Fabulously located gem of a hotel. When we arrived at 6am the staff were apologetic that our room wasn't ready. After being given coffee and a freshen-up kit they looked after our luggage whilst we went out until our room was ready. Room was good size with comfy bed and superb shower. We were in good walking distance of all... More

We recently stayed at the Muse for 7 nights. As others have said the location of this is perfect. Its smack bang in the middle of the action however as its up a side street the street itself and entry to hotel are quiet which is rare in NY. We had the King Balcony suite which was good to get...

Very nice hotel. We stayed in a newly renovated room. Great amenities. Spacious bathroom with counter space and walk in glass shower. Nice people at the front desk. Very helpful. And the location is perfect, if you want to stay real close to Times Square. It's far enough away that the street is relatively quiet, yet one block up its... More

Fantastic location - 1/2 block off of Times Square, although you are away from the chaos. Great central local near Broadway shows, 5th Ave shopping, Central Park and the subway. Rooms are fairly spacious for a downtown locale. Courteous staff and clean room.

The staff at The Muse continues to amaze me. I have been staying there almost once a week for several years now and they continue to outdo themselves on each and every stay.

Love Times Square and the Broadway theater district. And we love the Kimpton Hotel experience. The Muse gives us the best of both...a respite from the craziest of the street with an upscale urban vibe. We will be back and look forward to staying in one of the balconied rooms. Quiet, great staff, wonderful lounge! A chain, yes, but with... More

This is my second time staying at a Kimpton and it has become my favorite "go to" hotel. In my experience their customer service is unaparalled. We were greeted and assisted with our luggage upon arrival, 3 of us stayed in The King Size Executive suite which was comfortable and spacious....a bottle of Proseco, truffles and fruit were waiting for...

The Muse is undergoing a major renovation, which is noticeably needed. Compared to other Kimpton properties this hotel shows its age, and the design, if classy, is not as vivid as the brand is known for. The gym is one of the areas closed for construction, but they offered us passes to an aquatic center nearby. Our king room was... More

We stayed at the Muse hotel for 3 nights in May and loved the hotel - it's fairly small (which is what we wanted) and so had a personal feel but in a great location just 1 block from Times Square. The staff were very attentive and there were some really nice touches such as the free wine hour each... 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.
