My partner and I stayed 7 nights at The Mayfair for our first visit to New York City. We were a little apprehensive given some of the reviews but we knew we were mainly there to sleep as we would be out and about all day/night. We really didn't have much to worry about. The room was clean and cosy....

Arrived at the hotel really worried what to expect after reading the latest reviews on this site. Really didn't need to worry. The room was small but that was ok cause we didn't spend much time in it.It was clean, no cockroaches, although warm so we had to put air con on even though we were there at the end...

The hotel was decent. The location was awesome, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was good. The room was extremely small and had absolutely no view but met my needs for the night. It was relatively reasonably priced given the location. The staff was friendly, though they charged me to hold my bags for the day, which I found...

The location was great, the price was low, and our bed was comfy. We were worried about bed bugs and cockroaches, but we thankfully didn't see any. The floor and bathroom could definitely have been cleaner. The elevator was old and out of order for most of our trip, which wasn't really a problem for us, but I can definitely...

The best thing about the hotel is the location, 3min walk to Times Square. Rooms are a bit small and the hotel is a bit old-fashioned (could do with a makeover) but if all you want is a bed to sleep and a place to keep your stuff safe. This is your place.

Small, quiet hotel, all amenities you would require, rooms are a little small and dated decor although comfy bed, clean and quiet right round the corner from the centre of time square, would stay here again

I have recently just come back from this hotel. I was really disappointed about the service we received. The hotels main plus is its location. However, it is dirty and is outdated!! Also we were joined by cockroaches the size of mice, bed bugs and other bugs! Which was not acceptable, when we complained to staff about this, they did...

I booked this hotel about six months before my trip. At the time there was very little available that cost under GBP150.00 per night and that had an ensuite toilet and shower. It cost slightly more than I wanted to pay, but nothing more suitable came up, and I was very pleased with the location anyway. I didn't read any...

We booked this hotel because we loved the location. It was my first time to New York but the 4th for my fiancé. We had decided to come to New York to get married in Central Park and then do all the touristy stuff. Upon arrival everything was awesome. Taxi from JFK was great, when we got to the hotel...

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.
