Hotel 48LEX New York

Midtown, New York

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.

The hotel is clean, staff very friendly and helpful, great location. We were very happy with this hotel. It's about a 15 min walk to Times Square, perfect for getting the hop on/hop off buses. Great -- would stay here again.

My best friend for over 30 years and I do an annual fall weekend in NYC. This was our first experience at this hotel, but we will definitely be back. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Awesome room (we had a King terrace). Great location. They even gave us late check-out until 2pm for only $30.

Very friendly staff. Great views from our room. Just wish there was more comfortable seating in the room itself. Parking was average priced compared to street and garage parking. Close to several train stations and restaurants.

Hotel 48LEX has a very location close to a metro stop. Staff were warm and welcoming. There are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are clean and crisp. Hotel is convenient for persons doing business in the area.
