Birthday Treat

Ideal location for short break as ten minute walk to most attractions within midtown. Good sized room on 22nd floor with nice city views, nothing really to fault. Just remember to ask for coffee machine for room (FOC) as downstairs cafe can get expensive!

Disappointing For Price

Even for Midtown, expected a somewhat larger room with more amenities for the price. Housekeeping was very disappointing: serviced the room late in afternoon, did not leave full sets of linens on any day, didn't always remove trash and dirty glasses, socialized and made lots of noise in hallways when guests were sleeping.

business in New York

I would stay at this hotel again. The room was smallish but it had everything that I needed to be comfortable. There was a Starbucks on the main floor so it was convenient in the morning to get out there and get going. It was close to everything that I needed within walking distance. I thought it was a good value.

Wonderful jazzy place

My wife and I wanted a weekend getaway in the city, and chose the Lexington for it's proximity to the Theater District. The Jazz-age elements of the hotel struck us immediately—the architecture, decor and artwork. It was like stepping into another world, a New York of a bygone glorious era. Our room was cozy and we had a great stay. The prices were reasonable, too. Highly recommended!
