“Fun place to stay”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This place was really a fun place to stay. It is close enough to walk to many of the attractions or not a very expensive cab ride. It was clean, attractive but very small.it was family friendly and my kids loved it too. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This hotel was a great find. On my 70th birthday, my children gave me 2 tickets to Don Carlo at the Met Opera. My daughter was going with me, and although she is a frequent visitor to NYC, said I could not find a "decent" hotel in NYC for under $300 - especially on a weekday. With my senior discount I scored this hotel for under $200. It's location was actually the best part because it is about 7 minutes walking distance from the Port Authority, about 10 minutes walking to the High Line and has a gas station on the corner that services lots of available yellow cabs. We had a 10th floor room at this "GEM", which is described as an upscale Comfort Inn. (It's eligible for Choice Award Points.) It had robes in the closet, upscale amenities and a friendly and helpful staff. I highly recommend this "GEM" of an hotel in NYC.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less noise.

Dear barbdaveroanoke,
Thank you for having stayed at the GEM Hotel Midtown West while in New York City. We hope that you enjoyed Don Carlo at the MET. We like to think of ourselves as a nicely hidden away GEM. Ideally located outside the heart of New York but still close enough to all. Your review and comments mean so much to us, for that we thank you for taking the time to write them. We hope that you will be back in NYC soon, if so please mention LGEMR.
Sincerely,
Lawrence Hou

I stayed at the GEM midtown last year for the Coffee Fest at the Javit Center. The GEM is only a few block away (less than 5 min walk). I came back this year for the same thing and I had no doubt that I will come back to the GEM. I love this hotel, it's small and cozy and the front desk people are very welcoming. The service is great, the bed are SUPER comfortable and it's not noisy at all. I slept like a baby! I recommend it. I will always stay at the GEM midtown no matter where I go in NY.

I have stayed at The GEM at least once in 3 of the last 4 years. The rooms are small, but clean and nicely decorated. The hotel will loan you an iPod to use for a walking tour of the city. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will provide excellent restaurant and attraction suggestions. This might be the nearest hotel to the Javits center, and is a great value.

I stayed at the hotel on business while attending the gift show at the Javits center. The location is perfect - close to the expo center. Rooms are very small but enough for a good night sleep in Manhattan. Room was clean and bed was comfy. Would definitely stay here again on business. Staff was very friendly.
