My husband and I recently had a wonderful stay. I was impressed with the level of luxuries-Frette linens and CO Bigelow products. Next trip, we will spend even more time relaxing in the cool lounge/bar. Our stay was made complete by the hospitable staff. Will definitely return!

I work off hours frequently and typically have to make last minute arrangements for accommodations in the city. It had been some time since I stayed at the Hotel Grand Union now known only as HGU. What a transformation of this classic landmark. It was like stepping back in time to old New York with all the amenities of today.... More

My husband and I recently came to the City for our Anniversary. We had such a great experience. The room was fabulous. The bed was one of the most comfortable. And the staff was so friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel the 2nd night it opened. Lovely room with big fluffy towels and dressing gowns. In the ideal location for being a tourist in NY! Nice places to eat within walking distance. The room was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Complimentary Breakfast was slightly disappointing. There was some renovations on while... More

Had a staycation in the city with my wife and had a great experience. The service is excellent. It's like walking into a art exhibition. It's centrally located. The lounge is awesome. And that bed. Let me just say that it's one of the most comfortable beds Ive ever slept in. They even give options for pillow firmness! Great place... More

Had one of the best stays I can remember during my time at HGU. Made by true New Yorkers, HGU highlights art, events, and venues that only locals would know. Perfect location in the Nomad District, half a block from the most convenient subway line (6 train) which will take you up and down Manhattan in minutes, and across the... More

Pristine and clean, this beautifully appointed boutique hotel has it all! Our stay was amazing. From the moment we arrived and for the duration of our visit, the staff at HGU made our stay most memorable. Our room was lovely and immaculate and had Frette sheets and plush monogramed terry robes!

This hotel has just undergone a complete renovation and they've done a beautiful job. The lounge/bar area is worth the whole stay, beautiful art, great drinks, comfy couches, a perfect elegant oasis. The rooms are small but carefully put together and the staff seems eager to make sure everything goes perfectly since it just reopened. It's a very central location,... More

Loved my stay in New York - this hotel was perfect for a clean and central place to sleep. It was about 33 degrees C when we visited so we were grateful for the air con in the room. It was a bit noisy but we were so tired from our busy days that we could sleep with it on!... 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.

The striking Beaux-Arts structure that is HGU New York has welcomed countless guests since 1905. Ornate plaster ceilings tell of legendary parties and infamous patrons of old, while 89 rooms and suites offer luxury and modern convenience. Restful sleep is paired perfectly with an intoxicating art collection throughout the rooms, corridors, and living spaces; each corner a destination of possible repose or reverie. Derived from the style coveted by the leisure and business set, HGU New York awakens all senses and consistently impresses. This is not Midtown; this is NoMad. ... more   less
