My husband and I just got home from staying at the Mayfair for 2 nights. We would definitely stay there again. As some reviewers have mentioned, the rooms aren't huge, but were comfortable enough for us. We had a king room on the street side, and as one might imagine, it could get pretty noisy, but we had planned ahead...

I stayed at the Mayfair 3 nights in November 2007. Although my company paid full price, the room I was given was a "bit" and I mean just a bit larger than the bed itself! The staff was not helpful with any questions I had regarding local places to eat or other attractions. They were just not friendly, I mean...

This was my first trip to NYC, I've read read so many horror stories about $100USD accomodation but couldn't afford much more - so took the tripadvisor steer. I was pleasantly surprised. The location is perfect for a first trip to NYC - 2 blocks from Times Square, short stroll to 42nd street, etc. Ok, die-hard New Yorkers will tell...

I have stayed at the Mayfair about 8 or 9 times over the past five years. I travel to NYC from Houston often. I usually go alone and find that I feel very safe at the Mayfair. The front desk has always made me feel comfortable coming in late and any time I need something. The location could not be...

What an amazing little find! Well within walking distance of all the theaters and Times Square. Our room was a double, and that was about it, a double bed but assuredly the MOST comfortable bed we have slept in for a l o n g time. The room was VERY clean and seemed newly renovated. Not a ton of room,...

I was a little nervous about going to this hotel, but I trusted the reviews and pics on this site and was not disappointed. I went with realistic expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Yes the room was small, but it was very clean and charming. The bathroom was very nice, though the hot water was HOT, so turn the cold...

Al though location is great and the price is lower than most local hotels in or near Times Square, it is old with almost no amenities. The room w/King size bed was extremely small, no internet working properly in your room, elevator broken down often, no cafe in the hotel, No full length mirror or lotions available.

The staff was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The location was within walking distance of all the Broadway theaters, Times Square, and great restaurants. Bathroom very modern and always spotless. Room small but acceptable. BUT... the elevator broke two different nights! (84 steps to room—every time.) Door lock malfunctioned twice (each time we had to wait while the front desk...

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.
