The hotel is great for a NY stay when you just use it to sleep at nights. Bedrooms are comfortable and people at front desk very polite and helpful. The shared bathroom was my great worry but I have to say that it was clean every time I wanted to use it and never saw other people coming in or...

I didn't enjoy my stay at Seton. Couple of issues to note: extremely dirty carpets, loud A/C unit, paper thin walls. I could hear the girls next door talking and using the hair dryer - couples, you've been warned. The TV only has a few channels (under 20, some with distorted quality). If you only plan to sleep in the...

I had doubts and I thought that I would get an average place for the cheap price. However Seton hotel is extremely great value for money. It is new and modern. I feel safe here and the staff are wonderful. I bought a bottle of wine and did not have a corkscrew. The staff had one delivered to my room....

I just got back home from a week spent at the Seton Hotel. I can only give positive impressions of my time spent there. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the location was convenient to all midtown Manhattan locations. There were a myriad of options for dining and entertainment nearby, and if Times Square appeals, it was an...

Great value for money, highly recommend this hotel! Booked a last minute overnight stay for my first night in NYC for only USD$80 and the hotel is in a fantastic location - within walking distance to all the main sights in midtown Manhattan (Chrysler building, Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, United Nations, New York Public Library etc.). Groceries, pharmacy,...

Room had old world charm with modern day amenities. In was like taking a step back in time, but once we were in our room it was very modern. We had 2 adults and 2 children and plenty of room.

First time in NYC, single, the location and assistance couldn't have been better. I walked the City and found the location to be just what I needed. The staff was most helpful. The Library is just around the corner :-)

Stayed for 5 nights in June. The hotel is in a great location and nicely furnished with excellent wifi. Our room was great - 2 double beds with a small but beautifully clean bathroom and good air conditioning. We were on the 6th floor and the room was quiet. All staff were pleasant and helpful - even giving tips on...

The size of this room in NYC - that is within walking distance to Time Square is certainly not the norm in my experience! We had a room with two beds (our college age daughter was with us). The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been a refrigerator in the room. There is no central air...

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.
