I stayed for a week at this hotel. The room was spacious, with a small but efficient kitchenette. The hotel position is strategic for visiting New York; you can reach a lot of interesting places just on foot

Very clean, nice, spacious room. Everyone in the hotel was very friendly and attentive. Gym was reasonably ok, not too large, but clean and practical. Location is excellent, only one step away from main streets but in a not so busy street.

Room (suite with small kitchen) was excellent - large and well-planned. Location is perfect for getting around midtown, and to GC station. Only problem was that I had to pay for the internet service and the ac sounded like a jet engine in my room (couldn't have it on and sleep/watch tv at the same time.

This hotel was recommended by a friend. We had a very nice corner room which has a separate living area with a sofa bed, and the receptionist accommodated us four in it by installing a roll away bed. This saved us some money, as we had reserved two rooms thinking we would not fit in one. Although we thought it...

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.
