Definitely one of the nicer hotels I've stayed in during my trips to NY for work. Great sized rooms, very well designed and the staff is always friendly and attentive. The location is great because it's close to Times Sq, but far enough away that you don't deal with the noise of the city like you would at other hotels.... More

My husband, 2 1/2 year old and 11 month old stayed here for 7 nights over Christmas. We arrived at midnight after the most stressful experience with the Go Airlink shuttle service.

I stayed here this past weekend with my husband and let me say WE LOVED IT. Once you enter the lobby, you are reminded of elegant times. Staff was exceptional and the view of NYC from my room was breathtaking. I had a great night's sleep and enjoyed my stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Everyone raves about the sky bar and how big the rooms are -- which are in fact great. But the customer service beyond terrible, not child friendly.

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.
