    4 stars | This charming boutique hotel has two stylish restaurants and a bar. The Herald Square underground station is in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. Each of the spacious rooms is individually designed.

    4 Stars | The Archer Hotel is a boutique hotel right on Bryant Park – the perfect location! The rooms are truly stylish and from some of them you can even see the Empire State Building. What we also liked: the small bar on the roof of the hotel!

    4 Stars | This beautiful hotel is pretty much right where you want to be during your (first) visit to New York: just around the corner from the Empire State Building! This place isn’t only exceptionally stylish, it also has a rooftop bar and terrace from where you have a sensational view of New York – and the Empire State Building from up close, of course. Hard to beat.

    Hilton Garden Inn West 35th Street

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan

    3 Stars | The Hilton Garden Inn West 35th Street made it onto my list of the best hotels in New York, not only because it’s sensationally located – many of the most famous sights like the Empire State Building, Bryant Park and Times Square are all within easy walking distance. But also because its price-performance-ratio is outstanding!

    Hotel 31

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Add to myNY added

    2 Stars | Hotel 31 is located between Park and Lexington Heights on 31st Street, hence the name. Around the hotel there are various cafés, restaurants & bars – we were really satisfied! The Empire State Building, Times Square, Herald Square and Madison Square Park are within easy walking distance. The hotel is almost a bargain by New York standards: prices for double rooms start at 120 EUR (excluding breakfast). The rooms are deliberately kept simple, but this is absolutely fine for a couple of nights. And you will likely use your hotel room mostly for sleeping anyway. Some rooms have their own bathroom – others have a shared bathroom on the same floor and an extra bathroom with toilet. These are cleaned several times a day and are therefore pretty much spotless. The hotel won’t win any design awards in the near future, but the location, the price and the cleanliness make Hotel 31 a recommendation!

    Kimpton Hotel Eventi

    Hotels & Accommodations in Chelsea

    5 Stars | This luxurious boutique hotel is one of the top addresses in Chelsea. The in-house restaurant serves everything: breakfast, lunch as well as dinner à la carte.

    Moxy NYC Chelsea

    Hotels & Accommodations in Chelsea
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | The Moxy NYC Chelsea is one of my insider tips in New York, because it meets my taste exactly: it is built in factory loft style, so you can expect floor-to-ceiling windows with great room height. The view is magnificent, the staff is super nice and everything is freshly renovated. This is how a New York hotel should be!

  8. 08

    The Refinery Hotel

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Our Highlight
    Add to myNY added

    4 Stars | I can’t recommend the Refinery Hotel highly enough – it is ideally located (only two blocks away from Bryant Park), has one of the most relaxed rooftop bars in the entire city (with a view of the Empire State Building) and the rooms are large and nicely furnished. You’ll definitely feel at home here!

  9. 09

    The Setai Fifth Avenue

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    Add to myNY added

    5 stars | The Setai Fifth Avenue at the Empire State Building was once called “The Langham” and is a luxury hotel with great service that impresses couples in particular. The Langham Place, New York, Fifth Avenue is located in the city’s most popular neighborhood and has great public transportation connections.

    The rooms are very modernly furnished and just under 40m² in size. The bathrooms convince with shower and bathtub and a TV integrated in the mirror. Sports enthusiasts will love the in-house gym, which is very well equipped, and gastro fans will be delighted with the Michelin-starred restaurant. Being right next to the Empire State Building, The Setai Fifth Avenue is perfectly situated for a day of sightseeing in New York.

    This hotel at the Empire State Building is particularly suitable for travelers with a slightly higher travel budget, as the Langham Palace is not entirely inexpensive, but something very special in any case!

    Pestana Park Avenue

    Hotels & Accommodations in Murray Hill
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | The Pestana Park Avenue is for me one of the most beautiful hotels in Murray Hill: the hotel rooms are really big for New York standards, very nice and modern furnished and some of them even have a balcony from which you can look at the city and especially at the Empire State Building. It has only recently opened, so the furnishings from the lobby to the terrace to the rooms are all up to date.

    Attractions like Bryant Park and Grand Central Station are within a few minutes walking distance, you are in the heart of the city!

    The Shelburne Sonesta New York

    Hotels & Accommodations in Murray Hill
    Our Highlight
    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | The Shelburne Hotel is located in Murray Hill between 37th and 38th Street and is one of my personal recommendation. We ourselves have stayed at this hotel several times …

    It is very close to attractions like the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. The shopping street 5th Avenue, Park Avenue, as well as the Grand Central Station and Times Square are also within walking distance. Our room had a view of the Empire – absolutely brilliant!
