Murray Hill East Suites
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This hotel is located on a nice quiet side street. It is a 10 minute walk to Grand Central Station and within a block walking distance there is a small market, diners, corner deli, small places to eat. We had a one bedroom suite with kitchen which allowed us to eat in AND have our two teenagers in a separate room. It also had a laundry room. This was one of the largest AND economical places we looked at for our stay.
The room furnishings are dated and the mattress on the sofa bed a bit lumpy but having a separate room for the kids to hang out in was worth it.

A friend of mine and I spent a couple of nights here during our first trip to the US. I had read good things about the hotel online, which was one of the reasons I booked a room here. We were not disappointed! The price was ok and the location is great. It's only a couple of minutes away from Grand Central Terminal and if you are fit, you can walk to several other destinations in NY. If you don't feel like walking, you can get pretty much anywhere using the subway station at the GCT.

When we arrived, we got a room with a large queensize bed, which was not ideal. However, we got upgraded to a room with separate beds the day after we requested it. The staff was very friendly whenever we had any questions. The rooms are big, by the way.

The only minor disturbances were the noise from the street (if you get a room facing the street...) and the fact that they charge you for Wifi use in your room. If you want to use the free Wifi, you have to sit in the lobby.

This hotel was in a great location of the Murray Hill area of mid-town Manhattan. It is close to Grand Central Station and within walking distance to the Empire State Building. Nice, spacious suites along with a kitchenette. Our suite had a double bed and a queen sleeper sofa. Even though it is located in NYC, it was quiet at night. The beds and linens were very comfortable and we had a super experience here. There were 2 tvs and that was a nice plus as well. There is a grocery store on the next block as well as a Walgreens about 2 blocks away. Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here for about 3 nights, and I did enjoy it, but the rooms seemed rather old and run-down. However, it was still a nice place, and the kitchenette was pretty handy to have. It was not at all posh or extravagant but it was a good deal and comfortable.

Very handy to most mid Manhattan places & subway system. Hotel was presented well (although a little dated) but very comfortable. Only had one (out of 2) elevator working when we were there which was a bit annoying having to wait.Room was fine , having a kitchenette was also handy.
Recommend you get a room not facing the street due to noise from below.

I went back to Murray Hill East after 3 years. It was like coming home - to spacious comfort but noting that a renovation is sorely needed! I have stayed there various times on trips to the United Nations NYC as I travel too frequently to stay in pokey NYC hotel rooms. The spaciousness, comfort and basic amenities were all there. I booked a studio room as I had family visiting for a couple of nights and friends on the weekend- all of which meant i needed more than a hotel room. I paid 248 USD per night plus 8.95 per night for wireless. I will definitely stay there again as teh location is superb! far away from the regular tourist madness of 42nd street - but a straight bus up to teh Upper East side for meetings, 2 blocks away from Grand central station and close to several excellent restaurants including the Oyster bar at Grand central and the Nam Pang Vietnamese Sandwich shop on 41st street. For shoppers - several good stores nearby plus beauty salons and Duane Reade which i used extensively all within 2 blocks. The Pod hotel next door has an excellent rooftop bar and great lounge restaurant for tapas and drinks. The rooms show real signs of wear though and have not been renovated in over a decade. I stayed in 609 which has tow single beds and both mattresses were worn from use and I had a bit of a back ache after a couple of nights. The linen, utensils, etc all could do with replacement. I had to tussle to get the gas on every morning to heat water for my tea. Housekeeping run by two Polish women is efficient and good. All in all i would go back again for space and convenience but not expecting luxury surroundings.
