rooms are perfect for what you need when you're visiting...

The location is great a few blocks from Grand Central and easy access to anywhere in the city. I have also stayed at the... More

Excellent hotel with great staff and a very modern clean hotel also. I read a few reviews which were negative and would completely disagree. This team cannot do enough fit you. On arrival John upgraded us as it was our first stay and we got a great 7th floor room overlooking Lexington Avenue. The room was so clean and spacious... More

My wife and I visited NYC for three days from Chicago looking for some relaxing time to enjoy the city and theatre. Stayed at Hyatt 48 Lex because I had points in their rewards program. Delightfully pleased by modern room, cleanliness. King room was typical size of NYC hotel, but everything was there. Great internet, desk with easy access to... 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.
