Great hotel! Omar was the best looking out for us for dinner and directions. The entire staff was wonderful, Mermen (think that was her name) in the bar was very wonderful to chat with, it was nice hearing about her great career with Marriott. I forgot the name of the lady that checked us in, but she was very pleasant... More

This was my second time staying in the hotel (I stayed here 3 years ago in April 2010 and enjoyed the stay which is why I chose this place again). From my last stay, the restaurant over looking times square has now been converted to a lounge. The only problem being we never had access to this lounge as it... More

We loved our stay at the Renaissance!! The staff was always right there with friendly service. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The location was perfect to easily stop in throughout our days to catch a nap or unwind from all the sightseeing. Everything was right at our doorstep from theater tickets, Rockefeller Center, to subway stations.

My family and I had stayed at this awesome hotel for one evening on December 29-30 before a cruise out of the city. We arrived at the hotel to just drop off our bags, however, the room was ready, and it was 8:45am!! Michelle who checked us in was very informative and professional: definitely a keeper for the hotel staff!!... More

Our stay overall stay at the Renaissance was fantastic....except that we got cheated out of the main restaurants during the holiday season! I am a Marriott gold member and the #1 reason we picked this hotel was to have dinner and drinks at the hotel restaurant that faces times square. When we got there, we learned that the main restaurant... More

The Hotel is very well located and the bar area has the best view of Times Square. The Hotel is well redecorated and not as aged as its competitors on the square. The escalator from reception to the main lobby could be a struggle during busy times and the Hotel doesn’t have a spa which detracts from its high end... More

Our first time in New York for my partner's birthday and we had an amazing time. Not only is the city bustling and friendly - the hotel was brilliant too. The hotel is modern and chic and has comfortable rooms. One of the major appeals is the hotel bar which is glass fronted and looks directly over the whole of... More

Perfect location for a family vacation in NYC. Rooms were a good size for a NYC hotel. View from our room on the 21st floor was awesome. My kids loved it! There was no noise even though hotel is literally in the middle of times square. Cool and hip upper level lobby includes a breakfast area, (bar at night), with... More

Enjoyed a 5 night stay here this past April. If you want to be in the center of all the Times Square hub-bub this is certainly the place to 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.
