Front Desk Folks are Liars

Before I get into the hotel as a whole, I want to speak about customer service. Not only when I made the reservation I requested double beds for myself and another male friend, but I called earlier in the week and got an OK, came in at 11AM to confirm before we officially checked in at 4PM and was given an OK, we then show up to check in and the new front desk person would not provide 2 beds. In fact he said, "You have 2 beds as the sofa pulls out." This is not exactly what we were bargaining for. The room was clean, access was great and the location was perfect for our needs.

Unbeatable location for the price

This was our 5th year of staying at Murray Hill. Our group has made this an annual occasion. We shop and return to all of New Yorks many wonderful site seeing locations. Murray Hill is affordable, convient location and rooms are spacious. We will continue to return to Murray Hill as long as we make our annual trips.

Comfortable and Centric

The only thing I would recommend is that the rooms have a little more light. Being girls, getting ready was harder lacking appropriate lighting for putting our makeup on. Other than that everything was amazing!!!

Funky and Great

Three of us were perfectly comfortable in our suite: kitchenette (stove & fridge, but no microwave), TONS of closet/drawer space, lots of seating--though two of us did share a bed. The rooms may be a wee threadbare but seemed perfectly maintained and clean. The staff was fine, answering all our questions and requests thoroughly and promptly. Great location as well!

Large room with complete kitchen

We were very pleased by the space (large bedroom, living room combined with dining room, full bathroom and kitchen) and the staff. The rooms were very clean. We will come back and share the space with another couple to save money. Also ideal when you don't mind cooking to save a bit on restaurants bills.
