The place was great. It has an awesome location. It's right in the middle of Time's Square. There's a subway entrance about a block away. There's plenty of good restaurants and ars nearby. The place looks newly remodeled. Our room was very nice. Neicely done restroom and nicely done room. Very clean and plenty of towels. It looked as if...

This hotel is great for its location. However, it is definitely a no frills hotel. It was fine for what we needed it for, a place to sleep. The beds however were comfortable and our room was quiet. I think once all of the restoration is done, it will be a better place to stay. If you are only going...

I was worried due to seeing pictures over the internet and some of the reviews but Magaret the Hotel Manager did inform me of the renovations.

I took my family to NYC and wanted a place as close as possible to Times Square. I read the reviews and knew that the St. James was a risk but decided to take that risk. That was one of the worst mistakes I've ever made in family travel. We had talked to the hotel staff for weeks about the...

We (4 of us) arrived at the Hotel St. James (also listed as the St. James Hotel) just after 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, 2005. Its location is 109 W. 45th Street in mid-town Manhattan. They have recently undergone some renovations according to their website. Even so, it is not handicap accessible -- one needs to go up 3-4...

if all you want is qutie a comfortable bed and a shower that's luke warm most of the time then this is fine. The reception was small but staffed and the staff seemed fairly helpful. Our room, a double double bed room, was ok in size. The beds were comfortable. The bath unit needed a thorough clean and the towels...

My wife and I visited NYC last weekend, looking for a cheap hotel, was very hard to do. This hotel on cost about $120/night, less than a block from 45th/Broadway/Times Square. True, the hotel is being renovated, and we got a renovated room. It looked clean, new bathroom and furniture. Lamp didn't work and window wouldn't close, but they fixed...

We stayed five nights at the Hotel St. James in Times Square. Expedia should be ashamed, advertising this hotel as something it definitely is not. Relying on the hotel to provide a description of the premises, Expedia advertises this hotel to be a 2-star hotel with a restaurant that provides room service and cable/satellite TV, a concierge desk, a smoke-free...

This hotel is perfect if you want somewhere with a great location and are stuck to a strict budget. It is right in the heart of Times Square and has a superb Deli just next door. The price is great, hence why you won't get many amenities. If you want a telephone that works(who you're gonna call beats me!) and...

I didn't like giving this hotel - and I use that term loosely - a 'terrible' rating just because of its fantastic location, but I could not say it was 'OK, but some problems'. It has lots of problems. My first clue that we had made a mistake was the plexiglass enclosure they use in lieu of the normal lobby...

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.
