Charming Hotel in Central Location

Cons: New carpet in rooms,
Location: Bryant Park
A friend and I met in New York for the weekend to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden. We had three days in the city, and plans and places to be, both uptown and downtown so location was my main criteria when choosing a hotel. We went with the Mayfair because it's in the middle of the city and close to plenty of subway stations. It was really decently priced, and although the building and fixtures are old, it was clean and held plenty of charm. The shower was hot and had good water pressure, the bed was comfortable, the room had plenty of space, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We ate italian at Cielo (attached to the hotel) on Saturday and it was great. It's not the most luxurious hotel, but the Mayfair New York was the perfect little home base for our quick, but busy weekend. *Just a note, I live in a city myself, and am used to the noise, but if you're sensitive to that when you sleep, be warned that rooms on the front of the hotel are susceptible to a lot of street noise.

Ok. No value for money.

Carpets are totally worn out and look very dirty. Age old lift. Bathroom and linen were clean. AC was extremely noisy beyond tolerance. No tea, coffee or breakfast facility in the hotel.

Great location!!

Location: Restaurant was very good joined to hotel
Hotel was great. Very cozy, staff was very nice and helpful. Was central located to anything you needed to get to. Subway down the block. Right in Broadway district. Check in at 3:00 pm no earlier than that. Will take your luggage until check in but not into room. Room very comfortable, beds/pillows soft. Will definitely stay again!!!

Great location and price

Pros: The location, price, and cleanliness.
Cons: A fridge in the room would be great, but I don't think it would fit.
Location: The hotel is right in Times Square - tons of stores, restaurants and shows.
We were staying for a week and needed a good deal on a hotel that was close to the metro line. The Mayfair worked out great for us. The location was perfect. It was quiet and the staff was wonderful. The hotel restaurant was good, too - we ate there for lunch one day. The room was small but had everything we needed, and it was clean. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

Much Better Choices Available Nearby

Pros: Friendly staff.
The lobby area, though small, was acceptable. The air conditioning in our room barely worked and the room never got below 80 degrees. In addition, the motor was so loud, you could hardly hear the television. NYC hotels are known to be small, but this was poorly laid out. We had to put the chair in the closet to navigate around the room. The rooms and the hallways were old and shabby. There are many other better choices available nearby to have to put up with these conditions. The only thing going for it were the friendly staff.

Great location!!

we are definitely saying here again! Perfect location, the subway is literally a block from there, great restaurants and stores around he corner, loved the customer service. I did not ask for his name, but the guy who helped us with our luggage, he's from El Salvador super nice and helpful! We loved it! the rooms are small, but it was just perfect for my husband and I, so if you are traveling with children, not sure if they have bigger rooms. We loved it and definetely staying here next time!

Excellent Location, Friendly Staff

Pros: The Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is excellent.
Cons: This could be a really nice property if someone took a real interest in it and gave it a good cleaning. Sad to see it in this condition.
Location: A five min. walk puts you in Times Square. It was very quite. Theaters beside and in front of hotel.
The location and staff are the only two positive things about this hotel. It is very old and has NOT been cared for. It was very dirty from public spaces to individual rooms. Carpets were dirty and worn, mold in shower, all woodwork was in need of repair/refinishing. Room was tiny but adequate if it had been really clean. Would not stay here again, for sure.

Cozy hotel by Broadway & Times Square

This was a family trip with my 5 yr old daughter. I read the reviews before choosing this hotel. It's a tiny, old hotel in a great location. The staff was friendly & the hotel neat. Perfect for a budget trip. We we were only in our room to sleep & dress, so the basic accommodations were fine with us. My only complaint was they had no coffee. But, I was ok getting it from the vendor out front.
