“A great functional and comfortable place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to make your base to explore the City of New York. Room was small but very comfortable. After a busy day exploring you need a good shower and good nights sleep. Our room delivered both and the hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant.

This place was perfect. I just needed a place to sleep while getting my son settled in college and i could not have asked for better. I had an economy room and it was clean, the bathroom that was shared was perfect, never dirty and i never had to wait. I would stay there again. The front desk was a big help and the staff very friendly. I have stayed in many hotels in NYC and paid crazy amounts but this one, located just a few blocks from grand central - perfect. Can't wait to go back and kudos to the staff for being so accomdating and helpful.

This is a wonderful "Boutique" type hotel in mid-town New York City. The staff are very friendly and helpful and our room was small but stylishly furnished and spotlessly clean. We had a shared bathroom which was great - just a few steps away from the room with a lovely big shower, wash basin & toilet. This was also extremely clean. Our room had a very comfortable Queen size bed and a wash basin in the room with big fluffy towels and bathrobes. The hotel also has a very nice lounge to relax in after a hard day pounding the streets! Tea & coffee are available without charge. Lots of great places to eat & drink nearby too.

This was our second visit to New York and after having stayed at the Seton, I would recommend it in a heartbeat. Looking forward to staying here again in the near future.

Great little hotel within walking distance of Grand Central station, 15 mins from Times Sq, Rockefeller Centre, Macy's, St Patricks Cathedral. Very helpful reception staff, coffee and tea 24 hours, transport arranged to Airport, price quoted 65$ to cover tips and tolls. We gave him a tip on top but he also claimed tolls on top even though he went through Queens and as far as I could make out did not go through any tolls. Check price with cabbie before you leave. Would go back there.

We stayed here at the end of Sept-start of Oct and have no complaints. Our room was small but lovely and had everything we needed, including a TV and hair dryer. Room was spotless, was cleaned everyday. Bathroom was perfect. Staff were always helpful. Free wifi in the room was a massive plus for us. You could also use in the lobby too as they provide a computer and iPad. Free tea and coffee was available in the lobby. They had a lounge (which we just happened not to use) but it looked very comfy. The hotel itself is very secure and the lift is cool! Lol!

Now the most important part, the location. This hotel is located in the best possible location in New York City. It's a 3 min walk to Grand Central Station (where you can get a train to anywhere!). Around a 15/20 walk to the Empire State, the Rockerfeller centre, Times Square, Central Park etc. There are a couple of small convenience stores which open 24 hours located on the corners (min walk).

Overall the perfect hotel for a perfect trip to NYC. I would recommend to all.
