Really nice

Our family spent 5 nights in this centrally located hotel. Spacious, clean, comfortable and pleasant to stay. The only two comments we had was, one no complementary Internet, but I guess that's standard in NYC, and second microwave missing in the kitchen. Overall well recommended.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Not always high on the list of attractions, but it is a must doing - visit the park under Brooklyn bridge around sunset, it provides the best relaxed moments with beautiful photos of NYC skyline.

Pleasant surprise

This was my first trip back to NY since relocating to San Diego almost 2 years ago , so it was kind of an emotional moment for me, so just let me say Murray Hill was just what I needed. It felt like home the moment I walked into my room...cozy..warm. I'm already looking forward to my second stay with them. What a gem this place turned out to be.

Great hotel, great location, great value

We have stayed here several times while getting medical care in Midtown. Great value for the area! Easy walking distance from metro. Nice quiet location. Clean rooms and very friendly staff. Will be returning for sure.

A Perfect Weekend

The hotel was perfect for our family reunion. We had a comfortable suite. The front desk made good recommendations regarding local restaurants. We were easily able to get cabs and walk to other venues. We would happily return to this hotel.

Cabin Fever

This hotel is so out-dated that I felt as if I was staying at a relative's mountain cottage that was built in the 1940s and not renovated since. It was very convenient for me, but also uncomfortable. Adequate if you are solo and on the fly, but I can't recommend it to anyone.

Murray Hill East Hotel

The Suites at the Murray East Hotel are very spacious and great if you are planning an extended trip in the city. As other reviewers have noted, the decor is a bit dated and the kitchenettes could benefit from an upgrade. Overall this is great for the price.
