We expected the room to be teeny-tiny, but it was fine and spotlessly clean. Our room had 2 full beds and a bunk bed (for my 18 and 19 yr old sons). Not much privacy, but definitely not too small. There was a desk, dresser drawer, large screen TV (which could only be viewed from the bunks and 1 of...

I'll start by saying it's a shame for the 1 star because I was prepared to give a detailed review and I even took some pics to share but after returning home and trying to contact them with regard to an item left behind and receiving nothing back, forget it. I'm not prepared to review a hotel when they don't...

You can't go wrong at this hotel. We were one block from Times Square for less than $125 a night are you kidding me! Hotel was clean, front staff were great, room was big enough for a full size bed, desk and two end tables and no view. Did I mention the price, this is the best hotel for your...

Amazing location, we got a bargain for what we paid for the room. The hotel and and room were very clean. The room was very compact, smaller than we expected, as was the bathroom. However the air con worked great, the bed was comfortable, there were plenty of plug sockets, and the shower was great. Actually great value for money.

Not a bad place to stay in Times Square. Really convenient location. Friendly staff. But, here is where it gets negative - This place is on 48th St, which seems to be heavily traveled throughout the day and evening and there is a firehouse at the corner of 8th and 48th, so you have to deal with the noise from...

Ignore any rubbish reviews, just about to check out and have to say hotel has been absolutely ideal for our stay. Been in 10th floor with balcony to sit out on. Very clean room- bed comfy - iron and board also safe in room. Yards from Times Square- within walking distance of 98% of sights. Really cannot fault this hotel....

After reading some of the reviews on here I was extremely apprehensive about our booking and considered changing to another hotel. So pleased we never!

If all or part of your visit is to go to the theater, this is an ideal choice. Within a block of the TKTS day of show ticket booths on Times Square, what could be better? Look for off season deals to get best value. It's a fairly noisy location, especially since a fire station is just down the block...

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.
