We decided to drive into the city as the second part of our vacation was at the Jersey shore. We were pleasantly greeted in our car out front by Thomas the doorman. Throughout our stay he consistently provided stellar service whether it be getting our car in and out ,recommending restaurants etc. Inside, the front desk staff was efficient,knowledgable and...

The Doubletree Metropolitan at 51st and Lexington is really capitalizing on its location by providing very good service, decent room size, & quick and thorough housekeeping. The hotel is bustling and I bet stays at peak capacity due to its relatively moderate cost. It is more like an active condo, than hotel, however, with a tiny reception and bar area....

We stayed here for 8 days in June/ July. Rooms are small, but for the price and location you can't beat it. The hotel was clean and the staff was helpful. They will give you a mini fridge to use if needed.

I'm writing the review because ONE person at the doubletree went above and beyond. Robert Sierra was super helpful and genuinely nice. If more people were as helpful as him they'd have an allstar crew.

My family stayed here. As a Diamond member i wrote a letter one month ahead asking that they be looked after. Perhaps the hotel never received it. The rooms were 3 star , at best. Wireless was patchy. Outrageous was the fact that the hotel charged for my family to leave their bags on departure and then charged them again...

Far from Time Square but close to E subway line (2 blocks - 53rd & Lexington) The rooms are small but clean (if you don't move furniture), doors bang loud when closing and will wake you up at night. Even on the 11th floor you hear street noise. Oh and there's a fire department right on 51 and Lexington -...

we were there for an event. the restrictions were ridiculous. workers going through the garbage just to ensure that people did not bring in food or drink. authors and workers not being allowed to enjoy a drink other than the water provided. or a snack like maybe a piece of chocolate. it was crazy!

Quite a nice hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are very clean and serviced each day to a high standard. The location is not far from places and has a subway station next to hotel so getting around the city is easy. I would use this hotel if staying in the city again.

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.
