The room was modest but enough for our stay. If you want loads of space, this probably isn't for you. It was clean, the bathroom was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. They offer complimentary coffee 6-11am but nothing else. A vending machine in the lobby helps out of those hours.

Unfailingly great customer service from the moment of arrival. Clean, modern, well equipped, comfortable room. Outstanding location a few blocks from Grand Central - we had an 88 year-old traveler with us and walked there for lunch at the Oyster Bar. Parking garages down the street. Had a great restaurant recommendation from the gentleman at the front desk. The price... More

We stayed at the Seton Hotel for three nights in a superior twin room. The location was great and really convenient for places like Grand Central Terminal. The staff were friendly, wifi was strong and reliable and the rooms were spacious (for New York!) and comfortable.

Ok Hotel close to all this great city has to offer. 5 minute walk from Airporter bus stop at Gran Central. Rooms on small side but has all that is required. Good lounge area. No breakfast but so many eateries close by. Minutes from metro.

Located just 2.1/2 blocks from Grand Central Station, and 1.1/2 blocks from the stop for the Newark Airport - Grand Central Station shuttle, it is very conveniently located. Rooms are spacious, with large bathrooms. Staff is friendly and helpful. However, while it lacks large hotel type amenities, it is surrounded by restaurants, bars and convenience stores. While not exactly an... More

Stayed here for a week. Great location. Centrally located to just about anything. Very clean and stylish boutique hotel. The staff and owner were extremely nice and helpful with suggestions of places to eat and see and best method of travel. We loved it so much... We're coming back again in November.

Situated uptown near Gran Central Station, this hotel offers a great value option in a fabulous location. We chose to see most of Manhattan by walking it but there is a subway station on virtually every corner.

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.
