My 2 adult nieces and I stayed here early April. It was their first visit to NYC, and we were all excited to share a suite, so we could relive our exciting experiences at the end of each day. Here's the bad: We booked the suite a couple of months in advance. We received confirmation and I even made a...

Overall our stay was only ok. I booked, and prepaid for, a "Non-Smoking Family Suite with Two Double Beds", which was described as having a bedroom and a separate sitting room. What I was given upon check-in was a regular, basic, smoking room with 2 double beds. So right off the bat, I felt like we had been given the...

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Comfortable old fashioned hotel not quite as faded at the edges as the Waldorf, but slowly getting there. On the 9th floor and a busy cross street, so not as quiet as I would have liked. Clean room, good shower and a good sized bath. Good cold buffet breakfast and the 'usual' plastic...

The staff was genuine and happy to work with you. Made excellent suggestions for dining, and arranged a car for us back to the airport. It made a really good first...

I booked the place through Booking.com, it gave me a good rate. Informed hotel about late check in and room was ready as I reached. Location is perfect just opposite NY City Center, 5 min walk to times square. Room is decent sized, has good spread of tea and coffee in room. They also have Mini Bar and a microvave...

We stay at The Blakely every time we visit NYC. It's so convenient to everything. The staff is awesome. I love the room with a Kuerig machine and the mini kitchen. The maid service was amazing. A lighted makeup mirror is a nice touch. The subway is close; a grocery store is close, liquor store is close. We will stay...

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.
