We wanted to make a trip to New York city to see specific exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum. We set a budget and searched for hotels. We knew at the price it would not be fancy or have large rooms. But how much time do you spend in your room? The owner is in process of renovating/updating the rooms. Part... More

We found this hotel at the last minute at hotels.com and were thrilled. Location-close to the Piers, coffee shops and Grand Central were a big plus. Staff was warm, foyer festive (Lingering holiday decor), halls, elevator and room clean. Sheets were soft and comfy. An Italian restaurant in the basement not the best food but with a guest discount- you... More

We recently stayed in this hotel and I would give it mixed reviews. The Da Vinci is an older hotel with small but clean rooms. We had enough room to walk around and put suitcases down so I it was not much different from most New York hotels in that respect. The location was very close to Central Park and... More

Liked almost everything about this hotel... - Location is awesome...easy access to Broadway, Central Park, Columbus Circle, and easy subway access. - Great staff...helpful consistently even to the front desk clerk helping to get our bags out to the car. In fact, on three separate occasions, front desk staff exceeded expectations to help me, and did so with a smile,... More

Paying $200 per night in this location was a bargain. But that's the only good thing, this hotel has to offer. Throughout the week stay we may have had a total hot water running time of 10 minutes. The wifi constant cut out and you have no control over the heater- very annoying for fluctuating temperatures. The TV had no... More

I'm not usually too thrilled with an airshaft view, but at the Da Vinci, I was on the first floor right behind the front desk in the very quiet room 102 and it was nice not having to deal with the elevator. Plus there were some really amusing pigeons inhabiting some kind of mechanical thing outside the window. It WAS... More

Really nice hotel. Great location. Walking distance from 6th avenue (if that's your thing) and minutes away from Time Square and Central Park. Apart from one guy behind the desk who was really really helpful the rest of the staff are bit .....Urm, not helpful. Be prepared for blank expressions. Otherwise great little hotel.

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.
