    4 stars | The Shelburne Hotel & Suites by Affinia 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 Gand Central Station and Times Square are also within walking distance. Our room had a view of the Empire – absolutely brilliant!

    Add to myNY added

    4 stars | There are not one but several hotels within a few blocks of the Doubletree By Hilton New York Times Square. In my opinion, the “Times Square West” is the best of the bunch. From the upper rooms you have a great view of the city and there is even a roof terrace.

    3 Stars | The Heritage Hotel New York City is a budget insider tip in the Flatiron District. The rooms are clean (though small) – but you’re right in the middle of the action. It’s perfect for anyone looking for an affordable hotel in a good location. If you are just looking for a room to sleep, so to speak, this is the one for you.

    Add to myNY added

    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! 

  15. 15

    Hotel 31

    Hotels & Accommodations in Midtown Manhattan
    LNY_APP_HOTEL_170522164044001
    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!

  16. 16

    4 Stars | The Millennium Broadway Hotel was called Millennium Times Square until recently and is located – as the name suggests – right in the pulsating heart of Manhattan. Although it is no longer the most modern hotel, it scores points for its location.

    4 stars | MADE Hotel is located in the heart of Midtown and is one of the coolest accommodations in this neighborhood, which I personally love. The hotel is  modern, really nicely designed, contains a lot of greenery (which contributes to the wonderful atmosphere) and has as icing on the cake a rooftop bar & lounge called “Lounge Good Behavior” on the 18th floor of the hotel. The view of the city is really nice! 

    The Empire State Building is only 3 blocks away, Washington Square Park and Union Square are within easy reach, and you don’t even need the subway to get to New York’s many other attractions. The MADE Hotel is located in the Koreatown neighborhood on the border of Murray Hill – that’s why I put it on the list of the best hotels in Murray Hill NYC!

    4 stars | The Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza is also called “ONE UN New York” and is one of the hotels in New York fwith a wunderful view over the East River,  Chrysler and Empire State Building and the newest observation deck The Summit. 

    As the name suggests, you’re right by the UN building in Murray Hill – it’s quiet, there are lots of relaxed bars and restaurants near you. This is the reason why I like Murray Hill so much!

    5 stars | Hotel New York EDITION is located directly at Madison Square Park at the Flatiron Building and therefore perfect for all who are looking for a really nice hotel for their New York trip!

    It is one of the best hotels in the Flatiron District of NYC: the rooms are large even by New York standards, it has huge windows from which you have a fantastic view of the city and has its own Michelin-starred restaurant.

    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!

  24. 24

    Royalton Park Avenue

    4 stars | One of the best hotels in Midtown is the boutique hotel “Royalton Park Avenue”. Besides a wonderful interior (I really like the style), there is even a rooftop bar and pool. 

    This area spans 2 levels: one is the lounge and the second is just the rooftop terrace. So if you want to stay in style in the heart of Manhattan, there’s no way around the Royalton Park Avenue.

    Add to myNY added

    5 stars | The Peninsula Hotel should be included in every list of hotels in New York with the best views of Manhattan. It is located in the center of Manhattan and the skyline seems close enough for you to reach out and touch it. Its location on 55th Street and 5th Avenue means that you can feel the energy of the midst of the city from its terrace. While the views are impressive during the day, they hit a whole ‘nother level as soon as darkness falls. From here you can watch the yellow taxis stream through midtown in the rhythm of the traffic lights and the tiny-looking people hurrying amongst them from above. You can also enjoy this incredible view from your bed  in the spa area thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows. The Peninsulas small rooftop bar – The Salon de Ning – is also a great spot to spend your night!

Of course, it can’t be missing from any such list of the best hotels in city.  The Plaza has become a real New York landmark. So many stars and other illustrious guests have walked through the doors of this iconic building over the years. You likely notice the hotel from the 90s classic movie Home Alone 2. The façade in the style of the French Renaissance and the impressive interior design can also be seen in many other famous productions. The Plaza is located at the southern end of Central Park, not far from 5th Avenue.

    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.

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!
