Seton Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good location in Manhattan but the beds are low-grade. Also, the decoration of premium room are old.

After hauling the luggage upstairs to the lobby you are given a metal key(never a good sign). Climb into a tiny elevator through a door. Once you get off the elevator your nostrils are filled with a steamy smell of urine from the shared bathrooms on the hall. My room, my oasis, red paint with a bed from a house of ill repute, slick carpets, and a bathroom befitting of this fine establishment I am hoping for no bed bugs, but I am not too worried because they have higher standards Oh, no closet or iron

It isn't often you see avhotel fornless than $300, much less <200 on Park Avenue. This looked best for a romantic night , slept great . No bar or restaurant in tow house hotel but same adjacent . The shared bath is a non issue as they provide bathrobes and slippers. We pack light, backpack only. It's small but pretty. Used for college visits .Everything close by bakeries , schools, trains .

By far the best choice for the price and location. My husband and I got an economy room where you share a bathroom with the floor which at first concerned me but after our visit,it was the perfect fit for our needs. We spent just a night,and the bathroom was always open. Never had to wait to get in. The bed was somewhat uncomfortable for me since I have a bad back,but rarely do I find any hotel bed that is super comfortable. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They were able to hold our luggage after checkout for a couple hours while we had an appointment to attend. The location is awesome! Its located within walking distance of Times Square,Grand Central Station,the U.N. building, Broadway and much more. I highly recommend this hotel and will be booking here again next time I go to NYC.

Very comfortable, quiet, and tastefully decorated room with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. A great value for the moderate price, close to everything.

Excited travel in NYC during 3N stayed at Seton..nearby cafe and resto ..included just 5minutes walk to grand central station

Nice hotel that is located at a convenient location, clean and tidy.

The hotel was located in a nice area of a walkable city, near Grand Central Station.

This hotel is very, very basic: scratchy towels, dirty carpet, cheap toiletries, paper thin walls, and no in-room safe box. I have stayed at much nicer places in the Grand Central area at this price range. There is one thing that might matter to you: this place is a Fox-free zone, meaning they don't have Fox News. This could be a plus or dealbreaker to you. Hotel management claims they don't control what the TV package comes with, I don't buy it since they have CNN just fine. If this matters to you, you might want to reconsider supporting a business that has so much contempt for the likes of us. I am not coming back.

Nice little room at a good price. Surprisingly peaceful even though room faced 40th.

What a crappy hotel. Never been to a hotel in which the rooms did not come with bathrooms. This is more of a HOSTEL than a hotel. I had to pay $55 after the Orbitz cost to be upgraded to a normal room. I should have just gone to a legitimate hotel in the first place! Orbitz and Seton hotel. What a garbage experience.

I was prepared to have the bathroom down the hall -- and delighted to find a wash facility with hot and cold running water in the room. The room and all facilities were exceptionally clean and the staff pleasant and helpful. The oddities were no reading light near the bed and the axis of the bed was along a wall (rather than headed into a wall)

The hotel was just okay and does the job. It is nicely renovated (especially the bathroom) and has good location. But the room smelled musty upon arrival (need to be aired out). The TV channels were limited. Only 1 elevator.

Charming little hotel with pretty, modern decor in the heart of Manhattan. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect - short walking distance to Times Square, Grand Central, Bryant Park, etc. Coffee served in the morning downstairs. There was no mini fridge or coffee maker in rooms, but might could request them, we did not. We would stay there again.

This is a hotel not a hostel who checks the details to see if thete is a bathroom in your room? I will from now on

Very accommodating and professional front desk. No frills all I needed,

This hotel is small, intimate with solicitous staff. Not a lot of bells and whistles, but has all the essentials in a central location. Walking distance from Grand Central, Times Square, Medical Centers, Subway. Good restaurants of many varieties and price points nearby.

Great place to stay for a short weekend getaway. Very convenient location. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Would stat again for another short trip.

was ok, maid service did not clean room, old fashion key was quaint

I go to New York at least 4 times a year and am fairly used to small rooms. The Seton gave me what was probably the smallest room I've stayed in, with the least storage space. It was bare bones, but bearable for a weekend. There are many better options out there though, and I probably wouldn't come back. They were especially bullish on their cancelation policy when my girlfriend tried to change our reservations, which added to our displeasure. She ended up having to leave New York a day early to start her new job, instead of us getting to change our stay.
