Ordinary dull hotel

This Hotel is located in an old building with uncomfortable beds, and requires major renovation. It's location is O.K. and staff are not that friendly.

A nice comfortable hotel

Murray Hill East Hotel is centrally located in mid- town Manhattan with easy access to most attractions in the City. The junior suite was clean, roomy and tidy, and the little kitchen served our needs for breakfast, snacks and drinks. Staff was helpful and responsive.

Lots of space in NYC

This is probably the biggest hotel room I've had in NY, and for not a ton of money. A little kitchen, sofa, table, it was great. If I was staying for more than a few nights, this would have been even more amazing. Good location a few blocks from Grand Central, and near a ton of great restaurants (though that's true of anywhere in NY, really...). I'd stay here again.

A nice place to stay

It is really a nice place to stay. The only thing annoying me was the noise outside due to some road construction.

affordable and convenient

First the good. The hotel is only two blocks away from The nonstop express shuttle to and from LaGuardia. $12.50 each way. This is the bargain of the century. From our hotel room to our gate at LaGuardia airport took us a total of 37 minutes Sunday morning. The hotel is fairly conveniently located in Midtown, about a 15 minute walk to Times Square. It lies in the shadows of the Chrysler building to the north and the Empire State building to the south. there is an excellent fast food Cuban deli/Panini Café directly across the street. Nearby third Avenue has lots of small one-off shops and restaurants. The hotel is quite dated with fixtures in dire need of refurbishment. However, the rooms are large and very quiet. The hotel is not particularly tall and it never takes long to call an elevator. The hotel provides only skimpy and cheap towel service and toiletries. I would advise bring your own.

.3 miles from grand central and the cheapest price around. We got upgraded to two king size suites. Didn't even realize there was a full kitchen until the second morning. Great place to stay

Stopover in New York City

Great! An excellent value. We didn't utilize the kitchen--which saves a lot of money on meals, but it was well outfitted--much like an extended-stay facility. There was no restaurant/bar, but in NYC that's always just around a corner. The staff was terrific! It's a great value and we would definitely stay there again at that price.

Not a really long walk, but you can get from the theatre district/Times Square easily.

Average room for one night

There was nothing special about the place, was just conveniently located and I stayed for one night which was okay. The room could have been cleaner but was nothing special.

Great Location, Very Friendly

This spot was perfect for us. The primary mode of transportation in NYC is walking and this hotel was just a few steps from Grand Central Station, the Chrysler building, and a great variety of nice restaurants.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

We drove into NYC and were able to drop our Avis rental car just a short walk away. No sense in paying for the car and parking charges when so much (including Grand Central) is within walking distance.
