Manhattan Midtown Hotels - The variability of comments on Tripadvisor is doing my head in. Users of this forum, being discerning travellers, where would you stay in Manhattan Midtown (or anywhere else in Manhattan) if work is NOT paying. Tha!

Go to hilton.com they have rooms from US $ 108 per night .i think the Hilton hotels in New York City have the best choice ,I always use them as have about 15/20 hotels in the area. Look at joining H'Honors which is free so you can get the benefits .hope this helps

Just came back from NYC last week. Stayed in a standard King Room at the IHG Staybridge Suites Times Square. It offers a kitchenette with electric stove, microwave, cooking utencils, plates and cutlery. Free Wifi, Free buffett breakfast and afternoon "social meetings" in the hotel's bistro with free snacks.

It is located right next to the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 40th Street so if you take the NYC Airporter it's only a 5 min walk. Also it's right next to Times Sq and all the Broadway theatres so all within walking distance.

Depends what you want from a hotel & your budget, if its purely a mid town address you're most likely going to get a large chain. However if you can stretch down to Flatiron I recommend Ace Hotel. Hotel Americano in Chelsea is also nice, with an excellent roof top bar/restaurant. Both within easy reach of Midtown

I have stayed at the Sofitel on W 44 Street, and it was fantastic!

My suggestion would have to be Chelsea, West Village, Greenwich or just through Washington Square park into Soho, its greener and a tad more relaxed than midtown and after a day doing the tourist thing it's a welcome relief.

The public transport is so easy, you have multiple metro lines on the Avenue of Americas, and you won't get trampled by tourists or ripped off in tourist traps. There is great cafes, dinners and excellent cutting edge restaurants.

Hotel wise –

  1. Washington Square Hotel (Greenwich), comfortable quality, not overpriced, great customer service;
  2. Maritime Hotel (Chelsea), a new York experience, the price is not to over the top;

Dependent on duration (+4 days) have a look at an apartment in the West Village vicinity, they are an excellent way of experiencing New York…

Have a great trip.
