I struggled with whether to give this property four or three stars as there are a lot of things to like about this hotel, yet there are also some problems that made me not love it as much as I would want to. As you can tell by the fact that they put the location into the name of the...

We stayed here for a night during a long layover to New York. The location is excellent for sight-seeing in Midtown. Radio City was visible from the front door. Everything else was kind of "meh." Maybe I just under-estimated the price of a nice room with that sort of location. I paid twice as much as I usually would for...

Boutique: as in you might walk right past it. But also boutique in that the people are very friendly in a personal way. What appeared to me at first to be a pretentiously long name, was actually kind of efficient. “The jewel” being small might not be well-known. But no driver needs to ask where is “The Jewel Facing Rockefeller...

From the first call to book our room to our check out -- Their customer service and agents are so nice and well trained, very accommodating, and cover all necessities, including parking info and rates! The location is central and convenient to our shows/activities, and the rooms are new, clean and beautifully decorated/designed. The breakfast buffet was appeasing to the...

I stayed here with my mom for three nights at the beginning of March 2017. The location is perfect, we didn't ride the subway once. There are a lot of restaurants and sights within a few blocks. If you like The Today Show, it's only two blocks away. My mom and I were able to get there super early and...

My friend and I booked this hotel after researching it on Trip Advisor and were incredibly let down. We chose to go at Christmas and as expected the weather was freezing. On arrival to the hotel, the foyer area which was extremely small was freezing. The Receptionist that greeted us took our details and sent us up to our room....

Without a doubt, I'd consider this boutique hotel a hidden gem of New York City. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are small, yet very nice. They're very clean and beds are comfortable. I was lucky enough to have a balcony that faced Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral which was amazing. I also had a mini...

This small boutique hotel is located in a perfect spot in midtown. It is clean and modern, but the rooms are very small, which is not uncommon in NYC. I was traveling alone and just there for one night, so it was ok, but it would not have been comfortable for two people. I usually stay at the Kimberly hotel...

It's nothing fancy or amazing but does job in midtown, good location for business if your meetings etc in this part of city and I guess also for travellers/tourists who want easy access to mid town attractions. It's pretty basic in terms of room, small , but a nice touch is water on each level, gym is small but okay,...

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.
