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

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.

Amazing location...nice hotel, just small.

This is a cute boutique hotel right in the heart of the Theatre District. The location is superb. The hotel room itself is extremely small, but for as little as we were in the room it worked for us. The staff was friendly, and worked for our budget.

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.

Totally Disappointed!!!!!

Regretably, the only thing extraordinary about the Mayfair is the location. Literally, it's a distance of feet from the theaters and time square. The amenities were horrible. The air conditioning in my room was not working well. Then, it completely stopped working. I was told there was nothing they could do, until the next day. The room was so hot that I could not sleep in it. I got up in the middle of the night and was tempted to sleep in the lobby, because it was so hot. The next evening, my last night there, I was put into a better room. I repeatedly asked for and try to contact a manager, after I got home. Still unsuccessful. The desk clerk seemed very aloof and uncaring about my situation. Extremely slow internet service, moldy smells, tiny rooms and dirty carpets.

Excelent location, good price

The rooms may be small, but in NYC you really aren't there other than to sleep. The rooms are clean and the staff is very nice and professional. The best part of this hotel is the location, right in midtown, a short walk to everything there and within a block of almost all the subway lines.

Good for singles or close couples

Location is terrific - rooms are clean & staff is friendly. If you need a lot of space or natural sunlight look elsewhere, but for a basic clean room this is a good choice. Just be aware that spatially the rooms are beyond cozy. But how much time are you really going to be spending in the hotel anyway?

Lilly Langtry's across the street is a lovely place for a drink or light meal. Their corn chowder is great.

A vintage jewel in the heart of the theatre distrct

I loved this hotel. Yes, my room was tiny BUT tis is New York not suburbia. The lobby was intimate and warm. The room was beautiful,clean and well appointed. The staff was personable and helpful.
