My room was fine except that the sheets were very thin and limp. As sheets and towels are what touch my body, they are essential ingredients to my stay at any hotel. I always judge the quality of the hotel by the quality of their sheets. Sheets need to be thick and, if possible, crisp. Every thing else was very...

My daughter and I visited New York for the first time Labor Day Weekend. This was a birthday gift for her 21st birthday. We reviewed the Gem on Trip Advisor and made the decision to stay there based on the reviews and the location to the attractions we wished to see while in New York. We were not disappointed! We...

Myself and three others were travelling to New York for 4 days/3 nights and discovered this hotel online, it's location is roughly 15 minutes from time square and was barely a 5 minute walk from where we got picked up/dropped off from our bus, it's also 5 minute walk from the nearest metro stations on 34th street which was ideal....

My wife and I recently stayed here for the US Open. Reading the recent reviews we expected a friendly front desk staff, small but clean room with free Wifi, and a safe location that would allow us to navigate NYC via walking and Subway in the morning and evening - and that's exactly what we got. We would leave the...

We had a nice time here. A good small hotel, clean and functional. The room was small but okay. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. All attractions were easily accessable by walking. An ideal place for visiting NYC.

I would recommend this hotel but for family with kids would b a tight fit, but would be okay, hopefully it would just be for sleeping, then it would be perfect. Need comfortable shoes as a bit of a walk from Time Square, at least 9 blocks.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Room was small, with two double beds, desk, and wardrobe (not much more room to move), but everything was clean, comfortable, and efficient, with a coffee maker, safe, and bathrobes in the wardrobe. I didn't like that the towels were in a rack above the shower, but my husband thought...

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.
