Our recent 3 night stay at Hotel 48LEX was superb from start to finish. The hotel's website offers numerous specials and booking direct with them was seamless. Location is great, easy access to the subway and within walking distance to numerous restaurants and attractions. With that said, there was absolutely no street noise in our room, which is a plus...

We had a corner suite on the 17th floor, which was lovely, bright and clean and really comfortable. Nothing but positives for the accommodation. However, the breakfast (which is $20 extra and you can't opt out of paying for) is a shambles. It happens in the bar and meetings room area, so is trying to be too many different things...

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.
