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

Good little get away

This hotel was really nice and they were really understanding with the check in and check out. The hotel was a little old fashioned, but Its not like we stayed in the hotel all day. It was close enough to time square, so it was more convenient to walk instead of taking a lot of cabs. The only negative thing was that there was no microwave in the kitchen and you had to pay almost $10 for wifi a night. Otherwise, great location and great staff! Not to mention great price! I would definitely stay here again.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk everywhere and make use of the subway! That way you can avoid paying for cabs. Plus there's so much to see everywhere you walk, that you will not even realize how far you have walked.

Murray Hill East = Sweet

Our stay here was pretty ideal. The location was most convenient and everything about the facility was just as described. We were given an upgrade to a larger suite, as I believe they were undergoing upgrades and refurbishes om several suites. This building was built in 1964 and the last extensive remodel was likely in the late 80s or early 90s - so upgrades are ongoing. The staff was helpful and courteous. We will certainly consider staying here in the future.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Since you'll have a full kitchen here, you'd like for grocery shopping to be easy - and it is. D'Agostino's is very close by, has reasonable prices and a good selection. We made the mistake of going to Trader Joe's in Union Square - too far and extremely crowded !!

Great value and location

The hotel is really close to shopping and the subway. The staff was really helpful and nice. The size of the suite was great! On the negative side, the hotel is really dated. Though the bed itself is comfortable, the street noise makes it difficult to sleep.

Check out Ellen 's Stardust Diner (Times Square) and Ars Nova Theater Company (54th St and 10th Ave). Stardust has an awesome singing/performing wait staff and Ars Nova is a small but awesome Off Broadway theater (general admission).

Location!

Great hotel if you want space in NYC. It's more like a studio apt. than a hotel room. Rooms not fancy but I love this hotel.
