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.

Perfect for a quick over night stay

I stayed here recently for work - I live well outside the suburbs and needed to come to NYC for an early meeting the next day. My office is in Times Square, so this place provided a perfect location and cheap option. All I'm doing is sleeping there and taking a shower, so I will never need more than this place. Place is very outdated, but not a deterrent.

Except location, big zero on everything

Not a pleasant experience in our vacation at all. Except the location which is close to Time Square, didnt like anything. The room was too small, AC was broken and we had turn it off coz of its noise. The stuff present in the reception sounded very rude when asked to check the non-functioning telephone. Eventually replaced with a very old dirty one.

Short New York Trip

The location of the Mayfair cannot be beat. It's located in the middle of the theater district and is a very short walk to Times Square, Fifth Avenue shopping, and the subway. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and pleasant. The room prices are cheap considering where you're staying, but the hotel definitely shows it's age. The carpet on the stairs is threadbare and the walls could use a good paint job. We stayed in a king room, with windows facing the street, which was nicer, but still very small. My friend stayed in a standard room and it was very tiny. The wall heater was quite loud and the wifi did not work. If you do not mind shabby surroundings, it's a very convenient location at a reasonable price for midtown.
