We enjoyed our stay.

The room was a good size, very quiet and clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was fine. The location was convenient. just a few minutes walk from Grand Central. The lobby was quite small and there was no dining room. However, there was a kitchenette with the room and there were several cafes and restaurants nearby. All in all, the hotel was perfectly adequate and we enjoyed our stay.

Great experience

We enjoyed our stay at the Murray Hill East. We were quite pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the rooms. Ours was huge...large in any city, but remarkable in NYC. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and well-furnished, the location is central. We will return.

Good location; huge suite; nothing too fancy

The Murray Hill East Suites was a good overall hotel for my short stay. The location is convenient and walking distance to Grand Central. The suite I was provided was pretty large and clean. The hotel is a bit dated and its not the fanciest of hotels, but it was a decent value overall for that part of town. Overall, a positive stay.

The best for a good nights sleep.

My girlfriend and I had a great experience here! We had been visiting New York to see friends and been sleeping on an air mattress for a few nights so decided to just get a hotel for our final night. The rooms are MASSIVE, clean, and above all comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and we didn't have a single issue while staying here but if we did I'm sure they would have handled it. ONE NEG: I couldn't get the water in the shower to stay the same temperature for more than a minute. Other than that, perfect!

Great Hotel

The location is perfect, it's only a few blocks from the empire state, grand central terminal, fifth avenue, etc. The room was very comfortable, there was a full equipped kitchen, a living room with 2 tv's with cable. I recommend this hotel to everyone.
