I travel all the time. In fact I have probably spent more nights in hotels than in my own home. Most of the time this is for business - this time it was an indulgent trip to New York with my 2 sisters to celebrate my birthday. To start off the staff went out of their way to spoil me...

This was a girl's trip to celebrate my sister's birthday. When the hotel heard it was a special birthday they upgraded us to a magnificent suite and sent up bubbly and birthday cake. We couldn't have asked for more! The hotel is beautifully decorated, the food very good and the service friendly while being everything you would expect of a...

The hotel is very nice down stairs. The food is very good as well. My room was a different story. Attached is a picture of the mold in my shower and the broken drain. The bed was OK and the furnishings dated. I think you can find better accommodations in NYC for the price.

Our room was lovely even though it was booked through Expedia (3rd floor), but nicely designed. Best to ask for a quiet room and not near the garbage pick-up location. Even with that, we liked it! Very comfortable bed. The concierge, Mike, was very helpful on a number of occasions. We liked the location. Did not eat there for breakfast,...

My wife and I stayed here for 22nd wedding anniversary and had a great time. The staff and concierge were terrific. It directly across from Central Park and easy access to the theaters and Tim Square. We got upgraded to a suite over looking the park, it was great. We will be back.

I chose this hotel for its reputation and location for Christmas in New York City. One thing i have to say is that you can't beat the location, as you have quick access to central park, subway and great restaurants. As for the hotel, I would say that there are better options out there for your money. I upgraded the...

The location is perfect for our visits to NYC! Within walking distance to Central Park; Lincoln Center; Carnegie Hall; 5th Avenue; Madison Avenue; MOMA; and, Broadway! We have always loved the no fuss, clean lines of furnishings and neutral colored curtains and walls in their very comfortable suites! Though with this weekend stay, an awful smell of Clorox filled the...

We stayed in a junior suite for our one-night stay. It was spacious and very comfortable. Dinner at Southgate worked out well for us and we enjoyed breakfast in the Executive Lounge. The location is ideal, right across from Central Park and near several subway lines. I would describe it as very nice, not quite luxurious. The lobby was lovely....

The Essex House has a few high quality attributes including its location and service. I stayed in a suite with a great view, but must admit that the room was in desperate need of a renovation.

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.
