The Mansfield
Ranked #347 of 468 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 4 May 2012

I stayed here on a business trip and there are really lots of better hotels in the area for similar prices (The Warwick and The Chambers are two that come to mind). The Mansfield is lacking in some extremely basic hotel necessities. For example, a bath mat would be nice so I don't slip all over the floor when I step out of the shower, or failing this at least an extra towel in the room so I can improvise. The other thing that really irked me was the air conditioning units, as mentioned by other reviewers, though not because they were loud. I was truly shocked that a hotel at this price level would have window units like this, and that the open area of the window would be covered by what is essentially black plastic/foamboard, and ill-fitting to top that off. This makes the rooms really noisy, you can hear literally everything outside and a lot of air comes in from outside which is not nice when it is cold out. Additionally, while I found the bathrooms and bed linens to be clean, the rest of the room was not up to cleanliness standards. Visible layers of dust/grime in the corners and mysterious black sludge marks on the upholstery, and more luggage/other assorted marks on the walls and door frames than is acceptable at this price level. The hardwood floors, one of the main selling points of the hotel, are also not nice, they are irregular and beaten-up.

This is a great booutique hotel.
We had two rooms for a family of 7. Both were suites with queen bed in one room and fold out in separate lounge. This is our first time in NY and yes the rooms were small but it seems that is the case in most hotels in NY. This hotel was excellant, the rooms we were in looked like they had recently been renovated, very classy rooms. The ensuites were small but had baths in them. We were on level three in rooms side by side.
The staff were helpful and freindly, they upgraded us to the larger suites at a very low fee. We had booked on priceline so they were under no obligation to do that and cld have charged a fortunue if they wanted.
Theres is a library with free coffee 24/7, a small gym and a restaurant we ate at one night which was very good - not cheap but good wines and food.
The location was exactly what we wanted: easy walk to Grand Central and Time Square, bit further to Central Park and Empire state but not to far.
If you are a family like us, coming from anohter country with no idea what to expect at NY other than what you have read on Trip Advisor, I would reccomend this hotel as one where you will feel welcome, secure and comfortable. Keeping in mind it is not a big chain but an independant boutique hotel.

We booked our room through Priceline for 4 nights April 19 to 23. By bidding we secured a rate of $160/night. The room was small but very well decorated. We had a queen bed, flat screen, mini fridge, and bathroom with tub. Plenty of room for the 2 of us. We had room 203 above the lobby which was not an issue. We had typical street noise (horns, traffic) but in NY that's everywhere. There were no night clubs near the hotel so no noise from party goers or anything like that. The location was relatively calm compared to Times Square just a few blocks away. Staff was great, they gave us a late check out until 2pm our last day there. I would stay at this hotel again, especially at that rate.

Mansfield is well-located more or less between Times Square and Grand Central Station - thus, easy access to east and west side trains. Rooms are quaint, quiet and clean. The bar is comfortable and the sitting room with the espresso machine was a great way to start the day. This was a great value delivered via Priceline ($150/night). I hope to stay there again sometime.

Their people just added to the experience. My colleague left a check and some other items in the Library one morning, and that evening we went to the front desk to ask if they'd been found. The Gentleman behind the desk said they had not, but he came into the library to help us look for them. No luck. The next morning, we discovered they had been turned in. A great inconvenience avoided. The hotel staff seemed to genuinely care about our experience.

Room Tip: Just ask for what you prefer. I am sure they will try to help. This stretch of 44th Street is rela...
