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.

We stayed here for a family trip to NYC. We reserved a suite. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The lite breakfast served in the lounge was just right with plenty of coffee .

I recommend finding parking using spothero and not the hotel They offer valet but very overpriced. Great location. Easy walk to times square, Rockefeller center, Bryant park and more will definately stay again. Read less

Our first trip to nyc and we were so impressed with everyone at the hotel. The room was great and the breakfast was perfect for starting the day. We had a driver to and from the hotel that was arranged by the hotel. Perfect location!

The hotel is in a great location, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also good. We checked out early but did not have our flight until later that evening and they let us keep our luggage there until the afternoon. They also arranged booking of a car to take us to the aiport.

Hotel 48Lex is located in a great area with easy access to the subway.
