I couldn't believe how great this hotel was. You know when you book a hotel in New York City's theater district for $110.00 per night including taxes you get a little scared about what you are going to receive! The Gallivant is the old President Hotel which has gone through an entire makeover! Clean, roomy(for New York), excellent beds and...

Great location, between 8th Ave and Broadway, just north of Times Sq. Easy access to subway lines, walk to many tourist sites. The negative about the location is that at the 8th Ave corner there is a fire station, a busy fire station, sirens. While the room was well sound insulated from the hallway and adjoining rooms, there was little...

Where to begin? First impressions of the hotel were great, the location, could actually not be much better. We found that being so close to Times Square gave some excellent options when it came to food, shopping or sightseeing. The lobby/reception is impeccable when it comes to cleanliness, appearance and mood. It comes across as a really classy place. Check-in...

We checked in on 29th January, and were greeted by a very rude dark haired man (never caught his name due to lack of name badges) at reception. We were not told any information on check out, wifi, breakfast they offered etc. All the dark hair man cared about was getting a credit card details from us which we weren't...

I've just got back from NYC this morning! Hotel is in a GREAT location (at the top of Times Square) and wifi is really good. The rooms don't look anything like what they look like on the pictures though, the lighting is absolutely terrible. We had to move lights to allow us to get ready because it was that dark!...

We booked a economy room which was about £100 a night. The room was tiny and dirty. We asked to be moved and was upgraded to a queen. A tiny bit bigger but still dirty. I found ants and a Cockroach in the bathroom in February! twice and complained. We moved again to a king room which is better. No...

I stayed at this hotel for four nights end of January and I couldn't have been more happy about my choice. I had read some negative reviews about this place before arriving and I feared that I would have a bad experience. But I was positively surprized when I arrived. The check in service was really quick and friendly. I...

We stayed in a "family room" - very nice room with two double beds and a pull down bunk bed. All three kids loved it! Plenty of space for all five of us. The bathroom was very modern and had an open shower, which the kids also thought was amazing. The reception staff in the lobby was super helpful, and...

We're a group of students and faculty from Philippines. We drove to New York City from Washington D.C. last December 13, 2016. We arrived at around 2pm and we couldn't check in yet.

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.
