This hotel is in the perfect location to easily walk to most of the major attractions and neighborhoods 'to see' around Manhattan. It's a small, older building but has a lot of character and we had not issues with the size of the room (and were happily surprised with a king sized bed :) The staff was friendly, helpful and...

After reading the negative reviews on this hotel, I was quite skeptical to be staying here. I even brought my own sheets. I did not see any cockroaches as people have claimed, our bedding was clean and front desk staff were courteous. If I had to pick one thing to complain about, it would be a hair I found in... More

Located a few minutes walk from Times Square and other local landmarks, this hotel is good for those on a budget wanting a central location. We found the room a little cramped for three but was clean, well serviced with adequate facilities within the room. A little noisy at night with traffic noise but air con allows the windows to...

I went in March with my significant other. It was a great value for the location. The rooms were cute and small. The bed was very comfortable. The heat/AC was kind of loud, but great besides that for the price.

Located right in the middle of theatre district and one block from subway. Staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. Priced excellent for its location, little lower price as its a little dated, but overall excellent value for the money.

I was very impressed by this cute little gem I found in New York 2 blocks from times Square. Couldn't beat the price, I was upgraded upon check in to a bigger room by Matt at front desk who I absolutely loved. He was kind and always willing to help us. we stayed in room 505 which faced the church... More

I stayed in this hotel for only one night but I was already very pleased with their service. The lobby was tiny but pretty nice. The lift weren't very safe and it was a bit too old and small. The rooms are also small but the bathroom is quite big. I would recommend this hotel but it is better if... More

We visited NYC in July 2015 for 4 days. We saw 4 Broaway shows while we were there in addition to the usual tourist spots. The hotel was in a perfect location for us as we were able to walk just about everywhere we went. The only time we took a cab was to go to the 9/11 Memorial and... More

The Mayfair Hotel on 49th street is a very nice, quaint hotel. The rooms are nice with a nice size bathroom. The elevator is quite small. It can only hold 2 people with luggage or three people without luggage. They don't take cash, only credit cards. It is also just down from the theatre that plays the Book of Mormon... More

Stayed at the Mayfair Hotel recently. It is super convenient to Times Square and the Broadway theatres. Rooms are nice and the mattress in our room was comfortable. They have one elevator that is rather small. Only two people with their luggage can fit. Also, I thought the toilet was low to the ground but I enjoyed the charm of... 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.
