I am writing my first review because I have just had the most amazing experience at the Wyndham Midtown 45 with Lisa and Jasnery at the front desk. My family and I just arrived to NYC from Miami for Thanksgiving and they did everything possible to make sure that our family would have a memorable time in the city and... More

Location is awesome! 10 minutes away from Grand Central Station and 15 minutes away from Times Square and Empire State Building. I must say that most of the hotels in America has an issue with their air ventilations in their bathrooms, all smoked up and takes a while for it to subside. Also the cabinet doors in the room was...

A wonderful experience - terrific location - right in the middle of Manhatten. Wyndham staff were wonderful, friendly, helpful ---couldn't ask for more. Our room was spacious and perfect with all the most modern and new conveniences. The bed was soooooo comfortable and every detail was taken care of promptly if we called the front desk (missing newspaper). Laundry room,... More

I stayed at this hotel 4 times in a row over the last month so I've gotten to know the place quite well. The location is absolutely perfect, a mere couple blocks from Grand Central, although not many cab drivers seem to be aware of it and the facade of the building looks just like any other office building. You... More

We had stayed here before in its earlier iteration as The Alex -- this was about two years ago. It was fine then, and in two years, it has taken on the patina of another two years of wear and tear. Wyndham has purchased the hotel, and are converting it to a time share property, and little capital expense is... More

They are still in the midst of remodeling but even our un-remodeled room was very nice. Friendly service from the staff. Only 2 blocks from Grand Central and so close to so many hit spots in Manhattan.

I was looking for something last minute for my 30th birthday celebration in the city. The hotel was walking distance to grand central and many of the attractions on our list. The staff was INCREDIBLY friendly and offered advice on local lounges. At check in, they changed our room to offer us a better view. When we opened the curtains,... More

We were in town to visit my son, his wife, and the new grandchild. It was our first time staying at the Wyndham Midtown 45. The staff was very friendly at check-in and throughout our entire weekend stay. We had a one bedroom unit on the 15th floor. The unit was in excellent condition. The location is very convenient to...
