Seton Hotel

New York, USA

The hotel

Transformed from an old Manhattan apartment block, the Seton Hotel has kept its ‘privately owned feel’ with one-of-a-kind rooms, and an indulgent shared lounge with comfy seating and a 50” TV. Jewel-inspired colours, modern materials, and Art Deco accents that reflect the nearby Chrysler Building, give it a boutique edge at odds with its favourable price tag. Its price defies the extras too, like complimentary WiFi; and the prime location, just 2 blocks from Grand Central Station. If you’re in town for sightseeing, it’s also just a stroll from the Empire State Building and Bryant Park, and if you’re visiting for the shops, it’s within walking distance of Macy’s and Fifth Avenue.

I go to NYC every year in March for a week with a group of students and always stay at The Seton. Now it feels like my NYC home. The staff and management are excellent and always take care of every thing we need throughout the week. The rooms are small but very comfortable and the staff keep them very clean. Love this hotel!

Hotel was cute and clean. My room appeared to be recently remodeled. Plus you receive actual keys. My room had a bathroom, but due to the many open restrooms in the hallway of my floor, I am guessing some rooms utilize shared restrooms.
