Busy days surrounded by traffic and crowds could have been more overwhelming, but the staff and accomodations helped us relax. We loved having breakfast included and there were tons of options from fresh fruit to oatmeal to eggs and bacon. It was a extra treat to have a hot chocolate bar in the lobby :)

We stayed here for a week as a family of four and we enjoyed the location. A few minutes walk and we were at the Rockefeller Center or at Grand Central Station. We were able to walk to many attractions or hop on the subway to the rest. The rooms were smaller than we had expected, but very comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful regarding restaurant recommendations and other attractions. The gym was compact, but adequate with a good selection of equipment. I always managed to find it quiet when I did my morning workout. The complimentary breakfast was a hectic affair! Get there early if you want to sit with your companions. There was a good selection of hot and cold food - some of this was changed/rotated on a daily basis, but the waffles and cereals were always constant. All in all, a good location, away from the hustle and bustle but central enough to be in the thick of things within a few minutes. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a high floor and you won't suffer from any street noise.

Unobtrusively located on 48th between Lexington and Third, this unassuming but modern facility has everything you need to have a comfortable stay in the City. The rates are New York, but just a little more affordable than in the bright lights district. The free breakfast is generous and quite tasty. Next door, The Seafire Grill provides excellent room service at a reasonable (NYC) price. The rooms have Marriott bedding, an up to date feel, and the solidity of a well-constructed hotel: solid doors, nice furnishings, clean everything. And with a nice kitchenette, you can feel you are saving on expenses that way.

Great service. Hotel very clean, staff nice. Stayed in the room with balcony - very large room for NYC. Recently remodeled - great decor and feel.
The only think - I wish there was a restaurant in the hotel with kitchen opened past 11pm. Strangely, happened to be a problem to find a place in that area with kitchen opened after 11pm when our show ended.

BRAND NEW HOTEL, ROOM ARE CLEAN WITH A BRAND NEW SMELL. Thet are very small but cozy. Bathroom is very small but enough. Service is good, people at the front desk are helpful and nice. Breakfast is included, very good and tasty like all Residence Inn. But the last day we saw a mice in the breakfast área. I think this is very común in NY.
