    Lovely hotel

    My boyfriend and I stayed at the Seton Hotel for our night in Manhattan. It was very clean and safe. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect for our needs; a little small but still lovely. Everything was updated and very clean. It would’ve been even better if the price was a little lower. We would definelty stay here again.

    A little overpriced, but great quality.

    Shared bathroom ...

    Location was excellent. Front desk clerk gave us perfect recommendation for breakfast.

    I had no idea what to expect of a shared bathroom. It was fine, but I probably will not do it again.

    Incredible Value/Location

    The cost for this location is incredible. Short walk to Times Square/Madison Square Garden/Empire State Building/Rockefeller Center/etc. Room was very clean, as was the shared bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful.

    Bed was small for trying to fit 2 people, so I just slept on the floor.

    Great Location

    The location is very convenient. I felt secure in the neighborhood. Short distance from Grand Central Station. One block a pharmacy, breakfast cafeteria, Coffee place, restaurant, next door burger place, etc.

    I did not know that they had rooms to share a bathroom. I booked that by mistake but was lucky that they had a room with a bathroom, and got the upgrade for $80.00. per night. The location was worth it.

    Location and Service = A++

    Absolutely great location within walking distance of Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, Central Park, Time Square, and basically anything you need. The subway nearby gives perfect access to any other part of the city. The staff was super friendly and willing to suggest activities for first time visitors. Overall, a wonderful experience.

    The price is more expensive than we are used to paying normally but overall, the price is very comparable to others in the area.

    Great location. Awesome and chic decor. Friendly and helpful staff. Everything was very clean.

    The room had a musty, almost sour smell. There is also a lack of soundproofing. I could clearly hear the conversation in the room next to mine.

    Great Time at the Seton

    Friendly staff, comfortable and clean room, location close to everything. Discount on nearby parking (about half price) when the hotel stamps your parking ticket.

    We had no complaints during our stay.
