Mayfair New York

Hotel you can tell used to be something. Nice location and place to crash. One of a dozen that charge electricity since they are cheaper than other nicer hotels in the area.

Very convenient location, close to theatre district, Times Square and restaurants

This way my first visit to the MAYFAIR HOTEL. The staff was professional and very friendly which made me feel welcomed. The room was spotless ,quiet and very comfortable. Of course the location is great. I will definitely stay at the MAYFAIR again.

This hotel is ridiculously old and dirty. The heating system is absolutely absurd. It is on all the time, which heats the room over 100 degrees. I was told that the only way to cool it down is to also turn on the AC. This latter was an ancient machine working like a tractor. Two ac's worked all the time, one to heat, the other to cool down, which is an outrageous way to waste energy and ruin your sleep. Carpet, cushions and curtains were disgustingly filthy. The only good thing is the location.

Quaint old fashioned hotel that my daughter and I loved. Bed was very comfortable and the shower was hot. All staff members we encountered were friendly and helpful. Only complaint was that the room could use new windows. Wind could be felt through the sides of window. But the room was still warm enough in winter. Great location!

The Mayfair is located right in the heart of Times Square, and all theaters are within close proximity. The staff was welcoming and friendly upon arrival. Upon entering our room we were surprised at the small size, but once settled in realized we had enough room. The staff was knowledgable about local sites, and able to arrange a private car for transport back to JFK.

This hotel is a comfortable walk to Lincoln Center, Times Square, MOMA, and even Carnegie Hall for hardy walkers, and the #1 subway is nearby. It is far from POSH and not for anyone expecting glamorous surroundings. The room I was in was as compact as you can get, if you know what I mean. Plentiful hot water, clean bedding, no view -- I have paid more for less. Take time to view the fabulous photos on the walls.

The Mayfair, like NY was once a glorious place, fell into hard times in the 80s and fell into ruin.....but not quite....Restored to her former glory, the hotel is warm and inviting, a staff welcomes you with a smile and will hold your luggage until check-in if you are early. The elevator is tiny, reflecting how Americans have grown, and the rooms are small, but sweetly decorated, comfortable and clean. The plumbing is old, but fixtures are new and while the shower head needs some work, we did just fine. The huge hit is the adjoining Cielo restaurant, a warm glowing place to have lunch or dinner, excellent food. Its a taste of old NY, diversity of people, theatre, food, and an wonderful experience!

Being disabled the room was way to small and hard to get around. I had to manipulate to get my rolling luggage into room. The toilet was too cramped even for a normal person and hard to access. The shower was perfect. The staff and overall atmosphere was very cozy.and comfortable.

The hotel is well located, in Broadway and a lot of places can be reached by walk.

This is a small and friendly very old fashioned hotel in the midst of Broadway. It is relatively quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful but that doesn't cover for the fact that this is very old fashioned and needs a top to bottom renovation.The carpeting on the steps is totally frayed, the elevator is small and slow and the rooms have wallpaper from the 1900's! The mattresses are soft which is an issue for anyone with back problems. The computer in the room doesn't work either.

Room clean. 10 min walk to central Park. 3 min walk to timesquaer. 20 min walk to madison garden park chelsea marget probably 30 min walk but its so nice to walk in new york city that you will enjoy your walk. Hotels lobby small but cozy. :) room is pretty small with diseant size of bathroom :) i personally liked it. Things i didnt like maybe the interior of the room, bed was too soft for me :)) and my windows had no beautiful View but over all i did like everything ;)

Always like staying at the Mayfair. Close to the theatre district. Friendly staff that always welcomes me back.

Love to stay at the Mayfair, great location to Theatres. Staff is friendly and always welcoming.

Very good service from all the personal :)

Incredibly affordable price in Broadway District, right next to The Book of Mormon...but very tiny elevator, tiny rooms and poor wi-fi.

This is the second time we have stayed at The Mayfair and we had another wonderful experience! The rooms are so cozy and timeless and the staff are very attentive and friendly. The hotel is also very convenient, just one block from Times and Square and within walking distance to the best theatres. We would recommend The Mayfair to anyone. Full of charm, a hidden gem right in the middle of the city.

The Mayfair was built at the turn of twentieth century, and as such is a relatively inexpensive hotel kept well by its staff and very convenient to the theater district.

Except of one receptionist and the young bell boy the staff working on the front desk were very rude, unhelpful, and their main interest was how ripp us off as much as possible. The was reminiscent of a dungeon. We were traveling for 3 months and this is the worst by far. NEVER EVER THINK OF STAYING IN THIS HOTEL.

I have stayed here quite often in the past and have always enjoyed my stay and the friendly staff. I don't expect a lot, just a good bed, clean room and a place to put my clothes. Unfortunately, this visit didn't fulfill my expectations. My first room, the bed was broken, clothes space low and the chair in the room was very wobbly. My second room had a better bed and an additional shelf I could put my clothes, but the door to the room was broken and the shower door would not close. The staff is still very friendly and helpful, but one starts looking around the hotel, it is obvious no money has been spent on it lately. I was to stay there in May, but I have cancelled my reservation.
