First New York Trip

Bed linens were dirty and the room old with no noticeable effort to modernize the room. The staff were very nice and welcoming giving good directions and information, but I would look for other places to stay in the future.

Awesome location in New York City

Convenient location. Just a walk away from Times Square. There's a small church in front if it too for those who are a bit religious. Helpful and approachable staff. Rooms are quite small but no big deal.

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.

ONLY AN AVERAGE VALUE

The hotel seems to have been a nice hotel that had been refurbished 10 to 20 years ago. It's time to work on it. First of all, the hotel is not handicapped accessible. Three granite steps from the street lead to another couple of steps to get into the lobby. Only one handrail at the street which is often blocked by smokers. Room is small (as are all NYC hotels).. No information in the room about hotel amenities. Shower only, no tub. Before I stayed there again I would do a little more research on other hotels in the area.

Renewal of 49th Street

I well remember the urban decay during the Koch/Trump years,(though I do have a soft spot for the Mayor)when homelessness proliferated and the filth took over that area. The Mayfair is BACK -yes, rooms are TEENY,the heating/cooling is old, there isn't wifi, but there IS a sense of history,of ghosts of theatre visitors past and a gentility that comes with a building that has LIVED...The staff were warm and caring, the building was CLEAN...Will go there again!

Good for those who just wants a place to sleep

It is extremely well located in the heart of NYC. It doesn't get any better. However, the place is old, there is no luxury at all. The room is just a bed with some little space to get to the bathroom, wich is decent.The staff was pretty polite too.It's for those who just wants a place to sleep, and nothing else...

Totally Disappointed!!!!!

Regretably, the only thing extraordinary about the Mayfair is the location. Literally, it's a distance of feet from the theaters and time square. The amenities were horrible. The air conditioning in my room was not working well. Then, it completely stopped working. I was told there was nothing they could do, until the next day. The room was so hot that I could not sleep in it. I got up in the middle of the night and was tempted to sleep in the lobby, because it was so hot. The next evening, my last night there, I was put into a better room. I repeatedly asked for and try to contact a manager, after I got home. Still unsuccessful. The desk clerk seemed very aloof and uncaring about my situation. Extremely slow internet service, moldy smells, tiny rooms and dirty carpets.
