We booked a premier corner suite and, although predictably, the bedroom wasn't quite as spacious as the photo had suggested, the rest of the space was phenomenal! My husband snores, so while I love to be away with him, I dread the sleepless nights, but here, I could slink off to the sitting room and put the TV on low...

We booked a corner suite with floor to ceiling windows, giving us spectacular views of Manhattan. Loved the atmosphere, ambiance, and the central location of the hotel.

From the superior service to the comfortable rooms, I was very pleased with my recent stay.

NYC is an expensive place and Hotel 48Lex does not deviate from that idea. The balcony suite with parking was about $6000 CAD for a week in October 2016. The balcony was a very good size and was nice to have for coffee in the morning or winding down at night. The suites are on the fourth floor so with...

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.
