About Mayfair New York, New York

Classic Midtown hotel with free WiFi, a block from Broadway

A walk to Times Square

Set in Midtown Manhattan, Mayfair New York is a quaint, intimate hotel 1 block from Broadway and its theaters, and 4 minutes on foot from Times Square. The southern edge of Central Park is a scenic 13-minute stroll, and you can reach Grand Central Terminal in 5 minutes via taxi.

MoMA in an 11-minute walk

The Museum of Modern Art, which exhibits more than 150,000 works of art - from sculptures to design objects - is an 11-minute walk away. You can stroll along 49th Avenue for 9 minutes to reach Rockefeller Center, where the observation deck offers uplifting views of the city.

Casual Italian dishes

When you're not dining in Little Italy, you can savor pizza and pasta in the rustic wood dining room at Cielo restaurant. There’s a 24-hour front desk to help with tour bookings, while the tufted club chairs of the lobby area are a nice spot to relax with a book.

Classic decor + free WiFi

Classic French prints and custom furniture create an Old World feel in the modest-sized rooms, where beds are topped with premium linens. All guestrooms are smoke-free and offer free WiFi, cable TV, and safes, while some accommodations have luxe marble baths and LCD TVs.

Great Location on a Budget!
This is one of my favorite hotels. The staff is friendly and efficient. It is a small hotel in a great location. Walk to Times Square, all the theatres ,shopping and dozens of restaurants. It has a wonderful Italian restaurant (pizzas and the mozzarella appetizer and spaghetti w/sausage are my favorites) and friendly bar on the premises. The rooms are small but clean. Beds are comfortable. There is reduced rate parking available. Walk to either corner for a quick cab or bus transportation. There is a supermarket on the corner for last minute stuff you may need. Did I mention a perfect location?

You are paying for location
The Mayfair is an old no frills hotel in the heart of Manhattan and 2 blocks from Times Square. Carpet, rooms and elevator has seen a few years (or decades). The room we were in was tiny (2 of us). The queen bed was comfortable. For the price, we knew what we were getting...but mainly we chose it for location, location, location. Cielo, the restaurant attached to the hotel had good food and was about the price you would expect for mid-scale Italian restaurant in NYC.

Old and rundown
Worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Elevator didn’t work, no bellman. Had to carry our bags up the stairs. Property old and rundown. More like a hostel than a hotel. Great location, but not worth staying in a dark, dingy and rundown room.

Cheap and quiet in the midst of Times Square
Right next door to The Book of Mormon and across the street from Chicago, the Mayfair is in the heart of the theater district in Manhattan. Exciting, busy, crowded and noisy but,once inside the Mayfair, it was very quiet in my room and quite cozy. A tiny room but with everything I needed including a very up-to-date bathroom, good wi-if and a comfortable bed. The Mayfair has a bit of a threadbare feeling and most of the people staying there are foreign tourists. Subway entrances were close by, restaurants were plentiful and I would stay there again if I needed to be in that area of New York City
