Intimate, European-style boutique hotel in the Theater District
This intimate, European-style hotel is a contrast to its surrounding neighborhoods -- the showy and loud Theater District and Times Square. Where Midtown Manhattan is big and loud, the Mayfair New York Hotel is cozy and understated. Amenities include a business center and around-the-clock concierge service. Special touches such as fresh flowers in the rooms are unexpected in a property of this size.
Highlights
  • Around-the-clock concierge service
  • Next to the Eugene O'Neill Theater
  • Near theaters, Times Square entertainment and shopping
Location

The hotel puts guests steps away from Broadway shows. The Mayfair New York Hotel is adjacent to the Eugene O'Neill Theater and a block from the Gershwin Theater. Carnegie Hall, Central Park and Rockefeller Center are a short walk. The nearest subway station is one block away.

Rooms

Unwind in European-style rooms that feature toile wallpaper, custom-designed mahogany furniture and fine linens. Some rooms have marble bathrooms. Rooms are equipped with hairdryers, ironing boards and complimentary wall safes. Rooms with a computer and printers are available upon request.

Features

Famed Theater District and Times Square restaurants are near the hotel. Ellen's Stardust Diner on Broadway is open all day and features classics like meatloaf and chicken potpie and a singing waitstaff. Gallagher's Steakhouse serves classic New York steakhouse specialties include dry-aged steak and lobster for lunch and dinner. Visit Bobby Flay's Bar Americain for star chef power. Expect classic cocktails, a raw bar and American classics such as shrimp and grits for lunch and dinner.

Too Tiny & No Coffee

The staff were very nice. They gave good directions. They listened carefully to our requests, but did not always follow through. Had to request ice. Complimentary Wifi did not work, only worked in the lobby. There was no coffee available anywhere in the hotel, would be a welcome touch in the winter especially. The room was very small, windows looked to brick exteriors, somewhat claustrophobic. Bed was small and not comfortable. Room was very stuffy. I would not book there again, only out of utter necessity.

Great location, great value, small room

When in New York City, you don't really want to be spending too much time in the actual hotel room, so the fact that the room was very small wasn't a problem at all. The staff was extremely friendly, the hotel restaurant is very good, and the location is unbeatable. It's in the middle of the Theater District and right next to Times Square. Great price for the location.

It Could Have Been Worse; I Wish it Was Better

I was in NYC for a two-day stay. Having previously stayed in Manhattan with a national hotel chain (which I felt was grossly overpriced) I was happy to find a less expensive hotel. However, I did not presume that a lower price meant substantially lower quality. The overall architecture of the building is beautiful; however, it appears that no effort is being made to maintain the building or upgrade the rooms. My room had peeling wall paper, chipped paint, and the carpet was such that I was afraid to remove my shoes. I did not have any control over heat in my room; I was told that I could use an air conditioner (in November!) to regulate the heat. I found stray hairs in the bathroom, and the only "new" thing in the room was the flat screen TV (complete with local channels). That stated, the staff were friendly. I'm planning to return to NYC in the future, and had hoped that this would be my go-to hotel; unfortunately, I am going to have to continue my search for reasonably priced accommodations that meet minimum quality standards.

Unpretentious

The location combined with the low cost is probably unbeatable in mid Manhattan. Their are no bells and whistles and the rooms are small but comfortable with a large flat screen TV on the wall.The bar and Cielo Restaurant are excellent and fun. The food is excellent with a decided Italian emphasis. The Letterman Show, Music Director Paul Shaefer was propping up the bar when I went down for lunch.He's a regular there. The hotel was patronized by many Broadway actors over the years . It sits right next to the O'Neil Theater . Don't bring the kids.

Older Hotel great location

Spent one night, location great. Room small, but not any different than most NYC rooms. Staff very nice. Hotel a bit worn, but clean. No ability to control heat and got a bit warm and had to keep window cracked in very cold weather, shame to be so wasteful. Great value for the money for midtown/Times Square hotel.

Cozy means tiny. Convenient is All

The Mayfair makes NY City your playground. Pretend it''s a Pension in Europe. NO Coffee!! Not in the room or in the lobby. Room was tiny. Needed a real vacuuming. Bathroom door was hard to close & door handle almost came off. Only 3 people can fit in the elevator. Lime shampoo = yummy. Charm: check. Space: no. Might even go again.
