Reviewed 15 January 2014

This hotel is centrally located. Large rooms with a kitchenette. Excellent bedding and friendly staff. We have chosen it as a much better alternative to the dusty Waldorf and were happy with it. Great value for this area.

The hotel is excellent, in heart of Manhattan. We were upgraded with a apartment which was a nice surprise. The staff is very good, especially the concierge. The room was great, very clean and with a very good bad. The hotel gives the feeling of the typical, old-style New York flare. Excellent value for price.

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.
