I am an experienced traveler. I sometimes even stay at the Hilton in NYC. But when I am traveling alone, my first choice is Soldiers Sailors Marines Club us my first choice due to the $65 I pay to stay with NO TAX. (Compared with hundreds elsewhere.) Yes...you may bunk with others and the bathroom and showers is down the...

Room was tight, but if you were in the military, it doesnt matter. For the price, in the middle of all of the attractions of NYC, you cannot complain at all. The staff is what made this experience wonderful. From the minute I called to make a reservation, until the morning I departed, the staff there knew exactly what to...

Stayed here in 1979 when I was a broke E-1 and twice more in the last several years. It is old, the rooms small as are the beds, and the staff is well, not well paid. But what a great place to stay. It is inexpensive, historical, you meet other veterans, and a great location.

I have stayed here many times over the past ten years. It is basic, clean and has a nice breakfast bagel, refrig available and a European hostel flavor. You can stay here for $65 bucks or at the Marriott for $575. Short ten minute walk to Grand Central, Bryant Park the Library and Times Square. City transportation is at the...

I would never recommend anyone to stay at this broken down, dirty, rude staff, uncomfortable bed place. We felt like we were staying in a homeless shelter. You are required to pay $10 cash deposit for the key to the room you just paid for. It is bare bones, no nothing in the rooms. The rooms had dirty, stained carpet...

This is the second time I have stayed here. Once for 4 nights back in 2008 and my husband and I stayed here for 5 nights this past week while in NYC on vacation. Not much has changed at all in the past 8 years. The plus points are the location. It's just a short walk to Grand Central where...

First time to NYC and LAST time at this hotel. Having stayed several times at the Hale Koa Hotel in Hawaii and the Marines Memorial Hotel in SF I expected this military hotel to be over the top being in NYC. Great website looks nothing like the room we stayed in very low rent. Use to being on an adventure...

You pay so much less to stay here, than anywhere in NYC! you may have to climb a few flights of stairs and share a bathroom, but they give you free bagels so it evens out. Pretty good location, walk through fashion district to get to Times Square or Broadway. Close to Central Station. Staye with kids, and will return.

First: bring a hair dryer if you want to use one! The write up about this club says hair dryers are available for a $10 deposit, however, Not One was available this past weekend. But since I got past my bad hair day, I have to agree that the experience was quite enjoyable. This is more like living in someone's...

Just got back from our first trip to New York. This was our 2nd anniversary trip and we were so thankful to find such a great place to stay for such a great price! We stayed two nights and not one complaint! Very clean, cozy room and facilities were well kept. Bathroom close by and showers just one floor up....

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.
