“All in all not a bad deal.”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We booked this hotel for an overnight for the weekend after Christmas. The city was crazy busy but the hotel is in a much quieter part of the city which is kind of nice. We went out for a nightcap and there aren't a lot of hip/cool places to find within a short walk. However the old Palm restaurant is right there and that has some great old city history. The hotel is super convenient to Grand Central which means easy access to a lot of transportation. Parking was right next door and was not a deal killer (even with a SUV, which adds about $13 more).

The room was about what you would expect; small, but by NY standards pretty good. We paid extra for a view room but we were stuck on 17th floor north side and frankly the view was disappointing. The bedsheets and duvets were very comfortable and as far as I am concerned, that means a lot. The bed was a little soft for my taste.

Front desk staff was pleasant. The service was good: when we asked for addition sheets they were delivered quickly by a kind and smiling staff member. Breakfast and dining room were as one would expect from a Hampton in anywhere in the country. Not much. If you are looking for a cool new chique hotel this is not the place. The lobby is small and very underwhelming. The hallways, are compact and unattractive but so what.

I will probably book elsewhere next time just for a change of pace, but if you are quoted a good rate do not be afraid to take it.

Room Tip: Higher up west side view is probably good for Chrystler, east view is of UN and river, south don...

Location, price, breakfast, room, clean, service = great!! Checking in was really quick and easy. Front desk knew the surrounding area for directions and suggestions. They only have 2 elevators and 21 floors, the elevator wait can be a little long - but worth it!

This is a boutique style hotel in the center of Manhattan. Its location is so perfect for business, restaurants, sightseeing. The rooms were very nice. The staff was very friendly. The rate was reasonable. I would return to this hotel.

Visited NYC for the Holidays with family. This is a great find of a hotel. Better priced than the Time Square hotels, but still very close to all major tourist attractions. Some good, causal restaurants and a CVS within a short walking distance which is great for families. Very nice and helpful staff. Standard Hampton breakfast. Rooms are small, but it's Manhattan.

This is worth considering because it includes breakfast and the parking is not as high as other hotels. Breakfast in convenient and offers variety. The staff is efficient. However, the rooms are extremely small but clean. The noise from running water in other rooms is annoying. It's difficult to get the elevator during check out time and there is only one luggage cart.

Excellent location right by Grand Central! Our room was new and clean and the front desk friendly and helpful. The only thing I did not like was the bathroom door. It is a sliding door that did not offer a lot of privacy. I think they used this style door because of the room size but it did not close completely and a pocket door may have been a better choice. I would stay there again but only with a close family member.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights right after Christmas. The room was clean and quiet. The hotel staff was very friendly. The location is fantastic. It is just a block and a half from Grand Central Terminal, which connects you to subway trains that can take you anywhere you need to go. You also can walk to many attractions, because it is in midtown. At the same time, you are away from the chaos of Times Square. The breakfast was a typical breakfast for this type of hotel, but it was enough to start the day and save some money.

The cons are what you would expect -- the room was expensive (although fairly priced given the other NY options) and small (the king bed dominated our room). I don't fault the hotel for either of those aspects -- you just need to be prepared for it if you are traveling to NY from out of town. If you expect a typical hotel room, you will be disappointed.

The breakfast line and the wait for the elevator got a little long during peak times, but that was a minor inconvenience. Again, you just need to expect things like that when you travel to NY.

Overall, we would definitely stay here again.
