“Wonderful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great stay overnight this week at the Mansfield -- my second time staying there. Large room with a queen bed, bay window with a window seat, plenty of room to move around, and adequate closet space. Small but spotlessly clean bathroom. Love the size of the hotel. Appreciated the dust-free hard wood floors, free shoe shine, and helpfulness of everyone on the staff. Requested and received room not overlooking 44th St., which can be noisy. Diner on 44th St. provides large, reasonably priced breakfast.

The staff was great the rooms were a little small but quite adequte and well decorated. The location was perfect as it was 1.5 blocks to Times Square. The only glitch was our keys had to be redone on 2 separate occasions but other than that it was great.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgraded room, they are willing to if they are available.

Very nice vintage boutique, clean and neat. Great location on upscale street (fine boutique hotels and upscale University clubs.) Close to Bryant Park, the city library, Broadway and Times Square.

Rooms are small but clean. Hardwood floors are nice! The windows open and that is a good thing as you have no control over the heat. We stayed in January.

The M bar adjacent is sophisticated and plays live jazz Tues - Thurs. There is also a very nice hotel library room serving coffee 24-7.

Get a room in the back or sides for extra quietness!

And finally, you can't beat the price.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are very quiet.

We felll into the great hotel via Priceline and were pleasantly surprised. Location was awesome! Blocks to Times Square, The Rock, and Grand Central, with tons of stores and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Fabulous Greek restaurant/bar just across the street. Staff was very accomodating and friendly (even allowing for a late check out no problem!). Rooms were tiny, but clean and recently remodeled...flat screen tvs, spacious newly tiled bathroom, working desk, comfortable CLEAN bed. The hallways and elevators were extremely tiny, additionally with stairs in the front lobby. Anyone in a wheelchair or on a scooter would have an issue getting around this property.

There is no resaurant or room service at this hotel. In the mornings, they do have a gormet coffee/expresso machine which is free of charge and very nice. Too, there was also a bar that closed early, and drinks were quite pricey.

Great hotel! The location is perfect. Just steps close to the Times Square and Grand Central (metro station that conects you to everywhere). The rooms were clean and well decorated. Just dont expect cordiality from the staff, they are just professionals, unless you tip them well - and for EVERYTHING (NY Style).

Booked to stay here on New Year's Eve at an exorbitant price due to it's location. The king room we had was large enough but the corridors are very narrow. We were awoken the first night by a woman screaming in another room. Although we had prepaid for the room we found that a significant extra charge was added to our credit card. It took several calls to the hotel to sort this out and have it reversed. Not impressed at all for the price or the service. Would not recommend it as a four star hotel, there are much better options for a similar price in town.

Room Tip: Rooms are not well insulated. We were located at the back of the hotel. The dumpsters were located i...

Stayed there about two months ago. The staff was very kind to both me and my son. The rooms are rather small, but it did not bother us. It's Manhatten. The location could not be better. Would stay again for sure.
