I chose this location because of the proximity to Grand Central Station - I like staying in Midtown. The hotel lobby had young, hip vibe the minute you walk in. We arrived in NYC at 9am so the hotel stored our luggage until check in so we could wander the city - great amenity to offer, we just tipped the...

This place was everything and more than we expected. Traveled to NY for the first time with my hubby to go to the Giants vs Cowboys game in Jersey. We were looking to stay somewhere in New York near the major attractions but not so deep in the middle of it all. It was pretty much walking distance to just...

Though the space is tiny, the layout is efficient and comfortable, and the decor is modern and fun. They provided shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a hair dryer, so I was able to pack a bit lighter. With three locks on the door, I felt really safe. The staff is great, too--everyone is super helpful. When we checked out, we...

I cant rate this hotel enough. Husband & I stayed here for 1st visit to NYC. The location is perfect. Its located 5 mins from 5th Avenue, 5-10 min walk to Empire State building, 15 mins to Rockerfeller and Times Square. The hotel is quirky and has a boutique style about it. The rooms, although small and basic are very...

I cannot say enough great things about Pod 39! I am a frequent traveller, often solo, and I am very picky about the quality and location of my digs. I had a single pod at Pod 39 and found it to be absolutely spot-on for a solo visit to New York - my second time in the city. I chose...

This is a good hotel if you are using it mainly to sleep and to keep your stuff safe. The room I had was about the size of a cell, and the bed was oriented to the TV in such a way that when watching TV you had no back support. But who watches a lot of TV when visiting...

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.
