Booked The Moderne after reading such good reviews on Trip Advisor. I have lost count of the number of hotels I have stayed in in NYC over the past 10 year from budget to luxury, finally I have found one which was middle of the road price wise and I'd be happy to return to. We were greeted by Robbi... More

This hotel was in a great location close to major attractions and central park. Robbie at the front desk was helpful and is very knowledgeable about the city. The bathroom was very small and there was no shower door. Overall a great stay!

Basic hotel good location. Scary if there was a fire. Entrance hi steps not lit to easily find. Desk help helpful. No bell help around but did call to help with luggage and get taxi when leaving. Shower and towel shelves made for TALL. I coud barely reach bath towel.

This was a fabulous small hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. It was in a great location, a short walk from Times Square but still quiet. The rooms were very well equipped and the bed really comfortable. Although no bar, there was a lovely guest lounge on the second floor where you could make hot drinks and cake was... More

The Moderne is a nice, clean and comfortable if basic hotel for a good price in NYC. The rooms are small, but that comes with the location. It's nice and new and therefore not musty like other NYC hotels I've stayed in. The modern styled furnishings are a nice change of pace. The service of the staff was excellent. The... 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.
