Profile: Midtown East

Profile: Midtown East

Midtown East - Grand Central is where you'll find some of New York City’s most influential sights. Sample some international restaurants before beginning your sightseeing tour at Bryant Park. Head north for family festivities at Rockefeller Center.

From seasonal traditions and summertime entertainment to popular daytime television and historic buildings, it’s easy to spend an entire day at Rockefeller Center. Don’t miss the beautiful St. Paul’s Cathedral or the stunning Chrysler Building; and finally, no visit to Midtown East - Grand Central is complete without a photo at the United Nations Headquarters and walk through Grand Central Terminal.

    Gem of a hotel in a great location

    The junior suite was very roomy with a beautiful view of the NY Public Library. The king room which some of our family had as was smaller but well appointed and it was very convenient and private to have both rooms sharing an entry way off the main hall. The bathrooms worked great with a separate vanity and well lit mirror providing ample counter space for toiletries. Staff were thoughtful and attentive. Furnishings are delightful especially for book lovers. Location is fantastic with easy access to Bryant Park for morning coffee and pastry.

    Great location. Easy access to Grand Central and walking distance to midtown activities. Rooms are clean and the staff is very nice. Only thing missing from previous stays was the continental breakfast.

    NYC

    I couldn't fault the staff and service. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The main issue was the size of the room. We were informed that this was a petite double room however it seemed to me that this room was for one person. The wardrobe was for one person, there were complimentary slippers for one person and a single bathrobe. All of this tells me that this room is not suitable for a couple. Everything else about our stay was excellent.

    Having "themed" rooms with books on shelves in the room matching the theme is really wonderful, as is the "library" layout of the breakfast room and lobby.
