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.

Features

Famed Theater District and Times Square restaurants are near the hotel. 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. Expect classic cocktails, a raw bar and American classics such as shrimp and grits for lunch and dinner.

Too Tiny & No Coffee

The staff were very nice. They gave good directions. They listened carefully to our requests, but did not always follow through. Had to request ice. Complimentary Wifi did not work, only worked in the lobby. There was no coffee available anywhere in the hotel, would be a welcome touch in the winter especially. The room was very small, windows looked to brick exteriors, somewhat claustrophobic. Bed was small and not comfortable. Room was very stuffy. I would not book there again, only out of utter necessity.

Great location, great value, small room

When in New York City, you don't really want to be spending too much time in the actual hotel room, so the fact that the room was very small wasn't a problem at all. The staff was extremely friendly, the hotel restaurant is very good, and the location is unbeatable. It's in the middle of the Theater District and right next to Times Square. Great price for the location.

Cozy means tiny. Convenient is All

The Mayfair makes NY City your playground. Pretend it''s a Pension in Europe. NO Coffee!! Not in the room or in the lobby. Room was tiny. Needed a real vacuuming. Bathroom door was hard to close & door handle almost came off. Only 3 people can fit in the elevator. Lime shampoo = yummy. Charm: check. Space: no. Might even go again.

A place to crash for the night

We needed a place near Midtown to stay overnight so we could take a morning bus from Port Authority. This hotel turned out to be the cheapest. The hotel is neatly tucked at the heart of broadway with a lot of theaters surrounding it. 9th Avenue is a block away so one will have access to a lot of international cuisine. Times Square is couple of blocks from the hotel. The staff was very friendly and took our bags since we arrived early. Later when we checked in, they delivered the bags directly to the room without being asked. The room was tiny but well appointed. Only complaint was the AC unit, which was very loud, but we were too tired to raise the flag. Will stay again.

Mayfair Hotel

Great location. Lobby and rooms are worn out and threadbare. AT&T phone service does not work at all. Staff not rude, but not at all accommodating (e.g couldn't even change a $20 bill). Smoke alarm issues that I will not go into here. Too bad because the building's exterior is beautiful, but inside tho place needs a major renovation.

Lillies Victorian Bar - Times Square. 249 West 49th Street is very beautiful and cozy. The food and drinks were good and staff friendly. Also go to Eataly for the most incredible shopping experience for all food Italian.

Excellent location for Times Square

A simple hotel, a bit care worn, but an excellent location if you just want a place to stay while seeing the sights. Subway a block away, plenty of eating places local. Good well stocked bar and good food attached to hotel. The staff are very friendly and hard working. I would definitely stay here again if in New York.

Better luck elsewhere

Just don't. You can find a better hotel. The hotel is tired. There is only ac in the main rooms (not central air), not in the bathroom which was stifling hot. AC was difficult to turn on. (Had to stand on bed). The hotel was dirty. The only redeeming feature is the staff who let me leave after one night. It sounded like that happened a lot. This hotel is totally totally not worth the money you pay.
