Great Stay As Always

I love this hotel and have stayed many times. I find it very clean and homey and having the kitchen and the spacious rooms makes it very special (especially in New York where rooms are generally small.) The staff is nice and the location can't be beat for getting anywhere in Manhattan.

spacious accommodations

I was surprised to find myself in a spacious apartment with a large living/dining area, bedroom and kitchen--all separate rooms. The location was very convenient--just a few blocks from Grand Central Station in a real neighborhood with grocery stores, drug stores, and delis. Internet access was not easily available, but I used Kinko's at the corner.

great room size

The Murray Hill East Hotel had the best sized rooms compared to other hotels on our trip. Very large... Separate bedroom & kitchen. Great. It was also very quiet, which was much appreciated in New York. The location was great - 3 blocks from Grand Central and the metro, and close to restaurants and shops. Reasonably priced. Very Satisifed.

Terrific space for the money

I was looking for an apartment situation in midtown and this perfectly suited my needs. Not terribly modern, but the staff was very friendly.

Confortable and clean

This was my 1st stay at the Murray Hill East Suites. I would definitely stay again. I had the jr. queen suite. It was huge! very comfortable and very clean and quiet. I even had a small view of the East River. The hotel is on a shady side street on the east side of NYC within easy walking distance (1/2 block) to some great local east side coffee shops for breakfast and the subway and/or bus (at Lexington Ave) for shopping and/or sightseeing. Next time I will be with my husband - he'll love the roominess in the suite and the convenient location. I have already recommended this hotel to some friends and relatives - it's that good.

Friendly staff, large room

My stay at the Murray Hill East Hotel was very satisfying. The staff was friendly, and I was upgraded to a suite...huge by NYC standards. The information sheet on neighborhood historic buildings was a nice touch, and there was a gourmet deli and other good places to eat in close walking distance.

Great Location

The Murray Hill East is in a great location, within easy walking distance of Grand Central Station and Fifth Avenue shopping. The room was large, with a very comfortable bed. It was very clean, although it could use some sprucing up, e.g., there were a few stains on the carpet.

Great Place to Stay in Manhatten

We were very pleasantly surprized at how nice our stay turned out. This hotel is in a very convenient location. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was great and we would probably stay there again. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to put a small microwave oven in the rooms to heat up leftovers.
