This is well located to walk to much of New York and only a short distance to Central Station to catch the subway. Make sure you choose rooms at the back of the hotel as they are quieter than the front. The window-located air conditioning units are noisy and the rooms are quite compact, but clean and comfortable.

Small room. Renovated small bathroom. Noisy AC. Good location with easy access to Grand Central and some attractions. No fridge or safe in the room. Helpful staff. Luggage storage available. Good restaurants around.

My daughter and I had 36 hours to spend in NYC and chose the Seton for the price and location. We will go back in the future for the service and the style! Brittany was so very helpful upon our arrival, gave us great advice of what to do to see all that we could in our short stay. It...

Not easy to find a cheap and acceptable hotel in New York, but if you look for a bed and a shower in Midtown Manhatten, Seton Hotel is definitely one to look out for. Only minus we found was too narrow bed for two, however sleeping on the floor was not that bad. Location is perfect for anything in NY.

Thank you so much for your kind recommendation. If you want a larger bed all you have to do is book a room with a queen size bed next time.

Great experience at the Seton Hotel! It was a 2 minute walk from Grand Central, very clean and the rooms were adorable. The staff was friendly and kept our bags at no charge the following day. I will definitely be staying here again!

The hotel is great for a NY stay when you just use it to sleep at nights. Bedrooms are comfortable and people at front desk very polite and helpful. The shared bathroom was my great worry but I have to say that it was clean every time I wanted to use it and never saw other people coming in or...

I didn't enjoy my stay at Seton. Couple of issues to note: extremely dirty carpets, loud A/C unit, paper thin walls. I could hear the girls next door talking and using the hair dryer - couples, you've been warned. The TV only has a few channels (under 20, some with distorted quality). If you only plan to sleep in the...

I had doubts and I thought that I would get an average place for the cheap price. However Seton hotel is extremely great value for money. It is new and modern. I feel safe here and the staff are wonderful. I bought a bottle of wine and did not have a corkscrew. The staff had one delivered to my room....

I just got back home from a week spent at the Seton Hotel. I can only give positive impressions of my time spent there. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the location was convenient to all midtown Manhattan locations. There were a myriad of options for dining and entertainment nearby, and if Times Square appeals, it was an...

Great value for money, highly recommend this hotel! Booked a last minute overnight stay for my first night in NYC for only USD$80 and the hotel is in a fantastic location - within walking distance to all the main sights in midtown Manhattan (Chrysler building, Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, United Nations, New York Public Library etc.).

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.
