This place was absolutely horrible! I read a few reviews, and thought I'd take a chance because I usually like the Best Western brand and enjoy earning points for my stays. However, I would not recommend this place. Just as the other reviewers stated, the hotel is in an isolated area of Manhattan. It's just 2 blocks from the Lincoln...

The All Star Game was being played in New York and every hotel room was taken, or so it seemed according to my travel agent. I was booked at this hotel. The people at the desk are nice and helpful. The problem is the room. It is essentially 12 feet by 12 feet.. no exaggeration. The bed, desk, lamps, chair...

This is the last time I will use Priceline. For $179 a night, I dont think its too much to expect a clean place. This is a dirty run down hotel with EXTREMELY cramped rooms and very worn everything. But worse is the location, in the middle of a block of buildings all at various stages of construction, and with...

The Best Western Convention Centre Hotel (BWCCH) is great value if you pay less than $200/night. I booked the BWCCH through Priceline and bid (and paid) $150/night. May sure you try even a lower bid, as others have paid less. Yes, as with other reviews, I was quite sad when I got the reply from Priceline that I got the...

My husband and I stayed over the 4th of July weekend. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly upon check-in. The location is not too convenient unless you are using the convention center. Rooms are a reasonable size for a New York City hotel. Bathrooms are small, but very nice and clean. We loved the bed - it...

I wasn't so happy when I first got this hotel on Priceline. Web reviews were horrible and the neighborhood is full of car repair shops. No character there! However, I was more than pleasantly surprised and I would definitely stay there again. If you are at the Javits Center, it is only one-half block walk. The horse-drawn carriages are prepared...

Good points: 1) Somewhat close to Penn Station, where I entered the city. 2) Relatively clean, but nowhere near pristine. About what I expected at this price. Bad points: 1) They claimed that they were giving me a queen sized bed, but in fact, they took a queen sized headboard and put two twin beds together. This alone was pretty...

The continental breakfast is not worth going down for. Although this is just a minor bit of why I wouldn't stay here again. If you are a tourist looking for a great place to stay, do not stay here. Too dangerous for tourists. If you are here for the convention, great location, but I rather stay at Travel Inn just...

The BW Convention Center is a very basic hotel that is a few blocks away from Broadway and Macy's. It is in an industrial area, but only a couple of blocks from 9th avenue where there are some reasonable restaurants. We booked our room through hotwire. It was the least expensive hotel we could find in midtown that had a...

Got the hotel on Hotwire, so we actually not selected it ourselves. Paid 179 dollar + taxes for three persons (one week´s stay). Must be a good price on Manhattan. Stayed on the 11:th floor. It was rather small but very clean and neat. The Tempura mattresses was comfortable and it was nice to have a safe for money and...

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.
