Location of hotel excellent and quite clean. However hotel is really dated and shabby. Room was really dark with window facing brick wall. Temperature was really boiling, complained every day and got a fan on the last day. One small lift in hotel which took ages. Staff were not very helpful and had trouble understanding us at times. Would not... More

The hotel had a good location but had very out dated decor. We arrived in our room to find a small window which was imeddiatley blocked by a wall -this meant no natural light. Then on the website we were told that all double double rooms had a bath tub, however ours did not. We went back to the reception... More

Really nice hotel right in the middle of midtown. Two blocks away from the Empire State Building, and a ten minute walk to Times Square, plus a subway stop about twenty paces outside the door, this hotel was fantastic to reach all the top tourist spots on Manhattan. The hotel staff were very knowledgeable and friendly, it has a nice... More

A great location, only meters away from the subway station, two blocks from Maddison Square Garden, around the corner from the Empire State Building, many restaurants, Macy's, and shopping mall close by. A supermarket and drug store on the same block. Free wifi was a plus. The decor was a little dated but we were only there to sleep so... More

Perfect for down and uptown sightseeing. 34th Street & Herald Square Subway within 25metres. Very helpful staff. Good, clean and comfortable hotel in midtown. Free coffee & tea on the 2nd floor between 10am-4pm. Will look after your bags if you have a late flight and want to spend the time between check-out and leaving town for some last minute... More

I took my teenage daughter on her first NYC trip this past weekend for her Christmas present. I picked this hotel for three main factors: location, price, availability of two beds. I cannot tell you how pleased we were with this hotel. As others have said, it isn't much to look at from the outside or the lobby. But upon... More

If you are a tourist in NYC, consider this hotel. It does not look like much from the outside, or the inside for that matter, but the rooms are clean and had comfortable beds. I was in town for 3 days, so most my time was spent down at street level, shopping and site seeing. Staff are helpful and friendly... More

I know usually these two words shouldn't be tied together in the same sentence when talking about mid town Manhattan hotel, but it's true! We recently search and search and search again to find the cheapest yet convenient hotel to stay in Midtown Manhattan for our Christmas weekend. The staff are friendly and they didnt hesitate to help you out.... More

Stayed at this hotel in January for 4 nights. First time to New York but found the hotel really easy to find off the NJ Transit into Penn Station. Public areas a bit tired but our room was very clean and warm. Big flat screen tv and plenty of wardrobe space. My only gripe was no tea/coffee making facilities but... More

I have stayed at a number of different locations around NYC and this was probably the most convenient. Right by the N/Q/R and F/D/B subway lines you can easily get around to most tourist/site seeing locations. Walking distance to Times Square and 5th ave. The common areas are a little old but our room was more up to date, very... 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.
