We arrived and requested an upper floor with lots of light. We were told that the room we had did not have any windows. I thought that was illegal as it is a fire safety issue, but was told that they can put us in a windowless room. They offered us a room with a window for an additional $60....

Great hotel with friendly staff. The location of the hotel is excellent; it's within easy walking distance to cafes, restaurants, and shopping! The room (and the bed) was very comfortable. The hotel has a nice rooftop sitting area.

Dear Lori, We are so grateful for the wonderful review and the 5*rating! So glad to read that you had a great stay. The two main points you mentioned, excellent location and comfortable bed, are also what I look for when I travel. Our rooftop is small but a nice space that most of our guests enjoy spending some time...

Dear rustyroohoo, Thank you for taking some time to write us a review.

Great location. Easy walking distance to the UN. Lots of cafes and restaurants close by with a middle eastern one next door that seemed to be a Manhattan institution - a line down the street to get in. The highlight though was the friendly staff. Just lovely.

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.

“My room did not have a view and looked out at the very close next door building. I didn't mind this as I was only there at night and I liked being off the street (for the noise!) but this might not be to everyone's liking (also makes it dark in the room) so you might want to ask about your room location. ”
