I was really worried after reading reviews on this site but after finding we would be guaranteed a renovated room if we booked through hotel conxions I thought the risk was worth taking considering we would be £200 under budget and our other choice of hotel had increased by £200. What you need to remember with New York is if...

Location, Location, location--can't beat the St.James!!! It's half a block off Times Square with two great deli's right next door. Bus and subway both closeby. As in other reviews, yes, the hotel is under going the rennovations, but it is very clean, the bathroom was new and the mattresses were also new. We had a room with two double beds(for...

We didn't have much choice, having to pin down a 12-night stay at reasonable price and at very short notice, but we do not regret staying at the St James. Our room was small and basic, but everything worked and it was well serviced every day. Location cannot be beaten, and the Cranberry Gourmet next door offers reasonable food and...

I requested a room with 2 double beds, got a room with one double bed. It was very small, the bed was very hard and the pillows were very flat! We did get 2 extra pillows. There was no restaurant, so no room service as advertised. There was no ice machine, so we had to buy cups of ice from...

I stayed at Hotel St. James the night of my bachelorette party, I was expecting it to be horrible because of the reviews. It really wasn't that bad, the price is great compared to other hotels. We only stayed one night, and barely were in the room. We found the front desk people to be very nice and helpful too!...

My wife and I stayed at the St James on Sat, 10/15. We got an internet rate of $190 plus tax for a standard room with a queen size bed. I called the hotel a few days before to confirm the reservation plus I asked for a newly renovated room. The phone# was hard to find but I found it:...

True, this hotel has a great location but that is it! I understand this hotel is very old and is undergoing renovations but that is no excuse. The rooms are dirty and dingy. I went with a group that had three seperate rooms and each was worse than the next. Stains on walls and carpets, cheap sheets, loud window-unit air...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the St. james during the weekend. We got what we expected, according to what we have paid for. A standard one star hotel, in the middle of time square, a great and convenient location for an excellent price.They are undergoing some renovation, but no worries. I do not understand all the hassle, some former...

We stayed at the St. james right between snowstorms - and although it was cold outside, inside our reception couldn't have been warmer. Granted, it's not a 5 star hotel - but neither was the price. Our room was clean if a bit spartan - on the other hand we didn't go to New York to sit in the hotel...

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.
