      You're paying for location. This hotel is grubby in the lobby, but the rooms are clean and in better condition than the public areas. Large bathroom and plenty of hot water. My room was tiny, but I don't come to Manhattan to spend time in my hotel room, and the location couldn't be better. I was quite satisfied For Manhattan, this is a good deal if you do what I did and purchase well in advance through one of the booking agencies that offers deep discounts.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Mayfair Hotel New York City



      I stayed for 3 nights November 2002. Location is superb. It is a small boutique type of hotel. I had no problems and staff were couteous.

      There was some water leaking problem in the Piano/Bar area. Not a nice thing but did not imapct my stay in any way.

      Not returning to the Mayfair


      The MayfAIR Hotel was not worth the 3 star rating it received from an internet booking service. The room we had was a dump, and in terrible shape. The shower curtain was ripped, the carpet was dirty and smelled badly. The wood work was dirty. I hated this place, and would never stay here again or recommend it to anyone. No amenities, no coffee service, soda machine, nothing! The owners need to put some money into this place. I will not return. I have stayed in better places in the desert.

      I won't return there


      Hotel is well located and hotel staff was rather friendly. But room that I've received was not worth the money paid. Very, very small and dark. The windows are coverd and the reason for that is, there is no view out of the window, except of the wall 3 feets from you (plus emergency stairs). I've read that rooms has been renewed, but not mine.

      Had to stop the air condition due to terrible noice it was making. The bar that was mentioned in some of descriptions was closed. So there is no chance for any meal, even a breakfast on place. Wanted to run away next day morning-but everything was prepaid.

      A very convenient dump


      Great location but a perfectly dreadful hotel. It would not have been possible for the room to have been any smaller. A cramped, ill painted, dismal room, the windows were so dirty it was literally impossible to see out of them. There was mold on the shower ceiling, the bedspread was torn, the only cupboard (no space for a dresser) had a nail for a handle. The photos in the brochure and on the website are among most deceiving I've ever seen; don't be swayed, there is nothing architecturally interesting about this place. It is cheap, however, so if you don't care about any other criteria, you might be satisfied.

      Comfortable small hotel in great location


      I stayed here for two nights (Fri., Sat.) in May and was delighted with the experience. The internet price was very reasonable for the outstanding location in the theater district, a half block from Broadway. Luckily, I was assigned a room on the second floor which was accessible by stairs as well as the elevator. Otherwise the elevator could be a problem as it held about three people and the staff used it, too. I was alone and I think that might be a key to enjoying this hotel. The lobby is tiny but nice, the elevator is tiny and the rooms are tiny. Mine was not a great deal bigger than the excellent bathroom which was far above what I expected with a hand held shower, big tub, hair dryer and heat lamp. The room was quite newly refurbished and pleasant with a full size comfortable bed, TV mounted on the wall (nowhere else to put it) desk, plenty of lights, huge wall mirror and a wall safe. Room had visitor guide. There was no food service but this is no problem as the hotel is a stone's throw from multiple restaurants of every price and I believe many of these would deliver if you didn't want to eat out.Staff was accomodating and friendly and one desk clerk remembered my name. I really had the feeling that they were interested in pleasing the guests.I paid $236. for two nights and that included all taxes. I have paid more for lesser places. I would definitely return to this hotel.

      Lovely place to stay


      My husband and I went for our 15th anniv. The staff was wonderful, the room was a bit small but they did offer to upgrade us for free. We had some unforseen circumstances come up and had to leave and they refunded our money no questions asked. We will be going back soon and won't stay anywhere else. Perfect Location.

      Nice, quaint hotel in the middle of Everything!


      In August of 2002, my boyfriend and I satyed at the Mayfair for a weekend. The room was much smaller than we anticipated, but very clean and well kept.The room had a nice sized bed, tv, safe, and my iron & iron board which I truly appreciated as I must iron everything. It's also steps, literally steps away from many broadway theatres, restaurants and Times Square. The staff was friendly and accomodating. For the price we paid, this hotel was fabulous!

      Watch out !!!


      Prepaid stay in advance by credit card. Staff tried to keep part of a phone cash deposit paid upon arrival and it took some talking to get the unused amount back.

      Staff charged $2.00 per piece of small luggage for holding it temporarily. Staff refused to call taxi, insisting on using unlicensed transportation of their choice without meter at a much higher cost and very hostile attitude. Carpet was very dirty. Staff is dishonest toward foreigners, think twice before staying here. If you are looking for a bargain, this is the wrong place to look.

      Good place to sleep


      The hotel is good for people who are looking for a clean, convenient place to sleep. It is steps away from 7th Avenue, the theatre district and good restaurants. The rooms are quite small but adequate. The elevator is one of the smallest I've ever been in - If there were more than just myself waiting for the elevator, I always took the stairs. I've always felt quite comfortable (safe) coming and going at all hours. If you are in NYC to work or sitesee, shop, eat out or see some plays, this hotel is perfect. If you are looking for a large room where you can entertain, lounge around and watch tv or simply spread out, you should look elsewhere.

      Small but accomodating


      It was easy access to Times Square, subway stop 1 block, doorman very helpful and accomodating. the rooms were extremely small, but had everything in them like safe, small table for dining, ironing board/iron, newly remodeled bathrooms w/good lighting. Overall very clean and affordable for a Times Square hotel. Highly recommended. Would stay there again.

      Raining steadily this morning when I got up and headed downtown to meet Kenny for our annual brunch at Les Halles on John Street. I went early so I could try for a geocache; I had scoped out several, but one was labelled as a difficulty 4 (usually well above my ability level!), another was a puzzle cache (which requires multiple steps), and a third …

      ... at 300 F. Some beans were roasting as we talked and it was quite smoky. I was surprised they had just two convection ovens which weren’t that big for the whole factory and the same ovens are used for the pastry items as well. From the ovens, the beans are cooled on the trays and then put through a winnowing machine to remove the husks and crack into nibs. All of the chocolate is just cacao and sugar and next we went into a room that had about 10 ...

      Crab dips are just one of the very best workout routines for your triceps, or the back again of your arm. Consider of this exercising as an inverted drive up or a crab stroll. Start out by sitting on the floor with your legs out in entrance of you and your torso upright. With your arms, drive on your own up so your buttocks are off the floor. Lower your arms until your buttocks are just a couple ...
