Excellent location. Spacey and comfortable room with big windows and great view. Super to rest from extensive walks through town. Perfect for shopping, dining and cultural sightseeing tours. Friendly young staff. Absolutely recommendable.

Location is excellent. Service is personal and excellent. Hotel has many amenity plusses—complimentary 5 pm drinks, complimentary Euro-style breakfast, floor-to-ceiling window views, and a mini-kitchen make it an excellent value especially as a Midtown location.

Blown away by this hotel ~ room was a great size for manhattan. Amenities were really nice ~ we enjoyed the complimentary wine/cheese hour everyday. It was the perfect way to end a busy day before meeting friends for dinner. Breakfast in the morning was good too. The 2nd floor lounge for guests only is a beautiful space and is... More

Great hotel. Very friendly staff. The facilities are well kept and the location is amazing...at least for me as our NYC office is about 8 blocks away. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only issue was a mysteriously appearing water bottle in my room. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a... More

This hotel on the surface is a modern and fresh take on NYC with friendly greetings at the front "desk" of 2 laptops on a kitchen-island table in a minimalist lobby. King room on high floor offered privacy needed for a getaway. However, clearly the appeal declined with the uncomfortable temperature hallways and elevator on a July weekend. The breakfast... More

This hotel is past Grand Central on Lexington. One of our best surprises was the lack on noise. You were not awakened by a ton of honking and sirens. The rooms were roomy and clean. Internet came with the room. The shower was awesome. You have the convenience of being by Grand Central and everything else is walkable.

Spent 3 nights in NY. The hotel is very central and made our trip! Lots of restaurants nearby and very close to lots of attractions including Central Park. Breakfast was simple but fine.

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.
