Stayed 3 nights at Mansfield in July. Arrived early Friday and asked but did not get early checkin. OK, just stowed our bags and left to explore NY.

Free lattes and lemon water was so appreciated. It is what a weary New York traveller really needs.

Room is small, but really clean. Nice wood floors. We faced 44th street - luckily.
Maid forgot soap and bath towel. Housekeeping delivered it promptly to me in the morning. Crisis averted.

Bed was comfortable and had really nice sheets.

Bathroom was small but functional. The Kohler fixtures and Philosophy bath products were a nice luxury touch.

The location is SUPERB. Next to spiffy & clean 5th avenue, and close to Bryant Park. I've stayed dozens of times in NY, but this location was excellent. At midday, we could come back to the hotel to recharge before heading out for round two.

Location felt safe, even after returning from Broadway at 11:00pm.

I'd definitely choose Mansfield again.

A HAPPY stay.

Room is small even by NY standards. There was no natural light in the room, even in the middle of the day. On sunny day the room was dark with their lighting. Moldy smell we had to have corrected. The wood floors made it easy to see dust in corners. Bathroom had beven nicely remodeled. Bed was very comfortable.

We booked a 'secret hotel' through Hotwire and we were pleasantly surprised to receive The Mansfield. We booked for 2 adults and 1 child expecting 2 queen beds in the room but we were again pleasantly surprised to find our room was actually a Junior Suite! The front desk staff were friendly and efficient and Robert the Concierge was helpful and knowledgeable about our room and surroundings. Our room was opposite the elevators (a pet peeve) but Robert assured us that they wouldn’t disturb us, nor would the street noise, and he was right. Our only issue with the room was the noisy air conditioners but we simply turned them off overnight; problem solved and it did not detract from our stay. As others have mentioned, yes, the hotel is old with narrow stairs, dark hallways and dark rooms but that is all part of the charm of an old but tastefully refurbished hotel. The Mansfield is conveniently located within a few short minutes walk of Grand Central, the NY Public Library and Bryant Park, Times Square, the Rockefeller Centre and 5th Ave. There is free wifi in the lobby library as well as free lemon water, tea and coffee. A great hidden gem!

This hotel was perfectly located in NYC - 5 minute walk away from Times Square, located between 5th and 6th ave with many convenient stores and restaurants. Neighbourhood felt safe at all times, easy to get to metro stations. Hotel was tastefully decorated, the room was very comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly. Cute lobby room that looks like a small library with free wifi. No complaints! Definitely will rebook this place when I come back to NYC.

Excellent position in the Theater district. Close to 5th Avenue for the shopping. Close to 2 main subway stations. Many landmarks were reachable on foot as well. Though the concierge was not very knowledgeable, in general personnel was very helpful in giving us directions and information.
Complimentary tee or coffee (machine made) in the library, was really appreciated.
I would have like the WiFi connection in the room.
