We stayed 3x nights and the location was fantastic 😀 just seconds away from Times Square, the metro,food and entertainment. Unfortunately the service was horrible with staff doing as little as possible to help and make you feel welcome and comfortable. If you're wanting a central location with no frills this is the spot for you. The rooms are basic,... More

They don't offer free Wifi, ridiculous in 2014! They charge you 10 dollars for the day! The tv channels were also very limited. No comforters either. Good location, decent bed and shower. Believe you can find a better place for the price

For 78 dollars a night, you cannot best the convenience of being in the middle of Times Square and so close walking distance to most things you'd like to see. I highly recommend it and this is the second time I've stayed there in 2 years.

Can't beat location. Room was basic and adequate. Stayed with myself and 3 kids. Room was just to sleep in and chill after busy days. Served the purpose. Was some mould high up on walls but not big deal to us. Everything else was perfectly clean. Basic, but clean. Would stay again for price.

This was my wife's first trip to New York and the hotel made a hero out of me. I booked the stay thru the internet. After reading all sort of mixed commentaries, I chose it for the location. Got in early (1030a) and asked for early check-in, but hotel was full. The young guy told me to come back at... More

The only positive thing I can say about this hotel is its location. It is right across the Theater District and Times Square. We stayed there for 3 nights during the New Year and the price was cheap for such a good location: $139 per night. However, don't expect anything else from this place. When we arrived there, the reception... More

Despite the low price, this is doesn't worth it!! Me and my gf stayed there for only one night, but this was bad from the beginning to the end. First of all, at the entrance to the hotel there are high stairs that weren't so easy with the luggage. After that, the staff wasn't nice, tried to force us to... 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.
