The rooms are small, the staff indifferent, the services and amenities minimal and the HVAC system incredibly noisy. This is not my knid of place. You can do much better for the price - even in mid-town Manhattan!

I would whole heartedly recommend the Carvi. We travelled as a family of 3, 2 adults and a teenager. The hotel is clean and modern. We had a good size room with 2 double beds. The room had a clean and well lit bathroom. We had bath robes provided and plenty of towels. There is also a mini fridge with...

I stayed only one night for a business trip. I wanted a place that was a short walk to my client's office in midtown Manhattan, and the Carvi hotel was very convenient. The front desk staff was pleasant and professional, the room (one king bed) was a comfortable size -- neither cramped nor spacious, with a good-sized bathroom and ample...

A whirlwind weekend girls' trip found us at the Carvi hotel. I am a huge fan of boutique hotel chains and wanted to give this one a try. It was inconspicuous and not far from the E train or Central Park. It was pretty quiet considering it is NYC, and we didn't hear our next door or floor-above neighbors. The...

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.

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. ”
