Surprisingly nice hotel. No real lobby at all made me a little wary. But the staff who check you in with laptops on a table in a tiny space in front of the elevators were super nice and friendly. The room was great. Plenty of space by NYC standards. Nice shower. Very clean. Breakfast was standard fare. The doorman Jason...

Chic hotel- Most staff were great. While waiting- too long- for the lift, a short bald guy- must have been a manager/ owner by the way he held himself like royalty (I think i heard someone call him Danny) stood in front of the elevator to have a conversation, blocking people from getting on so we were lucky enough to...

A bit overpriced for the service you get. Breakfast was OK in terms of variety but staff fell behind in filling empty serving dishes for the latecomers (and I mean, not THAT late) and bringing clean tableware to the buffet. Maybe they're short on staff, I don't know but that's really not any guest's concern. You might have to wait...

I've stayed at many NYC hotels and this one ranks high on my list. The location was is centrally located and convenient to the MTA. My room faced 48th and I heard zero street noise at night. The bed was extremely comfortable, as was the well-equipped, large room. The decor is modern without being silly and overly hip. My room...

From the moment I arrived, the doorman carried my luggage to the front desk.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
