The Park Lane was a little dated but in an elegant way. I loved the decor. CLose to the subway and moderately priced restaurant. Stay was very nice. Room was clean and quiet. Bathroom was a outdated but who cares? The price was reasonable. Enjoyed Harry's Bar which had a friendly atmosphere.

This place is awesome. I've stayed at the outstanding Ritz Carlton next door and paid $700/night--The Park Lane gives you great food, great service, AMAZING VIEWS OF THE PARK, and instant access to anything and everything in NYC--at a fraction of the price. I was having trouble making my reservation online last week, called the hotel, the Manager Alexander Brown...

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.
