You seriously could hear people having crazy sex since the walls were so thin while you were laid on that tiny double-bed whilst observing the dust layer behind the chair as the cleaners aparently did not move it. Great location, in the heart of manhattan.

Stayed here countless times and it's the cheapest place that's in this location so you really get what you pay for. The location is the main selling point of this place as it's right off time square. The hotel itself is a outdated and in need of a bit of TLC. This place could be fantastic if it was to...

Location is good. Price is fair. Room is dated but ok. Room was clean. Staff was not very freindly. Food was ok but prices seemed too high for quality. Outlets were sagging and would not hold plugs- very cheap and simple fix for hotel. Average at best.

The only good thing was the location , front desk was terrible, they dont know how to work in a hospitality at all, they charge the wifi (it's really price) , don't have room service , there is a strip club close to ground floor. Room was terrible , disgusting I would say. They were renewing the whole floor, hated...

This hotel was our only go-to on my first visits to NYC. Their service is poor due to the fact that they have very little staffing. You have to go in line to get your room cleaned in case you mention you want housekeeping, because it's not something they offer on a daily basis. During one of our visits my...

Firstly, this hotel is located right in the heart of Times Square and to us it was perfect as well as the price. There is no doubt that the hotel needs a lot of improvement, but if your in New York to sleep, then please don't pick this place as the rooms are not up to date in terms of...

The Carter is in a good location for exploring Manhattan. The hotel has some classic architecture and features which is different from many NY hotels I've stayed in. The rooms also had some classic features especially the bathrooms. Although the room I stayed could do with a refurbishment. My main issue with the hotel was the flimsy walls and the...

I visited this hotel in February. the room was warm and this was a very good point for this season. Everything was ok and in the future i will visit it again. The location is the best, very closed to time square. Very good value for money

We stayed here twice simply because of the location. It is 30 seconds from times square which is excellent. The price is cheap but the rooms reflect the price. It is warm and quiet and close so couldn't argue. It's run down. The house keeping is terrible but it really doesn't matter. It's a place to rest and nothing more....

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
