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
Location

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

Unwind in European-style rooms that feature toile wallpaper, custom-designed mahogany furniture and fine linens. Some rooms have marble bathrooms. Rooms are equipped with hairdryers, ironing boards and complimentary wall safes. Rooms with a computer and printers are available upon request.

Ellen's Stardust Diner on Broadway is open all day and features classics like meatloaf and chicken potpie and a singing waitstaff. Gallagher's Steakhouse serves classic New York steakhouse specialties include dry-aged steak and lobster for lunch and dinner. Visit Bobby Flay's Bar Americain for star chef power.

Right location, but....

The location is perfect and the staff were very helpful and knowledgable. That said, the room was not great. I wasn't expecting the Taj Mahal, given the great price. That said, the wallpaper was peeling off the wall and there was no way to control the heat in the room, so it was stifling.

Watch out for the $4/day surcharge

Found an extra $4 charged to my credit card after I came home from my (prepaid) stay. When I called the hotel, they explained it was a fuel surcharge "because gas and oil are so high." Would have been nice to know this ahead of time.

Good location, BOGUS surcharges

The location was great for the money, but they hit us with a bogus "Fuel Surcharge" of $4/night for 'heating the room'...Not cool.

A small room to sleep in NYC

I've stayed at the Mayfair a few times because it's inexpensive, the staff is friendly. Because I'm usually traveling around the city during the day and return at night just to sleep, it works for me. I don't mind the threadbare carpets or the tiny room. It's quiet and in a good midtown location off of Broadway. Only real drawback is that subway connections to the East Side can be complicated. Otherwise, it works fine for sleeping.

A sweet and cozy, but old hotel

This hotel has a lot of charm but needs some renovating. The room itself was very small, but not a problem if you are traveling solo. There was something about this cute little hotel that was very nice and homey while traveling in NYC. Although I rated only 3 stars, I would definitely recommend this place if it was going for a good price (under $100/night).

Great Stay

Hotel was great and so was the staff. Only issue was the Budget Parking that they recommended, price I was given was not the price I was charged. Parking garage attends were rude. I was quoted a price of $25.00 for 24 hours and was charged $40.00 when I was parked there for less then 18 hours. Other then that the stay was great!

overnight business trip

Great location near Times Square, the Theater District and within walking distance of many NYC attractions. The hotel was fine, but the room was easily the smallest I have ever stayed in. Not much room for anything other than the bed. The wallpaper and curtains were very busy, European maybe, but wasn't to my taste. Was a pleasant stay and I got a great rate for a NYC hotel.
