Very quiet, likely converted, former apartment building, with minimal amenities. Convenient location on the east side

Perfect Location

Pros: Location, staff, local places to eat
Cons: The beds, and the elevator
Location: 5 minute walk to GCS, 10 minute walk to Times Square, many great places to eat and relax
This hotel was in the perfect location for our stay. Only about 4 blocks from Grand Central Station, next door to Shake Shack, a block away from 2 Starbucks, and around the corner from one of the best bagel places I've ever been to. The elevator is pretty old school and we actually got stuck in in for a few minutes. The room was small but very clean. The bed was a little uncomfortable but it wasn't awful. We got a room with a private bathroom and it was beautifully updated. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. If you are looking for a decently priced hotel in a perfect location, I 100% recommend this hotel. One other strange thing is the room key is an ACTUAL key that you have to return to the desk each time you leave the room.

Convenient, Clean and Friendly

Stayed 4 nights in early March 2018. Staff including maintenance and cleaning staff friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Amenities are minimal but you are not charged those daily “convenience” fees other NYC hotels are charging. Plenty of places for breakfast nearby and Grand Cenral Station and all those subways just a few blocks away. Only reservation is that due to window air conditioning units, in summer I would find the noise and the air flow over the beds deal killers. I would definitely stay again in other seasons.

In the heart of New York

Pros: character and location.
Cons: If you want a view, ask for an upstairs room that faces the street. We were on the first floor and could see nothing but wall through the window.
When in New York, who stays in their room? We didn't, and found the Seton's location to be ideal. We weren't that far from Laguardia, and just blocks away from Grand Central (and Campbell's Apartment). Plenty of nearby coffee shops and restaurants and bars -- catch a cab at the nearest corner to explore other parts of town. Free coffee in the morning, and the courtyard is ideal for catching up on email or looking through the day's photos. The framed poster of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE is a reminder of the Wicker Bar mentioned in Salinger's book that, according to one staff member, never existed. But no matter. This old hotel has the feel of Salinger's New York. When you turn your key -- a real KEY -- in at the front desk when you leave, and then ask for it again when you arrive, you can't help but feel that you've stepped back to a time captured and glamorized by so many, many movies.
