I picked this hotel for the price $410.00 for three nights, breakfast and free WIFI. It was difficult to locate the Magnuson at night. The pictures on the website are exactly how the hotel is inside. They held a $100.00 security fee which I didn't know about. Cons: small, no chair, rough towels, shower curtain had and odor, shower head...

The room was clean. The staff was nice. Breakfast was simple but good. It's really close to the convention center which is the main reason for staying there. Beware that the train goes by every morning at 7:15am right outside the front door. :( Request a room on the back of the building.

First the cons: Our room with a king bed was quite small - one side of the bed was against the wall, requiring a "scoot" down the bed to get out of it on that side. There was just enough room to walk past at the foot of the bed, etc. We didn't love the foam mattress, but we are...

This hotel is close to convention center, like 2 minute walk. The hotel seemed safe. Breakfast had good variety (cereals, toast, bagels, waffles, eggs, sausage, yogurt, fruit), although eggs looked gross. WiFi was free and good. Room cozy but comfortable. Coffee maker in room but condiments not always replenished. There is street noise, it is an industrial area but not...

Stayed here just one night having returned to New York from Washington DC. Booked it because it was one of the cheaper options at this time. The hotel is very basic but was adequate for our needs. It's obviously quite dated in terms of its decor but our room (queen bed) was spacious enough and was clean. There was some...

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.
