Perfect place to rest and explore the cities landmarks. The ambiance is perfect for a get away within the city. The location makes it a perfect one since you are in the city but away from all the noise. The attention was perfect and very close to excellent restaurants.

We've stayed at a lot of places in Manhattan, and found the Lombardy by chance, and we were glad we did. The hotel is actually apartments that get rented out by the owners when they are not there. Instead of the usual tiny Manhattan hotel rooms, we ended up with a huge room, with walk in closet, kitchen area and... More

If you're looking for a relaxing stay, away from the hustle and bustle of NYC the Lombardy is a great choice! I loved that it wasn't a boutique hotel or a chain, it was much more personal. Keep in mind that the units are individually own, so in our case we were very lucky that it was well maintained, clean... More

What a find. I've stayed here both on business and for vacation and I love this place. Every room is different, with varying styles, colors and decor. It's like staying in an apartment building with every room having its own unique personality. Every room is very comfortable and spacious, especially for NYC, and has an upscale feel (this is not...

The Lombardy is a good choice if you need a strategic location. The entrance and lobby area is a bit old fashioned, in a very nice way. Pleasant staff.

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.
