Immediately when I stepped through the door, I was pleased with my choice of hotel. The lobby had a clean, modern finish and the concierge was very pleasant. Although we had not called ahead, we were still able to check in a half hour early. Our room was very neat and tidy and had nice finishings. The room was small,...

I chose Seton for myself and my mother mainly because of the location but also because of the price. We came with the bus from Newark Airport and it stops at 41 St. with a less than 5 minute walk to the hotel. Very close to the Chrysler Building and Grand Central (which is also the nearest Subway station). Very...

We were very satisfied. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had a room with two double beds, not spacious but more than adequate. We were the first room off the lobby so I was concerned about noise but it was very quiet . Lovely sitting room in the front was a good place to meet before we went out. Very...

Firstly, the staff on the front desk are so helpful and friendly at this hotel. There is a rotation of 2 females and 3 males - during my 5 night stay they all were really approachable and polite. The room I stayed in was 411. This was right next to the shared bathroom and shower - which was a bonus...

I took my granddaughter to New York for her 16th birthday. I allowed her to pick the hotel and she chose the Seton for location . It was a great choice. The location was perfect for walking to time square or Penn station,Fifth Avenue or any of the normal Walking destinations. We also picked up a cab very easily outside...

I stayed here for three nights in mid December. LOVED IT! I have stayed at Hiltons in the past which were not as good as this hotel! The room is big, has comfy beds, excellent pressure in the showers, immaculate, and in a GREAT location! It is located in Midtown - which is central to everything. Grand Central is around...

We stayed 6 nights: 7-13 September 2016 and our group consisted of 4 families - total of 14 guests (from 2 to 70 years old) so planning was key. Prior to our booking we contacted the hotel and Lucas answered our emails promptly and provided detailed information about the hotel. When we arrived - we found the check-in/out process to...

We stayed for 3 nights at the Seton hotel and found it to be a very well located just near Grand Central Station, so we were able to just have a 5 min walk to the subway.

Thank you so much for your review. I just wanted to let you know that we use OBSCURE frosted privacy glass for the bathroom door. This type of glass creates privacy without blocking the light. When you return to the Seton (and we hope you do) you can request a room without an obscure glass bathroom door. We have those...

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. Good location (really close to Empire State Building, friendly and helpful staff, our room was clean, the bed is comfortable (little bit small - 140cm wide), free morning coffee. Really great price value.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
