Just spent 2 nights at the Strand Hotel and had a very good time and I did not want to leave. The minute you enter in the Lobby Peter is welcoming you like you are part of his family! Makes you feel very comfortable and right away you know you picked the right place. The roof top bar is very...

I came to the Strand Hotel Rooftop Bar last Friday night for a party and had the most amazing experience. The staff at the front desk as well as the bar were extremely kind and helpful and the rooftop was incredible. You will not find a better midtown view than here! I highly recommend it for anyone, whether or not...

Dear Guest, The quintessential New York experience is exactly what the Top of the Strand offers to every guest. You explained it perfectly to TripAdvisor’s readers, and for that I am deeply grateful. The dazzling views, the superbly mixed cocktails, the friendly vibe – these are here for everyone (not only to hotel guests) all year round. I do hope...

The day we stayed was the Sunday of the Dominican Parade. 37th Street was the gathering for the floats so we had to park and drag our luggage. Would have been nice to know in advance but they did give us a room with a view on the 17th floor. The staff was very helpful and the room and bathroom...

Overall we had a pleasant stay at The Strand in NYC. It is definitely a bit overpriced but overall it was comfortable. The concierge on the first day was very helpful, I believe his name was Jacob. He gave great advice for shopping and nightlife. The restaurant is so-so but the rooftop bar was lots of fun and a great...

Really helpful staff, nice rooms, very clean, view from roof bar is great but often the bar was closed for private functions, in early afternoon it was also not staffed. Plenty of breakfast places close by, plus you can walk to Times Square, Empire State Building and Macy's. Bryant Park is just next door and is a great place to...

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.
