Sorry, but I've stayed at several other establishments in NYC and this was the pits. This review has been held back for long enough. I went with 5 other ladies for a shopping/broadway trip, and had to share a room with two others. The room stunk, the locks on the doors didn't work, and the front desk was of no...

There were some good things about this hotel, such as price($100/night) staff, and a deli next door. Staff was actually very very helpful - but even their excellent customer service could not save my ruined vacation! It was my first visit to NYC and my husband and I stayed there for two weeks. Unfortunatelly, our balance was prepaid, so there...

I stayed at this hotel in August for 1 week. When we arrived to our room I could have cried. The walls in the bedroom were filty dirty and the carpet had huge stains on it. It was a nightmare. I have to admit that the bathroom was very clean so that was something. We had arrived late as night...

The room was simple and spartan. The elevator was sluggish and there did not appear to be a contained fire stairwell. Sprinklers were absent from the room, and the smoke detector was smashed to pieces in a drawer without a battery. When questioned, the front desk supervisor said that nothing could be done until Monday. The door lock was feeble,...

Though our stay at the St. James Hotel was brief, it made our first trip to New York a pleasant, enjoyable and memorable one. It's not as fancy as the other hotels in the area, and although the furniture need to be replaced, the room, bathroom & the beddings are clean, and its centrally located in Times Square. We're planning...

This hotel could not be in a better location, just yards from Times Square. Okay, so the place is a bit basic and is undergoing renovation. When you consider what you pay you get excellent value for money. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The television reception is poor but if you plan to sit in and watch...

Nice location and nice hotel. For a two star hotel, I was pleased. I traveled with my mother for the weekend. The proximinty to Time Square was about 30 seconds. If you are looking for a place to rest your head, because you are on the move a great deal this is the place for you. The staff was very...

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.
