We blindly booked into this hotel by way of a package deal offered by Southwest Airlines. Not having ever seen it, and having read some negative reviews about it after our non refundable booking, we had a bit of trepidation about the property. But our fears were unfounded. It's a perfectly comfortable boutique hotel, recently tastefully renovated, and it's very convenient to subways at Grand Central and to the Newark Express bus service to EWR. Built in the 1920's, we suspect, it has a curiously small elevator that's a bit quirky in its operation but services its riders with no surprises. The staff is exceedingly friendly and seem to have a knack for remembering their guests by room number. The room we had (a double ensuite) was small but hardly cramped. There's a small closet to stow luggage after unpacking into a roomy 3-drawer bureau. Free wifi is a real treat, as New York hotels generally seem to nickel-and-dime guests for this service. And it's quiet! And it's extremely reasonably priced, too!!
On our next trip to the Big Apple, we shall surely try to book in here again, no question about it. We have also enjoyed the nearby Scotty's Diner, also reasonably priced versus its nearby competitors and full of friendly helpful waitstaff. So if you don't require the madness of a Times Square area venue, then The Seton is your kind of home away from home.
