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...

I have booked the hotel from hotels.com for my family vacation. We paid for 220.00/night for two nights, plus 100 for an additional person. The room is so small, no space for the luggages.. We have to put the luggage on the top of the chair. There is train path close to the hotel, each night, we would be waked...

We were really concerned after reading recent reviews of this hotel, but we found it to be a nice, relatively inexpensive place to spend the weekend. We did not see any protestors. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful, and our requests for a room change (first room was right next to the elevator) and extra linens were...

I paid about $115 including taxes for a night during the week. The room was very clean and the furnishings were new. It was very basic and a very small room but more than worth the price. Free breakfast (didn't eat it though), free newspaper, coffee maker in room, and in room safe. The only drawback with this hotel is...

I got my two rooms from priceline and so I didn't actually select this hotel. I was wary about what to expect since I read the other reviews. However, the hotel was exactly what a 3-star hotel is: clean rooms (booked a single and also a double room), continental breakfast (toast, bagels, small muffins, juices/teas, donuts until 10am), competent 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.
