I travel to NYC frequently for both business and pleasure. When traveling for pleasure, I typically stay in Midtown West. However, our NYC office is in Midtown East and I stay on that side when traveling for work. This time I stayed at Fifty NYC and was thoroughly impressed. The location is pretty convenient - there are restaurants and stores...

My family stayed her overnight and loved it. The wine hour was on point, even providing snacks for our enjoyment. I loved the little area off to the side with the fireplace. The rooms were about average size for Manhattan. I would definitely stay here again!

This hotel on 50th on the East Side is a good location with interesting rooms and public spaces. The service is good and the staff generally helpful. It seems that they do not check anyone in before 3 PM so if you are arriving earlier you will need to check your bags at the hotel

I have stayed at this hotel for a number of years (5+ years) and liked it - however on this occasion I discovered that there is a mandatory facility fee at 25 US a day which is "forcing" you to purchase ( or loose it ) up to 10 $ a day items from their cupboard ( snacks, drinks )...

The hotel is located in a central part of New York City. The rooms are newly renovated and a great size. I stayed in a large one bedroom with a kitchen. The staff was incredible and really contributed to a memorable stay.

I have stayed at the hotel on two separate occasions - once in a suite (upgrade) and the second time in a standard room. The thing to remember is that the hotel faces main street and is really noisy. They provide earplugs for sleeping. The hotel is extremely comfortable and rooms are really spacious, which in NYC is a great...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The newly redesigned Fifty NYC just completed a comprehensive redesign of all guest rooms and suites as well as its public spaces (corridors, lobby and second floor club room). Fifty NYC hotel has 251 beautifully redesigned rooms including 100 with kitchens and 19 with terraces. All with eclectic furnishings that look hand-selected; curated details at every corner and well-considered design down to the last, elegant component. New to the lobby is a grab-and-go retail space featuring food, beverages, sundries and fun, curated merchandise for spur-of-the-moment splurges. The redesign connects the lobby and the Club Room via a sweeping, stainless steel-and-stone staircase to an updated oasis. The design of the second floor Club Room inspires guests to get out of their rooms with an inviting, eclectic mix of modern furniture and stylish accent pieces where they can relax, work and take advantage of complimentary Wi-Fi. Each evening the hotel hosts a complimentary wine hour held in the Club Room and breakfast is served here daily. Set in the dynamic center of Midtown Manhattan - Fifty NYC provides a modern, artfully designed setting with a residential feel.
