Great place to stay near everthing in theatre district. We were celebrating girls trip and a b' day. We read all the reviews and picked a room in the back. Good choice. Rooms are contemporary and comfortable. We walked most places and Rockefeller center for concert series on Today show. Only complaint for us was doors to rooms slammed upon... More

Upon arrival, I was stunned by the beautiful decor of the Hotel. The lobby looks amazingly beautiful it seems like it was recently renovated. Check in was fast and easy. But the elevators are very slow. We walked into our room and realized they made a mistake with our reservation. We requested double beds and got room with one double... More

Tiny room and bathroom even by NY hotel standards but nicely appointed, comfortable and quiet. Really not bad for a three star. However the big issue is the elevator. It took me 20 minutes to come down from the 5th floor to check out. I couldn't walk with my luggage. The elevators are tiny, extremely slow and not enough for... More

Gave the hotel four stars because the service was prompt and associates friendly. The room is compact with one king and two bunk beds and a small bathroom. Good enough for a short stay. There was a problem with the bathroom sink and after reporting it, a technician came withing 5 minutes and problem resolved. Also one of the bunk... More

We were in NY to see @Hamilton on Broadway. This hotel is within walking distance to just about everything. Great Location! But I give this hotel 5 stars for the level of hospitality and service shown to us by the bell desk for how they handled our luggage and for hailing a taxi when needed. I especially want to recognize... More

Stayed at the hotel for 7 nights in a standard queen room. Check in and check out were very brisk and I was a little surprised to have to pay $125 deposit (by credit card) to cover any possible charges that may occur during our stay (hopefully this will be refunded) The room itself was very small but functional (could...

Overall disappointing. As a regular traveller to New York I usually stick to the same hotels but was lured by the price of the Gallivant. What I thought was a good deal combined with the location led me to cancel my other hotel and book this one. Unfortunately however my booking was cancelled by the hotel less than 24 hours... More

StAyed for 5 days. In a really good location for Times Square , Bus station etc. The front of house is pretty funky, once in the corridors upstairs , the decor attempts to be modern , but just makes the place dark. The in room AC is old and noisy. NYC is noisy outside too, unfortunately this translates 24/7 into... More

Found this hotel when my husband and I had to stay last minute in NYC. It was a great convenient location close to Times Square. The hotel can barely be noticed from the street but it is modern and updated inside. The only issue is that the rooms and hallways are very tiny and there is a very annoying "urban... 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.
