“Friendly staff, comfy beds, great location,but a bit noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stayed here on our second visit to NYC for our 10th anniversary on 14 feb 2013. Our travel agent sent an email to advise the hotel of our anniversary, but nothing was mentioned to us!
We found the staff very polite & helpful & the hotel was clean. The beds were so comfy, but the room we had was 304 & it's bay window faced onto 44th street, it also had a vent and this made it very noisey at night. Walls were a bit thin, as all we could here in next room was some horrible guy coughing his guts up all the time. We would consider using this hotel again, although we would ask for a quieter room.

Room Tip: Not facing on to 44th street!

This is a no-frills boutique hotel that couldn't be better situated to midtown Manhattan.

The advantages: location, location, location! Short walk to Times Square, 5th Ave., Broadway, and subway stops. Clean hotel with an outstanding, friendly, helpful, responsive staff. (These folks could staff a 5-star hotel.) Surprisingly well-outfitted gym for its size. Free wifi throughout the hotel. Comfortable beds & low noise make for a great night sleep. Stunning bathroom - large tile room with a walk-in shower than could probably accommodate 6 people. Good restaurant. Ridiculously affordable hotel - one of the best bargains you'll find in NYC. They could charge more just based on location.

The disadvantages: The rooms are small and dark, mainly because the woodwork (including hardwood floors) is dark. There is almost no way to make the room seem bright. Between that and there being no free TV channels, it's not a room you want to spend time in. But this is NYC, and you should get off your can and out of your hotel room anyway!

Bottom line: I would recommend staying here.

Great stay overnight this week at the Mansfield -- my second time staying there. Large room with a queen bed, bay window with a window seat, plenty of room to move around, and adequate closet space. Small but spotlessly clean bathroom. Love the size of the hotel. Appreciated the dust-free hard wood floors, free shoe shine, and helpfulness of everyone on the staff. Requested and received room not overlooking 44th St., which can be noisy. Diner on 44th St. provides large, reasonably priced breakfast.

The staff was great the rooms were a little small but quite adequte and well decorated. The location was perfect as it was 1.5 blocks to Times Square. The only glitch was our keys had to be redone on 2 separate occasions but other than that it was great.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgraded room, they are willing to if they are available.

Very nice vintage boutique, clean and neat. Great location on upscale street (fine boutique hotels and upscale University clubs.) Close to Bryant Park, the city library, Broadway and Times Square.

Rooms are small but clean. Hardwood floors are nice! The windows open and that is a good thing as you have no control over the heat. We stayed in January.

The M bar adjacent is sophisticated and plays live jazz Tues - Thurs. There is also a very nice hotel library room serving coffee 24-7.

Get a room in the back or sides for extra quietness!

And finally, you can't beat the price.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are very quiet.

We felll into the great hotel via Priceline and were pleasantly surprised. Location was awesome! Blocks to Times Square, The Rock, and Grand Central, with tons of stores and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Fabulous Greek restaurant/bar just across the street. Staff was very accomodating and friendly (even allowing for a late check out no problem!). Rooms were tiny, but clean and recently remodeled...flat screen tvs, spacious newly tiled bathroom, working desk, comfortable CLEAN bed. The hallways and elevators were extremely tiny, additionally with stairs in the front lobby. Anyone in a wheelchair or on a scooter would have an issue getting around this property.

There is no resaurant or room service at this hotel. In the mornings, they do have a gormet coffee/expresso machine which is free of charge and very nice. Too, there was also a bar that closed early, and drinks were quite pricey.

Great hotel! The location is perfect. Just steps close to the Times Square and Grand Central (metro station that conects you to everywhere). The rooms were clean and well decorated. Just dont expect cordiality from the staff, they are just professionals, unless you tip them well - and for EVERYTHING (NY Style).
