The hotel was clean, staff were always friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a good location, within easy walking distance of all main attractions and with grand central just around the corner, you can easily get a train or subway to things further afield. The room we had was small, however because you're always out exploring, in our opinion,...

I stayed in the hotel with a work colleague. The hotel was fine. However, upon return to Paris, both of our credit cards were pirated. We used only at the hotel. Calling the hotel reception, I was told that this was a problem that they were trying to resolve and that I would be called from management. Still waiting for...

Thank you for your feedback. All reservations are stamped with the exact check in time and date. After reviewing the camera footage, there was no unusual activity at time of check in. After the credit card is swiped the computer only stores the last 4 digits of the card and the expiration date making us PCI compliant. Nobody after the...

Very friendly staff. We were walking in the rain and met one of the staff members on the street and she offered her umbrella for the day. Room wasn't huge but it was clean and nice. 2 blocks from Grand Central station. Plenty of dining opportunities nearby. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

The hotel perfectly suited our needs during our sightseeing trip to NYC. Located close to grand central station and next to Chrysler Building. Kind staff, clean (but small) rooms. Nice and tasty dinners around to have breakfast.

Not sure if this is what I want to do, two years ago this hotel was off the radar. How things change. The seton Hotel is minutes away from Grand Central and just one block from the airport shuttle terminal. Has a great feel about the place but before you get too excited it is only a room only hotel....

I needed a midtown hotel and did not want to pay huge prices. The reviews on this hotel were pretty good so I gave it a try. This is an old building with very narrow hallways and small rooms. The room was clean and as long as small is ok with you, it will be fine. The decor is a...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 5 nights during Thanksgiving week. Overall, a pleasant hotel in an excellent location for a fairly reasonable price. Our room was on the ground floor, and was quite small but manageable. The one problem was an intermittent sewage smell coming from the water drain in the bathroom floor. It was quite overwhelming, especially...

We recently spent a weekend at the Seton the rooms were small but nicely finished. We may have even used shared bathroom down the hall to help 4 women get ready just a bit quicker LOL!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
