Well, after weeks of trying to get a hotel in New York City for under $200 a night- I stumbled on The Mayfair Hotel on Travelocity for $191.00 a night. I was thrilled to find it!! I stayed from 10\23-10\26. I had read many, many reviews of the Mayfair on "tripadvisor" and needless to say that I was a little concerned with the very mixed reviews that the hotel got form other people.
First off, there were 3 of us staying in one room. All in our late (very late!!) twenties, and all of us are very well traveled. Our room had only one double bed. (Each of us took a turn sleeping on the floor, on top af a stack of blankets). The room was very clean, but as others on this site will say it was very small. Approx. 10 x 10. But, the bathroom was huge (we kept all of our suitcases in the bathroom). We were in room 502. The decor of the room was pink toile. I felt like we were staying in a European boutique hotel.
This is a no-frills hotel, with the smallest elevator I have ever seen. Even the hallways are narrow. But, if you are like us- all we were in New York to do was shop and sight-see, This is a great place to stay. The location was perfect!! Smack in the middle of Times Square, only 2 blocks from the subway.
For me, I guess 3 things were important: Location, price, and cleanliness. The Mayfair exceeded my expectations on each on these 3 things and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
