Perfect Location - Worth it for Price

Although it is a bit pricey for the quality you're getting, you have to realize that you're staying in a great location! Only a few minutes away from Grand Central in Manhattan is money! Stayed here for New Year's. The staff was VERY friendly. Hotel was great!

nice place to stay if visting New Yrok

We wanted a hotel with a kitchen. Our room had a kitchen, living room and bedroom at a price most places charge for a one room. It was about a 10 minute walk to grand central station and you could also walk to time square. Very nice staff. The maid service was good too. Would stay there again.

Big and Beautiful!

Not the hotel itself, (which is quite small), but the room which was spacious, beautifully decorated and well-appointed. The kitchenette had everything you need and was a great bonus. I was with a friend who stays in NYC often and she was amazed by the value and said she would stay there on her future trips.

Lots of space, good location

Room was HUGE and clean. Bed extemely comfortable. Suite had living room, eating area, small kitchen, bath, and large king bedroom. Stove in the kitchen is the old fashioned flame burner type. Dishes are old - didnt feel comfortable using them. Bath was old - but clean. Front desk staff was not very friendly nor helpful. But overall price was right for huge room and good location.

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.

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.
