Nothing bad about this hotel, but nothing outstanding. Just a stopover in NYC. No free WiFi is a problem. The hotel business office was nice and I was able to conduct my business in there. Location was good , but next time I might try a hotel with free WiFi.

I stayed at the Lexington while on a short weekend trip to NYC with my family. The hotel is in a good location for what we needed--easy access to 5th avenue and shopping but away from the insanity of Times Square. We stayed with 4 people in a room with 2 double beds. There is very little room to open... More

This place is a hidden gem in NYC! It's close to Grand Central and next to all the shopping... For business it provides a quiet place to stay and a great business center. If you are a Marriott gold or platinum Marriott member you get free breakfast and wine in the evening

Good location, comfortable bed and nice complimentary breakfast for the elite members, but my room was very tiny. Almost no space to open even one suite case. And cramped bathroom even for me, (I’m 155cm/ 5’1” tall)

Broken AC and a flight delay during a heat wave brought me here. The rooms are small and the décor quirky, which is fine and not annoying. A real bathroom beats some designer cube. Still, I find the lack of recycling to be bizarrely out of touch. For an Autograph Collection hotel- there should be an aggressive recycling program with... More

My wife and I stayed in a queen (cozy) room. Our primary purpose of visiting was to see broadway shows, and The Lexington put us within walking distance of TKTS which was great. The room was big enough for our needs, but we are not tall, and I imagine anyone over 5"10 would probably be a little cramped, especially in... 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.
