Hotel is wonderful. The bar had a good selection and menu. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Allan checked us in and was great. He answered all our questions and gave us all the info on the hotel. Definitely recommend!

Awesome rooms! There was some confusion at the front desk with my reservation when I arrived and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Allen, in particular was beyond helpful with everything possible!

Room is in a great location in Midtown, with convenient access to subway train 6. Room is considered big for NYC standards, the room type I had was "Premier King Salon" that featured a nice mini bar. Not much street noise, nor did I hear noises from my neighbors. Overall, room was cozy, clean, and quiet. The staff was very...

The first thing I noticed was the smell... On approach, the aroma was very pleasant and soothing. I stayed alone for one night in a 9th floor room. It was a clean room with nice furnishings and a lot of natural light; it was very quiet and I could not hear that traffic from the street below. There was enough...

We stayed here for one night during our one week trip to NYC. It is a cool hotel, with nice rooms and views. The only thing that was a bit of a surprise was the high hotel fee that we werent aware of. I guess this is normal in the US, but as we came from Europe we were shocked...

Great find! Awesome staff. Traffic & noise outside, Allen waiting inside the very serene lobby, was all smiles, graciously receiving his guests offering kind suggestions and over the top assistance! He is a gorgeous representative of this very cool, discreet, modern boutique hotel. Ideal location, comfortable, quiet room...looking forward to the wine & cheese tasting...

I stayed at 48lex for one night but I would go back. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful, and the hotel is in a great central location. Rooms are immaculate and quiet. Has a very personal feel. The breakfast is light (great for me but don't expect omelettes and bacon) and there is a very nice complimentary cocktail hour...

My fiancee and I stayed here for one night, and it was a nice, practical choice. It didn't cost us much, especially because I used a whole bunch of points toward the price, and it is very centrally located. We stayed in a corner suite, which was well laid out and clean. We enjoyed the mini bar in the room,...

The staff here are some of the friendliest I've encountered. I arrived well before check in time and they offered to hold my bags and contact me when a room was ready. The lounge on the 2nd floor is really nice. I was able to hang out there for a bit and enjoy a coffee while waiting for my room....

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.
