“Enchanting Midtown Getaway”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

The Setai Fifth Avenue certainly exceeds the expectations. From the elegant decor to the fantastic service, this hotel is the prime choice for a mid-town stay. The rooms are spectacular, the staff is friendly and consistently goes above and beyond to make your stay the best possible experience. The food in the restaurant is spectacular, and their lounge provides a tranquil space while still providing a view of the city streets. My bartenders in particular, a girl named Emily and a fellow named Vinnie made certain my experience felt personal. I could not have felt more pampered and could not consider using another hotel after this experience.

Excellent staff (they remembered our names from the moment our family walked in). Our original suite was overbooked, so we ended up in a much nicer suite (no complaints here). Extremely convenient location to Fifth Avenue shopping, restaurants, and subway system. Use the concierge, they worked magic throughout our entire stay. Regardless of whether we needed tickets, or merely a ride, the staff would go out of their way to make sure we were happy. Honestly will have trouble staying at any other hotel in the NYC area. Room service was superb. One of our family members forgot their toothbrush. We called downstairs and within 3 minutes, we had four.

For those who stay at this hotel, there's always a chance at a celebrity sighting. Our hotel neighbor happened to be Jamie Foxx, who was staying during his Django Unchained promotional tour.

I stayed at the Setai for 3 nights last week, as my company reserved a block for us. Although the hotel is not near Lincoln Center, which is where we shuttled to every day, I found the hotel to be a true gem. I have stayed at countless hotels in NYC and this is by far the best value. Loved the spacious rooms, modern furnishings and all the free offerings (mini bar, cookies, Internet, pressing). Regina/Chris in sales stayed all night to help coordinate my guests, and Brian/Matt/Louis from the front desk could not have been nicer. The door men were amazing- they assisted our last-minute transport needs with grace, special thank you to Joe, Mike and the security team. My boss is very hard to impress and he has already mentioned he would like to book again next year.

Just returned from a 4 day/3 night long weekend in NYC with wife and two (late teenage) sons. We stayed at The Setai and loved it. The rooms are surprisingly large for NY and beautifully appointed. All the staff were outstanding in their courtesy and helpfulness and the location is pretty good too!

A few tips:

* We all preferred to take breakfast in our rooms. For some reason it was just a better experience than the restaurant.

* Do use the concierge for tickets, restaurant and visitor recommendations. Everything they suggested worked perfectly and they enhanced our stay hugely.

* Don't be afraid to walk and when I say walk I mean stroll. Take your time, look around and you'll be surprised how easy it is to get to places on foot. Empire State Building is insanely close by, Madison Square Garden a short walk beyond that. Rockerfeller Center, Broadway and Times Square make an easy and fun circular route and you can stroll up 5th Avenue to Central Park and beyond quite easily.

* Subways are a nightmare to find if you're used to the clear signposting in London or Paris but once you done it once or twice you'll get the hang of it. The Setai is no more than a block or two in any direction from the subway.

* Taxis are a law unto themselves. You have been warned.

So....The Setai is just about as good as you can get in Mid-Town and every one of us would go back in an instant if we could. Enjoy!

Room Tip: 11th floor rooms on the Avenue side (1103 for example) have a broad wide, shared, terrace with a wit...

Just had four wonderful nights at this hotel, door men Mike & Joe through to the manager Brian all great people, and really know how to make a guest feel welcome, simply cannot do enough for you. The bar on ground floor great fod and try the local Beer. Unfortunately the bar on the second floor needs to take some lessons on how it's managed as service was awful and staff only became busy and helpful when you asked for the bill - obviously wanting a tip ! This was the only part of the whole hotel that a member of staff did not get a tip !

Stayed at The Setai for a special company program. The hotel is beautiful, modern, clean. The rooms are very large for a Manhattan standard, the bathroom is simply astonish. The hotel is on Fifth Avenue, one block from the Empire State Building.

Yes -the hotel if great, the rooms and bathroom are really lovely, the bar is wonderful, the staff are friendly and the service pretty much impeccable. But at nearly £400 a night for a view of other walls and windows, it ain't cheap. I think I got the "he's booked through Expedia so let's give him a really nice room with a really poor view" treatment. Not a huge problem as I spent most of the weekend exploring. Their location can't be faulted and nor can the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the service. They also let me have a late checkout on a Sunday afternoon - a sign of a hotel that is truly focused on service in my opinion - my thanks to them. Overall, it's a great place to stay in NY.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms with numbers in the low teens - the view is terrible!
