We spent one night here in May and much to our dismay were told by the front desk that they had no new room to give us except an unrenovated one as they were fully booked. I had called earlier a day earlier to ask for an updated room and was told they would. I saw guests coming all through... More

Stayed over the weekend in NYC and used Wyndham as our "home base". Convenient to Grand Central for subway and Metro North commuting, with plenty of local sources for quick coffee, healthy snacks, etc. Desk staff was incredibly nice and helpful, despite being a bit behind schedule due to housekeeping shortages. Bell desk was great for holding, delivering bags. The... More

This hotel is very convenient to Grand Central Station and although relatively new already going through a removation. The rooms are nice and spacious and offer a kitchen with a nice size refrigerator, but the bathrooms are cramped. They have a TV in the bathroom yet the sink is pretty much on top of the small tub. I would rather... More

The Wyndham Midtown 45 is excellent. We are Wyndham timeshare owners and used our points for this NYC trip. We had a 1 bedroom with sleeper sofa. It was super spacious (better than any standard hotel in NYC) and offered a kitchenette with dishes, stove, microwave, dishwasher and kitchen sink. A good size bathroom and comfortable king size bed in... More

The location was perfect given that I hadn't spent much time on the east side of the island and hadn't previously been to some of the landmarks that are nearby (Times Square, Grand Central, etc.). We have two small kids, so a 1BR deluxe worked okay.

My sister and I were in the city to see "A Fiddler On the Roof", a little shopping, and some museum stops. Wyndham Midtown 45 is ideally located. It's undergoing some renovations to enlarge the lobby area ( greatly needed), two elevators , painfully slow during busy times, but the accommodations are really very comfortable and the square footage more...

Nice resort in midtown, close to time square, Broadway and all of the shopping in the area. Everything from madison square garden to central park for your enjoyment depending on your health. The resort is under construction done patient, it doesn't affect you if you're on a higher floor. All the construction we saw was in the lobby.

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.
