The Seton Hotel was a great choice for many reasons: 1. Prime location near Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, Time Square, restaurants & bars 2. Very safe area in Midtown 3. Room was cleaned daily 4. Shared bathroom was perfectly clean & spotless 5. Lobby, rooms & bathrooms looked completely remodeled
There were some downsides: 1. The rooms were on the small side 2. Some of the staff were not as friendly 3. I thought the rooms were a little over priced due to the size and amenities
was upgraded without asking for a room with bathroom rather than sharing. Liked the free coffee 24 hours a day. Loved that direct bus to Newark Airport just 1 block away!
"perfume" used in lobby and room. Air-conditioning unit was noisy.
location hotel cleaness new furniture new bathroom
poor wi-fi noisy air condition small double bed ( like for 1,5 person)
We loved everything about the Seton Hotel! A fab, central location with lots round it, incredibly helpful and friendly staff, beautiful rooms, tea and coffee on tap.. We definitely did not want to leave!
Our little air conditioning unit was very loud and looked a little outdated. We did get used to the noise but I think that was my one complaint.
Yow I had the best experience ever it was quite nice clean friendly it was more than I could have asked for and I will definTely be going back to this same hotel it was awesome and very clean ther services very quick :) I 100% recommend the Seton Hotel
It had this charm about it
The rooms are way too small.
Clean quiet room at the back of the hotel was perfect. Very helpful staff as we ventured out each day. When we return to NYC we will stay at the Seton.
I loved everything about this place! The staff are amazing, the location is great, and the price is amazing (especially when considering the location). I didn't want to leave. Cannot recommend this place enough!!!
Nothing I didn't like about this place!!!
We knew there would be a shared bathroom. The stylish sink and mirror in the room were a pleasant surprise in these circumstances.
Location was great with staff more than helpful would definitely recommend
Nice lobby for coffee. Nice location. Staff very helpfull and kind.
Wifi didn't work in rooms. Noise from the other rooms not from outside.
Great location near Grand Central station, very pleasant staff, 24h coffee/tea.
Unreliable Wi-Fi, some devices had intermittent problems connecting. Noisy A/C.
I was sick whilst staying there and the staff did everything they could to accommodate my needs. They were excellent and all very friendly. I would definitely stay again.
Such friendly staff and so central to everything! This hotel really is no frills but they do it so well. It's cosy and comfortable, clean and you will really enjoy your stay.
What is there not to like?! You are in the greatest city in the world in great value accomodation! :-)
The hotel is in a great mid-town location, near transportation mid-town attractions. The hotel itself is nicely renovated, with modern bathrooms, very comfortable beds, high ceilings in the rooms. Wifi is free and fast. The staff were very helpful and friendly (we had some challenges with our reservation and they were helpful and very reasonable in resolving them).Having a common living room on the ground flood is a plus. Good places for breakfast nearby.
The air conditioning was quite noisy. Lack of onsite exercise facilities and charge for using off-site.
Comfortable, clean, perfectly located a two minute walk from Grand Central Station. Shared bathroom always clean, sink in the room, tv in room. Common room spacious and beautiful.
No fridge in room
Fantastic location within walking distance to Time Square, Empire State Bldg etc. Modern hotel which was nicely decorated and clean. Free tea and coffee in the visitors centre. Lovely lounge and friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.
Loud air con in the room, but that's a minor point
Just a few blocks from Grand Central and a quick subway ride to Times Square (or even walk). Clean rooms, genial desk service, very personal experience overall.
The shared bathroom was a bit bohemian. It was very clean and rarely were there any conflicts.
Close to everything. Small and personable feel.
Room was lovely, clean and reasonably priced.
Wifi kept dropping out.
I was leary of this hotel after reading some of the reviews. Well let me tell you the reviews are wrong this hotel is amazing!!! Everything is new and clean, the staff is extremely helpful not once did we feel like we were bothering them. They gave the best directions!! Our room was comfy and clean and had enough room for 2 adults, 1 preteen and 1 kid. We also had a bathroom that was clean and new also. Some of the rooms have a shared bathroom on the end of the halls, I didnt use them but did peek in and saw that is was just as clean as our room bathroom. So I would have used it if I needed too. It was close to grand central and a little over a mile from penn station. You can walk to times square and fifth ave., there was also a great diner called scottys diner right around the corner we had breakfast there one morning and it was good. This diner is also the place the hotel uses for room service 24 hrs a day, we didnt get room service but like I said we had breakfast there one morning and it was great. All in all its a great hotel with an amazing staff!
Nothing to big but the elevator is def small and can be really hot at times.
The location is insanely good. 5-10 minutes walking from Grand Central, Fifth Avenue, etc. That is key for an optimal visit to the city. Plus the price-quality relation is quite good and the rooms are perfectly fine in all senses.
On my last day, I was asked if I would need anything else apart from leaving the baggage at the hotel. They said they could help me with the taxis but right when we collected the bags to leave, they said they couldn't help us because we were not going to the airport. They didn't make the rules but it was confusing and we were actually counting with that call to any taxi. NY is insane with lots of traffic.
Location great. Went with my son 21 who convinced me a shared bathroom would be ok and it was!!
service excellent and so friendly
