The hotel

As its name gives away, Hotel 48LEX sits on the corner of Lexington Avenue and 48th Street, in the thick of Midtown Manhattan’s social and sightseeing scenes. But the name doesn’t give away all its attractions. A deluxe four diamond urban sanctuary, your chic guest room’s designed to feel like a Manhattan apartment, dressed in muted charcoals and cloud whites, complete with silver linings. Inside your residential-style lodgings, essentials like a kitchenette are accompanied by luxuries like floor-to-ceiling city views, pantries with Dean & DeLuca goodies, and free PressReader access. Tearing yourself from your ‘apartment’ rewards you with complimentary breakfasts and wine and artisanal cheese receptions in The Lounge, with its cool cocktail bar; and modern American bistro dishes at Lexington Brass, whose famous brunches feature a ‘Make your own Bloody Mary’ bar.

Hotel located in a great area. Staff was very welcoming and friendly. Room was clean just a bit small and the heat wasn’t as warm. Shopping and restaurants close by. The restaurant located at the hotel has very good food👍🏾 Breakfast bar didn’t have too much to select from for breakfast. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Really enjoyed our stay! We booked a non-refundable advanced pay stay for the Queen room for three nights , and asked for an upgrade when we arrived, and got one!

If I had to find something to fix, it’d be a deeper fridge (had to ask hotel for to-go containers since our pizza box wouldn’t fit) and a quieter heater. I’ll definitely stay here again! Read less

This is truly an excellent hotel and I stay here whenever visiting our office in NYC. The staff is outstanding and rooms are wonderful. I hesitate going on too much about it because I'd like to keep it a secret!

Hotel and location ok. Nice staff. Janee, Thomas and Malvina were especially helpful and friendly - really enjoyed their company. Some interruptions with breakfast. Vague idea about coffee - whole concept/ knowledge needs improvement. I found bed / pillows very comfortable that is not always the case even for good hotels.
