A great location, and an interesting place. Not for everyone, but ideal if you're doing NYC on a budget. You need to be military or ex, US or allied nation. You're sure to meet interesting fellow-guests, and enjoy the complementary breakfast. Public rooms are fine, bedrooms a little Spartan, but 5 Stars in my book...

I like this place very much. This is my third stay here. The people who work here are warm and friendly. The place has seen its best day and it is seriously dated but it is inexpensive and in a great location. And having to be military to stay here, you feel like you're with your own. And also there...

This a tough review to write. The club is not a hotel and they don't pretend it is. It is essentially a hostel for adults with a connection to the military. My son and I chose the club because we thought it would be a cost-effective alternative to a hotel in NYC. It cost $85/night for the two of us,... More

Can't beat the location at this price. Fairly clean. The mattress seemed to be from 1920. Common bathroom/showers. A bit seedy, but glad to stay there nonetheless. It was so nice to park the car and just walk everywhere. The hotel has no parking, but a couple blocks away I paid about $120 for 4 days of parking.

Location can't be beat for the price - just blocks away from the Empire State Building and about a 20 minute walk from Times Square and Rockefeller Center . Hotel is more like a European hostel with basic private sleeping rooms and community bathrooms. The building is "rustic" and in need of some TLC, so manage your expectations. But you... More

A hotel this is not, more like a historic b&b. It's truly a gem though! The club itself is full of military memorabilia and has a museum like quality. I booked a private room for 2 with a double bed, came out to $160 a night for both of us, as my husband is an officer so rate is a... More

Room was tight, but if you were in the military, it doesnt matter. For the price, in the middle of all of the attractions of NYC, you cannot complain at all. The staff is what made this experience wonderful. From the minute I called to make a reservation, until the morning I departed, the staff there knew exactly what to... More

Stayed here in 1979 when I was a broke E-1 and twice more in the last several years. It is old, the rooms small as are the beds, and the staff is well, not well paid. But what a great place to stay. It is inexpensive, historical, you meet other veterans, and a great location.

I have stayed here many times over the past ten years. It is basic, clean and has a nice breakfast bagel, refrig available and a European hostel flavor. You can stay here for $65 bucks or at the Marriott for $575. Short ten minute walk to Grand Central, Bryant Park the Library and Times Square. City transportation is at the... More

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.
