Intimate, European-style boutique hotel in the Theater District
This intimate, European-style hotel is a contrast to its surrounding neighborhoods -- the showy and loud Theater District and Times Square. Where Midtown Manhattan is big and loud, the Mayfair New York Hotel is cozy and understated. Amenities include a business center and around-the-clock concierge service. Special touches such as fresh flowers in the rooms are unexpected in a property of this size.
Highlights
  • Around-the-clock concierge service
  • Next to the Eugene O'Neill Theater
  • Near theaters, Times Square entertainment and shopping

The hotel puts guests steps away from Broadway shows. The Mayfair New York Hotel is adjacent to the Eugene O'Neill Theater and a block from the Gershwin Theater. Carnegie Hall, Central Park and Rockefeller Center are a short walk. The nearest subway station is one block away.

Rooms

Perfect Theater Break

I have been spending weekends in NY seeing Broadway shows for 5 years on a regular schedule and for the past three years the Mayfair has been my hotel of choice. Location is perfect a couple blocks from TKTS and next door to The Book of Mormon and Chicago. Rooms are New York small but there is so much to see and do nearby I don't spend much time in the room anyway. Free wireless, flat screen TVs, and a newly opened restaurant on site add to the value. Staff has always been helpful and friendly.

My favorite NY pizza restaurant, Famous Amedeus is around the corner on 8th Avenue between 50th and 51st. There is a Food Emporium supermarket at the corner of 49th and 8th.

Room was quite lovely.

The room was larger than I thought it would be with all the amenities that I was looking for. I'd go again.

Mayfair

Location was great. Carpet ripped on stairs, wallpaper coming off walls, carpet didn't even cover the floor in room. Staff friendly but not professional - talking with each other and eating while guests were trying to check in or out.

DON'T BOOK PACKAGES WITH THIS COPMPANY

I didn't know that it takes almost two hours to get from La Guardia to New York City--driving in a little bus that hits every single pot hole along the way. Can you imagine how this feels after traveling long distance on a plane? Furthermore, because this companyz arranged for plane times to be too close together, I missed the connection at Dallas. Save your 5 %. I don't want it. . I'll never book any packages with this copmpany again.

Needs work

All staff were professional and courteous. Room was small as expected but we developed an a/c problem at 4 a.m. our last day. There were no rooms to move to and no maintenance on duty. We got a no-hassle refund for the night for our loss of sleep and comfort. A small fridge would be a nice touch. NO amenities but we knew that going in. Seems pricey for the size of the room and lack of amenities. Carpet in public areas and elevator are shamefully worn considering the room rates.

Da Marino just a couple of doors away was a hidden treasure. Restaurant and piano bar where you are treated like royalty and the homemade pasta is outstanding.
