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.

Simple, can't beat price and location

There isn't anything super exciting about this hotel, however it is in an amazing location, for the most part kept clean, and you can't beat the price.If you're just going to NYC for a simple one or 2 night get away like I did and aren't to picky about where you sleep, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Small But Cool

Although the room was pretty small, it was very comfortable and the temperature of the room was easy to adjust. The shower was pretty good as well. There's a flat screen TV mounted on the wall for easy viewing. The hotel is older, and it has some rough edges, but who cares? I was just looking for a fairly decent place to hang my hat for a couple of nights. There were two theaters (plays) within 50 yards of the hotel and there were places to eat in and around the hotel. I'll be back again next year.

great location

if you want to watch "the book of mormon" the theater is right next door to the mayfair hotel!! Other than that times square and the subway are only a block away.

NYC For a Day

The Mayfair is in an excellent location, in Midtown next to the Theater District. The rooms are very small, but seriously if you're in NYC and plan to stay in your room the whole time, you're in the wrong city. Overall, the hotel was good in terms of cleanliness and charm. The main negative is the staff was very rude. The front desk associate (black female, 5'7", medium build, French descent) was cold and argumentative. When we needed a taxi to the airport, the doorman insisted we take a private car which would've been almost $20 more than the taxi ended up being (including tip). When we declined, his demeanor tightened up. If you're looking for a hotel under $400 in a great location and are willing to put up with rude service and tiny accommodations, then this is an good place to stay.
