My wife and I visited New York for Holiday arriving on July 18 for 4 nights at The Lombardy Hotel on E 56th St. We arrived late in the afternoon after a long 7 hour drive from Toronto (we used Hertz and it was easy to drop off the car a few blocks from the hotel). The Reception greeted us... More

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. My room was on the 8th floor and looked out on the street. It was huge and very comfortable with new modern furniture and a small kitchen ( which I did... More

I stayed at the Lombardy because I was on a 6-night business trip and I thought an apartment would be more comfortable. In many ways, it was. I had a 1BR apartment that had a small kitchen. It was nice to have a small fridge and microwave, and wifi was complimentary. But the hotel does lack some amenities of a... More

My parents rented an apartment at "The Lombardy" and invited us to travel with them. I loved the experience. I love NYC, and the staff is very nice. The apartments ( we stayed in 2 different ones) were SUPER nice and well equipped. All good.

I've stayed numerous times at this property and really enjoy it's mid town location. It has an old world charm that's unique with today's hotels. Each room is decorated differently and well appointed. Nothing really fancy, just very clean and dependable.

Good morning, bengillikin. Thank you very much for continued patronage at The Lombardy. We are pleased to learn our rooms and suites meet your needs when visiting New York City. It is unfortunate a lower floor poses a risk for traffic noise, but please rest assured the bedroom windows are double-paned to reduce that inconvenience. We look forward to seeing... More

I have visited the Lombardy multiple times and I think one of my favorite qualities about it is each suite is individually owned, meaning no two rooms are alike. They are also very great in size. Every time I've stayed here I have had a magnificent view and great experience. The staff were always friendly and very welcoming. I love... More

Great location, walking distance to most attractions. Check out the larger suites if travelling with family. I had a room suitable for single or couple, feels spacious with limited kitchen. Plenty of convenience stores around to pick up essentials which is handy given tea/coffee is not supplied. My bathroom was rather small for two but fine for one. Morning coffee... 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.
