Great value

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at just $125/night. Given it's location, that was an absolute steal! Comparable hotels in the area were $350+/night. The staff was hit/miss - most were very friendly and helpful but one of the front desks ladies was somewhat rude. The doormen were all nice and helpful. The rooms were very large and comfortable/clean; definitely outdated but very large and cozy. We stayed in a one king room that had a large, separate living room with another pullout bed and large TV, plus a separate kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen was fairly small but had everything you need (fridge, microwave, stove, pots/pans, etc.). Although this was not a "modern" hotel by any means, I would highly recommend it if you get a good deal. Only a few blocks from Grand Central Station, which made getting around the whole city very easy!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

I would highly recommend the new 9/11 museum. It was definitely heartbreaking to see, but a great tribute to all of the victims of the attacks and well worth the money to see. Just a short walk to Grand Central Station and a quick subway trip right down to the memorial.

Great Size Apartment

I was surprised by the size of the apartment, with kitchen, great size living room and great size bedroom. The beds were comfort too and the location was great, quiet and at the same time close to restaurants and museums. The only issue was the cleanliness, my apartment kitchen still had trash on the trash can and the refrigerator had a bottle of milk.

Excellent accommodation for friends or family holiday.

Not a hip modern hotel but the Murray Hill has large rooms, very well equipped kitchen and although slightly dated is clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive from front of desk and doormen to cleaning staff. I would be happy to return here.

Scotty's Diner on the corner of 39th and Lexington is excellent for breakfasts as healthy or decadent as you want.

Not Bad, Great Location

We enjoyed ourselves at this hotel. The location was great, the price was moderate, the room was quiet and spacious. Some of the amenities were a bit worn, but not bad. We especially enjoyed the service of the door men, who were extremely helpful and pleasant. We would come back here again.
