This hotel is a little Jem ! It's in the heart of NYC and is a lot cheaper than big chain hotels . Rooms are very clean and modern . Reception staff are very friendly . I would recommend this hotel . This hotel should be booked in advanced as it's always busy .

We had a wonderful stay. This hotel was located so close to Grand Central Station and various other spots on our list to visit. The room was the perfect size, the price was great and the service was wonderful. Thank you especially to Sean at the front desk for being so helpful. We will definitely be coming back again! :)

The Seton Hotel was brilliant for us. There was me, my husband and our 10 year old daughter. I would highly recommend the hotel for its position as if was so central. It is only 2 blocks over from Grand Central Station. The staff were really friendly and helpful as we wanted to get tickets for Madison Square Gardens and...

I deliberated much over hotels in New York trying to find the best price but still a good location and reasonable room size as we were sisters travelling together. The Seton ticked all of the boxes! I was so impressed and would choose to stay here again. Staff were wonderful. Room was decorated tastefully and always clean. Plenty of Restaurants...

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...

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.
