The Staff were very friendly and really helped make our stay enjoyable. There is a heat charge. The rooms are small but reasonable. The elevator is small, but you can use the stairs easily. Our shower was a disaster. If we did not get up early we would not have any hot water. We would have it in our sink,...

I was really pleased with this hotel. My wife and I stayed here for 5 days over NYE in Times Square. The room was very clean. The staff was quite friendly. The room was rather warm but as recommended by the staff we offset the warmth with the AC unit. It is situated right in Times Square so all of...

We had 3 nights at this hotel. There are 6 in our family so we needed 2 rooms. We had a nice stay. Staff were great. Beatrice was great from when we booked our room over 6 months ago. Always responded to our emails. Hotel is a little old and dated but we found it clean and tidy. We did...

The staff are so very helpful and friendly. But I had no internet in my room. Found roaches in my bathroom. The room otherwise was small, smelt of bleach but was not noisy given the location. Location is excellent.

This hotel not a good place to stay if you want to stay in your room all of the time! However, if you are looking for a comfortable stay while you visit the city, you are the right place! The hotel staff was wonderful all of the time. Our queen room was comfortable, though small. I like that they tell...

This is a comfortable room with friendly hotel staff who cannot do enough for you. If you are a proper tourist all you want to do is sleep and use the bathroom. This hotel ticks all the boxes would stay here again. The location is as perfect as you can get. Alright it's a little dated but it's clean and...

My partner and I stayed 7 nights at The Mayfair for our first visit to New York City. We were a little apprehensive given some of the reviews but we knew we were mainly there to sleep as we would be out and about all day/night. We really didn't have much to worry about. The room was clean and cosy....

The hotel was decent. The location was awesome, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was good. The room was extremely small and had absolutely no view but met my needs for the night. It was relatively reasonably priced given the location. The staff was friendly, though they charged me to hold my bags for the day, which I found...

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.
