Individual attention in the Big Apple

From the first contact we had with the doorman to the final contact with a different doorman, our treatment at Murray Hill East was superb! It felt personal but not overwhelming. The suite-style room was great for a grandmother/mother/daughter group. Having the kitchen saved us some money, and the pull-out sofa was actually comfortable as a bed. All the amenities were topnotch

Great Hotel

The location is perfect, it's only a few blocks from the empire state, grand central terminal, fifth avenue, etc. The room was very comfortable, there was a full equipped kitchen, a living room with 2 tv's with cable. I recommend this hotel to everyone.

Fantastic family break

This hotel ticks all the boxes. Location is fantastic, quiet yet close to major landmarks. The staff were great, nothing was a problem. The rooms were the best I've seen in NYC and the cleanliness was first class. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, and will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

Excellent value for money !

Great central location. Plenty of room. Clean & tidy. Comfy beds. Modern bathroom, plenty of hot water. Really useful to have the kitchen. Helpful, friendly staff. Would stay here again if returning to NYC. (Tip - rooms on back avoid the front road noise, if you are a light sleeper)

GOOD 4 NIGHT STAY

The Hotel was well located, staff helpful, room ideal. We had no issues at all, and enjoyed our stay. Maybe it would help if you could get wifi in your room, we had an apartment, which covers all our needs. We were able to walk to shops, and get around really easily from here.

My 2-week stay was divided: one week for leisure and the other for business. Selecting this hotel accomplished both.

nice location

Overall excellent hotel. Could use a bit of updating on towels and the microwave. Otherwise perfect location and a full kitchen in the unit & double pane windows. Plus HD television with most the channels in full HD(not SD stretch).

Excellent Girls' Getaway!

The room was extremely large by NY standards, with 2 double beds, table and chairs for eating, a desk, dresser, loveseat, kitchenette and 2 closets! Lots of space to walk around in. The staff was very friendly, helpful and there is a business center with computers and printers for guest use, free of charge! I've stayed in other NY hotels and this was the largest and best one for sharing that I've ever been in! I will recommend this hotel to everyone I talk to!

Salvation Tacos were delicious. No food in NY is cheap, but the ambiance, staff and food were great. It is literally 2 doors down from the hotel!
