Stayed here on my first trip to NYC. Location wasn't all that bad but it wasn't like super convenient location. The room was really small and dated. I wouldn't recommend those who is looking for a chain-hotel standard. I guess you get what you paid for and Murray Hill Inn would provide you with OK location, clean bed and OK... More

Location is very good The kitchennet is a big plus.Clean, but should pay more attention on that. Multilingual staff very freindly and helpful. The only problem I had was the keys of my room. It was very difficult to enter. They should be replaced. If I go again to NYC, I will stay there for sure.

Murray Hill Inn was the first hotel i stayed at in New York. This was back in 2007. I was on a budget and decided to stay here, and i liked it very much. Sure, you can find much better hotels in NY, but keep in mind those often cost wayyy more. The location was excellent, the rooms were clean,... More

stayed here for a month in may. I was attracted by the cheap price, location and quick move in. What they don't tell you is that there is a $300 application fee, $50 electric, and $75 cleaning fee. They didn't mention any of those costs. The guy just kept bulls@#ting me. I asked how many channels they had and if... More

We stayed here for 9 nights in 2008 and it was ideal for our needs. It was my first trip to NY and the hubby had only been once before. All we really wanted was somewhere to crash after our days of sight seeing and this was perfect. En suite was fine. Room was cleaned and tidied daily if we... More

This was my first stay in NYC. I chose the Murray Hill Inn because it was a decent price and the location was close to everything - quick walk to the subway, and Grand Central Station, Empire State Building and Times Square were also within easy walking distance. The location was probably the best part about the hotel, along with... More

I stayed here in Dic 2008. I remembered from this hotel is that it was in a good location but everything else was below my expectations. We stayed in a room on the ground floor. The room's heating system was very noisy and we didn't have one night of good sleep. If you are looking for a place where to... More

The hotel was not a nice hotel. Dingy feeling, small and cramped. Was a fiasco. DONT STAY HERE unless you absolutely have to.

The corridors accessing the room were frighteningly narrow. The room was quite small with bare floors that amplified sound. From the room above a baby bawled most of the night while the heat pipes rattled. The location of the hotel is good but not the best. There is a parking garage right around the corner which is convenient and WiFi... 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.
