We stayed here for 8 nights including Thanksgiving. I booked a room with a private bathroom. It could get a bit warm in the room which you couldn't control but the room itself was lovely and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and nice. I loved the location, not far from grand central station and in walking distance of the...

Boutique hotel with character. The staff was very helpful. The rooms clean and comfortable albeit small. A few blocks from grand Central station and the UN. Restaurants and bars everywhere. And for NYC, a bargain.

This hotel is comfortable, clean, perfectly located, and the staff is extremely helpful. I stayed here last week for business and I will definitely be staying again in the future. Walking distance to Grand Central Station, United Nations, Chrysler Building, Empire State Building, shopping, etc. The rooms are on the smaller side, but the bed was cozy, the bathroom was...

The hotel is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and has the friendliest, helpful staff. The rooms (whilst not huge - but this is New York) are sparkling and so quiet - even though you're in the city which never sleeps it's quiet and you can sleep. Can't thank them enough for making our break so perfect (great diner and restaurant recommendations...

but I can't go without giving this awesome place the 5 stars it deserves. The hotel is well kept & tastefully decorated,and Brittany and her staff are outstanding. If you're looking for sub-par service with an attitude that you have to deal with since you decided on going cheap for this trip, you need to go to the hotel down...

Several different options for rooms here, including budget (for NYC) options with shared baths. Rooms are clean and quiet despite the central location just blocks from Grand Central Terminal. Easy walk to A variety of attractions from here coupled with a friendly staff make this a solid option in the area.

I have stayed at the Seton twice now and can recommend it without hesitation. Nothing fancy about it, but the rooms are clean and well appointed and the location is short walk to Grand Central and other landmarks such as Bryant Park, NYPL and 5th Avenue shopping etc. The staff is friendly and accommodating. No restaurant or lounge on premises,...

A friend and I stayed three nights at the Seton this past week. Our room was large and beautifully appointed; two double beds, a good size dresser, night stand with drawers, and a closet. The bathroom was tiled, walls and floor, with a lovely pedestal sink. I understand that the entire hotel has been recently renovated. The staff could not...

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.
