The hotel is small, and the staff was great!! The rooms were spacious, modern, and clean. There is a small sitting room that some guests like to gather in, and there is also a TV there. WIFI was included in the room price.

Great central hotel. Has all the basics with a touch of class & luxury. Great value for money. Bathroom is shared but, having stayed here twice, I've never been caught out meeting someone in the corridor wearing a bathrobe, or even found it engaged. It's right next door to our room and complimentary robes & slippers are provided. Staff are... More

Hotel was nice and clean. Friendly staff, brilliant (free) wifi and about 15 minute walk to times square. Our room was on the 5th floor, it was the smallest room on the floor which we were quite annoyed with. It was absolutely tiny......smallest room I have ever stayed in in my life. Shared bathrooms were okay, there was never a... More

We had such a nice stay at the Seton. The staff were very accommodating, and the location couldn't be beat, especially at this price point. Very reasonable. The only down side is the noise from the neighbors. It's an old building and not well soundproofed. Unfortunately, we had some fairly inconsiderate neighbors. (There's no good reason to be having loud... More

Well I over pay for this one for sure,I walked in my room and automatically realize I have to share bathroom with other guests. .. A big deal breaker for me,at that moment I nicely call front desk and all I got was a nasty answer about no getting a room with a bathroom ,We'll lesson learn.

Close to the busstation for the airport bus that will take you to Newark. Nice common siting area, friendly staff, clean room, but small and gloomy, - I had expected more for my 175 dollars (march 2016) a night, so if you go , get a better price than mine.

We stayed for 7 nights. All the staff are super friendly and really helpful, suggesting places to eat and visit. We had a shared bathroom which was always clean and tidy, there were no problems at all. Britney arranged my partner some birthday cupcakes to be delivered to the room. Central location with metro stations close by. Deffonataly stay here... More

Stayed in this hotel on our honeymoon. The location is great, a couple of minutes from Grand Central Station. The rooms are small but sufficient; when in New York, there's so much to do that a hotel room is mostly a place to leave bags and to sleep. Unfortunately the cleaning staff threw out some of our toiletries, so I... More

Lovely hotel near Grand Central station. Staff really nice, friendly and helpful. Very modern and clean. Free coffee 6-11am, would have liked in room. Easy walking distance to most places or to underground. Local cafe delivered very good value room service.

The hotel is comfortable, and a great base for exploring the area - very close to Empire State Building and Grand Central Station. Everyone was really friendly, polite and helpful. The free WiFi was excellent, and tea & coffee in a morning was a nice touch. Our room was quite small but we were out most of the time, so... More

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.
