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.

Decent hotel, with great location

This hotel is perfectly fine for a trip to NY. The rooms are small and worn, but they are clean and the staff is very friendly. You also can't beat the location.

A bit down-at-the-heels, but OK

The room was just OK. It was pretty clean, and had what you would expect. But I wouldn't call it comfortable. The staff was helpful when I needed luggage checked prior to checkin, so I could make my theater date. All in all, it was a reasonable value. And the location is great if you are going to the theater or diamond district. If I were coming back, I would look for another hotel, but if necessary, I would again settle for the Mayfair.

Mayfair Hotel

Great location. Lobby and rooms are worn out and threadbare. AT&T phone service does not work at all. Staff not rude, but not at all accommodating (e.g couldn't even change a $20 bill). Smoke alarm issues that I will not go into here. Too bad because the building's exterior is beautiful, but inside tho place needs a major renovation.

Lillies Victorian Bar - Times Square. 249 West 49th Street is very beautiful and cozy. The food and drinks were good and staff friendly. Also go to Eataly for the most incredible shopping experience for all food Italian.

Excellent!

Very basic but still a great location and a very friendly staff. Super clean. Would recommend if you need a place in Manhattan and their rates are low.

Excellent location for Times Square

A simple hotel, a bit care worn, but an excellent location if you just want a place to stay while seeing the sights. Subway a block away, plenty of eating places local. Good well stocked bar and good food attached to hotel. The staff are very friendly and hard working. I would definitely stay here again if in New York.

Nice affordable hotel

Great location right near Times Square, and a great price for the location. The room was larger than I expected, and the bathroom was huge. Both were very clean, with relatively new tiling and wall papering in both. I was very happy with it, and will definitely come back again.

Amazing location...nice hotel, just small.

This is a cute boutique hotel right in the heart of the Theatre District. The location is superb. The hotel room itself is extremely small, but for as little as we were in the room it worked for us. The staff was friendly, and worked for our budget.

Perfect for the tourist

If you are a tourist I can't think of a better hotel in NYC. The price is fantastic for the location. Almost everything is within walking distance. If I was being picky I'd say the accommodations are dated and a little worn. But my room was clean. the staff courteous, and the value outstanding.
