I have been a regular for almost 20 yrs. Previously, I stayed at the Waldorf Astoria kitty corner across the street. Great comfort, excellent service, very meticulous, and warm hospitality. Chris Olthoff will always do his best to ensure a great visit.

Stayed here perhaps 10 times over the years. Very close to the business location I need to be at. Nice rooms, friendly staff and great for a business breakfast. My 1st choice when it comes to staying in New York (at my price point but if there are conferences sometimes gets very expensive).

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.
