4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Okay, so you won't have your breath taken away by the lobby - it's very small! Well, more like any entry way, but the room was clean, well taken car of, and spacious by Zmanhattan standards - enough room for my yoga mat! Great location - close to everything.

We stayed here to attend the St. Patrick's day parade in NYC. We had a large renovated studio overlooking 45th street. We are Wyndham owners, so we knew to expect the timeshare presentation. The unit was very clean and well-laid out. The staff was friendly and helpful with our various questions. It is nice having the kitchen for sodas, making... More

This used to be the Hotel Alex which was lovely and stylish. The Wyndham took over and made the lobby a little cheap looking with the bright blue logo rugs ect. I think the service was better when it was Hotel Alex. This is a great location and there is a rooftop lounge area. We never ate at the hotel.... More

This building is slowly ceasing to be a hotel and will reappear as essentially a timeshare. I cannot comment on the refurbished rooms since they were not available for the hotel guests. I am sure that if you are a timeshare person then some of the other reviews may be more appropriate. However if you are a hotel guest and... More

I've stayed here 5 or 6 times now, each time in a different room, each room different! Some are cramped, others bizarrely shaped and yet others spacious. Some have great views (especially higher up), others look straight onto a wall. So, the quality of one's stay depends a lot on the room. As it is undergoing renovation (still) service is... More

This was my first visit to New York City. I have always seen shows about how small the rooms are there. I was surprised to find our room was large and we had every amenity we could wish for. Since we are already Wyndham owners we will always have access all of their resorts. The staff were gracious and friendly.... More

I visited this hotel as a guest of a Wyndham time share owner so I have no idea what this unit cost, but I must say I was very impressed! I've stayed in some NYC hotels that didn't even have private baths, so this was a huge step up from my usual lodging. The roomy unit had two bedrooms and... More

Wyndham recently opened this resort, and it is still undergoing renovations. We were in a 1-BR deluxe renovated unit which was not comfortable. It faced another part of the building, so there was NO view, which is important to us. The bathroom was tiny and not functional for 2 people. Tub/shower was difficult to safely use because of poor room... More

I stayed in this hotel last night. First, you should realize the hotel is under construction and as a result there are men and material moving through the entrance and on the elevators and they make a lot of noise. The entrance has a plastic screen entrance. The rooms, at least the non- suite ones, have extremely thin walls and... More

I found this hotel in kind of a roundabout way. I come to the City a lot for business (I live Upstate), and once I needed to be in the east 40's, near Grand Central, and found this hotel online. I booked a regular room, but got upgraded to a suite. Holy moley! It was a true two-bedroom *two-bathroom* suite... 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.
