This discreet hotel is the one I always recommend for people to stay in when they come: we had the best of times there, perfect service from the staff and the guest relation manager, who was attentive and always looking to help us!

well trained staff, great location, good option for midtown east. everything is steps away and easy access to the subways and all of the attractions that New York has to offer. Restaurants , Broadway, Clubs and the area is not so crazy busy that you cant catch a Cab. prime spot for New Your travel.

This hotel is a block from my office in Park Avenue and was a total surprise! Loved the spaciousness and decor. Serviceable kitchen area/nook. Wine selection - which I didn't try but loved to know was there - included bottles I select and buy at home. Comfortable bathroom with excellent lighting. Very important for make-up. I would stay here again!!

Took a stab in the dark when booking for our family vacation. What a pleasant surprise! Starting with a pleasant welcome at the door, 48Lex did not disappoint. Room was spotless, well equipped, and QUIET. Euro Breakfast was well presented with a lovely, knowledgeable, barista. The first floor bistro served distinctive, well presented menu items.

I like staying in the Mid-town east area, and this fits the bill on that score. The hotel is fairly new, so the rooms are modern and updated. Size of the room was about average for New York.

It's comfortable and well located. However: Mandatory +$40 a day fee per room for a breakfast (which is served up until 9 am, yeah- 9 am) and afternoon wine (5-6 pm) gatherings. One day we got to the afternoon wine gathering at 6:10. I asked if I could get a spare sip - nope, no you can't. Fine, whatever. Breakfast... 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.
