I stayed at a studio when visiting NYC this past summer and really enjoyed the room. It is right close by Grand Central & Union Nations. The room was clean, spacious, had a big kitchen & fridge. Big tub in the bathroom and a TV to entertain while relaxing in there as well :-). The reception area is a bit... More

We needed to stay in Manhattan on a Monday night due to an engagement very early the next morning on the upper east side. We booked one night, king room, through a popular discount travel website. All we were really looking for was a clean, centrally located place for the night. The pros: complimentary champagne at check-in, complementary wine and... More

Very nice location & renovated 1 bedroom units are spacious & functional...TV in the bathroom, super sized fridge & a stovetop(no oven)...& free use of the washer/dryers on the activity floor! NY felt like home on this short getaway! Easy to walk everywhere! Just missing a pool! Great view from the owners lounge & lots of windows in the unit!

I spend more than 60 days a year in upscale hotels and am an elite member in some of the "frequent flyer" programs for airlines and the lodging industry. I responded to a solicitation and purchased a 3 night prepaid stay at this property. I was offered a refurbished room with kitchen facilities. The property was described as at least... More

I'll start by saying that I wanted to like this hotel. I often stay in the Courtyard by Marriott just up the street, at 53rd and 3rd. (Yes, like the Ramones song!) But the Wyndham was $100 cheaper per night, so I couldn't resist. It's summer, so I didn't mind walking a bit farther to the subway (it's 5 blocks... More

This hotel/owner condo establishment is still undergoing renovation so not all rooms have been updated. This was our second stay at this location and each time we have had non-renovated rooms. However, this time around at least all appliances worked. Where this hotel/owner condo establishment needs work is customer service. While I am not a demanding person, little things that... More

DISCLAIMER: I won a 5-night stay here through a contest with Days Inn, so I did not pay anything for accommodation. We had very low expectations, because of the trip advisor reviews, and we were REALLY pleasantly surprised. The location is good for midtown (far enough from Times Square, thank god), and a close walk to Grand Central. The staff... 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.
