We wanted to stay in theater district, close to the things we wanted to do and at a reasonable price. We like the "European" style rooms and décor and elevator (very small, just like in Europe). We did not mind that the décor is a bit mature (worn) because we weren't in our room much at all. The bathroom is... More

We had stayed at this hotel once before about 3 years ago. What brought us back was the excellent location, friendly staff and price However, it does need some money spent on it. The only elevator is not only small, but needs a good cleaning; it apparently had been painted since our last visit, but still shows signs of neglect.... More

My husband and I stayed here for seven nights as part f package deal with airfare through AAA. We needed a great location that was affordable. This was perfect! Water pressure was excellent with a deep tub and plenty of hot water. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again and have told our friends about this hotel.

I spent 5 nights at the Mayfair in March. I had read the reviews and I knew what to expect. Yes, the building is old and the carpets in the hallways are totally worn. Heating was much higher than I would have liked (it is centrally controlled). But my (very small) room was clean and comfortable. The staff is nice,... More

I stayed at the hotel for four nights. The location in Midtown Manhattan is great and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is clean but a bit worn. In New York City sense this hotel is great value for the money.

I booked a three-night stay here recently. The room did have a European style to it, small rooms with nooks and crannies cleverly used, the staff was helpful and friendly, the location in the theatre district most convenient. However, that said, one should know that this is a very old building with lots of old building problems--unalterable heat (especially uncomfortable... More

Haven't been to New York in a couple of years and was looking for a place to stay. Found the Mayfair Hotel through Booking.com and was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The rooms were small but extremely clean (and how much time do you actually spend in your room anyways). The staff were very helpful and friendly. And the hotel... More

I just came home from a trip to NYC over my spring break. My whole trip was booked through Expedia and I found an absolutely incredible deal for Mayfair. I stayed three nights, and the stay averaged out to $113/night--unheard of when you're half a block away from Broadway/Times Square. In addition, the hotel is literally right NEXT to the... More

Stayed couple of nights in Mayfair. Located right next to Broadway and close to Times square. The location is close(5 minute walk) to a couple of underground train stations. And is very close to the "NYtourshuttle" stop off broadway.Had a problem with a Locker and the hotel staff were nice enough to change the room. The rooms are basic, but... More

The hotel Mayfair in New York is conveniently located 2 minutes walking distance from Times Square, it is literally an old hotel in the center of Manhattan. What is attractive about this hotel is the value for money, i had the opportunity of staying here during January, which is the coldest month in New York and the heating system and... 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.
