The hotel is in an AMAZING location being just off Time square. The reception staff were lovely & helpful, the room was big enough for 3. We all managed to sleep well. The feel of the hotel was kind of sketchy, the bathroom floor was cracked and dirty and the water wasn't very warm. But its an overall good hotel... More

Great location on Times Square, rooms were spacious and good, staff on reception was friendly ( changed the room immediately for us when we didn't like it), room was a bit dusty, small lift, noisy hotel corridor with all kind of travel agencies operating there..rooms were cheaper according to Times Square location of the hotel..

The hotel is old and has a lot of history behind the closed doors of the Carter. in the late 1990s the hotel housed the walfare familys and children played in the hallways pushing the buttens of the eleavaters; you would stop at every flour on your way to the lobby. Since than there has been a lot of upgrades... More

I was there for a weekend and we got a room that had broken window and it was winter.. Asked to be in a different bedroom, but carpet was smelling bad. Worst hotel ever. It was very close to Times Square which was a plus, but never again.

this place was okay. It did the job and the location was AWESOME! The hotel provided shuttle to and from the airport which was very convenient. The hotel was clean and the beds were comfy. The bathrooms was very small but hey it did its purpose. Overall I would stay here again.

Not even one block away from times square, it was the best location especially for the low price. Hotel was old, dirty and small but we never spend much time in the hotel when in new york. If you just need somewhere to sleep, this is a great place to save money for other experiences in new york. Perfect for... More

Stayed here for 4 days with mother and brother. Our room was quite small, squeezed in 2 double beds, barely enough room to walk round, the bathroom was clean but small, shower wasn't great. Walking round the hotel we noticed other rooms were bigger and had more space than we did so guess we were unlucky on that front. Great... More

Its an old hotel, but no worse than similar ones in Rome, London, etc. Paid wifi available. Store/restaurant downstairs was convenient. 2 slow elevators but there are stairs if you really have no choice lol. ATMs at lobby. It was good enough for me and my friend to sleep in and shower at. The room and ensuite bathroom were clean... More

Hotel is a dive. Maybe cheap for area of NYC but look elsewhere and pay a few bob more, sinking falling off wall. Only thing going for it is location being on top of Times Square, but in bad need of a facelift.

We're a family of five, with teenagers. Flight and hotel worked well within our budget. Hotel was close to Time Square where everything happens. We also got a great deal on the hop-on/off bus tour for the week. Hotel was central to all bus stops. We saw all of New York City in one week. Accommodations were clean, friendly and... 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.
