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.

Perfect for a quick over night stay

I stayed here recently for work - I live well outside the suburbs and needed to come to NYC for an early meeting the next day. My office is in Times Square, so this place provided a perfect location and cheap option. All I'm doing is sleeping there and taking a shower, so I will never need more than this place. Place is very outdated, but not a deterrent.

Good affordable hotel

I went to NYC for a conference and was busy all day and came back at midnight to the hotel just to sleep so it serves the purpose.

Location and convenience

You want a convenient location ? Well Mayfair is right around the corner from Times Square. What's better than that? The rooms are relatively small and that's expected for this area. However, it's a room to sleep -- not spend your entire vacation.

Great for Value!

If you don't need all the bells and whistles, this place is just right! I really enjoyed my stay here. Don't get mad when you see a fuel surcharge though. It's still work the value. You are literally right beside Broadways theaters.

The best you can expect in this price range

No one would call this hotel luxurious, but it is fairly priced and well located if you are interested in Broadway shows or anything else on the West Side, or need to be in the city for a meeting the next day. Particular pluses: the staff at the front desk were friendly and the bathroom was surprisingly large and comfortable. The room also has good electric light - you can read comfortably in bed. Wifi speed is acceptable but not super fast. Minuses: the rest of the hotel, except for the bathroom, is like being in a doll house that has seen a lot of wear. My double bed room was not much larger than the bathroom, with room for a bed and barely enough floor space to get around it. The stair carpeting is threadbare and the hallway walls have been knocked a lot. The room windows opened onto an air shaft. The elevator is tiny, as are the stairs - don't bring a large suitcase! If you are seeing a show and need a place to crash for one night, this hotel offers good value and location, but for an extended stay it could be tight.

Definitely not 3 stars!

I've stayed in a lot of smaller hotels around the Times Square area, but the Mayfair Hotel will always be remembered as the worse. Leaking plumbing, rats, peeling wallpaper, and questionable staff made my visit entirely regrettable. With so many other hotels in the area, I would recommend anywhere else. The only plus was the feeling of camaraderie formed with the other guests, as if we were survivors of the same natural disaster.
