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

First trip to New York

We booked for price and got much more. The staff was GREAT. Thr suite was more than enough space. The kitchen was wonderful. We could walk and site see with no problems. Times square was just a short walk and we enjoyed the sites o the way. LOL the food in Harlem was Great...but go early the cabs were hard to find after a late dinner, but ask the host and they will point out a towncar for you.

New York Getaway

The staff was always pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and we really enjoyed the 1 bedroom suite. It was great that we didn't have to sit on the bed all of the time. The location was fine, but it was a little involved to get to the other side of town. We would recomend it to anyone planning on a trip to NYC!

Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to get to anywhere. If you take a taxi you will be fine, but the subway does take a while.

Go for it!

We had a 3 day girls time away in NYC starting on 7/4th. The hotel staff were very helpful and the room was great - having a kitchenette was really nice. Parking was only 2 blocks away and discount given - $25 per 24 hrs - can't beat that in the city! Many restaurants and pubs close by and great grocery store. Subway 3 blocks away which was another convenience. Must go to lobby tho for free wireless - I just didn't bother! Would go back in a heartbeat...especially for the great price we paid

Nice stay

Stayed from July 3 - July 5. We had room 702 at the corner of the 7th floor. Good: View was nice. Suite was very big. Air conditioners worked great. Bed was large and comfy. The kitchen has everything you need: pots, pans, plates, bowls, knifes, spoons, forks, can opener, huge refrigerator, stove, water kettle, dish washer. TV has cable channels. Close walk to Grand Central and bus right outside on Lex. Convenient. Tiny gym in the basement, has 2 treadmills, 1 sitback bike, a set of weights, 1 stairmaster, and a larger machine .. like a home gym. Has cold water in the gym. I got a deal on this hotel ... $110/night (not including taxes). Bad: Pillows are very plump, ending up having to sleep with my head on the bed. There are only 2 elevators. When hotel is crowded, there is a wait for it. Also, the cleaning staff uses the same elevators for laundry so you might have to wait for the next elevator. Would stay again.
