This was my first time visiting Manhattan and I was fortunate to find this place. It is close to pretty much everything a tourist would want to see in Midtown, plus it is an easy walk to the subway for those places a bit further away. It isn't right in Times Square so it isn't as noisy, either. The lobby... More

I was a guest at a wedding in one of the penthouse's here, and it was a truly amazing venue. I was incredibly envious of the bride and groom's facilities for the night, with the bedroom suite and en suite looking very luxurious. The best par was, of course, the view from the balcony. You can peer down the street... More

I will start this review by saying one thing - approach this hotel with an open mind. It's not your usual hotel - when you walk in with all your luggage late at night you think you've walked into the wrong place. There's nothing about it that screams 'HOTEL' and obviously this can sometimes be a good thing. On this... More

The staff and location were perfect, couldn't have asked for anything more from the hotel. It is a little pricey but it's New York City and right near Times Square so that's to be expected. The lobby/bar/restaurant is on the ground floor is inviting and stylish. Everyone we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Morgans commissioned Roman Williams, to re-create Royalton's legendary lobby. The design - simultaneously sophisticated and complex - juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast-bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls. ... more   less
