Bruce was there to welcome us when we arrived, and from the moment we walked in the door, we felt like we were at home. The location was great, the place was clean, and the host was wonderful. The Sutton was full when we were there, but we rarely saw anyone else, and never had to wait for the bathroom... More

Great second stay. Ive already recommended it to numerous friends who have also loved it! Bruce is extremely helpful in answering any questions and giving advice. The location is superb and the area in general is very safe and welcoming. The amazing prices make it possible to come to this great city again and again!

This place is great for people going to NYC to discover the city. If you are a "common" tourist you do not expect to spend manyhours in your hotel, you will be out and just want a nice place to come back and rest, if that is your case this place is a good option. LOCATION IS AMAZING and the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sutton. All the rooms are small, but very clean and well maintained. Our bed was soft and cozy. Nice wall to wall carpet throughout the building. Bruce the owner is very friendly and helpful. The location was in the heart of the city, and the price was right for our needs. My wife... More

The Sutton Residence is the perfect place to stay. Located in the heart of Manhattan you have all the most famous attractions within a walkin distance, and for the others the subway stop is 5 minutes. The place is very cheap for ney york prices but it's very comfortable. There is a common living room and kitchen for everyone to... More

The sutton residence was a perfect fit for my recent trip to the city. The location and price were exactly what I was looking for! The manager Bruce was helpful and accommodating but never intrusive. I highly recommend that you consider the sutton residence. It is actually an apartment with 5 available rooms for rent. There are 3 bathrooms to... More

The Residence is in fact a large apartment with kitchen, living room, 3 bathrooms and six bedrooms. It is located over a barbershop and a small café/bar on 47th Street (corner Lexington) very close to Grand Central Station. There are plenty of parking lots around, the cheapest ones being on 46th St. between 1st & 2nd Ave. Expect to pay... More

I arrived late Sunday afternoon and at first was a little confused because there is no external sign for the Residence and I wasn't sure if I had the right place. However Bruce, the manager, was waiting for me and answered the door promptly. He kindly helped me get my bags inside and so the lack of a lift was... More

A good experience in this guesthouse. A good and afordable solution in the center of Manathan if you do not mind sharing the bathroom. Friendly owner. A little bit more attention to bathroom cleanliness could be possible even if I understand you can not clean after each guest.

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.
