I thought the Mayfair New York was the quaintest little hotel. We found it very late on a saturday night when no one else had available rooms. The man at the front desk was very accomodating. He let the three of us stay in a single room, and even went so far as to get us an extra futon mattress.... More

Having just stayed 4 days for Business, the Hotel was simply awful, except for the exceptionally kind office staff. They are so decent. The Hotel should be called "The Filthy Carpet" vs. the Mayfair. It is simply a dump. Complete with Urine stains on the seating area of the tiny room. The carpets were so filthy, that one dares not... More

Great location. Don't know if I would stay there again. Rooms were extremely small - like a closet. Bathroom okay. Fire alarms kept going off on our floor. They made one announcement which I couldn't hear. Very scary. Took a long time for someone to come up to our floor and check. Woman down the hall said the alarm went... More

In contrast to some of the other reviews, I think Mayfair New York has a great location and is a fantastic value. In fact, I've returned to stay at the Mayfair about a dozen times during the past six years! I travel to New York on business frequently, and have stayed at quite a few of the more affordable hotels... More

The rooms are very small (as expected) and the air conditioning is very noisy and old. It is expensive at £70 a night per single room but the location is what you pay for. However, they overcharged me by $300 and are still yet to refund me the full amount. No explanation, no apology, no communication at all. Be very... More

The Mayfair is in terrible shape, the rooms are small, nothing is maintained. Service was horrible. Obviously it is WAY overpriced. Its location is the only positive. I will never stay there again.

After I had made reservations at the Mayfair, someone told me about the Trip Advisor website. I checked out the Mayfair and was somewhat dismayed. It was, however, too late to find another hotel. My husband and I approached the Mayfair with some trepidation. What we found was a friendly and helpful young woman from Belgium at the desk, a... More

My Husband and I stayed at this hotel in 2001. The location was great, but the hotel was the smallest I had ever seen. It was chosen on price, but i think that we could have obtained a nicer room at another hotel for the same price. We invited family from Conneticut , who i had never met in my... More

I stayed here the day after Thanksgiving, 2004. I bought through Hotwire. It reminded me of a little Paris Hotel I stayed in. Small Lobby... some character. But the room was incredibly small. The smallest I've ever stayed in. The Bathroom actually had a bi-fold door and the bed was an odd-sized twin and a half---not a full size as... 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.
