Large, comfortable, well-appointed room, especially for a NYC hotel. Even had a small balcony. Excellent staff and service. A very pleasant, high quality, professionally run hotel. I would definitely stay there again, and would recommend it highly.

Always is a pleasure to stay here...clean, nice rooms, friendly staff, great location. The only drawback might be the two very slow very small elevators. At checkout time, the cue time is forever. Well worth the cost.

This hotel is centrally located. Large rooms with a kitchenette. Excellent bedding and friendly staff. We have chosen it as a much better alternative to the dusty Waldorf and were happy with it. Great value for this area.

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.
