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

Friendly Staff

I was kindly offered a choice of rooms upon check in. I chose a large basement room w/kitchenette...and added bonus that more than compensated for it being a basement room was that it opened onto secluded garden like space...a great private space for the money. This hotel gives travelers the feel of coming home to their own little 80's NYC apt. As with any older building, there were periodic issues with a lack of hot water and the a/c wasn't as exactly cold. Overall this was a great value and a comfortable room.

Great place to stay

This hotel is at very good location. it is very close to grand central. And the room is much bigger than I expected. There's a living room with sofa, TV and table, a bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen. I think even 3-5 people can stay in on suite. And when I book it with discount code, it only cost me $273 for one night. It was really great deal considering its location and overall comfort.

Great Hotel for Families

This is a great hotel especially for families with young kids. The bedroom and living room being separate helped all the family. On top of that having a fully equipped kitchen not only helped us save on food cost but also feed the kids that would wake up at 3 am because of jet lag. Location is also good. Three blocks to Grand Central which you can go anywhere once you get to it. To conclude, strongly recommend families with children and travelling from overseas.

LOCATION RULES!!!! Perfect for the family

Absolutely Great Location, everything is close and convenient and the rooms are very spacious and the included kitchen is awesome especially if you travel with the small kids. Staff was excellent at all levels. Sofa bed is horrible but all are (not the hotels fault) so try for 2 beds if possible. As a tourist you are out of the room for most of the day so location is key, the rooms are clean and comfortable, NO Wi-Fi is my only complaint.

New York first timers!

Hotel location was perfect! 3 blocks away from Grand Central Station. Also wasn't a lot of street noise at night. Room was quite large, has a small kitchen with stove & fridge. Separate living room & bedroom. Hotel is older but for the price, space, & quiet street. Would definitely recommend!

Nice Suite in a Great Location

This hotel offers nice comfortable suites equipped with a kitchenette. Our suite had a king-sized bed and a queen sleeper sofa. Nestled in the Murray Hills neighborhood of Manhattan, it was quiet and only a few blocks from the Metro at Grand Central Station.

"Scotty's Diner" is a block away and is open 24 hours per day. It offers local tastes and is reasonably priced. Side note: avoid the "House of Lasagna" next door as it was very pricey and was not very good.

Our First New York Vacation

The hotel is in a quiet section of Manhattan about 3 blocks from Grand Central Station, where you can access not only trains, but the subway. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well as the doormen. The room was very clean, spacious, with a small kitchenette (stove, refrig, dishwasher, sink,cabinets, counter space and utensils) The bathroom is small, but there is counter space and a cabinet under the sink for toiletries. Two, tall and spacious closets with shelves and rods. We had a queen size bed that was not very comfortable, but wasn't horrible. The rooms were soundproof and I never heard any of the other people.

A bagel shop right around the corner was very good. An Italian restuarant just down the street was also excellent. There is a fresh-food deli market about 4-5 blocks away. Starbucks and Dunkn Donuts 2 blocks away.
