Never never have I seen a Reception area and elevator as filthy as this one. Stains and dirt, gouges in the elevator wood paneling, dirt everywhere Lethargic, worn out, staff, when I inquired on the filthy floors they told me to talk to Bob the owner. He never showed. The room was tiny that was ok, lights missing from the... More

Rooms are small, and it's very busy, but on the plus side, it's not terribly expensive for New York and the location if you are there on pleasure, could not be better. Will probably stay here again on our next visit.

This is a boutique hotel very conveniently located in the Times Square/Broadway district and right across from a Food Emporium. Rooms are tastefully decorated and compact, but have everything you need: free wireless, and ice available from th4 front desk.

This was my first stay at the Mayfair Hotel and I stayed for one night. First off, you can’t beat the price or the location. It’s located right next to “The Book of Mormon” and across the street from “Chicago.” And one of my favorite bars, Lillie’s, is across the street. The rooms are small, but that is typical by...

This is an old classy hotel in New York City right in the Times Square area. It could b the most economically prized budget hotel in this area. Rooms are not very spacious but comfortable and clean enough. Staff were polite and professional. Overall a very descent hotel in the middle of the city .

Let's say right off that the rooms are small. If that's an issue... move on. But if you appreciate a clean, quiet hotel in a great location... all for an affordable price... this is the place for you! We stay here every year and are always greeted by the same wonderful front desk staff. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The hotel was definitely one of the older hotels in New York City. The rooms were quite small, but also the cost per night was much less than the other more plush hotels as well. The staff were nice and helpful. If you are looking for a more reasonably priced hotel in the heart of the theater district and are... More

Great location, around 200m(220yd) from several NY metro lines...around 400m(450yd) from times sq. Rooms are a little bit small but clean. Great staff and very kind. Overall, don't expect a lot of refinement...it will do the job at a reasonable price.

Excellent location, great staff, clean, quirky but nice hotel. I would definitely recommended staying here! Prime location for anyone who is planning their trip around midtown New York. Me and a friend went for a 5 day trip and stayed in room 604. The room was a bit quirky but it was nicer than somewhere with plain walls and nothing... 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.
