Midtown Manhattan is a travel hub for New Yorkers and out-of-towners – which means you can find some of Midtown’s best hotels scattered all over the area. Visitors can find pretty much any kind of accommodation they could dream of, from opulent 5 star hotels to beautiful boutique hotels to big chains. Staying here means you will be right in the center of it all! Midtown is home to the Theater District, the bottom of Central Park, Times Square and of course some of the best shopping to be found in the city. Here are some of the best hotels – some that are worth visiting even if you’re not staying as a guest!
The Kitano fast made a name for itself as one of Midtown’s best hotels. Located in Murray Hill, it is a great spot to find public transportation around the city and for exploring midtown by foot. The bamboo and paper screens in the lobby feel right out of Japan and they keep the decor minimal, sparse and inspiring. It’s a calming oasis compared to the lively chaos outside. The hotel features two restaurants, Jazz and Hakubai, where you can sample some of the best traditional Japanese cuisine in New York.
Ritz-Carlton Central Park
No list of Midtown’s best hotels would be complete without mentioning the Ritz-Carlton Central Park. The Ritz is known as the name behind many of the world’s most luxurious accommodations but the New York version is special in its own way. Located right on Central Park, it offers spectacular views of the park and easy access to great shopping on 5th Avenue. It’s not cheap to stay here but if you feel like splurging, why not also take in a treatment at La Prairie spa – also one of the best in the city.
Moxy Times Square
Located in Midtown West, this is one of the best budget hotels you can find in the city. It’s affordable, comfortable and stylish. The rooms were designed by Yabu Pushelberg and are outfitted with 100 perfect Egyptian cotton linens and oversize rain showers. You don’t even have to step outside to find food and drinks – the hotel has five in-house dining spots! Don’t leave without visiting the rooftop bar and lounge that comes complete with a topiary garden, putt-putt golf course and fabulous views!
The Royalton is a beautiful boutique hotel located in Midtown West. The exterior facade is hard to miss with its beautiful Roman design and two commanding columns. Up in your room you’ll find exquisite decor and lots of calming colors like soft blues and greys – you’ll feel like you’re a million miles away from the traffic on the city streets. If you’re staying here, try dining at Fourty Four, the lavish in-house restaurant/bar that serves up delicious modern American cuisine.
The Chatwal boasts ‘old Broadway’ glamour with a little contemporary cool, making it the perfect choice for those who want classic features with modern luxury. It sits right on the edge of Broadway so it’s centrally located for any shows you might want to take in. If you do stay here or just want to swing by for a visit, check out the Jazz Fest Brunches on the weekends, which feature actors from nearby Broadway shows performing jazz standards while you eat.
