New York City is world-renowned as the greatest center of food, shopping, culture, and art on the planet, but Midtown East carves its own unique place as a travel hub with the famous Grand Central Station. There's plenty to see and do in the neighborhood, but access to the rest of New York is just around the corner.

Our guests like to travel off the beaten path, be they a business traveler seeking a peaceful, central location or a visitor to the city here to see past what the brochures have to offer.
