We needed a cheap place to stay (my husband and I) on NEw Years Eve and boy did we get it. We got a room on the 3rd floor and learned w/help that there is a "trick" to unlocking the door w/the key. We finally got in the room and it was the size of a box. It smelled and...

We stayed for 5 days the first of Dec. and I pretty much have the same review as one before me titled, "St. James was just what we wanted". It is an old hotel but for the money you can't beat it. One thing I will advice you of is, if possible get a room away from the elevators, they...

We are 2 women who are flirting with 50,like to have fun, and have champagne tastes on a beer budget. We were looking for something clean, safe...

My 3 friends and I stayed at the St. James Hotel on December. After reading the reviews, we were kind of scary. Our first impression of the hotel was so pleasant. Yes, it is a budget hotel undergoing renovation. The reception girls were just so wonderful. When you get to the front desk you'll see two ladies (Margaret and Carmen),...

What do you get for $150? At the St. James, a clean new bathroom and a relatively comfortable bed in a room with little space for any other than that bed and the dresser. The staff was friendly and helpful; the lobby looked pretty good half-way through renovation. But the real value is location. Situated 1/2 a block east of...

My wife and myself stayed at the St James for three nights in mid-Decmber. After reading some of the reviews we were worried about the place but this is a busy time of year and the rooms were really cheap. However, we were given a room on the 10th floor which was a really good size. The bed linen was...

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.
