Great stay at Seton Hotel
Got a nice upgrade at check-in. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was modern and clean. Bed was very comfortable.

Quick and easy New York trip.
I booked this hotel for a quick weekend trip to see friends. Quick booking response on questions and affordable prices for a 2 double bed room with bathrooms. Convenient location in midtown east area. Checking in room keys when leaving may seem odd or old fashion in today’s age of keycard hotel rooms, but having a physical key to turn in can make going out on the town easier, knowing you won’t lose the key. Hotel staff was very friendly. 24 hour access to the lobby makes it easier to get in late at night after going out.

Perfect Location
Location was great, 1 minute from our office. Room was very clean and it was quiet. Would definitely stay here again.

Good value for money. Exceptional staff.
Great location: quiet street and central. The hotel pays great attention to details: very clean rooms, excellent staff. Rooms are small but not that small by NYC standard. And there is a lounge room with cosy sofas and chairs if you want to do some work during the day. Wifi is excellent

Poor 2.0
Small hotel not fantastic...
Room was cozy. The television worked. Was trapped in the small elevator during my stay. At least one of the bathrooms were clean for each time I needed to use it. Several times the bathrooms were unavailable. Only the front desk staff was friendly. Not worth the money charged by the hotel and

Very hot room
The room was excruciatingly hot such that I had to run the AC all night in December

An OK choice
Hotel has a good location, convenient to grand central station and numerous restaurants. I requested a street-facing room and they accommodated. By 3:15 pm my room still wasn't serviced so I ended up just passing all together, and the heat was oppressive and couldn't be adjusted down. On the positive side, the windows did open so the cold air coming in offset the intense heat.

Beware of shared bathroom option
The hotel is in a great location, easily accessible for public transport. I did not realize the shared bathroom that was booked, so that was a surprise. However I ended up with a room next the the private bathroom on the hallway. The room though was a shoe box, small and just a small window with no view. Overall though it is a nice hotel and I only needed a place to sleep and shower with no time to spend in the room anyway, so it was OK.
