Me and my partner stayed at the Seton Hotel at the beginning of April 2016 for 5 nights. The location was perfect for us to use as a base as it is close to the subways and some attractions we wanted to visit, such as grand central station and Times Square. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, especially...

Stayed for 4 nights over NYE. This is a small apartment building converted into a boutique-ish hotel. Rooms are pretty small, but nice & comfortable. Great value over the holiday. Centrally located, we were able to walk everywhere. Little pub next door & grocery around the corner. Was a pleasant stay.

when we first arrived we were allocated a double room. The bed was only slightly larger than a single bed and there wasn't even a wardrobe in the hotel. Shocked, we asked for an upgrade as this wasn't the standard we were expecting for what we had paid. Whilst the second room was much better, neither rooms had safes, something...

I dont normally do reviews but felt I really needed to share this hotel with others.... I was very nervous booking the shared bathroom room, but after reading the other reviews thought .... lets go for it.... so glad I did....

This boutique hotel is very charming and in an excellent location. It was essential for me to be in a central area of Manhattan and this hotel was well priced and did the job. I stayed here for business... I think I was the only one! Most people were young couples/ groups, but the hotel wasn't noisy or too much...

Can't complain at all. We stayed for one very quick night en route to Georgia and the staff were super friendly and helpful, room spacious and clean, comfy beds, hot water (sometimes not hot enough at some hotels). Location was great considering the price. The only reason this is not getting 5 stars is that the wifi wasn't great in...

Room was a little on the small side but clean and well decorated. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. A nice touch were the individual face wipes/make up removers. Would definitely recommend for a weekend stay in NYC. A short walk from Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building and Times Square - Perfect!!

The hotel is small, and the staff was great!! The rooms were spacious, modern, and clean. There is a small sitting room that some guests like to gather in, and there is also a TV there. WIFI was included in the room price.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
