Location, location, location. Great place to stay if you are wanting a room 1 block from Times Square. Fulfilled my requirements for a place to sleep as I spent 18+ hours out in the city. The restaurant was ok. Starbucks 1/2 block away.

I loved small hotel in center of NY. Service was excellent, room was clean and no problems at all. I was spending there 4 days with my small daughter and we were very satisfied even room was small, but it was enough for us.

We were only coming to the city for a short trip to see Book of Mormon so we wanted something nearby. This hotel is next door to the theater and close by to so many shops and restaurants that it made the 5° temps manageable. We had to change rooms after the first room didn't have heat but it was...

This might be the smallest hotel in the entire world. At least the smallest I've ever stayed in. There is but one elevator that I knew of, and it barely fit two people and their luggage. Walking up the four flights of stairs was actually faster. The room was tiny but nicely decorated, old fashioned and cute. The bathroom needed... More

We paid altogether(i.e., including taxes) $353.56 for two (2) nights. If you can find a room for two for less, that's great. Otherwise, try the Mayfair. The hotel staff were courteous. (Others have reported rudeness; we did not encounter rudeness.) The room included a personal safe, an ironing board, and an iron. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Plumbing... More

We have stayed at the Mayfair Hotel for 3 years now (our friends even longer). It is convenient to everything & the staff is wonderful. We were on the 2nd floor this year so used the stairs. The Hotel needs to be updated but the bathroom was up to date, the room clean tho tiny. The bed was very comfortable... More

We chose this hotel because of it's location and it was a good choice for that reason. Just like most of the reviews say, this is an old hotel and it shows its age but we had a cute, little room that was comfy and clean. The elevator was very slow and we ended up using the steps most of... More

My room was very small, but quite enough for one person. Honestly, the rug needed to be replaced in the room, and maybe update the furniture a little. I could not adjust the heat in the room and was told to put on the AC. Really, in December. Overall, it was an ok room for the money. The location is... More

Well first off let me start by saying this Hotel was by far the cheapest hotel I could find in Manhattan NYC that was close to Time Square, all the broadway shows, transportation, and close to Central Park. The hotel does show its age in certain aspects but also in a way it has a romantic warm quaint feeling to... More

If you want to stretch out, or work out, or basically do anything but shower and sleep... this isn't the place for you. I know NYC has small hotel rooms, but this takes the cake. That said, we wanted to get out and see things and needed a place to lay our head and to warm up in the middle... 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.
