Hotel service was good not excellent gave directions to subway about a couple blocks away very easy to find. Restaurant in the hotel was also good. Shopping on the corners and close to shows. The store next door sells food 24hrs and it's good so if you want to save money that's an option. Was expensive the first couple nights... More

I'm a loyal Kimpton Karma member and stay in Kimpton hotels whenever I can. The Muse was simply fabulous in all ways possible. Great room in a central (Times Square) location, with the typical awesome wine hour from 5-6pm (in my case, I was able to choose between spiked or non-spiked hot cider -- spiked with high quality rum I...

Let me start by saying I am always impressed by Kimpton and their commitment to customer service, so I have really high expectations for every Kimpton experience. My expectations were blown out of the water. The staff at the Muse is beyond amazing-- they are engaging, kind and incredibly responsive to even a remark that might be interpreted as a... More

We stayed here on our second leg of our honeymoon, and we were really impressed with the location. We were a 30 second walk to time square and the Broadway TKTS (where we got amazing tickets to Motown).We loved the vicinity of the Hotel as it was in the middle of everything we needed. We found the most amazing Cuban... More

Can't beat this location! Drive right up-and they take your car and unload your bags. Rooms were very clean-albeit small but so are most of the rooms in NYC. Staff was great and helpful. Bar is nice too! Highly recommend

Booked our annual girl's trip last October for NYC in Feb. It turned out to be the coldest day in NYC in years. We picked the Muse for location to everything we wanted to experience. The rooms are perfect! We had a balcony, which was an awesome size, but too cold to really enjoy due to snow and single digit... More

The Muse is a bit out of the Times Square fray, as it's closer to 6th Ave. than to Broadway. Still, the 46th Street location means that some of the lower rooms can be noisy at night. Try to get a room on the upper floors in the back of the hotel. The rooms can also be a bit drafty... More

We have stayed at a Kimpton hotel in Philadelphia, so decided to try out the Muse for a trip to see a play. The theater was 2 clocks away, so this location was really perfect for us.

Thank you to Kimpton Hotels for the karma reward free night stay you gave me. Just returned from staying at The Muse. It was my first time there and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

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.
