We were really concerned after reading recent reviews of this hotel, but we found it to be a nice, relatively inexpensive place to spend the weekend. We did not see any protestors. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and our requests for a room change (first room was right next to the elevator) and extra linens were...

I paid about $115 including taxes for a night during the week. The room was very clean and the furnishings were new. It was very basic and a very small room but more than worth the price. Free breakfast (didn't eat it though), free newspaper, coffee maker in room, and in room safe. The only drawback with this hotel is...

I got my two rooms from priceline and so I didn't actually select this hotel. I was wary about what to expect since I read the other reviews. However, the hotel was exactly what a 3-star hotel is: clean rooms (booked a single and also a double room), continental breakfast (toast, bagels, small muffins, juices/teas, donuts until 10am), competent and...

Just got back from a long weekend stay here. We were greeted by the protester! but the nice doorman helped us with our luggage and kept him away. The protesters consist of 2 maybe 3 ex employees who were unhappy with their treatment by the management at the hotel, they say shame on u for staying here, and get your...

Location: Be OK in summer - 15 minutes walk to anywhere decent. In winter, when it's freezing and snowing, it seems to be a million miles away. The area is also quite grotty. Rooms: Tiny but modern and clean. If staying a few nights, should not be a problem. Service: Not the best. Wake up call two hours late -...

Let me start by saying I lived in NY for several years, and my husband and I decided to return for a visit. We booked our stay on priceline and ended up with this hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by a sole male protestor, who insulted me before I could get in the door. If you have thick...

I can't believe I paid $300 for a night in this dump. The room was not unlike your standard motel room that you can get across the Country for $60/night, but this being crazy NYC I paid through my nose for paper-thin sheets, no wireless connection, and -hear this- a non-working telephone in the room. When I complained to the...

My spouse had booked the hotel online last minute. The price seemed good-but what a mistake. First of all, the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. The only other thing on the block is an auto repair and trucks. Oh, and people in a tent in front of the hotel. At first we thought it was some sort of...

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.
