We had a Central Park Suite on the 37th floor with fantastic views from the sitting room and the bedroom right over Central Park. Huge room, well appointed, super comfy bed. We stayed for a week and felt right at home. Great location - a few steps from the metro station, a stones throw from the park, 5th Avenue, Columbus...

I stayed here a few years ago on points in a room for two: it was a postage stamp and otherwise OK. Now I was here with my husband and son in a suite, also on points, and it was great. The location is fab and the suite was worth the extra points. It's a bit "peeling wallpaper' but overall...

Husband and I stayed 3 nights in early September on a trip to celebrate my birthday. Our plan was to just hang out and explore the city - no schedule. Our King room was a decent size, and very clean and modern. Like another commenter, I really appreciated the plush bath sheets and the slippers. But more than the room,...

Stayed 3 night in August in a Manhattan Suite. Room was decent size and overall comfortable. It was nice to stay out of Times Square, the walk was only 10 minutes from this location. The main entrance was adjacent to Central Park. It was a comfortable stay, not the most modern, but good. Staff friendly, would stay here again.

The title says it all. We stayed in a central park suite on the 31st floor. We stayed for a week. Great views of Central Park and a great location, no question.

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.
