Good location for tourists but I'm not one. Room was small and clean BUT the bed mattress was totally broken down on both sides (yes, I tried to use first one then the other side of the bed, total failure) Bathroom incredibly small and room lighting insufficient. Won't stay here again.

My partner and mum and dad stayed at this hotel for my mums 50th, we had the penthouse. It was fantastic, clean, great views but the layout was not so good. The toilet was in one of the bedrooms so we only had the 1 to share and no privacy. We notified the staff the night we arrived, Azim had...

I booked the Queen deluxe room on TravelZoo for $109 before tax which is a great price given the area and quality. After reading other reviews I didn't have a positive impression but I was very impressed when I walked in. The "premiere" room we were assigned was spacious with ample room to move around. The bathroom was modern and...

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The location is amazing, only a two-minute walk to Times Square but far enough away so you get a decent night's sleep. The staff were extremely nice. The internet connection was very good. The TV worked well. If there were any gripes, the size of the bathroom was incredibly small. The toilet...

Stayed here for 2 nights. One problem was the tv's weren't working but after telling front desk they promptly fixed the issue. Other problem was there were no vending machines. Other than that everything was good.

We booked a family room, two double beds and large bunk beds, for four nights and enjoyed a very good stay at The Gallivant. Our room was spacious, clean with an excellent bathroom. All modern and well decorated. My only negative about the room was the dim lighting. The hotel staff were all helpful and really nice. Used the printer...

I stayed here with my two daughter in late December. We stayed 3 nights. Our room was never cleaned, trash not taken, no clean towels. I stopped the housekeeper in the hall who said she would get it later but it was never taken care of. Also, my daughter left her iPad on the bed at checkout. And we know...

After reading a few not so great reviews prior to our trip (after booking) I was a little apprehensive about our stay. It was great. Reception staff were efficient. Lobby area was clean and quirky. Our room was reasonably basic but clean, modern, cosy and well appointed. The shower was great! Broadway and Times Square are literally a stones through...

I had a wonderful experience at this property. We were warmly welcomed by Antonio de la Cruz from the very beginning and we could not have asked for a better room or surroundings. The room looked newly remodeled and the bathroom was wonderful. Our room was very quiet and we had a restful night's rest each night. The bed was...

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.
