I recently stayed at this property when I was in town for the NYC marathon. I was so thrilled that it was an option because hotels can get extremely pricey. The location was perfect in that it is only a couple blocks from Gran Central. If you are a Wyndham Timeshare owner you are not going to get all of... More

This resort is not the most amazing of all the Wyndham resorts we've stayed in but the LOCATION is AMAZING. You are so close to Grand Central terminal it makes going just about anywhere in NY super easy. There are also amazing little delis and gourmet food shops all around. The accommodations here are decent, clean and efficient. Nothing too... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. The staff was amazingly helpful. We started off in a two-bedroom presidential suite which had been recently renovated. After our daughter and granddaughter left, we stayed in an unrenovated 1-bedroom. Both accommodations were great with plenty of room, TV in every room, a nice, small kitchen. We had a nice view of the... More

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
