Excellent hotel with brilliant staff! Young men in front desk where excellent and very nice when we had trouble loosing passports. Location is 100yards from Times Square where you find the best tourist area for restaurants and wandering around day or night! Hotel rooms nice for a short break and very clean.

The hotel might be in need of an upgrade here and there but it's right in the smack center of it all. You can walk to Times Square in 5 minutes and most of your Broadway theaters are less than 5 minutes away too! My room was old style but well maintained and very clean and the free wi-fi worked...

This hotel is in the theater district at a good bargain. The rooms are small and clean and the bathroom in our room was beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is an old hotel and it is showing it's age but we had an excellent stay.

The best thing about this hotel was the location and the good rate that we got. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were small and clean but the bathroom was exceptional. This hotel was featured in the movie Wolf with jack Nicholson and Michelle pfiefer but none of the staff knew that. We enjoyed our stay here very... More

Needs to be refurbished. Good location but very small room and bed was a disaster. Soft and lumpy. Reception was helpful with check in. WiFi intermittent. Not many channels on the TV. Need to include breakfast.

This year was my third stay at he Mayfair NYC and I consider it a fabulous little treasure among all the insanely priced hotels in the Times Square area. I had my doubts at first but now The Mayfair Hotel is my "Boo". I really don't require much. Along with being located in the heart of all the action you... More

I E Mailed the hotel with questions relating to storage of luggage as we were arriving well before check in time this was answered quickly and confirmed we could use luggage storage.The staff were brilliant...

I chose the Mayfair based on its location and very attractive price. It's situated right beside the Eugene O'Neill theatre and opposite St Malachy's cathedral, with only a short walk to get to Times Square. The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly with directions when I arrived late and night and needed to get something to find the nearest... More

We almost overlooked this hotel thinking that if the price was that good, it must not be a great hotel. We were wrong! The Mayfair staff was friendly, helpful and welcoming from the moment we entered. We arrived early in the day just off of a cruise and had booked a tour. We had about 1 hour to get checked... 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.
