Nothing Spectacular

We did not spend much time in the room. It was a nice place. We didn't have any issues with anything. The check out process was tedious b/c they are not up to speed.

Always a Great Stay!!

I have stayed many times at this hotel and always have an enjoyable stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious which is a find in New York where rooms are generally small. The full kitchen is an added bonus and the location can't be topped 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.

It's a value

This hotel is great - it's actually a transformed apt building. The suites are former one-bed apt units with full kitchens and big bedrooms. One thing it is not is ritzy - the decor is very standard, but king bed was great, furnishings in excellent shape, bathroom was spotless an all in working order and location blocks from Grand Central was great. Neighborhood had plenty of dinner options. We will come back. The rate - about $150 night with all of the taxes - makes is a real steal.

Great view

Upon getting into the room the bellman showed us around including the patio off the bedroom and kitchen. It included furniture out there with a great view of the Chrysler Building. Very nice kitchen which saves money as there is a conveinence store at the corner which has the essentials. Located near all tourist attractions. Overall I was very happy as was my family and we will stay here again on our next trip back to NY.

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.

Very Convient Location!

The Murray Hill East is always comfortable, large clean rooms with kitchen facilities. I love the location, very convenient, it's in a decent neighborhood and only two blocks from Airport Shuttles every 15 minutes, 24 hour drugstore and grocery, hair salon, lots of cafe's and upscale diners and only three blocks from Grand Central and all Subways. However if traffic noise keeps you awake at night get something above the fourth floor. I always stay on the third floor and sleep fine but I used to live in the city. I've stayed here twice and will stay at Murray Hill East again next year!

Airport Shuttles only two blocks away. Grand Central and all Subways only three blocks away. 24 hour drug store and groceries 2-3 blocks away, hair salon and upscale diners 1-to-2 blocks away. The neighborhood is decent and you're close enough to see the top of Empire State Building.

i never gave 5 stars before and this is not because this place is a palace but it's the best price I ever paid in NYC and has a living room area, dinning area sprate large bedroom and a separate kitchen, Amazing. Carpets and decor is dated but who cares given the price and it gave sprate sleeping areas fo me'n'my mom.
