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 are two 50 something women who love to travel, explore, museums, nature, theater. We chose the Mayfair manly for price, and location so that we may enjoy the above. We were pleasantly surprised with the charm of this quaint hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, willing to find answers for any questions we had. We had a... 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

This hotel is creepy. My door handle fell off, the room is the size of a closet. The tv was a very very old model. I wanted to leave but i booked via expedia. The old fashioned bathroom was the only high point. No parking

They clearly only have two things going for them. Location and their past achievements. Great location to Broadway and Times Square but it's clear that this hotel had a great history and must have been an amazing hotel at one point in time. But it is clearly not that now. From the start we came to an unwelcoming hotel. One... More

I stayed here for five nights on my first ever visit to New York. I was in a small single room which I found very cosy (although someone else might consider it claustrophobic). It was also on the sixth floor, so very safe and secure. Bed was comfortable, no problems. Bathroom fine, shower fine. Large flatscreen TV and wifi worked... More

the lobby paneling with real wood went a long way toward establishing the feel of a London west end hotel. Photos of Hollywood stars from the 30's were a nice touch too.The room was small but if you're in love you don't want your significant other to get too far away. The staff couldn't seem to produce key cards that... 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.
